#RPGaDay2019: Engage

My primary methods of engaging are sharing art and ideas I come up with, and scrutinizing the ideas of others.

The latter needn't be necessarily or wholly negative, though I don't see anything inherently wrong with that, but then Melissa and I believe that constructive criticism can lead to improvement. Not just to whatever it's directed at mind you, but even future works if it, say, irons out certain behaviors, or gives you another perspective on doing things.

That's actually why Melissa and I like sharing our ideas. It's all well and good if you enjoy them, but we're more interested in any flaws that can be pointed out: we firmly believe that people telling us what we've done wrong, has helped us improve by leaps and bounds over the years.

I otherwise don't really engage much. I simply don't have the time to contribute to and monitor all the platforms that currently exist, or even many of them, and when I do I'm prone to just forgetting about them for prolonged periods of time.

Also, some people can be very defensive about what they've created and/or enjoy (perceiving even minor criticisms or opinions as a personal attack), will try to pick a fight because you, say, drew something in a way they don't approve of, or will even lie about you if they don't like you for...whatever reason (even if it's one they made up entirely).

Often you end up with a lot of pointless arguing and wasted time (especially if you get blocked by the opposition or booted from a group), more lies being spread, and frankly there are better, more rewarding ways for Melissa and I to spend our time. Not to say that we don't like engaging at all, just not much. Best way is to email us: less likely to space it that way.

You can now get a physical copy of Dungeons & Delvers: Black Book in whatever format you want! We've also released the first big supplement for it, Appendix D, so pick that up if you want more of everything.

The first issue of The Delver, a magazine featuring fungal-themed content for both players and GMs (including an adventure in which myconids find religion), is available!

Our latest Dungeon World class, The Ranger, is now available.

Dwarven Vault is our sixth 10+ Treasures volume. If you're interested in thirty dwarven magic items (including an eye that lets you shoot lasers) and nearly a dozen new bits of dungeon gear, check it out!

By fan demand, we've mashed all of our 10+ Treasure volumes into one big magic item book, making it cheaper and more convenient to buy in print (which you can now do).
