Once again, +Ryan Macklin hits you with the wisdom stick. (Also, I'm in design limbo right now, so his words speak to my experience.)
 
I try to answer That Question about getting started in games. As a bonus, I include a downer at the end!
I met an aspiring game designer a few days ago, and he asked me one of the toughest and most common questions that you can ask someone about getting started in a creative endeavor. This time, it to...

Oh, I totally got that part, sure. Designing (outside of editing, that is) is still terrifying as fuck to me. Still trying to figure out if I'm in your category one ("want to design a thing") or category two ("want to have designed a thing").

Sharing the love because editors need to stick together!
 
I have some freelance editing time opening up soon. If you are looking to a professional edit on a short story or novel, or just want a professional eye look at your work, here are my rates:

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.

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.

Game designers, we call this an opportunity.
 
Want help promoting your game?

We ran over 300 games for nearly 1,500 players at Gen Con Games On Demand last year.

To join our list of games for Gen Con 2015, answer these questions:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1KNV-J444iUj1mzQzdHfvdPP93vsFyzNTxgpOcm-fyuA/viewform?usp=send_form

Games must be:
- an RPG or FreeForm game (no board or electronic games)
- able to run in 2 or 4 hours
- playable with 4 or more players
- friendly to new players

Games can be playtests and don't have to be published or final. But their rules text must be complete and clear, and all character sheets, worksheets, and/or playbooks need to be usable.

The deadline is Monday, July 6th, 2015.

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.

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.

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.
