2020 is fine.

2020 is NOT fine!  But it does fit with the post-apocalypse theme.   ;D

I've got 2-3 ideas; Gamma World scenarios that I set in a futuristic city sandbox.  I'd need to tone things down (future tech, crazy amounts of mutant animals and plants with superpower-like mutations) to more of a Rogue 417 level, but can I make the year of the collapse 2020 and not 2010 as the current edition of Rogue 417 has it?  As hard as it is to imagine 2020 being a year of a pandemic....    :o

Board/Site Issues & Suggestion Box / Re: Closing down the website.
« Last post by ORtrail on June 30, 2020, 12:22:38 PM »
You can only patch things up so many times, right?  My first thought is that for forums you could go with something like, Pro Boards.

https://www.proboards.com/

I don't know the business details, but I assume they take most of the advertising money in exchange for hosting?  It has been a solid website for the Supers! Revised RPG forums since 2014 or so. 

The downside is that you lose all the cool threads; the ideas exchanged and suggestions that build up on a forum over the years.  For example, there are a TON of character builds for Marvel, DC, and lesser known comic books on the Supers! Revised board and it would hurt to see all that go away if they ever switched to another host. 

I don't know how much, if anything, could be moved if a switch was made -but if it needs to happen then ripping off the band-aid is probably the way to do it.

Board/Site Issues & Suggestion Box / Closing down the website.
« Last post by wasahbe on June 29, 2020, 10:49:11 PM »
I have been thinking about closing down / cutting back on the content on tritacgames.com.

A week doesn't go buy that I don't have a freelancer offer to redo it using HTML's 5 resizable windows.  So I know it is dated.  I've held on to the current format out of nostalgia for Richard.

Now I just can't dig up the inspiration to redo it.  In the past, major overhauls have taken a couple weeks of concentrated work, and I will have to switch softwares this time, which will add learning curve to the effort.

Asking for input.  What do you think is worth salvaging if I switch tritacgames.com to a minimal web presence?

NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS / Tri Tac Spotlight #2 is out! Fringeworthy in the Spotlight
« Last post by wasahbe on June 27, 2020, 11:31:03 PM »
Check it out at https://sellfy.com/tritacgames/fringeworthy/ and our DriveThruRPG store:  https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/12036/Tri-Tac-Games-LLC?term=tri.

The Core Team here at Tri Tac Games decided to go on a schedule and commit to publishing a substantial quarterly company newsletter.

Our second issue focuses on Fringeworthy.  Contents include an update on classic Windup tech, an Alt ruled by Supercats, and the history of Grissom station.  Also in the Spotlight are two fully fleshed-out Prime portals, several scenarios, and an overview of Fringeworthy's history and mission.

Issue three is in progress and will put the Spotlight on Richard Tucholka's Post-Apocalyptic titles.  Fan contributions are welcome.

Let us know what you think!

I sent the revised Roman adventure back to John yesterday, and the images for both adventures earlier today.  I'm usually good at adding to an adventure given more time to write, but I'm fairly happy with how they turned out.

Also, I meant to offer to create some area maps using the Other World Mapper software, if any are needed for the newsletter.  Creating things like towns or dungeons are possible, but the bigger area maps are easier and I'm still learning how to use the program. 

For example, for a First Contact Team RPG scenario, I did a quick map of a moon location.





Here is a map I created for a Fringeworthy alternate, where things have taken a different path for the Plymouth, MA colony.

Fringeworthy / Re: Fringeworthy in print format

For smaller game companies, boxed sets would only work if you use a Kickstarter.  Everything paid for in advance.  Though a pandemic could come along and cause issues, but what are the odds? 

There is the issue of a bad print run (where it's not the printer at fault) and that could be very bad, as you have to push the 'bad books' onto the backers or eat the cost of reprinting a corrected version.  That happened to some Kickstarter last year, but I don't recall the details.  Nothing I backed or I'd remember it very well. 

You'd need a place to store the boxed sets while you mail them out to backers.  Some place not prone to floods, or water leaks, or fires.

So, boxed sets, a really cool product with some risk to it versus the POD option.  Someone needs to offer a boxed set POD!   :D

Box sets would not be something we can get printed in a print on demand format, it would require us to have a batch of books printed at a normal print house as well as have boxes printed, then put together by us and shipped by us. If Tri Tac had actual employees that might be a plan, but at this time no one gets paid to work for Tri Tac Games and there is no big office or warehouse to process physical sales.
