Scratching That Itch: Oath Of The Ambling Rose

This is the sixty-eighth entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,149,829.66 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it. There are plenty of ways you can help support the vital cause of racial justice; try here for a start. Lastly, as always, you may click on images to view larger versions.

We’re back with another random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. It’s Oath of the Ambling Rose, by L. (AKA Birdhouse Games), and its tagline in the bundle reads:

A paladin that takes their time.

It’s soon clear that what’s actually on offer here is a subclass of Paladin for use with Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition. In fact, it’s one of a trilogy of Paladin subclasses from Birdhouse Games, all three of which are included in the bundle. The luck of the draw means we’ve encountered Oath of the Ambling Rose first.

Scratching That Itch: Electric Ghosts

This is the sixty-seventh entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,149,829.66 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it. There are plenty of ways you can help support the vital cause of racial justice; try here for a start. Lastly, as always, you may click on images to view larger versions.

Once again, we have a random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. It’s Electric Ghosts by greyorm (AKA Raven Daegmorgan), and its tagline in the bundle reads:

Electric Ghosts – a Sorcerer mini-supplement

As this implies, Electric Ghosts is not a complete game on its own. Rather, it is a supplement for the tabletop role-playing game Sorcerer, by Adept Press (who appear to be Swedish). Sorcerer is not included in the bundle, so players would need to get that separately if they wanted to actually play Electric Ghosts. Or, they could do what I did, and just read through the 40-page book and think about it.

Scratching That Itch: Propagating Love

This is the sixty-fifth entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,149,829.66 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it.

For our next pick from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality, the random number generators have grabbed Propagating Love, by Morgan Swampcroft. Its tagline in the bundle reads:

A short solo tabletop game experience, to help bring more love into the wor…

Ooh, ooh, a solo game! That means I can actually play it!

Scratching That Itch: Of Bodies

This is the sixty-first entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,149,829.66 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it.

Here at Waltorious Writes About Games, we know you love randomness. That’s why we have another random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality for you: Of Bodies, by Sascha Moros. Its tagline in the bundle reads:

Excited robots discovering their relationship to themselves and the post-Ant…

The character limit cuts it off there, but a quick look at the full game page reveals that it was going to say “post-Anthropocene”, the time after humans. Players are robots, and, as Flight of the Conchords told us, the humans are dead.

Scratching That Itch: Mythtaken

This is the sixtieth entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,149,829.66 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it.

Once more, we have a random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality: Mythtaken, by Ape Star Games. Its tagline in the bundle reads:

A storytelling table game

You bring the table, I’ll bring the writing about this storytelling table game.

Scratching That Itch: VIDEOSTORE – A Monster Of The Week Double Feature

This is the fifty-fifth entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality.

There are plenty of ways you can help support the vital cause of racial justice; try here for a start. Lastly, as always, you may click on images to view larger versions.

Here comes our next selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. It’s VIDEOSTORE – A Monster of the Week Double Feature by Sinister Beard Games. Its tagline in the bundle reads:

Two 80s VHS inspired mysteries for Monster of the Week

Monster of the Week, in case you were wondering, is a tabletop role-playing game by Evil Hat Productions. It’s not in the bundle, but it is available separately from itch.io. Usually, for tabletop entries, I am unable to actually play them due to a lack of other people to play with. This time, I’m unable to play it because I don’t even own the actual game, just these two scenarios for it. All I can do is read them and offer my impressions.

Scratching That Itch: Ships That Pass

This is the forty-ninth entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,149,829.66 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it.

Our next random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality is Ships That Pass, by Ash Can Games (And So Can You!). Its tagline in the bundle reads:

A Game About Spaceships With Crushes On Each Other

That’s right: it’s time for some spaceship love.

Scratching That Itch: Troika! Numinous Edition

This is the forty-third entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,149,829.66 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it. There are plenty of ways you can help support the vital cause of racial justice; try here for a start. Lastly, as always, you may click on images to view larger versions.

It’s time once again for a random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. This time, it’s Troika! Numinous Edition by Melsonian Arts Council. Its tagline in the bundle reads:

The Other world’s favourite fantasy RPG

This is not an exaggeration. The name Troika! has come up often as I’ve randomly sifted through this bundle, as it seems to be one of the more popular tabletop role-playing game inclusions, and Melsonian Arts Council are open to other creators making their own settings or adventure modules for use with Troika!, or using Troika!’s mechanics for their own games. I’ve already come across one of these with Layabouts & Degens, so I’m fortunate that Troika! proper has popped up and I can see what all the fuss is about.

Scratching That Itch: In Another Life

This is the fortieth entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,149,829.66 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it. There are plenty of ways you can help support the vital cause of racial justice; try here for a start. Lastly, as always, you may click on images to view larger versions.

It’s time once more for a random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. This time we have In Another Life, by Lauren Bryant-Monk. Its tagline in the bundle reads:

A game about meeting your love from a past life

That’s right, readers, romance is in the air.

Scratching That Itch: Layabouts And Degens

This is the thirty-fourth entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,149,829.66 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it. There are plenty of ways you can help support the vital cause of racial justice; try here for a start. Lastly, as always, you may click on images to view larger versions.

Our next random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality is Layabouts and Degens, by Indigo. Its tagline in the bundle reads:

A ttprg zine for doing very little.

I’m pretty sure that’s supposed to say “ttrpg”, short for tabletop role-playing game which we’ve encountered many times in the series so far. I was ready to offer my usual disclaimer about how I can’t actually play without more players, and must render my opinions solely from reading the book, but it turns out I’m off the hook this time. Layabouts and Degens is not actually a game, it’s a setting book for a completely different game, Troika! from Melsonian Art Council (which is also in the bundle). “Doing very little,” indeed! (har har)
