Dragon's Eye / Re: Looking for Friendly Tester Groups
« on: September 06, 2020, 11:37:08 AM »
I'm sorry for not keeping up to date in this forum.
If you still want to play - or anyone else wants to try it out - the game has made huge advances and my local group has been playing it for a year now. Shoot me an e-mail to [email protected] and I'll provide you with download links for the rules.
The only thing I ask for in return is feedback.

Dragon's Eye / Looking for Friendly Tester Groups
« on: February 15, 2020, 10:00:39 AM »
Hey all,

I'm working on a new fantasy roleplaying game. A pen&paper or tabletop RPG. The rule system has progressed to the point where the game is playable and can be run by a GM who is not me. However, it is still incomplete and a few things (some classes, many spells, etc.) are still missing.
That said, I am looking for a few people who have a regular gaming group that would be up for a new system and would be willing to playtest it and give feedback on what works and what doesn't, which parts of the rules they had to read twice to understand and which parts were still unclear even after that, and what everyone in the group thought about the different game mechanics and so on.

My ideal playtesters are a regular group that has some experience in different game systems, is eager to try something new and ready to learn new rules and different approaches to things (my magic system is unlike most of the ones you are familiar with, for example, and my combat system is unlike anything that I've personally played so far).Very important is also that you are willing to give detailed feedback, not just "oh, it played well". I mean detailed. Good and bad points.
Also important to me is that you don't approach this as a one-shot. It doesn't have to replace your regular game, but you should be ready to play at least a few sessions or one campaign, so that you can also give feedback on levelling up and character progress and how play goes at higher levels, because it changes in style as characters grow (you start just above commoners, but it goes all the way up to epic heroes).

The rules are ca. 150 pages at this time, in english. There's a four-page character sheet (2 pages main sheet, 1 page magic, 1 page character background and history) as well.

I will send you the PDFs and you can share them with your players but please not beyond that as the game is still incomplete and I don't want an unfinished version floating around.

As I don't read the forum constantly, contact me at [email protected] if you are interested and give me a few details about yourself and your group.

Dragon's Eye / Introduction and Overview

Dragon's Eye is a fantasy tabletop roleplaying game. You know, the thing with paper and dice.
It is currently under development and in playtesting.
The second part of the game is an extensive and detailed game world. You can find the current game world background here:

There is also Patreon page to support the development process:

I'd be totally up for taking part if there are still spots open.

I am free during the week evenings on your time zone on every day except Monday.
I'll send you an invite by e-mail. If you don't have a Roll20 account yet, you have to make one, but it's easy and free.

"evening" now more concrete: 18:30 GMT+1 with play starting at 19:00

Would love to see one or two old BM'lers there.

There's a preliminary date set for this Thursday (the 5th) in the evening (GMT). Anyone interested in joining in? All you need is a browser, Roll20 is browser-based. Oh, and a microphone. :-)

Agreed on that. Scheduling is often what kills real-world groups, too. I'm having that experience right now.

I would honestly prefer to have more regular short sessions. If nobody needs to drive anywhere, having a 2-3 hour session is worth it, and easier to find time for.

For me, during the week evenings (on UTC+1) work best. That would be lunchtime or afternoon in the US depending on your location. That's not ideal. I might also be able to do weekend mornings, that'd be around midnight in the US. Also not ideal.

But not every BM player is in the US...

Would there be enough tabletop roleplayers here who would be interested in an online gaming session?
I have a concept I want to try - play yourself being dumped into a fantasy world. No character creation - play yourself.
I have the world and the game system mostly ready (it might change a bit during playtesting, but it's mostly stable). I've never run a game online before, only face2face, so if at least one person has experience doing it and could support me in the technical things that would be perfect. We can use roll20 or anything else that someone has good experience with.

Do we get a party together?

So this is a world creation project, not tied to any specific game? So someone playing D&D could just pick a spot on the map and build a campaign around it?

Yes, it's a world. There is also an RPG system alongside, but I'm still playtesting it so it's not public - yet.
But you could also play D&D or anything else fantasy in the world.

BM General Discussion / help Tom get an award
« on: October 30, 2019, 06:56:24 AM »
Hey guys...
One of my other games, a tabletop RPG, has managed to get on the long-list for an RPG award. I don't count many chances to win, but just to make it to the short-list would make me incredibly happy. So if you feel like it, if maybe you even played and liked [explorers]... here you can vote for it:
The site is in German, but simply scroll down to "start survey" and in the first category, pick "[explorers] (Not Very Professional)". It's at the bottom. For the other categories, there are some really good candidates there, you can pick your favorite or you can leave it empty.
Thanks a ton, everyone !

I'm still using QGIS. It is a very powerful tool and I'm probably using only a few percents of what it can do.

And yes, using SMW gives me the same power it did on the BM wiki. Also, it can show maps inside the wiki, once I've figured out how to change the base map source that Leaflet is using, there doesn't seem to be a config option for that, I might have to fork it.
There's a page on the Wiki about the technology - - which I will be filling with more details over time.

There is a new project by me, Tom, creator of BattleMaster. And it is the by far most ambitious yet.
