Excited to see coverage of a game coming out from friend and epic game master Andrew Schneider. Nocked! has the option to really explore your own Robin Hood story, a satisfying past time in a new guilded age, while also feeling grounded with meaningful and cumulative choices about how you lead your Merry Men, all reinforced by a plethora of evocative artwork.

This is probably a good year for rereading old Pratchett and getting two some of those books that I haven't yet read.

Always keen for stretch goals that bring in heists or interesting politics.
The final stretch goal for Sig: Manual of the Primes, is now up! Spread the word and we can make this happen.

After holding out for a while (due to busy-ness I haven't had a chance to play original Sig yet) I finally bit the bullet and backed. That and it's a pretty cool kickstarter reward to get to name a street.
Stretch Goal 3 - Deluxe Upgrade

I am super proud to say that we managed to hit stretch goal 2 for Sig and the deck of cards shall be a thing. Next up is a major upgrade to the book itself, with printed colour endpapers (for maps of Sig!) and a bookmark ribbon.

Four days left. Can we get enough backers to make it happen? https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/Jagash/sig-the-manual-of-the-primes

Two things you should know about this kickstarter:
1) Andrew is a master of stories that your characters can make their own, but not necessarily in the way they thought. His style is one where your Robin Hood will very much be your own, but stories often go in directions you don't expect.
2) I've had the chance to see this develop over a few years, and this is a mature project, adding modules rather than developing the core game. The high end options are about exploiting existing and known tools to do something cool. That's a great place to be at and a lot more fun to follow than the earlier grueling stages.
Nocked's Kickstarter is live!

Have you always wanted to take part in game development (but not really, because it's soul-sucking and time-consuming)? Are you looking for a snazzy holiday gift that says "I love you, but I love this neat idea more"? Look no further!

Happy Holidays, everyone.

My friends over a Ling Space are promoting the Language Conservancy for their project 4 awesome video. (Basically a charity that raises money and votes on where it goes to.) If you are interested in preventing the loss of rare and threatened languages, check it out! No donation necessary, you can just vote if you like.

I had a chance to speak with Kai Ryssdal and Andrea Seabrook of Marketplace about the President-Elect's recent threat to cancel the Air Force One replacement project. I was really impressed with how knowledgeable they both were on the issues.

Montgomery county people: tonight, you can weigh in on the design of Purple Line stations! It's over at Montgomery Blair High School from 6:30 to 8:30. Be there to put your imprint and talk about what your neighborhood means to you.

(I'm probably going to make the one tomorrow in Prince George's instead just for coverage and UMD reasons, totally lobbying for Jim Henson refs).
