    Every time Sawyer posts, I wonder if there's that small voice inside his head going, "shouldn't you be working?"

    I feel like he posts this dumb shit to prove to everyone he's doing something, but the problem is it's stuff you don't care about - or worse, it makes you care even less or not at all because it looks like it's really bad.

    TT1 said Josh should leave the business, not everyone, and that is a message I can get behind. Flou, hyperbole in answers is the lamest argument shit in the world.*

    * See what I did there? Isn't it a compelling argument?

    He is working on a game again? I thought he switched to the PoE tabletop or something.

    He does his PoE tabletop as some sort of shitpost I think he even acknowledge it. As for the game I think its Project Alabama? Probably an RPG with low fantasy setting if we are to track his meetings with Vavra, his love for Battle Brothers and Darklands.

    But who knows we might end with PoE 3 the eletric bogaloo

    No, Project Missouri, his small historical RPG project. Project Alabama is Avowed. I might have to split out a thread about this.

    The PoE tabletop thing he seems to be doing in his off-time. He's directing a small project and we're assuming it's an historical RPG because that's what he said that he wanted to do.

    Maybe Kate Dollarhyde, considering that he just posted a bit of her placeholder dialogue ?

    I strongly doubt that mess posted above is part of a historical RPG project; unless it’s an idiotic isekai plot.

    It's placeholder dialogue, as in temporary.

    So, he's going to give a pivotal narrative role to a dangerhair tumblrina? Seems reasonable.

    For those interested, stubs are used to build out the general structure of the branching dialog. Every designer writes them a little differently, but the idea is that they give direction from the area designer to the narrative designer about what kind of information needs to be given to the player through the NPC interaction.

    They are not supposed to be written in character. Some designers will do that anyway, but that isn't proper practice.
