I just got the first order for my roller derby book, Derby Life: A Crash Course in the Incredible Sport of Roller Derby. I definitely cried. After 18 months of solid work, it comes off press next week. I can't wait. http://www.gutpunchpress.com/#/derbylifebook/
Anyone on the Gauntlet played Power Play by level 99 games. I backed the kickstarter but I've had it for a while and it's not made it to the table yet. Wondering if it's worth pushing for it to be played?
I am now officially a synthwave junkie and planning on moving on to the next wave of my total 80s immersion by watching some inspiring 'monster of the week-esque' films. Any recommendations? Along with +Jason Cordova's recommended synthwave artists check out. Miami heat 1984, Carpenter Brut and Irving Force.
OK so here's my conundrum. I've been running DCC for a group of absolute RPG newbies. They like it but I would like to get them to try out looser less traditional games.. I used DCC because it's got the traditional elements people associate with a roleplaying game which some people have enjoyed and others not. There also less actual need to get into a character if a new player feels a little nervous about putting it out there too. We are a fairly new bunch of friends and long in the tooth but I think a little roleplaying could be the next step. I thought dungeon world but I don't want them to think all roleplaying games are fantasy based. I'm basically looking for the post 'what is a roleplaying game' game that will introduce more dialogue between the players... I thought thematically Apocalypse World could be a winner but the it might be a big step... Not sure... Suggestions... Should I just hit them with fiasco and see?
Sort of off topic - +Jason Cordova in one of the podcasts you mentioned a very good history podcast that was giving you life... can you let me know which podcast you mentioned it in or remind me here what it is? Thanks
