Check out Anna's nano-games. I got to see some of them at Gen Con and they are rad!
Hello, friends. Because my nano-game zines that I handed out at GenCon got such a good response, I threw together a PWYW PDF on DriveThru.

This includes Business Dogs, Cat Astronauts on Mars, and Imposter Syndrome. My favorite game, You Beautiful Fucking Sunflower, is not included, as it will be part of the upcoming charity anthology Love & Resistance.

Thinking about factories in Coalridge from the perspective of the people working there.

Working conditions have got to be the worst. Cramped (to make more room for the work), hot (because of all the machinery), dark (minimal electroplasmic lighting), dangerous (tons of dangerous machines, jagged edges, open flames). I can imagine old Skov songs being sung to lighten the conditions and Akorosi foremen afraid the songs were insulting them (probably true) reacting poorly.

The wages. Silver slugs or something that forces people to stay in the area like food and rent vouchers? Better or worse pay if your Akorosi or Skovlander? Differences in pay for adults vs. children? Based on gender? Affected by disabilities (I imagine a lot of injured workers who have to work just the same)?

Working hours. How long is a slogger's shift? 12 hours? 16? I think the work shifts probably are named after the hour they start, yeah? Sixes and Pearls maybe? Fours and Thread?

Do folks work every day? I'm thinking there is a break, not out of any kind of sympathy for the workers but because they machinery gets too hot, too greasy, too irradiated by the low grade electroplasm that they use to power the machinery? I'm imagining four or six days of work and one day of cleaning? Maybe just one shift of cleaning? Seems like a lot of ways to game that system.

What about the work itself? We know they're working on repairing leviathan hunters. Also that there is a design facility for the sparkwrights. I'm sure they also did steel work to support Gaddoc Rail as well. But other products of industrial factories were textiles (a big one, both cotton and silk), glass making, agriculture, mining, building supplies, steel processing (to remove impurities), batteries, matches, waterproofing, and probably a ton of others that I'm missing. What all do you think is produced in Coalridge?
