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.

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

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.

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

Ginger Goat is actively seeking one or two young or new game designers to help with a couple story game projects.

Requirements:
You like story games and/or freeform
You are unpublished or have published less than three games.
You are willing to be paid.

Projects:
Both projects involve designing descriptions for PC background and relationships. These are sort of like oracles or relationship maps.
Both projects will be paid and you will receive credit for your work.
One is a one-shot sword and sorcery game.
The other involves Dangers Untold.

If you are interested, reach out here or send me a private message.
I hope it goes without saying that Ginger Goat encourages people from a diversity of backgrounds to apply.

There will be a photo for #selfieday I suppose, but it will have to wait until after work, +Brianna Sheldon.

Real Talk

It is okay for white males to celebrate and champion the cause of non-white, non-male folks, especially in professional work that is traditionally dominated by white males.

* It is not patting oneself on the back for being a great white male.
* It is not White Knight behavior.
* It is not about the white male even if the white male is talking about it.
* Stop trying to minimize the success and progress of non-white, non-male professionals by turning the conversation away from them and toward the white male who is calling attention to them.

tl;dr If you want to see change, don't be offended when a privileged group takes steps to raise awareness of a non-privileged group. Especially if you are a member of that same privileged group.

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.

https://www.dokuwiki.org/dokuwiki

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!

Help if you're able.
 
A while ago, I shared with you all that I was interested in going to a Boot Camp to learn to code. 

That opportunity has arisen, with my acceptance into the Winter cohort at Hackbright Academy, in San Francisco. Hackbright is an awesome camp for me to go to both because it's a Python camp (meaning I'm not starting from complete zero), and it's an all women camp.

That's the good news.

The bad news is that to hold my seat while I get an aid determination, the deposit is $3000, which is money I don't have. I'm examining all of my options to make the deposit (and go to camp) because this is my dream and this is also my opportunity to do some heavy lifting for the girls and women behind me. 

A few friends have suggested that if I had a crowdfunding page up for it, they'd consider it. I've put this page together. Since I know a number of people who aren't interested in Go Fund Me (I wouldn't be using them if my turnaround weren't so fast, myself) and I'll probably get asked, I do also have a paypal link if you want to help out with this: aberrantvirtue@gmail.com.

I know this might seem like a big ask after the summer I've had, so please know that if you don't want to contribute, or don't have the money to contribute, I still love and value you exactly the same. I'm only putting this up so that there's a convenient way for those who want to help.

Thank you all for your encouragement, love, and support in getting me to the place where this is what I have to ask for. I have come so far in this time, and I look forward to going even farther.

Love.

A while ago, I applied to Hackbright Academy, a 12 week boot camp for women to learn a Python based stack (all the stuff that you need to know to be a web developer, for the non-techies out there) and to get employable as a junior web dev. I applied with the help and encouragement of a number of...

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.
