Hey all! Promo posts!
I run Thoughty at briecs.com & fund all of the interviews, game design, & articles thru Patreon.com/briecs. This right now is my only consistent income, & takes a lot of time. Thoughty has over 200 interviews!
I do game design, consulting, & editing, and you can find my work history and rates here: briecs.com/p/my-work.html. I consult on queerness, disability/chronic pain, gender identity (nonbinary, masculine), and mental illness (bipolar disorder, anxiety, PTSD).
I write, research, present, and help film Leading with Class, a web show teaching leadership using games, with +John W. Sheldon. It's supported by
patreon.com/leadingwithclass. You can see production photos and updates at http://Instagram.com/leadingwithlclass and twitter.com/leadingwclass. I have a grad degree in leadership & this is my dream way to use it!
Leading with Class can be used in classrooms, workplaces, & personal learning environments.
Check out the summary here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=11IQF3gfRmX4k44BqAnTJiqARS6a6BMsm If you want to have me for a workshop (live or virtual), email leadingwithclass at gmail!
I consult on leadership (including developing your organization's mission and values!) & can present workshops on leadership (& games!). I'll be doing one at Big Bad Con this October on Leadership in Games: Not Just for GMs
(https://www.bigbadcon.com/events/leadership-in-games-not-just-for-gms/)!It's a huge event for me!
Find games I've designed at briecs.itch.io including Let Me Take a Selfie, I love you and I adore you (a queer love letter writing game), and Behrend Bernhard, Esq. (a performative party game). LMTaS is also on IPR & DriveThruRPG!
You can also look on DriveThruRPG for Of the Woods: Lonely Games of Imagination, a collection I contributed to & curated from great creators. (link: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/209823/Of-the-Woods-Lonely-Games-of-Imagination) The proceeds go to the Trevor Project to support queer youth. Fun games, good cause!
I just finished my first Kickstarter & we're in the design phase! Behind the Masc is a zine reenvisioning masculinity through the eyes of non-cis masc people. ( https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/briecs/behind-the-masc-zine/) We're super excited about it & I can't wait to share it!
I'm planning to Kickstart my game Turn, a slice of life supernatural game about shapeshifters in small towns (in beta at http://tinyurl.com/turn-rpg-beta-2018), this fall (Oct 31 is the planned date). I have Brennan Taylor helping me run it, so I'm very excited!
