Title: dedicated hack forums
Post by: lumpley on June 08, 2010, 10:57:09 PM
If you've got a hack underway and you'd like a dedicated forum for it, drop me a line. I'll hook you up.

Oh and like I say, I'm calling them "hacks," but I'm pretty sure that's not all they'll be. I expect many or most of them to turn out to be cool, complete, insightful games all of their own.

Vincent, could I get a grab-bag forum for my hacks/playbooks/rules mods? I don't have anything finished, really, but I've got about 30 or so things in various states of done-ness, and I'd like to keep them all in one place.

I know this isn't 'a hack', per-se, but if you're cool with it, I'd appreciate it.

Could the Apocalypse D&D forum be renamed to "Dungeon World" and have me added as a moderator? Tony and I have talked about it, and DW is pretty much just the continuation of ApocD&D, which Tony isn't working on at the moment.

Hey Vincent.

Tried to send you some PMs, but got some weird error messages. In case you haven't seen them can I get a dedicated forum for my Goblin World hack?

Happy just to go with my handle "Wightbred" for now in the "hack in progress by" bit.

What do we do about inactive hacks? I wouldn't mind moving the Set Apart stuff back into the main forum, for instance.
Title: Re: dedicated hack forums
Post by: lumpley on February 24, 2011, 02:39:38 PM
I don't know. I've been halfway thinking about it, but haven't come to any conclusions.

I'd a little bit like to raise the bar for what gets its own forum in the first place, too, but I haven't come to any conclusions there yet either.

Vanilla would handle it very naturally. I wish I could be like "okay forum, make the top half SMF-like and the bottom half Vanilla-like."

Vincent, is it possible to change a subforum name and Admin? Apocalypse D&D is now Dungeon World, and Adam (skinnghost) would like to be admins, as we're responsible for it at this point.

If that's not possible, could we get a new Dungeon World subforum, and put up a sticky post in the Apoc D&D about it?
Title: Re: dedicated hack forums
Post by: lumpley on April 11, 2011, 02:31:10 PM
Dungeon World it is. Moderators: Tony, Sage, Adam. Is that right?

Would you please set up an "Occult Underground" subforum for the Unknown Armies hack I'm working on? There's three threads now and they'll be some more soon and it would be helpful to have them all together.

Here are the threads I need moved over:

I've got my basic mechanics and playbooks fleshed out more now, and it would be nice to get some separate threads to put them up in to see if people have some feedback on them.

Post by: plausiblefabulist on December 26, 2013, 06:57:56 PM
Hi Vincent

(I'm actually not sure this qualifies as an Apocalypse World hack... it started out as one, but I've changed the dice mechanic, and I don't know how far it can drift from the ruleset and still count. But certainly the basic ideas of moves and stats and the conversation, agendas and principles, play to find out, are still in there, albeit transformed. Plus, I like it here.)

Can you make me a dedicated forum for
"Matchmakers and Midwives, Klezmers and Kabbalists: A Game of the Shtetl in Three Acts, a.k.a. Shtetl World"
by Benjamin Rosenbaum

?

thanks!

Didn't realise you were supposed to post here until I re-read the email you sent me Vincent! Sorry about that. Here's what I should've posted on this thread instead of emailing (whoops) :)

I was wondering if I could get a forum for my hack. It's as of yet called [untitled] (inspiring, I know) but I think I'm sort of at the stage where I'd like to get some feedback. Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask! (It was.)
Title: Re: dedicated hack forums
Post by: exit on April 25, 2014, 05:00:43 PM
Should say that I'm actually calling my RPG [untitled] at the moment as opposed to it being untitled. Sorry for any confusion. I can't think of a better title at the moment without it sounding too corny.

Hi Vincent -> First the fanboy comment: AW and its spinoffs/hacks* are amazing. Thanks so much for bringing the concept and rules to the RPG community. It's incredibly great way to give GMs and players a breath of fresh air.

Now to the point of the post: At what stage of development would it be appropriate to ask for a dedicated forum? I've got design notes for a new system based on Powered by the Apocalypse System that I've been putting together for a number of years. I'd like to start getting forum member opinions on direction and decisions to start formalizing the system and setting.

Again, thanks :)

* Is a new system like Dungeon World, Uncharted Worlds, etc. considered a spinoff? A hack?
