I'm doing art again, and I want to facilitate justice for women through the female representation in my art. So I want to get some photographic references that women would like me to draw from (literally and figuratively). Anyone want to throw pics from the Internet at me? I don't care if they have nudity or what license they are under, these will be for practice only. Just no porn please.

Sci-fi short: Rise
Fantastic visuals in this near future dystopia where sentient robots are being rounded up and terminated.
Good acting too in this 5min piece, apparently a proof-of-concept for a full-length movie.

There are bad takes on sex and gender in games, there are good takes on sex and gender in games, and then there's Paranoia.

Well look at this. Our own +Todd Nicholas went and designed himself a game with our buddy Tom (who you may remember as Frost from the Black Diamond AP) and the assistance of cast members +Megan Pedersen and +Jenn Martin. Would you like said game to be a thing? You can back it to help make it so!

Codex - Yellow

The newest issue of our zine, Codex, is now in the Patreon feed!

Codex - Yellow is all about Carcosa, a setting introduced in an 1886 short story by Ambrose Bierce, but since adopted and reinterpreted by numerous science fiction and fantasy writers, game designers, and TV and film producers. Codex - Yellow is our little slice of the Carcosa mythology, principally inspired by some of the roleplaying game interpretations of the setting that have come before.

Here is an overview of Codex - Yellow…

The cover (pictured below) features an illustration by +Dirk Detweiler Leichty.

The Society for Vegan Sorcerers is a micro game by +Wendy Gorman about a group of sorcerers trying to find vegan-friendly alternatives to human sacrifice! The piece is hilarious (and deliciously subversive), and has a really fun illustration by +Sean Poppe.

The City of Carcosa is a Dungeon World starter by +Andrew Shields. It presents a dreamy, arts-focused take on Carcosa, where the citizens are engaged in an endless cycle of revelry, self-discovery and existential dread. It’s a strange, beautiful diversion from the typical Dungeon World adventure, and features a number of dark, gorgeous illustrations by +Vandel J. Arden.

The Search for the Yellow City is a Cheat Your Own Adventure scenario by +Fred Bednarski. It presents a basic set-up for the story, the text of the first scene you can simply read aloud at the table to kick things off, and a rules hack for planar shifts. This piece features a particularly brilliant bit of layout by +Oli Jeffery and an original illustration by +Nery Mejicano.

The Yellow Planet is a collection of Dungeon World elements inspired by science fantasy literature and the Lamentations of the Flame Princess book, Carcosa. It presents Carcosa as a planet of impossible ecologies, forgotten histories, and Lovecraftian monstrosities. It was written by myself, +Daniel Fowler, +Fraser Simons, and Tony Hahn. Illustrations are by +Ray Otus.

This month’s miscellany is one of the most diverse and interesting we’ve ever done. It’s called Three Dozen Forbidden Texts, and was inspired by the apocryphal play The King in Yellow, featured in stories about Carcosa by Robert W. Chambers.

Finally, this issue has an updated list of Codex Keepers (Patrons who pledge at the $4 or higher level). If you’d like to see your name added to that list in the future, as well as get a copy of Codex - Yellow, check out our Patreon and make a $4 pledge!

Wrapped up Season 1 of Monster Hearts 2: Mercy Falls High with +Jason Cordova, +Yoshi Creelman, +Fraser Simons and +Phillip Wessels this morning.

I enjoyed this game so much. Jason is a fantastic MC and all of the players were outstanding. I loved how all of the stories weaved together and the larger mythology surrounding Mercy Falls, WA.

I've been wanting to play MH for a few years now and had very high expectations which were not disappointed. I can't wait to have another chance to play.
