About

Hey! I'm Oli from Sinister Beard Games. I wrote Quietus: A roleplaying game of melancholy horror, VIDEOSTORE for Monster of the Week and I'm currently developing Night Reign, a roleplaying game of stealth, guile, violence and devilry. I've also written for the RPGs Trophy and Candlelight, and Codex magazine.

I'm constantly thinking about tabletop RPGs and coming up with new RPG material, and I want to share it with you. This will include new supporting material and scenarios for my existing games including Quietus and Night Reign, sneak previews at my in development games as I write them, and my thoughts on game design and RPG theory.

In dev games right now include a cosmic horror PbtA investigation game, a Zombie World inspired card based dark fantasy RPG a la Game of Thrones, a hack of World Wide Wrestling inspired by The Princess Bride, and a space opera game where you skip past the missions and get straight to the drama and smooching on board your spaceship. SO MANY IDEAS. If you subscribe to this Patreon, you'll help me get them out of my brain. Please. They're really noisy in here.
