Thanks everyone. Whether you took advantage of the sale, or shared it to help me get the word out, I *really appreciate it.* It has reduced my storage space a lot and helped with moving expenses a lot too.
I can't believe I'm going to move this much assorted paper and cardstock across the country. Linen resume paper, half weight Bristol, various grey and beige cardstock, a couple of Canson drawing pads, various white photocopy and glossy printer paper. The Hammermill is most of a ream of blue photocopy paper. At least I have it all in one box now, instead of all over the place. I really need to do a zine to reduce the quantity of cardstock.
Do you think we're in the new glory days of tabletop RPGs? A while back I said I think we're at the beginning of a trajectory that will play out over the next thirty years. You know how I know it's true? Because there's not yet a comparative literature of tabletop RPGs. No one's writing articles like "Hope and Entropy in the RPGs of Vincent Baker," or any comparative articles about race and racism, politics in worldbuilding, or other themes...
More copies of The Clay That Woke packed and ready to send. It's the most copies I've shipped in a single month since fulfilling the Kickstarter. Someone (not me) should organize a reading club for everyone (maybe including the Italians who are getting it in translation at the beginning of November).
An RPG cover for you to use. If you make a game for it I will put your name on it instead of Doe Jay's name and you can use it.
[The #DoeJayChallenge is something you can do too. Make a cover you think might inspire someone to design its game and offer it like this.]
President Trump has exact requirements for what RPG texts he will read and play. This is the #tRumPG Challenge:
Design an RPG to President Trump’s requirements. Post it to social media by March 5th using the #tRumPG hashtag. As the judge I will pick two winners: 1) a game most likely to be tweeted about by Trump; and 2) a best game if you’re someone other than Trump.
You may not impeach the judge if you don’t like his verdict.
Some creative sins aren’t exclusive to game designers — plagiarism, cultural appropriation, sexism, crass commercialism, etc. But some sins are.
Creating game hack before ever playing the game as written.
Willful betrayal or abuse of player trust in the game.
What are others?
