A brief (4 hour) course to introduce you to RPG design. A section of "need to knows" about game design is included.
This brief (4 hour) course introduces you to RPG design. (No course of this length can pretend to be comprehensive, of course.) The goal is for you to understand the fundamentals of RPG design (which is a subset of game design). For example, what are you really doing when you "design an RPG?" There are at least three parts to that.
The three main sections are an introduction to game design (mainly "Need to Knows"), an introduction to RPG design, and a discussion of the business of RPG design. The primary purpose of the last is to help you understand why RPG design, especially tabletop, is very unlikely to earn you a living
Some of the videos in this course have been released on YouTube, hence the price is lower than would otherwise be the case.
