Expanding my network

I haven’t been posting here that much — partly because I don’t have much to say. But I haven’t been off the internet, of course. I have been paying more and more attention to what’s happening within the RPG sphere. I’ve been forging some cool connections there — not that I expect to get a big break or something, but because it interests me greatly and there is a lot happening right now.
One result of that is that I once again play in an RPG campaign that’s streamed live on Twitch — I used to do this a lot, but it just wasn’t possible to get the usual group together and it all fell by the wayside. Playing in front of a ‘live’ audience puts some strain on your ‘performance’ (because suddenly you have to perform!) but it’s fun to do. I’m playing in a fun scenario in a home-brewed world with a good group of people that brought a nice mix of characters. We’ve had two sessions and I’m really looking forward to the next one.

Meanwhile, I’ve been working on my scenario for The Sprawl, my favourite cyberpunk RPG. I’m getting a group together for the first playtest. The group of former colleagues that I played D&D with also expressed interest — that’s cool, because a lot of players stick with D&D and never try anything else if D&D was their start in the hobby. I am of the firm opinion that life is too short to only play D&D, so I’d be happy to introduce them to something else. And with The Sprawl being based on the Apocalypse World Engine, a lot of possibilities will open up for them once they ‘get’ it, as that rules system is used in many, many different games.
