We were just updating the Black Armada Hall Of Fame, where we record the names of everyone who has ever supported us here. There’s now been 130 people who have given their support at some point. Whether you jumped on for a month and gave us a few bucks, or have been here for the l ..read more

Rules do not elide
Black Armada
by Josh Fox
1M ago
A rule can be a statement of what you can do, what you must do, or what you must not do, and it may also describe *how* you must do a thing. Rules have all kind of uses. In tabletop roleplaying games, one of those uses is to simplify arguments about how things ought to play out in the fictional situations we imagine and describe at the table. This has led to the claim that “rules elide”, and from what I can glean from the froth and din of internet discourse, some people think this is a very important claim*. But I am going to argue this is, at best, a partial representation of what rules do. W ..read more

1 year of self employment

A year and a day ago I left my office in the UK civil service for the last time. I started a life of adventure as a full time game designer. So far I haven’t looked back! Here’s what I’ve done in my first year: Run two successful crowdfunding campaigns, fulfilled one of them entirely and broken the back of the other one. Built the foundations of a new game system which will form the core of a number of future releases, and commenced playtesting of that system. Learned how to use Roll20 and designed the virtual playroom for Lovecraftesque in it. Created 7 new games through our Patreon and supp ..read more

Lovecraftesque second edition is live on Backerkit crowdfunding!
Black Armada
by Josh Fox
7M ago
Lovecraftesque just went live on Backerkit crowdfunding. You can back it here, or if you’d like to know more, read on! Lovecraftesque is a storytelling card game of creeping cosmic horror, emulating the tone and pace of eldritch horror stories. The game will guide you to create the story of a lone individual who stumbles upon clues to a terrible evil. It creates slow-building, brooding horror that the main character at first dismisses, until all too suddenly it becomes impossible to deny. The ending will certainly be bleak, and the main character is likely to meet their doom. Brand new cards ..read more
