A Gateway opens

Flotsam is now heading towards our first scenario stretch goal, which is Gateway by +Emily Care Boss. "Gateway is the jumping off point for a newly charted binary system. Will you find your fortune or make a home in this unique crossroads among the stars?" Reading that, I get an optimistic Babylon 5 vibe, but of course this is Flotsam so it will be a different take on it.

I'm so delighted to have Emily involved with this project!

While I'm here, let me explain what the scenarios are. The basic deal with these is, each will contain a set of Primary characters, already created and with charged relationships that are at a turning point; and Situations, rich with setting detail and potential external challenges for the characters to engage with. They enable you to skip an hour or so of setting things up and jump straight into the action, which enables the game to be easily played as a one-shot, or sets you up for a campaign that will start with a bang.

Hi Friends! Timeless on NBC Season 2 premiers on Sunday March 11 at 10pmEST/9pm CST. If you can watch it on cable, Hulu Live, Youtube TV, that will help it have a chance at getting a Season 3!!!! If you watch it the night it airs or within 3 days on these streaming services--Nielsen ratings will include you! If you watch it on the NBC app, they pay attention, too.

Please give it a try! It's one of my favorite shows, and it's been a ray of light in many ways in this difficult year we've had. If you want to do a watch party or tweet along, let me know!!!

If you are already watching & loving it, please do try to watch during those first 3 days. Mission critical!!

It will be no real surprise to those of you who interact with me on Twitter to hear that I'm part of the Timeless fandom. It's a light sci-fi, Time Travel show that aired last year, was cancelled, then SAVED from cancellation in response to fan outcry. It's progressive, educational, romantic, thought-provoking and really well done. The fandom is welcoming and enthusiastic. Go check it out on FB and Twitter! I've done my turn at writing fluffy fanfic, and there are many other skilled writers on Archive of Our Own and Fanfiction.net writing about the show.

Timeless stars Abigail Spencer from Suits and Rectify, Malcolm Barrett from Better Off Ted and Preacher and Matt Lanter from Clone Wars (Anakin's' voice!) and Pitch Perfect 3. These roles are wonderfully well-crafted shared leads. The cast, writers and crew are diverse, and it shows. They tackle issues of real world inequities through time that many time travel shows shy away from. It's family friendly and has the potential to be a great long-running show if it gets the chance.

We are so glad to have given it another shot at life--the only thing now that will bring it back for a third, and more seasons, is getting live ratings for these next 10 episodes. The letter below is a call to action from the creator Eric Kripke, maker of Supernatural. Everything hinges on the viewing ratings in the next few weeks.

Thank you & glad to have you all on the Lifeboat!!! ❤️😃😁
