DeRay Mckesson’s decision to run is seen by some observers as a step into the mainstream for a national movement that has been assailed for a lack of focus.

People of Earth! The Atomic Robo RPG contains some of the best Fate technology around, but none of that is open content (aside from one or two pared-down derivatives that showed up in the Toolkit). We're only a few hundred bucks away from hitting our "Extra" goal of $45k to start the wheels turning on changing all that.

If you're a fan of Fate's open content — or, for that matter, the wonderful, fan-created fate-srd.com site, which would surely adopt any new material we put into open content — and you haven't backed Fate More yet, I heartily encourage you to do so. Only 7 days to go!

Whether you love Claude Monet or Andy Warhol, a new dyeing trend is turning hair into classic works of art.

Will watch! I am slated to run some FFG Star Wars tomorrow but am concerned that the kinds of things you see on screen in Star Wars movies you aren't going to be able to do with the game rules as written. Someone here mentioned Jadepunk as a great way to emulate Star Wars but will have to check this out too! Although, to be honest, what CAN'T you use Atomic Robo for???

Father to two, game publisher, blogger
Introduction
Fred Hicks is a dad, a gamer, and a game publisher. He runs Evil Hat Productions, and does freelance art direction and layout work for the occasional other game publisher. The rest of the time, though, he's looking after his kids, and spending time with his wife. Life is good.

This is Fred's Google+ home. If you want to fight with him in his home, he will block you, not because you're a dick (but please don't fight with him here), but because his emotional health and sense of peace is more important to him than your alleged right to swing a virtual fist.
