    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    Domains of Shadow is a GMless tabletop roleplaying system and storygame designed to tell stories of Gothic Horror and Shakespearean Tragedy that could easily be presented as theatrical actual play performances. It has a heavy focus on facilitating dramatic storytelling through roleplay and...

    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    The Fourth Draft of the Domains of Shadow Guidebook is ready! This one includes some sweeping changes in formatting, phrasing, combat, and the role of the game-master. . The Character Sheet linked above is now obsolete with the current rules, so here are the new character sheets: (2) DoS...

    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    How would the names for the Otherworldly Domains have associations that people would understand though? The Domains don't match any settings in the real world or in mythology that they could be associated with. Could you provide some examples or ideas of names that you would think work? You...

    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    I don't think it's a petty critique. It's not what I expected people to bring up, but that doesn't make it any less useful. The four Otherworldly Domains are themed around the range of human emotions. Their physical environments where themed after their emotional component, not the other way...

    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    Very true. It seems I have not been updating the character sheets when I update the guidebooks. This should work better. Original post has been edited.

    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    Scopa! Took me long enough, but it looks like we finally narrowed down on the issue. I will split up the paragraphs more for the fourth draft of the document. Going to take me a while to complete that reformatting, but nothing about this project can exactly be done quickly.

    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    I am not going to be commercializing this TTRPG, so that really shouldn't be a major concern. All of the fonts I used (Impact, Spectral, and Georgia) extend rights to universal use on non-commercial projects. As much as I would love to collect some money I can spend to pay copy-editors, artists...

    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    Please don't read the following with an angry tone. I am actually very thankful to you for giving this feedback and helping out the project so much. I am only arguing to collect my thoughts and receive feedback, not out of any kind of emotional response. It's just hard to argue with someone over...

    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    I don't follow. What would line spacing do that paragraph indentations are not doing already? It's not like paragraph indentations are hard to notice or unfamiliar to readers. Calling it a wall of text seems like a stretch, given that the definition of a wall of text is that it doesn't have...

    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    I believe you are experiencing a problem with how your computer registered the PDF. The Guidebook should have paragraph indentations, sections with headings, and images. Could you send me a screenshot of what you are seeing? If it's truly a wall of text then the file that I am seeing is not what...

    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    Third draft of the Guidebook is out! It has been reformatted as a PDF and some confusing elements have been clarified, along with other things.

    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    A second version of the document has just been released, and this one includes artwork! Thank you to everyone who gave advice on what other changes to make for the second draft.

    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    I think they certainly could be, one day (though I find the word "genuine" was overkill as well). We're already seeing people give more thought to video games, which are roughly about as old as TTRPGs. And at the end of the day TTRPGs, depending on how they are done, still share more than a few...

    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    I can see what you saying now. I might have gone overboard with the lofty marketing language and lost sight of what I was really trying to get at. I will do some more advertising and playtesting and see if anyone else is interested enough in the system to do some bits of editing. As for your...

    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    I had a feeling this might be the case. I don't exactly have a dedicated partner on this project, nor enough spare money to pay a copy-editor, but I will work to find something. Will make a second post when the second draft is done, but that will not be for some months. Could you give a few...

    Domains of Shadow: Requesting Criticism for an Original System

    Domains of Shadow is Tabletop Roleplaying System that was specifically designed to create stories that would be streamed to a larger audience. It was based on some observations I had while playing in and watching actual plays for other TTRPSs, where I recognized potential in them to become a...
