Hi, I’m Bear

…and I write RPG systems and content.

I’ve taken on a challenge to publish one mini RPG system a month for the whole of 2019. So far there’s been 25% Of The Time, They Work Every Time – a game about being malfunctioning robots at your own launch event; Lycantropes – where you play as tropes from famous Werewolf movies and try to have a lovely day out in London; This Is A Sad Place, Where Ghosts Live – where you take on the role of ghosts in a house where the residents are sad and try your best to make them happy; and Noire: Elle Est, Elles Sont – where a group of Femmes Fatales investigate the disappearance of an alcoholic Private Investigator.

My first outing into game design was S.C.R.E.A.M, a really simple horror one-shot system,  which is currently available as a for free on this site for you to use with your friends. This is also undergoing a rewrite,  or rather re-think, which is set to be released as a mini RPG in October. You can also listen to a Podcast series, using the basic ruleset, on this site, or on iTunes, Spotify, or anywhere else you get your podcasts.

All of these systems are available for free on this site, but are also on DriveThruRPG as Pay What You Want, with suggested price of $1, so if you are able to contribute, that’s much appreciated, if not just let me know you’re enjoying the game – I love to hear about happy gamers!

Like many roleplayers, my first experience of playing was Dungeons and Dragons. I was introduced to it by a friend of mine and have never looked back. I currently DM for and play in several D&D campaigns, one of which , Shard DnD, you can watch as a vodcast on YouTube, or here on my Vodcast page.

I’m currently working on some more full systems of my own. I like to design concept-drive, reasonably rules-light systems that put a focus onto roleplay, rather than crunch. I’m also looking for playtesters, so if you’re interested, please get in touch via the contact form and I’ll let you know the details.

If you’re interested in exploring a Steampunk world of smoggy London streets in an alternative history of London, look out for updates on Automata Britannica, which is currently undergoing a 2nd draft rewrite; if you’re interested in keeping up with the goings on of the Unseelie Court and the great Masquerade of the Fey, then ask me aboutFeyrieand if you’re looking for some Slasher Horror one-shot fun, then check out S.C.R.E.A.M.

If you’re looking for campaign setting content, then check out Shard, a roleplaying setting and basis for the Shard DnD campaign, a Dungeons and Dragons Vodcast. As the campaign series progresses, more about the world will be posted online, so keep up with the lore and the story by subscribing on YouTube.

Happy gaming, and don’t forget to follow me on Twitter and Instagram.
