Hi. I'm Grégoire, a french long time roleplayer. I translated some of Zak's blog posts for ptgptb.fr and am fond of many DIY rpg works. Here, I'll be more reading than posting since my english writing is not fluent enough to be effective as a regular poster. I hope we can build a new place of sharing stuff.

I'm Adam. I play, run, and write games. In real life I develop software. I have two big projects I'd like to run in the near-ish future.
The first is a tabletop Fallout (mostly Fallout 4-esque) game, set in St. Louis in 2288 or so (that is, Fallout 4-era). I lived in STL for 18 years and had a good deal of fun building a Fallout campaign around the geography. The ruleset is my own design--I tried to do something that emulated SPECIAL and ended up with something that might as well be a BRP variant: github.com/athornton/rpgexperiments/tree/master/Fallout
The second is a lot less coherent and is going to take a while to gel, but it's going to be a multigenerational troupe game, mmmmmmaybe inspired-by-Nephilim. Maybe it's urban fantasy? Anyway, it revolves around two historical but strange lynchpins: 1) Jack Parsons, instrumental in the foundations of the US rocket program, and also a sex magician and occultist, and the magical ritual he participated in with L. Ron Hubbard shortly before Hubbard stole his girl and his money and went off to live on a boat off the Florida Coast, and 2) that meeting between Leonora Carrington and Alejandro Jodorowsky, which ties the Surrealists to El Topo and the Holy Mountain. We'll also have mimes (Jodorowsky wrote for Marcel Marceau, y'know), and a more modern setting involving the recovery of some of Gram Parson's remains, because it's pretty clear that Emmylou Harris is a sorceress of astonishing power. Probably a lot of _Last Call_ gets stirred in too. A lot of this one remains to be understood, but it takes place in the Southwestern Deserts from just after WWII to the present day.
Jay here and used G+ to get back into gaming. I blog and post my game stuff at vanishingtower.blogspot.com. I used G+ Hangouts exclusively to run online games. I'm not sure I need to stop using Hangouts. Does that go away with G+?
