What is this blog?

The Short Answer

The short answer is that this is my personal journal for the development of the Clout role-playing game.

The Longer Answer

Like many other gamers, I am constantly tinkering with rules and cobbling together parts of other systems with my own rules to create some sort of new homebrew. I have a couple life-long gaming buddies dear friends that patiently put up with me bouncing ideas off of them. When I told them about Clout, their level of encouragement far exceeded any previous reaction. They both told me that I should continue working on it, and so I have.

This blog is mainly for myself. A place for me to "think out loud" as I write up the rules. While I thought the game was fully developed, as I move from outline to text I find that there are weird gaps and mis-matches that need to be addressed.

It's also a place for me to seek feedback and hopefully find a bunch of other gamers that want to run and play the game. A game without players is pointless. I need to develop a community that will enjoy and play the game, even if it is a small community.
