A write-up of my experience in one of the amazing games I played at #BigBadCon2018 a month back: Xenolanguage: "five minutes in the future and we've just made first contact … you are a linguist tasked with deciphering an alien language." This is a production by the geniuses +Kathryn Hymes and +Hakan Seyalioglu behind the RPGs Dialect and Sign. No, it's not out yet, but damn it was pretty fantastic even in this beta form. Also: includes Ouija style mechanics.

For the Queen with +Agatha, +Leandro Pondoc, +Vee Hendro, +Hayley G and I: Join an oracle farmboy, the assassin siblings, the queen's mother, and a captive ambassador on a perilous journey to a distant power.

+Alex Roberts: This was the longest version of the game I've played, because all the players just love spinning the bullshit sooo much. Put the card half-way in the deck = 3 hours.

Fantastically entertaining mini-AP of +Gerrit Reininghaus' Tuk Fast Tuk Furious tournament at GauntletCon 2018, with Anna (who edited this masterpiece) and +Jesse Ross. (Also, only 15 min playing time!)

Description from the YouTube description:
----
About the game:
You are a Tuk Tuk driver. Your goal is to win the race and get a prize.

Tasks:
- Describe your character & how you prepare for the race
- Pick an obstacle in google maps and describe what is difficult about it
Tell the others who has an advantage or is disadvantaged
(or in Gerrit's case: Always pick Anna.)

Optional:
- cheat a bit
- get caught
- win nevertheless.
- leave like a Pro.

Let me summarize what this video is saying in a paragraph:

Last administration Republicans took the low road - breaking constitutional law to not vote in a Supreme Court Justice, etc. Democrats took the high road: shaming them for not following rules, and doing nothing. The alt-right does the same thing by shaming liberals and the "tolerant left" when they don't follow the rules (blocking "free speech" or punching nazis), when they are more than willing to ignore such rules consistently. Do not let people define the "high road" as "following the rules". The only way the left doesn't get continually played by the right is to define the high road as: "there is a moral imperative to disobey rules when following them does not lead to justice". This is how rules got changed and why things eventually got signed into laws (abolition of slavery, voting rights, what little LGBT+ rights we have, etc.).

So, to you, I say: Vote. VOTE!

(But the outcome is just the outcome. It does not say anything about what is right or wrong to fight about. Whatever the results of tomorrow be.)

I'm going to be playing this in the next month for sure! Can't wait...
+Lauren McManamon and I bring you the public beta of our duet tabletop RPG Strange Birds, with layout by the very talented +Jay Iles! In Strange Birds you pick a beautiful, fantastical, dorky, bird species to play and explore their eccentricities and foibles with a partner. Duet play has been getting more love in The Gauntlet lately, and I'm very excited to see the community playtest this game! Get it now! http://ow.ly/zXTc30msY1D

This Kickstarter is so much my thing that I created a second account so I can get two books. I'm not joking.
Final Hours - Codex Volume 1 Kickstarter

We are in the final hours of the Codex Volume 1 Kickstarter campaign. If you love Dungeon World, this book is a must have. And I'm not exaggerating here. In addition to all the amazing Dungeon World content in the first 13 issues of the Codex zine (which is what's inside the Volume 1 book), we have hit a stretch goal that let's us include the Discern Realities Annual, a 39-page zine chock full of terrific Dungeon World content that was created in conjunction with the popular Discern Realities podcast.

In terms of Dungeon World stuff, the book will have over 170 total magic items, custom moves, and monsters; 8 compendium classes; and 7 adventure starters.

And, of course, there is a ton of system-agnostic fantasy stuff in the book, plus original games and other material.

The book is going to be really special, but there isn't much time left to back it. Do not hesitate: check out the link below!

Write-up of a session of Fall of Magic I ran for six kiddies at Strategicon Games on Demand: Kids Edition, back at Gateway 2018 (Sept 2). Definitely a game I'd like to run for kids again (with tweaks mentioned in post).

An article I wrote for the Gauntlet RPG about using the Microscope Palette in world-building for various one-shot games, and also how it led me to discover a procedure for creating an ad hoc Dungeon World starter for engaging and deep single session games.

Let me know if you find it useful!
