game-storm.gifThe Oregonian reports on a concentration of indie roleplaying games at the GameStorm convention in Vancouver. The article highlights locally developed games Beast Hunters and Panty Explosion, likening the growth in indie RPGs to the Portland music, art, and film scenes. Indie RPGs are typically creator-owned or small-press games and often focus more on the development of complex characters and narrative than on action-packed adventure. An active online community for this type of roleplaying is Story-Games and a good place to purchase the games is Indie Press Revolution.
