Hello everyone!

I mentioned this on the slack, but I wanted to let folks know that I have just launched a kickstarter campaign for my next game, title After the War. It's a memetic horror science-fiction roleplaying game, set 10 years after the end of a galactic war. It's a game about communities of strangers who try to overcome their trauma to build new homes together.

I ran the first session of a 3-part series on gauntlet hangouts with +Lauren McManamon +David Rothfeder +Ryan McNeil +Larry S and +Christo Meid last monday where we built characters and a settlement, if you want to take a look. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRiSt00dqdA

If this sounds like your jam or you want more information, feel free to check out the kickstarter and the free quickstart there.

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to let people know that I have launched a kickstarter campaign for my latest indie tabletop RPG. After the War is a science-fiction roleplaying game of memetic horror. Ten years have passed since the galactic war against the alien, mind-twisting Song and it's Chorister fleet. The millions of survivors try to build new homes on the distant, frontier world of Povlo. Alas, the agents of that ancient foe and the corrupting weapons we unleashed against it still lurk and threaten our settlements.

This is an evolution of the rules system from Spark and from Sig, where I continue to try to streamline the mechanics and tell interesting stories. This earns the title of memetic horror because the antagonists in the setting have the ability to, in certain cases, alter character's Beliefs without those characters even being aware of it. This explores some fertile new ground within the Spark system and I suspect that many of you might be interested in the campaign.

Cheers and happy gaming!

If this sounds like you cup of tea, I would love it if you would join us and help spread the word.

I just had a brilliant interview about "After the War" on The Lounge, part of the Misdirected Mark Productions podcast network. +Jesse Donavan Edmond is an excellent interviewer and we were able to get into the weeds of my game design philosophy.

If you have an hour to spare during your commute, I recommend you check out this episode.

Back in July, the fine folks over at the GM Party podcast had myself, +alasdair stuart and +Josh T Jordan over to discuss music in games. It was a delightful episode where we were able to talk about different ways that songs can fit into game, both as components of play and elements of the setting.

Alasdair and discuss our work on #AfterTheWar at length during the cast, and you may find it an interesting listen.

Running a kickstarter is an exciting process. I would love to get a few more eyeballs on my little campaign, if folks were interested in science fiction horror.

After the War is a game by +Jason Pitre that's about what happens after a space war in the solar system. It's part Expanse part post apocalyptic community rejuvenation. Very neat concept. I'm a belter and so is my character! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/Jagash/after-the-war
