Solo Gaming on Rolegate

Nathan Rockwood

I’ve been experimenting with a website called Rolegate for my solo gaming, recently, and I have to say it’s working out pretty well! I actually heard about the site a while ago, but didn’t take a look at it until I noticed a bunch of their users were also fans of the GMA decks, and their developer asked me some questions about the cards and spreadsheeting the contents for web access—and now I am a pretty big fan of theirs, too!

GMA Fantasy Deck Kickstarting August 8-September 4!

Nathan Rockwood

I probably should have mentioned this earlier, but I am under no delusions about the size of my blog's readership... 

I'm running a new Kickstarter! As of posting, we have funded, and now are expanding the community reward (a Deck of Many Things-/Wild Surge Table-esque list of random magical effects) with each new backer!

From a design standpoint, I think this is my favorite deck. Thanks to the inestimable Max Johnson's excellent graphic and technical design work, I was able to include a new field: a set of 120 fantasy images, one on each card. Several backers of the first Kickstarter mentioned that they would have appreciated something like this, based on their use of Rory's Story Cubes, so now there are 20d6 worth of images!

The images themselves are drawn from the excellent resources at www.game-icons.net, which are CC-licensed; for the full credits of the ones I used here, check out the Quickstart Guide via the KS page!
