GenCon Playtesting Panel

Episode 96 of the #RPGDesignPanelcast  is up, where the excellent +Emily Care Boss +Mark Richardson and I discussed playtesting at GenCon 2016. It is, in fact, the last of the set of GenCon recordings for this year, and it's a good one. Like the Gearheads panel, this was information dense and fast-paced.

Enjoy!

"You can’t really tell from the cover art, but these volumes are massive hardcovers that are well worth adding to any home library.

Novella collection The Found and the Lost, which contains every one of Le Guin’s works in that format, runs over 1,000 pages; wide-ranging short-story collection The Unreal and the Real, whose entries were chosen and curated by the author, is just over 800."
Fans of literary legend Ursula K. Le Guin have probably already heard about her new story collections, but here’s a reminder—and also a heads up for anyone looking to read more of her work. You can’t really tell from the cover art, but these volumes are massive hardcovers that are well worth adding to any home library.

My Indie Gems review of Heroes of the Hearth, designed by +Stiainín Jackson as part of the Seven Wonders anthology, is up! I absolutely adore this design, and am eager to get the extra-depressing WW2 variant to my table sometime soon.

I hope there will be sometime soon! I've played a playtest of one in particular that I won't spoil, but is one of my absolute favourites and I really hope to be able to share it around.

For those who missed this last night, the Gearheads panel at GenCon with +Emily Care Boss  was a ton of fun.

Episode 95 of the #RPGDesignPanelcast , Gearheads, is now up. This GenCon seminar with +Emily Care Boss had a discussion of a ton of excellent games and their beautiful mechanics. This episode was an amazing discussion of shiny mechanics, and the show-notes are absolutely full of links to the various games mentioned. Have fun!

Yet another RPG publishing panel from our Ottawa crew!
 
Episode 6 of the Ottawa Game Publishers podcast is called Show Me The Money! because it's all about the financial responsibilities of RPG publishing. Whether you use Kickstarter or pay for everything out of your own pocket (or both), here are four people with different views and outcomes on this topic.

Obviously, I backed Mashed. It seems like an amazing premise for a game, and the mechanics should do a good job of supporting it. Check it out!

Ask me stuff about it!

Cam is excellent. Share the love.
 
I'm now on Patreon!

(cross-posted from my circles)

I've launched my own Patreon page now to fund my new direction in self-publishing and creator-owned game content. Patreon is a way to show folks my behind-the-scenes works in progress, release early previews and playtesting documents, post design blogs, and eventually publish new campaign settings, RPGs, and supplements for my favorite game systems.

Patreon is where I'm going to start writing and designing SWORDBRIDGE, my mannerpunk fantasy setting, and EIDOLON, which is my neoclassical fantasy setting for spirit-channeling super heroes. And those are just the first!

I would be tremendously grateful if you'd stop in and check out what I have going on there, and if you think others might be interested in it, please feel free to reshare the link!

Chambers propres et l'entroit est proche au autoroute. Malheureusement, la bouffe est bien trop cher et y a pas assez des restaurants de déjeuner proche de la.

I was extremely pleased by the service provided by ADD Printing and Packaging. I required a rather unconventional piece of packaging for one of my products, and they worked with me during every step of the way. They were prompt in responding to my requests, knowledgeable and professional. In order to get very impressive prices, they do print in China. My only warning is to be sure to check that shipping times or Chinese New Year don't interfere with your business timelines.
