Is it custom to post our submissions here before Sunday? (and Sunday is the deadline, right? June 21, EST)

I'm on my 3rd draft, and I'm reaching the end of how much I can do without playtesting.

If you want to put some great linux programs in your Windows OS. Easy to use.
KDE Installer for Windows. You can use this installer to download and install the various binary packages that you need to run KDE applications on MS Windows. KDE is free and open source so you can build all the applications "from scratch" from their source code; but as a convenience for others, ...

When the survey goes out to confirm my pledge, please put in reminders of some of the details, like page count for the city book and so forth-- and details for the other add-ons. Just to help me plan my budget.

Well, I've put in my first ever submission to Game Chef last night. Here it is. Is it clear what is the different audience for what is being presented? I used some of the ingredients quite subtly. Also, that's me on the cover. I think I'll put myself on the cover of all my works, no matter what it is...

So, I hammered out a page of something. It seems like more a thing that would make a 10 minute pregame warmup for a LARP or tabletop. What makes a game, a game?

It's called: Dragonfly Yoga School

Instead of soft, I call it creative narrative negotiations. It it did make more sense to retcon the Sparrow's move choice from Transcend Love to Dark Bargain. A) her relationship with the Pigeon wasn’t developed much and it was starting to look like the Pigeon was really dealing with the stress of war through sleeping around, and B) her choice of move was more narratively relevant at that moment. Actually, if that crash happened earlier in the evening we probably would have played that moment up longer with more drama.

I'm looking forward to the next session where I expect more of those "tell a story" marks to make an appearance.
 
We had session 2 of Night Witches tonight and it was a blast! Only got through 3 of the missions but so much drama! The rolls went unnaturally badly all night so every NPC we sent into the air ended up dead, the ladies were interrogated by NKVD on several occasions, planes were damaged, everyone ended up in hospital, some had to return from enemy territory and they got busted trying to participate in an illicit party - ratted out by one of the zealot PCs. They did actually blow up most of what they were supposed to and they did rack up mission points during the days, but there's only so much you can do when the dice come up snake eyes.

We are switching GMs next time, which is bittersweet for me because I'm just starting to get into the groove, but I'm going to have so much fun playing a fresh character next week.

Just played today. I ran the Aware (14 yo white teen, who ran the neighborhood treehouse with his problem solving/meddling school chums. The Specter introduced me to the supernatural (16 yo neighbor, older sister of my friend in the club, died 6 months ago) The wolf, whom I knew secrets of, had been the one to kill the Specter, and was all my fault. Finally, the Hunter was involved, believing to be be protecting me, when I was protecting him.

all around. made a cool television show pilot. The Spector retired at the climax of the session to save her sister's life (who was using black magic to uncover the truth of the Spector's death and seek revenge)

I found it wasn't easy for the Aware to gain corruption.  The playbook might need an extra avenue for that.

Shawn, that's so awesome. Kevin is such a great MC to play under, I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. 

Your concern regarding corruption is accurate, and intentional. The Aware is the most prone to sticking to their morals and as such have trouble getting over that initial corruption hump. Once they do however, they are as susceptible as the rest of the monsters. :)

I played a long-term campaign with an Aware and believe me, he got loads of corruption as things progressed.
