Who am I?
I go under the nickname of JeansenVaars. Not an introvert, but much more happens inside my head than what happens outside! I love role playing games, mostly because of the challenge they imply in our head. A framework, collaborative story telling, and a lot of worlds to explore.
The way Role Playing Games challenge us, either as Game Masters or as Players, is what attracts me the most. And lately, since I discovered the concept of Oracles and GM Emulators, I could shift it towards the story-telling side of things, where I could help myself with rules and frameworks, to tell a fictional story by my own, or with friends but without a Game Master at all! This is what I call Solo or GM-Less.
During the day, I am a Data Engineer and a Software Developer. When not working, I read, do some sports, checkout Discord (there’s truly awesome people out there), and play some PC Games.
What are my tools?
I developed many Foundry VTT modules, originally for my own games, but openly shared them for free, since I love the concept of Open Source Software, and just enjoy having people out there, liking and using what I create. Some of my modules, like Minimal UI and Window Controls, exceeded 20,000 downloads on certain releases, that is quite a lot more than expected! For another VTT called Astral Tabletop, I also implemented Savage Worlds and Dark Heresy character sheets, both shared with the community.
For the Solo RPG World, I have developed Mythic GME Tools, a module for Foundry VTT that automates all oracles of the Mythic series, by Word Mill Games. Wonderful!
I’ve got a Page in Ko-Fi, for those appreciative souls that like what I did (mostly because of the Foundry VTT modules). I don’t make much money with these, but I do have costs that I pay with my daytime job, so do consider a donation if you’d like pushing forward what I do for fun and joy!
