Stop making Batman films and just convince a stoned Elon Musk to dress up and fight crime with a GoPro instead challenge

Every once in a while something shows up that shows that there are still exciting new ways to tell stories.

This is one of them.

Today's GM pro-tip: make some of your NPCs likeable.

ICYMI, my game "Deeds, not Words" (about the English suffragettes, although it really can be used for almost any activist group) is available for free at:

The couple of playtests I've had have gone really well and I'm happy enough with it to publish the first version on DriveThruRPG (as soon as I get the cover from the artist). See also the game's page on RPGGeek:
