Huzzah, the Big Bad Con kickstarter is live now and already hitting some wonderful stretch goals, including bring out some great folks like +Julia Ellingboe, +Jenn Martin, +Eloy Lasanta, +Jason Cordova, +Brodie Atwater, and +Darcy Ross!

If we stay on track, we'll also bring out +Mostly Harmless Games, +Betty Bong, and +Alex Roberts!

Big Bad Con is a tabletop and live action gaming convention featuring fantastic games and even better company! We're a volunteer-run non-profit origination that wouldn’t exist without our passionate volunteers, players, talented game-masters and game designers. We'd love to have you there!

New episode with +Ross Cowman and his mother Teri about their game currently kickstarting, BFF!

In a hobby that doesn't aim a lot of stuff at young girls, or often tell the stories of young girls, BFF! is a really exciting game. If you haven't already, consider helping to get it funded so this gorgeous book can be a reality!

FOBOLEX was my first time co-designing with someone else and it was so fun! Also I laughed my ass off watching other people play it (though I haven't myself) which is a good future design goal probably.

This will be available to non-subscribers on DTRPG in a month or two but if you want to check it out now:
Right in the middle of the Star Crossed Kickstarter, we released a joint +Alex Roberts and +Jason Morningstar production for our subscribers on Drip.

It's like an icebreaker, but fun.

It's like a larp, but no one has to know they're larping.

It takes place in space.

We have ONE WEEK left on the Star Crossed Kickstarter and things are getting a bit ridiculous.

You can now, with your dollars, add more Jess Fink goodness to our already adorable game.

The third episode of Star Crossed Story Time is ready to break your heart.

And 3W6's interview with +Alex Roberts explains that dialogue rule, just who you can play this game with, and more:
