My works are usually in English or Spanish. I have no problem translating some of them if you like. Just contact me and let me know.
Is a main pillar of game design. Although i have played a reasonable amount of different RPG’s, I have to say my favourite has always been Anima Beyond Fantasy (http://www.edgeent.com/anima/). I am webmaster of a forum roleplaying site too.
I have DM’ed many adventures. There’s certain similarities between game design and preparing a RPG campaign. Jesse Schell (The Art of Game Design, 2008) and Erik Bethke (Rules of Play,2004) both reccomend tabletop RPG as a great source for practicing game design-related skills.
Board Games are a common recommendation for game designers. I have been playing and designing board games since a bunch of years. I have no specific tastes of genres, instead, I really like to give every board game I can a try. Some of them I like, some not, but undoubtly in these years I have learned a lot just playing other’s work and testing mine.
Fortunately, I have a good group of friends and colleagues that would lend their time to try my games and give me feedback, so I cannot but try to improve day after day.
Paraphrasing Wikipedia, A live action role-playing game (LARP) is a form of role-playing game where the participants physically act out their characters’ actions. The players pursue goals within a fictional setting represented by the real world, while interacting with each other in character. The outcome of player actions may be mediated by game rules, or determined by consensus among players. Event arrangers called Game Director decide the setting and rules to be used and facilitate play.
And that is exactly a passion of mine. Writing, directing and playing LARP’s. That’s because is an inofensive way of get an story and immerse totally in the experience. Also, is very good for developing capabilities and skills which will be useful later in my professional life: Leadership, Resource Organization, Time-maganaging, Creativity and Improvisation (that undesired-but-blessed skill).
The range of public I wrote for is as varied as the theme. But usually I think any kid less than 10 years old will find difficult to have fun with some LARP’s.
