Blue horizon advanced alchemy system

All the Things We Never Play

A Model for Elf Game Analysis and Discussion

In which I try to create a model to discuss any TTRPGS and fail yet still make something that others can use even if only to see how they disagree with it. Why the Hell Do I Care? Because you’ve always wanted to discuss ttrpgs with others but grown frustrated with the lack of aContinue reading “A Model for Elf Game Analysis and Discussion”
