The Itras By Menagerie is out! I couldn't be prouder to have contributed to this quirky, fascinating anthology of weird ideas.

Apocalypse World and enough hacks to play for decades, including one of mine, with 10% going to the Southern Poverty Law Center. if you have ever been curious about this way of tabletop roleplaying, or even just want one of these games, this is a really great opportunity.

Oh my goodness, Fiasco is slipping down the charts at RPG Geek in the face of a relentless onslaught of games people like better!

If, like me, your reaction to this sad news is "this cannot stand" and you have not rated Fiasco, please consider Not Letting This Stand.

Did we meet or play a a game at Gen Con? Let's be friends!

Here's a nice, low-key actual play recording.

The 2017 Golden Cobra game design challenge is live!

http://www.goldencobra.org/

I am really happy with the award categories:

Best game that gives us hope
Best game that non-gamers can understand, play, and enjoy
Best game that incorporates meaningful, non-romantic relationships
Best succinct game (no more than 2 pages or 2000 words)

I'm reading Svetlana Alexievich's astonishing oral history of Soviet women who fought in the Great Patriotic War and it is making me reconsider so many things about Night Witches. Here's a sort of coda move for you:

The first time someone denies your lived experience after the war, roll minus medals.

On a 10+ you smile and nod your head and everything is fine.

On a 7-9 everything is fine, but choose one:
You minimize your accomplishments.
You play up the accomplishments of a male relative.
You change the subject to something other than the War.

On a miss you let them have it with the full force of a natural-born Soviet airwoman. Choose one and the GM chooses one:
You'll never work in aviation again.
You'll never have a position of authority again.
Your friends and family freeze you out.
Your neighbors view you with pity or suspicion or both.

Whatever the outcome, that's how it is going to be for the next thirty years.

Back up your stuff

We're in the last 24 hour stretch for Big Bad Con. After each campaign there are invariably folks who find out about the awesome rewards just after it closes and wish they knew about it sooner. So as a public service I present six reasons to click that button now.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1157274964/big-bad-con-2017

Three reasons you'll feel awesome for backing the con:

* Our teen track and outreach program, bringing great games to kids 13 and up!
* Our special guests +Laura Simpson, +Dev Purkayastha, +Alex Roberts, +Kathryn Hymes, +Hakan Seyalioglu, +Tora Shae Pruden, +Misha B, +J Li, +Tracy Barnett, +Jason Morningstar, +Nadja Otikor, and +Jared Sorensen, who will all be there running great games... maybe with you.
* Our scholarship program that helps financially challenged women, people of color, disabled, and lgbtqia+ individuals attend the con.

Three reasons you'll kick yourself later if you don't back during the Kickstarter. Get it? Kick yourself... okay, I'm terrible. But still, you'll be sad if you miss out on these:

* Little Red's baskets. Seriously +Brian Vo, Sarah Troedson, Jeremy Kostiew, and +Govneh Sullivan will be making the most amazing treats... that can be delivered right to your game! In the words of Mary Berry, they are scrummy!
* Paw Prints. A badge, a basket, and a whole lot of signed book love. +luke crane, +Eric Vogel, +John Harper, and +Pamela Alexander are all lending their signatures (and games!) to make this awesome package possible.
* Baba Yaga's gift boxes. Hand assembled by +Divine Cheshire, these boxes will have original art, cool crafts, and other gems (perhaps actual gems) included. Last year's recipients loved their packages. This year, Ash has gone above and beyond to make sure we get more custom crafted goodies. Contributors include +Sophie Lagace, +Jason Morningstar, +Divine Cheshire, Atomic Pixies, Jenny Haines, +Jackson Tegu, Robert Bowen, Jen Massie, Jason Van Glass, and Jen Rowan!

Big Bad is full of awesome people who love to play games. Come join us!
