Sometimes there's a PbtA game that I get personally invested in. Sagas of the Icelanders felt very personal as I talked with +Gregor Vuga a lot in the early stages about the gender roles and how to approach them. I remember the first conversation I had with +Marshall Miller  about his idea that became The Warren, and that first playtest with my kids. What +Mark Plemmons  is doing with MASHED is so damn cool. When he first posted about it over a year ago on the PbtA community (https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/107071334810365821574) I was immediately struck by his approach.  It reminds me of both +Nathan Paoletta's fantastic game carry: a game about war and the excellent work of +Mo Jave & co. in War Birds. If I had nothing else to do this weekend, this is what I'd be doing.
 
The open playtest of the MASHED RPG is now available for free on +DriveThruRPG!

+Mark Plemmons​ I grew up on M*A*S*H and think their mix of drama and comedy has rarely been matched since, so I am very much looking forward to checking this out!

And h/t to +Gennifer Bone , for posting a thing I didn't realize I needed so much right now.
 
Life would be much more interesting if the creatures created in Photoshop were real.

ETA: All set, thanks!



Hey, if you see this and you are at PAXEast, can you get down to the Indie Bazaar or Burning Wheel booth and let them know I am outside with stock, and need someone from the booth to come help me get into the show?

Just skimmed through the playtest doc. I am so immensely pleased with everything I see. I want so much to play this game. Key factors I hadn't noted before: the art is amazing and the glossary of terms is great and the bibliography is deep.

The photos honor the real people from which you and your players draw inspiration. I'd stick with them.

This is such an awesome book. I usually MC all my games of AW, but I need to play this. Death Satellites and wails of the dead? Sign me the hell up.

Way to make Bards cool!

I'm excited about this! Fight with your friends. Ally with your rivals. Fall in love with your enemies. Also, it's way fun!

Complete back cover text

The year is SC 0245.

Humanity has spread through the Milky way, using interstellar transit gate technology to colonize the galaxy. Mobile frames are the hard-working, hard-fighting combat- and labor mecha they've brought with them.

You are romantic ace mobile frame pilots, caught up in an undeclared war for the future of the Bantral system.

Fight with your friends. Ally with your rivals. Fall in love with your enemies.

MOBILE FRAME ZERO: FIREBRANDS is a casual roleplaying game by D. Vincent Baker, set in Joshua A.C. Newman's MOBILE FRAME ZERO universe. You don’t need to be familiar with MOBILE FRAME ZERO: RAPID ATTACK or MOBILE FRAME ZERO: INTERCEPT ORBIT to play.

To play, you’ll need 3–5 players, a copy of this playbook for each, and a handful of coins.
 
Available this weekend, only at PAX East! Look for it at the Indie Bazaar.

This is based on one of the oldest board games and looks pretty cool.
Help Owl Tree Games improve and re-issue this beautiful strategy game created in 1979 by artist and craftsman Randy Miller.

I'm fairly confident I'm the only Meguey Baker. Having an odd spelling of an unusual Spanish flower name makes me pretty distinctive. Also, I'm basically friendly, so even if you were not looking for me, chances are I won't mind you asking to make sure.
