Using CarPG for Play-By-Post

First off, if you haven’t seen it yet: CarPG is a new diceless rules-lite RPG framework written by my buddy Matt Bryant (the guy behind Main Sequence.) 

While he designed it  as a game to play on road trips with your buds, I’ve found it incredibly useful as a mechanic for playing Play By Post rpgs.

I’ll keep this short and sweet:

I’m doing some awesome things in my real life that are eating up time from my hobbies. My game time will be limited — my productive time even less. So I’m just going to go ahead and put up this notice that I probably won’t be posting anything exciting on here until Summer of 2016.

I do have some really cool projects I’m working on, but I’m not going to be broadcasting them on here until I have something to show for them.  There’s also going to be a site re-launch when I return, keeping the focus primarily on my work and less on blogging. Hope everyone’s dice rolls true, and loot a few corpses for me!

PS — I won’t be completely out of touch. Any game related stuff I do for fun you can hear about on my G+ Page!
