Decuma Beta 1.1 Update & More Actual Plays!

Decuma Beta Update:

Decuma is a world-creation tool that uses tarot cards to create locations, character connections and more for your tabletop RPG campaign! (But since you're here, you probably know that already!)

The beta version of Decuma has received some amazing feedback! Thank you to everyone who has play tested it. We've made a few tweaks, additions and corrections and you can now get the updated Decuma Beta 1.1! It's also finally ready for a bit of a larger audience so Beta 1.1 is now available on itch.io too!

The final version will be Kickstarted later this year and the plan is to make custom tarot decks with the questions printed on them. I'm working with an artist to finalize the style of the cards and will release some teaser images soon. Stick around for more info!

Decuma Actual Plays:

Wondering what Decuma looks like in action? It has been used a few different times on actual play shows as a stand-alone game or to start campaigns. You can check these games out on Youtube!

Thank you for your support of Golden Lasso Games! :)


Virgins & Vixens RPG and Decuma Beta Test!

Number One TTRPG on Itch.io:
Our first role-playing game, Virgins & Vixens, was released this week as part of the itch.io Folklore Jam and we are BLOWN AWAY with its reception! It is currently the most popular "physical game" on the site! You can check it out at https://goldenlassogames.itch.io/virginsandvixens

"In Virgins & Vixens, players start out as one of 8 classic women archetypes found in folklore, fairy tales and mythology around the world. These characters have severe limitations - just like the one-dimensional tropes of women found in these types of stories! Through game-play mechanics like Defiance Rolls and collecting Empowerments, the players break out of these constraints and rewrite the tale of their character!"

We have been getting great feedback from people who are checking it out! The game includes a full-color searchable PDF, a printer friendly version without art or color, and a separate file of the custom "storybook" character sheets for the game.

Decuma Update:
"In Roman mythology, Decuma is the Fate tasked with allotting a mortal’s thread of life. Our game is a tool that facilitates collaborative world-building and character connections using tarot cards. It is effectively a game-before-the-game and gives your PCs the threads of life that you can weave into your long-term campaign! Decuma works in conjunction with any RPG system, from D&D or Savage Worlds to PBTA and FATE! "

Decuma is ready to be released into the world! The game that is the "R&D for your RPG" has been through a few months of in-person testing and we think it's ready for a wider audience. You can download the Beta Test PDF at http://goldenlassogames.com/decumabeta and play with any traditional 78 card tarot deck. You can leave feedback at http://goldenlassogames.com/decumafeedback .

Remember, the plan is to have the game be available as custom tarot decks with the questions printed on them. This dramatically increases the speed and ease of play from looking each card up on the charts. This will work well enough for beta testing though! We already have an artist lined up and some cards designed, and w are hoping to run a kickstarter later this year to help get the game to the world in its FINAL FORM!

Thank you for your support of Golden Lasso Games! :)


Updated Cards & Video of Decuma!

Things have been progressing for our debut game, Decuma! We have had a series of prototype decks professionally printed and have been sharing them at select events in southern California. Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers! Your feedback has been invaluable to molding Decuma into what it is today!

We will have a PDF tester version of the game up on the website soon. Keep an eye out for that! In the meantime, you can watch the first streamed play-through of Decuma to see how it works! Thanks to the Happy Jacks RPG crew for testing it out! You can watch it at goldenlassogames.com/decumaAP!

Playtesting at OrcCon 2019!

Our first game, currently titled Decuma, is currently being play tested at OrcCon 2019 in Los Angeles. We are receiving a lot of positive feedback and are thrilled at the reactions from the con-goers! We will be incorporating the feedback we are collecting from the players into the next version of Decuma. There is currently not a timeline for the release of this game.

Decuma is a world-building tool that can be used with any tabletop RPG system before a campaign. We are very excited about its possibilities and look forward to sharing our next steps with you!
