Out of interest, has anyone here written for any tabletop games/rpgs?

Closest I got was contributing to the main Mordheim homebrew group. Think I got a credit in Town Crier for it, although that was for a project I was minimally involved in. Not paid though, although I did consider the last time Onyx Path were pushing majorly for new freelancers.

Yes.

Only small bits and pieces so far, but my monster book and campaign setting are coming along quite nicely. There is a very active Do it Yourself movement among retro-D&D fans and the border between hobbyists and freelance creators is very fluid. I think none of us are doing it as a day job, but there's a small handful of people who have made considerable amounts of money on the side by having their stuff printed.

Why the question?

Well, it's something I did when I was young. Worldbuilding to the nth degree and slavishly studying AD&D manuals of various sorts. Would like to do it again, one day, I guess. :)

I was interested in seeing if anyone here had any experience of it as I'm sure plenty of writers on here have a history with tabletop gaming of some description or another, and have therefore some level of interest in the creation aspect of said games.

One of the things I liked about Mordheim more than other GW games was how easy it was to create your own rules for it.

Also did some fan write-ups for a lot of the White Wolf games. I did consider applying when they posted for freelancers, but I'm not sure I care for White Wolf done the way the present guys seem to do it.
