  • Unexplored Worlds is my attempt to design an RPG campaign in the open. Since I have not rolled a d20 in anger in many years, this is my way to keep playing without actually playing. All posts are written to be system-agnostic, so please use whatever keeps your interest in your own games. Just let me know how it goes.

  1. LOL this was...different :P

    Not being all together savvy on the ins and outs of tabletop games, it took me until halfway through Manner of Dress before I went, "hey, wait a minute..."

    Love it! Something different, a little disturbing, and funny as hell :D
