YAYAYAYAY
Steve is so committed to making great games, being a runner up in Innovative Games is a fantastic bit of recognition!
NZ game designer represent!
 
Thank you to everyone who voted for Left Coast: The Short Story Edition in the Indie RPG awards. Finding out I was a runner-up in the Most Innovative Game section was a delight to wake up to.

I'm working on the full version of the game at the moment (aiming for a 2017 release), but in the meantime the Short Story Edition is here:

The +Bundle of Holding has a Hillfolk/Dramasystem bundle up right now, so I'm gonna take the opportunity to share "Monster's Brawl", my (free!) series pitch for the game.

Create a dysfunctional group of monsters who work a seedy fight circuit in the big city, trying to retain some semblance of humanity while they get used and abused by almost everyone they meet. It’s big emotions, big tusks, and big punches.

Inspired by Jack Kirby's gloomy Ben Grimm, the Contenders RPG, and the film Magic Mike, this was my entry in the 2015 RPGGeek Dramasystem contest. I'm really happy with it - I think it will set you up for a hell of a good story full of intense interactions. Take a look!

These games are special.
 
At long last the Romance Trilogy is for sale! A few copies will be for sale at GenCon, and the PDF is available now.

It's been a very long journey to get to this point. From playing games with friends in the 90s, to talking about games in the aughts, to getting the crazy idea that I could write them in 2005 with Breaking the Ice. The world has changed, so it's been wonderful to have this chance to update and re-visit them in light of so much amazing design that has happened since 2005.

Hope you enjoy!

The 2nd exercise in this guide for preparing to face racism with civil courage is a mini Larp. http://www.unitedagainstracism.org/archive/pages/info30.htm
A classmate makes a racist joke. Do you step in? A Muslim woman is insulted in a shop. Should you bother? A homosexual couple is bullied on the street. Do you intervene? Racist insults and violence are very common all over Europe. Many people are afraid or do not know how to react when ...

Friday linky! Rap, capitalism, correlation, illusory reality, Yale, Irish slaves, Obama, Calvin & Hobbes, & moar! http://ow.ly/gAZP300D3zv
Lots going on but I'll quickly share some linky goodness: Via Pearce – an excellent ten-minute breakdown on how rappers execute rhyme and wordplay. Great for anyone interested in words and rhythm – poets & English teachers will like this!

Call for suggestions - games for a group of about 20 people who are mostly not gamers.

A friend is getting married on an island and people are coming to camp there for a few days - he's asked me to have a game activity for a large group in my pocket in case we need it.

So far I have Action Castle and Two Rooms and a Boom.

What else?

Code Names probably won't work for a group that large, but I've done around 10 before, so splitting might be an option. I hear Wits and Wages is good for large groups if run well.

Some insight into why I'm doing this. #rollagainstcancer
This will be a short explanation but if you want something longer then please ask. Everyone I know will more than likely have had their life impacted by Cancer. But who am I? My name is David and I've been a gamer more years than I've not. Considerably more years.
