My name is Jeb. Well, it's actually Jonathan Elijah Boyd, but Jeb is good enough. I've wanted to make a game for a long time, but I've always lacked the programming and artistic skills to do so. Even today I'm gimped in these areas. One thing I do have, however, is a writer's touch for many things. That isn't to say I'm some gifted writer, but one thing I know I can bring to gaming is a story. So here I am.


I made simple games using RPG Maker VX Ace, and learned a lot helping somebody else make their games, but I've never made a large-scale game. I recently purchased RPG Maker MV, and got that book about making an RPG in a weekend which was updated for the MV engine, and hope to start learning more.


I'm inspired by the classic JRPGs like Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger. These were my bread and butter growing up, and would love to make something similar to Chrono Trigger, but on a larger scale, and with a lot more open world features. For starters, I'm in the planning phases of a dungeon crawler, as suggested by that aforementioned book, and slowly build out a collection of scripts for that bigger project.


Anyways. There's nothing there yet, but I will be blogging at The Addventurer's Guild. It's a portmanteau coined by Allen "Prisoner" Firstenberg, and carries the heart and soul of what I one day hope to accomplish through making games—to form a community of gamers, writers, designers, and developers that create the most memorable games ever. Don't worry, I'll work on that plan a little. Anyhow, thanks for reading.

Welcome to the group!


You'll probably be wanting to change that link from actually in the post to in your sig instead. Why the second "d" in the name though? Sounds like a math adventure game rather than a website when written that way.

I can't figure out how to edit my signature, though I assume that's because I'm not a full member yet, since the only place I've posted is in the Introductions section, where my post count doesn't matter.


Anyways, the extra "d" is part of the meaning of the word. Check out https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Addventure for more information. It essentially means that people add to the adventure, creating collaborative storytelling and roleplaying experiences, thus the reason it's called The Addventure's Guild.

To edit your sig go up to your name in the top-right corner of the page and hover your mouse pointer over it until the dropdown menu opens then select "Account Settings", from there just look to the left in the new page for the link labeled "Signature".

I don't know how I missed that yesterday. I even looked right at Display Name, but must have been oblivious to Signature in the list. I went back and forth between Profile and Account like 3 times yesterday. Anyhow, thank you.

Sigh...I can do everything I need for this game but make actual sprites and tile maps for it. Guess I'll look into hiring someone for that
Goes looking for assets, ends up creating memes. I have priorities?
i'm working on finishing an old game in vx ace (the first game i tried to make in vx ace), and it's making me realize how many things i've come to take for granted in mv (like the additional BCDE tile layer and the plugin manager).
It's ma birfday! Gonna chill and work on my project, editing some icons for my compass rn. Later It's pizza and a movie, maybe Blazing Saddles...
I really hope Google stadia/Amazon luna become successful household "consoles" in the future only because I could see it being 1000x easier to get RPG Maker and other indie games on their platforms & if so I PRAY they have gate keepers to keep half baked indie games out of the mix so they don't end up like steam/itch.io with 1000s of incomplete RM projects that continue to give our community a bad stigma.
