It’s often heard off the lips of Drupal engineers and Joomla fans – “WordPress is just a blogging platform.” While blogging is of course a strong suit, it’s only scratching the surface of what we can accomplish. Using custom post types, taxonomies, fields, and metas, we can build almost anything we could want on WordPress, from a storefront to a forum and so much more.

With this talk, I intend to prove the “just a blog” crowd wrong in the most extreme way – by using WordPress and some creative thinking to build out a full-fledged tabletop RPG game system framework, with onboarding lessons, forums, maps, and more. We’ll discuss how these can be set up and developed to understand the how and why, then open the floor for questions. Buckle in – it’s about to get fun.
