A follow up to my previous video on playing games designed by women, when a bunch of dudes contacted me saying they were nervous playing marginalized characters.

Attention Blades in the Dark hackers: a Roll20 character sheet template has been made for you!
*Template for Roll20 sheets for Blades hacks*

So I heard people are hacking Blades in the Dark, so I did a thing which may be of interest to someone here. This:

https://github.com/joesinghaus/Blades-template

is a combination of rough guide and stripped-down version of the Blades sheet suitable for modification for Blades hacks. There are some instructions on how to make common changes — obviously, the further the hack is from base Blades, the more work you have to do. I tried to make it as readable as possible in a reasonable timeframe, but it's still a bit technical by nature.

The code is primarily in pug/SCSS (fancy and less work), but I've added a compiled HTML/CSS ("easy", more work) version. You can't get around coding for modifying it, obviously, but perhaps it's not too complicated.

I left Facebook two years ago and don't have as much online social capital as some. I have more than my neighbor Steve and it's on his behalf I'm petitioning you on G+ for the first (only?) time.

If you feel prompted to donate, please don't give an amount you would miss. If you feel comfortable re-sharing through your networks, I'd appreciate the kindness.

Check it out. A Breakfast Club RPG based on the Lady Blackbird system.
The Breakfast Club, a game of detention, teenage angst, and search for identity, based on Lady Blackbird by +John Harper, is now done.

Below is the link to the v1.0 draft of the game, which should be fully playable by anyone already familiar with Lady Blackbird. The purpose of the draft is to put it in front of more eyes than mine, hopefully gather feedback, then do another edit for final release.

Thanks to everyone who for the past six years has urged me on to complete this little game. I greatly appreciate your support.
And thanks to John Harper for his awesome game, which started it all.

Hope you enjoy it!
