The Masks PDF is out! (It's up on DriveThruRPG at this link: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/193258/Masks-A-New-Generation)

Took me a bit to put some of my feelings into words, but I did.

http://www.magpiegames.com/2016/09/16/masks-a-new-generation-pdf-released/

Thanks, again, here, to everyone who helped make this a reality. +Mark Diaz Truman, +Marissa Kelly, +Michael Lunsford, Brooke Carnevale, +Daniel Solis, +Shelley Harlan, +Amanda Valentine, +Derrick Kapchinsky, you're all awesome.

Thanks to that group of awesome people who stuck with me for a year and essentially three massively different iterations of the rules. +Andrea G, +Joe Zantek, +Matt Holland, +blu joker, +Richard Rogers—you're heroes.

Thanks again to every single backer (whose names you can find at the Magpie Games website in the Masks section), to the Halcyon City Champions who went above and beyond in playtesting (who you can also find there on the website), to everyone who's played it or talked it up or said awesome things about it, and to everyone who's critiqued it or given me needed feedback or helped make it better.

I'm super (heh) proud of this game. I hope you like it.

I am running a game of Masks for some of Big Bad Con 2016's lovely supporters—in particular, +Rob Hall, +Jason Tryon, and +Laurel Halbany.

Big Bad Con is an awesome convention in Walnut Creek, California, scheduled for October 14-16. They're going to have a wonderful space, lots of awesome GMs, players, and guests, and more. For more information, you can visit the main page at http://www.bigbadcon.com/ or the successful Kickstarter at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1157274964/big-bad-con-2016.

Masks is a game about young superheroes, figuring out who they are and who they want to become, all while punching robotic dinosaurs in the face. The robotic dinosaurs are important.

It's gonna be a great time!

Masks has been an amazing ride. Just absolutely amazing. We've unlocked so much, and I could not possibly be more grateful to the community for all the support. I am so proud of this game, and I'm so happy to hear so many kind words about it, and to have so many of you pledge for it. My heart is full to burst---thank you, all, so much! I can't wait to dive into the book, and to see what our veritable army of stretch goal contributors will come up with!

Masks is in its last 36 hours on Kickstarter! I'm thrilled, honored, amazed, and so grateful for all the support you've given us over the past month. Sincerely, it means so much to me, and I couldn't be more thankful for every last backer, let alone all the awesome people who took selfies or drew pictures or talked about Masks or let me know who much they were excited by it. Truly---you're all the best. Thank you!

My contribution to the villain selfies! FEAR COLONEL DOGSTAR.
Halcyon City Jailbreak: Villain Selfie!

It's the final week of the Masks Kickstarter and I'm pulling out all the stops! (Check it out: http://kck.st/1kmr9fd) I really want to hit as many missions as possible for the Deck of Villainy. So...MEET COLONEL DOGSTAR. 

He's the last military commander of a vast interstellar navy, destroyed in an epic supers battle, and operating under the belief that the Earth's heroes are to blame. FEAR HIM AND HIS DOGGY FACE.

(Special thanks to my amazing sister +Megan Lapp, without whom Colonel Dogstar would have no face.)

10 days left, and we've hit our stretch goal to unlock Creative Commons licensing for Masks! Next up---The Apocalypse Sonata playset by +darren watts!

Imagine if the Infinity Gems were actually pieces of a musical sonata being hunted by a cosmic power named Ominus. (I would like this thing to happen. Can we please make this thing happen?)

I'm so awed and grateful for all the success we've had so far, and just want to say as always, thank you, everyone! Thank you so much!

If you're interested in indie RPGs, come join the Indie+ Discussion Community! We have a bunch of awesome people there already, and in celebration of that, we're going to release a new anthology for Halloween! 

(For my part, I wrote up a series of Allhallow Night traditions for the City, the setting of our ongoing Chain World series. (http://bit.ly/1PnXZrJ) Featuring such gems as...

"When you first draw someone's blood on Allhallow Night..."

and 

"When you sing an ode to Death on Allhallow Night...")
