+Epidiah Ravachol's third issue of Worlds Without Master is out. He's put together a magazine that hearkens back to the pulp era, when some of the top writers of the day brought us tales of adventure and razor-sharp writing; combined with the likes of hobby gaming magazines like Dragon and Strategy and Tactics with innovative games and supporting materials along with comics, essays and all the other good stuff that comes with sharing a genre you love, with others. 

Swords Without Master, Ep's game that inspired the magazine, is in issue 3. It's kind of stunning the blood, sweat, tears and love that have gone into this whole project. And the amazing talent of artists like +Ed Heil, +Rachel Kahn+Storn Cook, +bryant johnson,  and many others.  All three issues are bundled at DriveThruRPG, too (http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product/127968/Worlds-Without-Master-Issues-13-BUNDLE). 

Recently, +luke crane said this is a golden age of gaming. Seriously.

For those who love stories and minotaurs (and who doesn't?), +Paul Czege has a new game being Kickstarted.
 
I'm proud to announce that the definitive, immersive minotaur roleplaying game is now crowdfunding on Kickstarter.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/252728880/the-clay-that-woke-an-rpg-about-minotaurs
It could use a little buzz if you're active in online communities who care about RPGs.

Thank you.

+Avery Mcdaldno shares great insights into building a diverse community, and provides a framework for supporting the voices of folks often shut out of the conversation in games, and elsewhere.

Avery, thank you for making this space and for articulating the intent behind it. 
My mom wrote me a couple days ago, saying “I am [hosting] a workshop on collaboration... and would love to use some examples from your work. Would you share some with me?” I started to write my response, and realized that it was quite a bit bigger than would fit comfortably in a Facebook chat window. It had become an article. And since it ...

Just 6 days left for the Modest Medusa Kickstarter! We have lots of stretch goals to meet so we could still use your help! Right now we're only about $350 away from our next goal, an extra 3 page comic that'll be included in the book! Please check out the Kickstarter page: http://kck.st/1e8hLR1

Have you heard about Dangers Untold? A larp supplement for +Josh T Jordan 's game Heroine? Follow a young heroine on a journey through a fantastic land--this time live action!  The talented +Shoshana Kessock is making this a reality, and +J. Walton and I are adding to the project to sweeten the pot. 
 
Go and fund Dangers Untold, the LARP game based on +Josh T Jordan’s Heroine, and you’ll also get Never II Return, a new LARP written by +J. Walton and +Emily Care Boss! ;-)
