Chronic pain and job loss has been a brutal blow to my household income, and I am attempting to make up for some of the loss.  I am running some freelancing with a goal of $1,000 
The question is what can I do for you?

I can run an RPG for you and your friends (RISUS, FAE, Fate, Bids)
I can run a one on one story game
I can run a one shot of West City Supers, a FAE street level superhero game of working class heroes, just trying to earn a living.
I can walk you through a guided meditation
I can help you brainstorm game design
I can playtest your game and provide feedback.
I can be a pair of ears to vent to
I am up for suggestions, if you are looking for things other than the above.

These will be Audio via hangout.
Due to my medical issues theses sessions will be capped at two hours running length.  I can be Paid Via Paypal, and it is PWYW, suggested price is $10 an hour, or $5 an hour per person if I am hosting multiple people.  Please reply on the original post or by direct message if interested.

My paypal is Strathadan @ Gmail.com (remove spaces) Anyone paying more than $1 may choose to get a no DRM copy of one of the following, anyone donating $3 or more gets all three.  Please send me a direct message letting me know which you may like and I will zip you the appropriate link(s)

FARM Champions: a Fantasy RPG with Four Classes, and Unlimited Jobs, giving every character a multiclass feel.  No two fighters need to feel the same.  Mechanics involve a simple 2d6 task resolution.  Suggested tone is village level heroics, less "save the world", and more "save the farmhouse", but it can easily be scaled upward depending on the adventures given.

Bids and MicroBids: An any setting quick play token based RPG.  These games are great for play by post, or low prep games.

DeScriptors: This wordgame story game lets you use your character's collected adjectives for bidding on success.  Search high and low for new adjectives, and take a few failures so that you may add some words to the pile.  Great as a simple party game or a 0 prep RPG, it comes with a wacky over the top Post Apocalyptic setting teaser.

Boycott O'Reilly's advertisers.
 
(K)  Bill O’Reilly and his sidekick Jesse Watters decided that this man, who reportedly suffers from schizophrenia and is perhaps at the lowest point in his life, should be publicly shamed, exposed and ridiculed on an episode of the highest-rated cable news show on television.
"The O'Reilly Factor" continues its crusade to dehumanize America's most vulnerable citizens VIDEO

A few days ago, I asked the Fate subreddit their opinions on a simple conversion of the Mass Combat subsystem for Fate Core to FAE, and since very few people responded, I decided to make my own conversion!

Check it out here.

The newest #Fatreon  project is up on DTRPG! And it's pretty cool, y'all.

"  Nest, by David Goodwin, is a game of rediscovering the magic of childhood—or shattering the illusions of youth."

Some of the cool mechanical bits that I like:

Milestones are individual and are triggered by in-game events—for example, a minor milestone is triggered when you take stress or a mild consequence, succeeds with style on a check where the difficulty is higher than your skill rating, or when you succeed at a major cost.

The GM's Reserve from ARRPG! This adds some interesting and, I think, more fun, stunt selection mechanics. You get 3 free stunts, as normal, and you can have up to 5. But instead of reducing your refresh, it increases the GM's reserve pool! 4 stunts nets 1 FP for the GM's reserve, and 5 stunts nets the GM 2. Tailsmans also add to the GM's reserve.

Talismans are super magical artifacts—limit one per character. It comes with one aspect and two stunts. Taking a talisman gives the GM 2 FPs for their reserve pool. I'm a fan of the bunglebuss, personally. It's a blunderbuss, The Gun That Knocks Sense Into Anyone. Great aspect!

I'm still reading it, but it's awesome so far!

I'd be willing to try this. Fantasy is usually where I go RPGs anyways.

:::::ANTIGEN CON 2 ::::: Can't make it to Gen Con this year? Feel like you're missing out on the action? Born on the wrong side of the planet? LIVE IN FEAR NO MORE. ANTIGEN CON 2! G+ RPG THROWDOWN D.I.Y. ONLINE FESTIVAL IS HERE! 

(Worked well enough last year, who's up for round 2?)

ANTI-GM's :::: In a couple of days I'll put up the CALL FOR GM's to run stuff over that weekend. If you're up for running something sign up there.

ANTI-PLAYERS :::: A week after that, once I have an idea of who's up for running what and when, I'll post a CALL FOR PLAYERS schedule of events for you to sign up to as many games as you like. If the GM gets more players than they're up for running, it's up to the GM to decide who gets to play. Once you've signed up the GM will be in touch with all the deets and away you go!

And if people want to run game related talks, tutorials, or whatever lemme know.

The only rule at ANTIGEN CON is this: be excellent to each other. See you there!
