This is a great promo setting up Hulk Hogan's Championship defense against the 8th Wonder of the World!

Yeah, I've started revisiting my childhood when working out in the morning.

I mean he did rip it off and Hogan seemed stunned by that. But I am not good enough to know if we was faking it or not.

Another one that I am so sure will be just absolutely amazing to play is Night Witches by the mad scientists with a weird regional vocabulary: Bully Pulpit Games!

I can't imagine anyone not wanting to play as a woman who is so driven to protect her homeland that she helps rebuild an old WWI plane and to fly it at night even in the face of the amazing misogyny and German bullets.

So cool.  
Bully Pulpit Games is raising funds for Night Witches on Kickstarter! Night Witches is a tabletop RPG about Soviet airwomen during World War Two, flying daring night time bombing missions in biplanes.

These are good people doing good things and producing fun games. Support them in any way you can please.
 
I've been working with awesome people like +Jessica Hammer, +Mark Diaz Truman, +Avery Mcdaldno on a new project called Different Play. Our goal is supporting and increasing diversity in analog games.

Our first effort, which I'm so excited for, is starting a Patreon: we're going to find new, diverse designers with cool ideas, and help them develop those into finished games. We've got all-star talent to help out with mentoring, playtesting, editing, and art, including +Lillian Cohen-Moore, +Lizzie Stark, +Ryan Macklin, and others.

We're raising the money because diversity can't be founded on charity. The designers we're speaking to, like +Wendy Gorman (whose supercool game "Letters from Shama" will be one of our first projects) are awesome, and to help connect them to the broader community as equals, that means paying everybody involved like the professionals they are.

So:
* Support the Patreon here: http://www.patreon.com/different_play
* Are you somebody with an idea for a game?  Whether you're published, unpublished, or somewhere in between, get in touch with us at submissions@differentplay.com. We're looking for more designers for the Patreon from traditionally underepresented communities. You can be interested in making story games, freeform, larp, or dungeon crawls, we'll find experts to help make your game happen.

Please reshare this! Please consider helping us out! And in 2015, we're going to have a lot more to announce, which you can see a peek at http://www.differentplay.com

feedback welcome, and please spread the message far and wide
Patreon is empowering a new generation of creators. Support and engage with artists and creators as they live out their passions!

This was a fantastic match. I had forgotten just how different these old matches were.

It's a super cool game.
 
(file under: self-promotional efforts)

Hi friends! If you have a podcast, blog or other publication, and you're looking for an interview subject or guest, I'd love to do it. Since I have a new thing out to shill, it's a good time for me. I also enjoy, you know, having interesting conversations, and am happy to talk about things that aren't what I'm trying to get money for.

Pro wrasslin', game design, independent publishing, "indie games," freelancing, and crowdfunding are all things I'm pretty qualified to talk about, or whatever else if you think I'd be a good fit.

Getting in touch is easy, email me at n.d.paoletta at gmail, or through my website: ndpdesign.com/contact

Thanks!

Tonight continues my list of games that I am reading with glee: The World Wide Wrestling RPG.  Wrestling is one of my guilty pleasures. I even went to Wrestlmania when it was here in the Meadowlands and had the time of my life.

I can't wait to play this game with people. Especially since it captures both the spectacle side of wrestling as well as the business/personal side.

One of those games that I am really interested in seeing developed is one by a group of people some of whom I met through Burning Con: The Last Days of Angelkite.

Not only is it being designed by a group of people whom I trust to create a fun game, it is a setting that I am ridiculously excited about.  I can't wait to play in a sandbox where the end of the world is really nigh, where every choice may extend its life, or may shorten it.  Sort of a modern day Götterdämmerung set in a frightening, horrific but totally awesome world.

Go check it out.

In London on business. Sucks to be away from the family, but the baby bangers really sure take the edge off.

PLEASE SHARE!

As you might or might not know, I'm starting to get involved in the live-stream RPG scene over at Twitch.tv I've run a game of Dungeon World for (the totally awesome) MissCliks and will be starting a run of Stars Without Number next Monday with JP and company at RollPlay. I'm super excited!

One thing that we're looking to do is diversify the cast of these shows. So, what I'm hoping you (my fine friends of G+) can help me do is put my in touch with women gamers and gamers of color who are comfortable with being on-screen. Folks who are outgoing (at least in context) and like playing games of all kinds. Positive people who you would want to see representing our hobby.

What you can do is share this around for me, leave comments on this post (so I can see them!) but really, the best way is to email me (adam [dot] koebel [at] gmail [dot] com) or pass that address along for me.

Thanks, everybody!

I called at almost 10pm thinking I would leave a message but Dane picked up right away and that set the tone of the whole transaction. He promised to call and confirm the appoint at a certain time and he did. He promised that he and his crew would show up between 9:30 am and 10:00 am and they did. And once they got there, they worked, fast but carefully. And they cleaned up after themselves. I can't recommend them highly enough.
