What was the RPG Pipeline

The RPG Pipeline was a posting board to keep track of upcoming tabletop rpgs from 2015 to 2021 (this Blogger version began in 2019). It covered new English language ttrpgs and ttrpgs going into crowdfunding.

  1. Hi Richard... Just checking if the blog has become inactive? Am I assuming correctly that I need to follow on Twitter, and/or your DrivethruRPG monthly list?

    Thanks for all the work you do.

    1. Hi, Thanks for your message. No, the blog is still live. The big gap since end Nov is solely because of the time I'm taking to collate stuff for the Dragonmeet What's Hot in Indie TTRPGs seminar (which has happened) and the Year in Review (which is still to come). For boring technical reasons, I typically only update the blog intra-month now for itch.io releases and crowdfunding and then add all the DriveThru games just before the end of the month.

      I got shadow-banned on Twitter because I was posting too much (posting every new entry) and so only post the monthly compilations or other news on Twitter.

      The monthly lists on DriveThru will remain and be as comprehensive as I can reasonably make them.

      Just out of interest, how do you use the blog? Do you occasionally check in or get the RSS feed or the daily emails?

    2. Thanks for the response! (I was a tiny bit concerned at one point that maybe something had happened to you. But I checked your Twitter feed, and saw activity. So I figured all was well.)

      Hope the seminar went well!

      Good to hear that the blog is hale and hearty.

      The way I use the blog: I have it in a permanent tab in Firefox Mobile on my phone. Every evening, I hit the refresh button (for some reason, Firefox doesn't operate like Chrome, where you can just pull to refresh). I scroll through every new entry, and when I see something exciting, I hit "open in new tab".

      I got into this blog by somehow discovering your gm-less blog.

      Love your work. Truly thank you for doing it.

    3. Thanks! Most of this blog feels like shouting into the void so it's great to hear that folk find it useful.
      Interesting use case! I never really thought someone would use the site that way. Anyway, thanks for prompt to start reposting - as you'll have seen I've starting adding some of the itchio stuff from earlier in December. I'll look to get to some of the crowdfunding as well - and then do the big upload from DTR just before month-end. The seminar did go well thanks - yet another reminder of the huge breadth of the non-mainstream rpg community out there as we touched on topics that most of the panel and the audience hadn't heard of. I'll be including some of it in the What's Hot 2021 review.
