Hey there, I'm Allie Bustion. I make games, first as a thing to mostly just pass the time but now it's a whole thing. I like to think I'm getting pretty good at it. I want to share what I make and give people an avenue to support me creating more. Some things have fully made it out into the world, like Spitfire & Straightlace, a GMless storytelling game about a pair of cops solving a case. There's more things that are still in the oven, like...
  • Misbehavin': This is a Blades in the Dark hack that I've been slowly working away at. It's alternate history/urban fantasy set in the Prohibition Era United States, with all that entails. At its core, it's about trying to carve you own path and spot, however big that might be.
  • Invisible Strings: You’re the god-like creators and controllers of this microcosm of a world, some small anachronistic demi-reality. You’ve filled it with pawns and bit players and written the narrative. You try to make all of this flow naturally. But reality is rarely ever as neat as that. Greatly inspired by HBO's Westworld, Jurassic World, Choice of Robots, and Dollhouse, Invisible Strings is a PbtA tabletop game where you are a group running a space where fantasies can be made reality. The aim is for a game that is built around Twitch integration and allow for chat audience participation.
  • A GM's Guide to the Tarot: I use the Tarot kind of a lot when I'm GMing but I don't know how many others do. It's great though. So I'm working on a guide to share this sweet GM tool in my arsenal. The rest of my arsenal is pop culture, flipping a coin, and BS... It'll be available as a very low cost pdf.
  • Loaded God Complex: Oh yeah, let's get this Fall Out Boy reference party started! I took one look at Godbound and thought "this is The Wicked + The Divine in a high fantasy setting" so I'm going to make it a thing. A solid mix between Avery Alder's Monsterhearts and Kevin Crawford's Godbound is the end goal here. It's now a part of Parliament of Supplements.
Here's some thing I've finished already, thanks to my patrons.
  • World of Darkness Hacks: I GM'd a campaign of Vampire: the Masquerade and, well, I'm not the biggest fan of White Wolf/Onyx Path's mechanics. So I've been working out some modular hacks for the game to replace systems I don't like or feel like they slow thing down. Because house rules can really smooth out a game. This is now a part of Parliament of Supplements.
  • A GM's Tarot Guide: NPC Generation: the PWYW preview of my full GM's Tarot guide. This has a few different ways of creating NPCs using the tarot as well as some advice for using the tarot in general. It's available on Patreon with any patron level and on DriveThruRPG as pay-what-you-want.
If any of those strike your fancy and you want to support them, I'd super appreciate it! Thanks for reading and supporting if you decide to.

I'll add bonus, patron-exclusive content to past and future games and hacks I make. This includes things like example tarot reading videos and walkthroughs for the GM's Tarot Guide, specific playbooks for the Pantheon of the Wicked + the Divine in Loaded God Complex, and a Westworld inspired scenario for Invisible Strings.
This covers the costs over time of new A/V equipment and hardware needed for better streams and videos.
