Something awesome:
 
This post is shareable!

I’m super excited about this rad project I’m Kickstarting with my friend Elissa. It’s a collection of games, art, and fiction, in a cyber-witchy style. Our goal is to use this to focus on various social issues. We’ve got some amazing diverse collaborators and content. Our first issue’s themes are class and accessibility, and features work from:

- me!
+Elissa Leach
+Barbara Ng
- Leslie Anderson
- Tara Helfer

Gaze into our black mirrors, glitch a few creds our way.

Get in on +Meguey Baker's beautiful seasonal games! Commentary on the lives of animals throughout the year by naturalist Jodi Levine is the first stretch goal, and my exploration of plants in our area at each of the quarters and cross quarters is up next.

Meguey's doing something special and enduring here. Hope you talk a walk through the wheel of the year with her, too.

It's the clever names that get my goat, I never have a clue what they mean without looking it up.

Mythic Mortals and Headspace Kickstarter Stretch Goals
Right this moment, my contributions happen to be the current stretch goal at two great Kickstarters! 

Mythic Mortals by +David Schirduan places you in the game--suddenly finding yourself with powers awakening, granted by the ancient gods. David Schirduan (of the 200 Word RPG Challenge http://schirduans.com/david/2015/04/200-word-rpg-challenge.html)
 wrote his game with his own play community in mind--shifting and changing, so the game is written with it in mind that you should be able to sit down and play, and immediately get into the action. There are only 48 hours left on David's Kickstarter as I write this.  But still plenty of time to reach my goal, as well as the next couple, an adventure by the  talented Joe Banner and a new class by James Wallis himself. 
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/464972563/mythic-mortals

Headspace by +Mark Richardson,  is just past half-way through its campaign. Headspace is a cyberpunk game, powered by the Apocalypse, with a clever conceit. You play a team of hackers and in-person infiltrators who are sent  on a mission to take down an evil scheme by one of the many powerful corporations that struggle to control this brave new world. And in order to do so, the operatives mind-link, hence the name.  I had the pleasure of playtesting Headspace last year, and am excited to see how Mark has polished the final version, with mechanics that mirror the interlocking nature of the characters skills and experiences.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1991378332/headspace-rpg

Good luck, David and Mark! Can't wait to play both these games in their final forms!!!

#Feminism, a Nano-Game Collection launches today! Spearheaded by +Misha B, +Lizzie Stark, +Anna Westerling, +Shuo Meng and Fëa Livia.

My game "Ma, Can I Help You with That?" about the gendered nature of caregiving will be in the compilation. It is a companion piece to +Evan Torner's "Something to Drink with That, Sir?", about service while flying a mile high and emotional labor.

Here's a few more issues the games will cover:
-selfies
-the orgasm gap
-lesbian witchcraft spin the bottle
-grey zone sexual encounters
-street harassment
-manic pixie dream girl commandos

They'll take the games on the road in 2016, going to Fastaval, DexCon, Big Bad Con, Origins and more!

Living Games
Have you heard about Living Games? Support it or buy your ticket through the Kickstarter right now. It's a gaming conference in Austin, Texas, May 2016 that builds off of the kick-ass work +Shoshana Kessock did to bring together leading minds, designers and players of live games in North America and beyond. To bring thought and expertise together, to help us all learn from one another and make more vibrant, inclusive and healthy games & communities.

Living Games is focused on larp in all its modalities, but is open to folks who love rpgs of all stripes, and will include discussion and games where larp & tabletop overlap. There is so  much to learn from one another. We've invited +Jason Morningstar, one of our keynote speakers to talk on that very thing. 

I'm super excited about this event. I am going, bought my ticket as soon as I could, and am helping with programming and outreach. There is a powerhouse crew lead by +Sarah Lynne Bowman from many communities working on this. It's a fantastic chance to bring together an amazing number of traditions. From established Mind's Eye Theatre groups, to freeform larp like Golden Cobra, to boffer communities like Austin's own Amtgard. This is going to be spectacular. 

Over the next couple weeks, as the Kickstarter campaign hits the home stretch, I'll post about Living Games and the speakers, programming, and what I hope to see come out of it.
