Two "PoorStudents" Make TTRPGs.
We are Cohan and Garrett, two PhD students who also make Tabletop RPGs.
Our projects include:
A one-page RPG about a team of bots complying with their code on an overgrown, post-post-apocalyptic Earth, exploring derelict infrastructure, helping animals and plants, and creating art. Touchstones like: Wall-E, Horizon Zero Dawn.
It won: Best RPG Under Five Pages in the Applied Hope Jam
Sockgoblins is an 8-page TTRPG dungeon crawl, disguised in a goblin-sized trench coat made of Socks. You play as a crew of Sockgoblins tasked with finding socks in the dangerous human world. You will run around creating chaos and finding socks while racing against an ever-increasing Trouble Track! Touchstones like: The BoxTrolls, Grimms' Fairy Tales, Home Alone
Acolytes of the Arkane (in development):
A Forged in the Dark RPG about a club of students enrolled in a magical school. You and your fellow pupils will learn how to balance classes and assignments under the looming threat surrounding your school. Sneak out at night, investigate clues, scrutinize suspects and use your magical abilities to solve the mystery and save the school. Touchstones like: Harry Potter, Gravity Falls, Stranger Things.
