My name is Leandro Rocha, long time gamer, lover of good literature and sometimes amateur webdesigner
I’m from Brazil, possibly the only one here, and I admin a RPG community called Rollnplay (formed largely by Brazilians, but the website is multilingual). I am here to discuss, exchange ideas and help with project about RPG.
Welcome! I’m Dustin, the Community Manager here~ So glad you could find us! If you ever have any questions, feel free to shoot a PM to myself or one of our Admin (Mandarific and Damian). I promise none of us bite.
We have a bunch of Admins and Moderators from tons of forums and I’m sure there are plenty who would be more than happy to exchange ideas with you and create awesome discussions~!
Welcome to the Hub! It’s awesome that you’re Brazilian, and I do think you’re our first. Don’t worry, though, we have members from across the globe! So you’re not alone.
Myself, I’m from Québec, and I speak French. :3 I like to pretend I can read Portuguese because I watched a documentary on Nietzsche on Youtube once, and it was in German with Portuguese subtitles and I understood actually a lot of it. But I probably can’t really read it. XD I do speak German, though.
Anyway, I’m the Damian Dustin mentioned, and it’s so great to have you here! Hope you enjoy it too.
The problem isn’t the market but the “niche”. Books are relative expensive (due in part our high tax rates) so is difficult to attract new players. In consequence we are mostly veteran players with little time due to “real life”. This scenario is really bad to expand the “niche”, I am trying to find a partner to my project (in my signature) and after 9 months no one has enough time to join forces.
Anyway there are some brazilian rpg (neither all goods), but they are small when compared to titles like Spirit of Century or Iron Kingdoms. We have too much homework to do
