Q & A Week, Pt 3
I found some ttRPG-industry-related Q&A items that have never made it onto my blog, and thought this week, when I am so distracted and overloaded, would be a great time to offer them up.
Q: Do you think we, as a creative force, have hit a dead end? Can we still produce New and Original material at a time when everything seems to be derived from something recent or a Reboot or Remake? Do we need a Renaissance of the Human Spirit to bring a new Age of Inspiration? Can we still make New works?
A: I think we CAN, and WILL, and ARE.
I also think 90% of everything creative is crap, and always has been, and sometimes the crap is the most popular/successful.
But it’s still worth striving to make New Art.
Q: What would you guess are the 5 best selling ttrpgs right now? What game isn’t on that list that you think more people should know about?
A: My guesses (and they are JUST guesses) are, in order:
Cyberpunk (Right now, though maybe not a year ago or a year from now)
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay
And I think the entire AGE game system from Green Ronin is something more people should know about, but especially The Expanse.
I have a Patreon. It helps me carve out the time needed to create these blog posts, and is a great way to let me know what kind of content you enjoy.
