I hope this is not intrusive.

Iron Edda Accelerated is a Fate Accelerated update to the Iron Edda: War of Metal and Bone RPG.

It is currently at Kickstarter right now. It is funded, it has cleared its first Stretch Goal, and we are working on unlocking our second stretch goal.

We could use your help to get there.
Please check out the campaign. There are some AP as well as interviews on the main page if you want to know more.

Thank you.

Just a quick reminder that the Iron Edda Accelerated KS is still going. We are funded, cleared the first Stretch Goal, and are working our way up to the second goal, where we unlock more new artwork from artist Matt Morrow.

We can still use your support.

Thanks.

It's getting really close and you could be the one that helps us unlock our first Stretch Goal...
We are just a few backers from unlocking our 1st Stretch Goal!
We just need 4 or 5 to make it.

Help us get there, and we can commission some cool new art from a great artist.

Come and join our Holdfast:

Hey, awesome community...we are like 4 or 5 backers away from unlocking our first stretch goal, and we could use your help.

If you are have not backed the KS, please consider, the costs are low, and the game is pretty awesome.

If you don't want to back or can't, can you help spread the word and put a link out on your social media networks?
Trust me, it helps.

Thanks.

Reading The Tea Leaves
Hey everyone.

Next week, we will be talking about games that use what we call the Reading The Tea Leaves mechanics. The one you know best is Star Wars FFG. There is also Warhammer Fantasy 3rd edition.

So games where you roll dice, and then read the results to determine what happened.

But these are not the only games like this... can you think of other games that have this type of mechanic, or something similar (dice and consult a table for their meaning, etc)?

Checking In

+Senda Linaugh and I are just starting on a game that will have a potential for a lot of emotional tension and intensity. Rather than just put in a few paragraphs on 'You need to be safe...here's an Xcard', we want to hardcode safety into the game.

So one of the things we want to have, as a formal part of the rules, is a check-in where when someone introduces some content, that they check-in with the table to make sure everyone is ok. But we recognize that having to talk to everyone can slow the game down, so how can we create a check-in that can be done without slowing down the overall game.

Any suggestions for subtle but explicit check-in?

Next Week's Show -- Character Backgrounds

So +JJ Lanza gave us the inspiration this week for talking about Character Backgrounds. To help round out the topic I have two questions for you to answer. Feel free to answer one, the other, or both.

One: What are good elements (events, NPCs, history, motivation, etc) to include into a Character Background?

Two: What are your best tips, as a Player, for making a usable background for a game?
