Welcome to Exeunt Omnes
For people who love weird games, solo RPGs, unsettling horror, and medieval dogs
Since the beginning of this newsletter, I’ve disliked that both the newsletter name (“Exeunt Press”) was the same as the author (“Exeunt Press”). It made for a strange email sender line that read Exeunt Press from Exeunt Press.
So now it is called Exeunt Omnes, the official newsletter for both loyal fans and sworn enemies of Exeunt Press.
Even has a fancy new domain: omnes.exeunt.press.
Do you like weird games, solo RPGs, unsettling horror, medieval dogs, killer curtains, or pretending you are a café pastry? Then this newsletter is for you.
About twice a month you’ll see items like:
Current and upcoming releases
Interesting game jams

If you want deep dives on tabletop game mechanisms and the occasional Python simulation, you’ll still want to check out Skeleton Code Machine. It’s a weekly publication that explores tabletop game mechanisms in board games and role playing games. A few subscribers just received some awesome stickers!
On Tuesday, Substack launched Substack Notes.
In many ways, it’s similar to Twitter. Where it seems interesting is that it is tightly coupled with existing Substack newsletters, allowing for long form posts. They also are saying that it will allow readers to directly support content creators (as Substack already does), rather than relying on algorithms and ads.
Works both on the web and in the Substack app.
Played some more Hansa Teutonica using the fully scripted Tabletop Simulator implementation.
I’ve been curious if, after many repeated plays, the game will become stale or have players always using the same strategies. Even using the same map (there are three available), this hasn’t been the case. Each game has been unique, with interesting strategies and reactions to players.
Although the board has been compared to the color of a soiled bandage, it’s a fascinating game, and I’m at a loss to give a good comparison to another game. Moved up to a 9/10 on my list of ratings, and look forward to playing some more.
