it's a win for everybody if you can't be fired because of these things, because everybody has them.  Opposition to this so often reflects that pernicious notion that "sexual orientation = gay" and "gender = woman"

The Envoy program approaches RPGs in a very unique way - join as a Herald and request a game. We send you the PDF and offer training through a variety of avenues. When you certify with us and demonstrate that you are prepared to run the game - at conventions, meetup groups or game stores, you can then request your next game system. In the meantime, we provide support and resources to enhance your gaming experience. 

Over the next several weeks, we will be announcing exciting perks for RPG GMs. In the meantime, we're talking to the people behind some of the systems in the program and posting little features on them.  

Today, we start with Fortune's Fool from Pantheon Press. 
http://www.pantheonpress.com/fortunes_fool/what_is_fortunes_fool

Fortune’s Fool is the ENnie-award winning role-playing game that uses the Tarot deck instead of dice! Set in a fantastic version of Renaissance Europe, Humans, Elves, Goblins, and more cross swords and cast spells in the courts of Paris and along the canals of Venice. One week, you might battle monsters on the icy slopes of the Swiss Alps. The next, you might find yourself rescuing Shakespeare from a rehearsal of King Lear!
 
Whatever your adventure, success or failure is determined by the Fate Deck. Will your next draw be Strength, giving you a devastating blow, or will The Hanged Man spoil your attack? Perhaps The Tower will menace the table, or maybe The Fool will turn everything on its head. And somewhere in the deck lurks Death itself, waiting to claim its next victim. So set down your dice, pick up a Tarot deck to give Fortune’s Fool a try!

1,200 events is a bar that's well within reach! we're getting there, folks. 

A team is proofing the RPG and War Gaming schedule in the kitchen while +Vincent Salzillo and +Linda Baldwin  work diligently on getting all the board games settled. 

as soon as the proofreading is done, I'm making smoothies for those who want them.

Totally read that as "1,200 events in a bar..." and was wondering just where is this magical place and why am I not there? :-)

I will be hosting my surprisingly popular All Carrot, No Stick panel again at DEXCON 18 on Friday. Time to be added when I get a chance to confirm. 

I'll be shouting out to companies, organizations and projects that are "making a difference". Tell me about your favorite project that gets it right in the realms of representation, inclusion or outreach. Let's spread the word about projects that should be getting noticed.

As a company, we're committed to seeking out and hiring under-represented voices for freelance work. We actively look for women, people of color, LGBTQ individuals, and non-USians to work on our books. This isn't to say that we don't also hire top industry names, but rather that we'd like to see more diversity in who's considered a top industry name in the future. We pay a standard $.05 per word for new writers (sometimes more for freelancers who are established) and we pay on final draft. For artists, we pay on final draft and for reliable established work, we're willing to talk about payment arrangements. Depending on the property, we give artists reprint rights and negotiate based on what we're using it for, so it's not a global arrangement. 

Starting with A Tragedy in Five Acts, we began looking at how to be inclusive in terms of body types and nationalities and cultures, including a trans character portrayed as the Lover character. For Chill 3rd Edition, we pushed that much farther. SAVE has turned from a largely European, largely male-centric organization in the backstory to an international one whose head is now a young Syrian woman named Hayat Nejem. We tried to make sure that our art was diverse in terms of group shots, but in particular with our characters. For example:

Genevieve Ashford: black Quebecois woman (cat-burglar)
Basil "BB" Bottomley: white Australian man (bounty hunter)
Rory Calhoun: white American transman (college student)
Miranda Chase: white American woman (Arizone police officer)
Tyler Copeland: African-American man (self-employed IT contractor and engineer)
Tessie Dillon: white American woman (advertising exec)
Nicole Friedman: Israeli-born woman (jet-setting heiress)
Noriko Frost: Japanese-American woman (journalist)
Maria Gallegos: Pilipino woman, naturalized American citizen (former Broadway dancer, now dance instructor and mother of two)
Det. Hector Gonzalez: Latino Mexican-American man (police detective)
Alfred Johnson: white Canadian man (medical examiner)
Jennifer Joyce: white American woman (newspaper reporter)
Dr. Jong Koo Kim:  Korean-American man (physicist)
Miakoda Lawrence: gay Native American Kiowa woman (soldier)
Moira Malkin: French/Irish Jewish woman (art thief)
Christopher Monroe: gay white american male (drag queen)
Bradley Oulette: white American man (college architect, paraplegic: wheelchair bound)
John Post, Esq.: white American man (lawyer, in his 40s)
Thomas Simpson: African American man (doctor, in his 40s)
Amy Veeres: white American transwoman (IT worker, writer)

In addition, we made sure that a variety of backgrounds, ages, genders and orientations were available among the important NPCs of the setting, and while the ready-made PCs skew American, that isn't the case for the SAVE organization as a whole, with information on all continents provided in the core book. 

Does that help? :)

Edit: +Andy Sirkin found the file and I want to set Windows on fire. 

We just suffered a massive technological failure, in the middle of DEXCON prep. 

Somebody working on a file that is absolutely vital for producing the schedule has been working on it from an outlook attachment, without realizing that double clicking a link in Excel does not save the file anywhere useful. 
She restarted her machine before coming down to give us the data, and the file is completely missing. Even going into her temp documents on her hard drive wasn't yielding results. So we've got dozens of hours of work that need to be recreated. 

We're likely to be radio silent and/or a little fragile/surly/overwhelmed/frantic while we recover from this. Obviously, if you need us, we're still on email.

Your Thursday morning post in favor of fact-based age-appropriate sex ed, from your friendly neighborhood sex ed teacher. OWL is the curriculum I teach, and it is solidly the best one currently available.
What taking “abstinence-only” and “sexuality education” classes simultaneously as a teen taught me about sex education and my own sexuality.

My mom co-wrote the first OWL text. I have a certain level of bias in favor of it :)

Hey, +Envoy Heralds!

Check out the current Bundle of Holding - https://bundleofholding.com/presents/Trail2015

These goodies are a great idea for any GM running Trail of Cthulu as a Herald. Pop over to the Envoy G+ page and tell us all about how you plan to creep out your players.

Since no one asked, I'll tell you!

"Time's Up! Title Recall" is a better party game than any RPG is a RPG.
