This has several awesome people I know involved, you should check it out!
 
For those who might have missed it yesterday, we just released a setting written by +Brian Engard that explores the world of superheroes in renaissance Italy. It's a product that is designed to focus on different aspects of the setting, serving both Spark and Fate Core for very different experiences.

Please help spread the word about the pay-what-you-want product, and take a look if it sounds interesting.

Help out if you're in one of the groups she references here. I'm also closing comments so you'll remember to click through.
 
PLEASE RESHARE

I'm looking to interview women who are interested in tabletop gaming or LARPing, but have either (1) never played a game or (2) played games in the past, but are no longer actively gaming.

Trans women, WoC, disabled women,  poor women, and other traditionally marginalized women are specifically encouraged to reach out.  I would also like to encourage women who are not from North America to speak out as well.

Please contact me directly on G+, Twitter, or via email at shemhazai.grigori@gmail.com.

Something I was proud to be able to say in an editorial comment I made while looking over a friend's RPG manuscript.

While most English teachers would continue to use the masculine for undefined gender, the roleplaying industry especially has decided to buck this trend and be more progressive with their use of pronouns in gaming texts.

Friends with layout / editing experience:

I'm about to start on a technical document at the dayjob, and I want to try out a new way of doing things. I need help deciding what that process should look like, though. There's a couple of constraints:

* InDesign is not an option (unless it's apparent that it's the only/best option).
* Text needs to use some form of markdown for the raw text
* I want to be able to dump that markdown into something and have it spit out something that looks decent (decent defined here as rudimentary layout)
* I don't have a lot of time (read: no more than a couple of days) to devote to learning something new.
* I need something that can handle simple graphics, too.
* There are two outputs to this process: one requires copypasta into a custom program (feel free to ask, but my knowledge of this arcane program is limited), the other is what I want to achieve with this new process.
* I can't outsource this.

The existing process would use a Word template and custom styles, and whoever needed to do the copypasta would just have to deal. I know there has to be a better way (I hope)...

Feel free to share this post. I need to cast a wide net here.

Dokuwiki can export to PDF and you build your book from the topics. Pretty sweet feature.

It's what I use to create Baroque content. Just drop it on a web server and you're done. Being a wiki is also a bonus for technical docs.

So here's a microgame I came up with last night after thinking more about my idea from the night before.

It's a little game about managing your physical, mental, and emotional energy.

I'd love feedback on whether you think it'd be fun to play, things I missed (I'm sure there are some), etc.

Thanks for sharing! I've been working on a similar concept specifically related to empathy and chronic pain. Bookmarked!

I've been working with awesome people like +Jessica Hammer, +Mark Diaz Truman, +Avery Mcdaldno on a new project called Different Play. Our goal is supporting and increasing diversity in analog games.

Our first effort, which I'm so excited for, is starting a Patreon: we're going to find new, diverse designers with cool ideas, and help them develop those into finished games. We've got all-star talent to help out with mentoring, playtesting, editing, and art, including +Lillian Cohen-Moore, +Lizzie Stark, +Ryan Macklin, and others.

We're raising the money because diversity can't be founded on charity. The designers we're speaking to, like +Wendy Gorman (whose supercool game "Letters from Shama" will be one of our first projects) are awesome, and to help connect them to the broader community as equals, that means paying everybody involved like the professionals they are.

So:
* Support the Patreon here: http://www.patreon.com/different_play
* Are you somebody with an idea for a game?  Whether you're published, unpublished, or somewhere in between, get in touch with us at submissions@differentplay.com. We're looking for more designers for the Patreon from traditionally underepresented communities. You can be interested in making story games, freeform, larp, or dungeon crawls, we'll find experts to help make your game happen.

Please reshare this! Please consider helping us out! And in 2015, we're going to have a lot more to announce, which you can see a peek at http://www.differentplay.com

feedback welcome, and please spread the message far and wide
Patreon is empowering a new generation of creators. Support and engage with artists and creators as they live out their passions!

Posting this here so I can find it later, in case I can sort through the thoughts and emotions it provokes.


h/t to several (who I won't mention just in case)
We met at 18. We wed at 24. At 27, I checked my wife into a psych ward—for the first time. How mental illness reshapes a marriage.

Randomizing the starting levels is a way of mechanizing how I think this actually works. You have a conception of how many spoons you have, and it varies from day to day based on multiple factors. but you're not 100% certain what the levels actually are.

A little thing I've been working on, an FAE hack based on The Quick and the Dead.

Spotted Horse and Ace Handlin will be the next two I write, assuming I decide to add more sample characters.

I attempted to buy an engine from this company, and the experience was an exercise in frustration. Over the course of a week, their customer service over the phone was terrible. They did not have answers to basic questions (how many miles are on the engine?), and they seemed incapable of returning phone calls. They also quoted different prices depending on whether I or my mechanic was talking to them. I know they're probably a smaller junkyard, but I expect a little more than this when it comes to customer service. If you decide to do business with them, beware.
