Aggressive Inclusivity

So I'm developing an all-new edition/version/core rules set, Cortex Prime, and while the spine and muscles of it are pretty much a solo effort I'm looking ahead to a Kickstarter that should include works by other people. Other designers.

This is that weird thing where I'm like, I would really like to hire people who do not look like me to write, design, and create settings and rules plug-ins for the game, and pay them well for it, but they also need to know the game.

So if you are or you know women, PoC, LGBTQ/NB folk, designers and writers who have loved or still love Marvel Heroic, Leverage, Smallville, or Firefly, and you think they or you can handle my laid-back Kiwi management style and produce rock-solid shit-hot awesome work for me on a not-terrible schedule, let me know.

Drop me an email at seth AT magic-vacuum DOT com with your enthusiastic vision. I want to help you help me make it happen.

Today, we had to say goodbye to Velvet, our Final Girl from our old rat pack. We had just brought in two new girls before Christmas too, and Velvet was beside herself with joy over them. She'd outlived all her old friends, and had lived through the grief, and here now were new friends. Velvet was always strange, even by rat standards, and these new younglings made her act as if she was a baby again, just like them.

Then Monday night when we took them all out together for playtime, she couldn't balance and was very lethargic. Buildup around nose and eyes. The littles were too much for her in that state. We got really worried when she didn't eat much of her dinner. And this morning, she was so much worse from the infection in her airways - the third such she'd had - that we had to make the call.

She has crossed the Rainbow Bridge like her friends before her, and we shall never forget the little weirdo.

Paleontology is often hard to get funding for, and we need more work in the southern hemisphere. This project aims to raise less that $5000 to work on a really promising area in Argentina. If you've got a little cash, consider throwing it their way.
<p>The extinction of non-avian dinosaurs 66 million years ago paved the way for the "Age of Mammals", but the vast majority of fossils from this period come from northern continents. In this project, we will intensively explore new fossil sites in Northwest Argentina, where we have recently...

The only things I could say to suit this are unprintable invective and heartbroken sobbing.
 
Well, shit. Requiescat in Pace.

So tell me. Do you, as I, think we need a game where all weapons are animated in this style? With suitable soundscape, of course.

Took the "liberty" to update The New Colossus to a more Trump-friendly version, with apologies to Emma Lazarus :

"Get away, you tired, you poor,
You huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
Keep this wretched refuse on your own teeming shore.
Remain homeless, tempest-tost far from me,
I shit here, on my golden throne!"

Read this. Take it to heart. Tolerance is not a moral imperative, it's a peace treaty, and a peace treaty is not a suicide pact.
 
Tolerance is not a moral precept: It is a peace treaty.

We are brought up to believe that tolerating people is a basic moral good. But this simple approach fails, and can easily be used against us by people who say "Why won't you tolerate my intolerance?" This can happen in everything from our personal lives to the political arena. But it comes from a misunderstanding of what tolerance is.

The way to understand tolerance isn't as a moral absolute: it's as a peace treaty. The difference is that a peace treaty only applies when both sides abide by it.

This is an essay I've had brewing for some time.
The title of this essay should disturb you. We have been brought up to believe that tolerating other people is one of the things you do if…

So, at what point do we replace the Nobel Prize in Physics with something that isn't exclusively given to men?
