@Halfjack I get an occasional physical magazine from the printer that did The Clay That Woke talking about their business. They don't' think about cultural innovation. They're excited about ink-based "digital offset" technology they expect to be able to offer.

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.

In 2018 the test of friendship isn't whether you'd help someone move a body, but how you react when they tell you they need help to move three.

*The sale ends today.* If I let it go any longer I won't be able to ship purchases and also make my cross country move happen on schedule.
If you know anyone who's the audience for The Clay That Woke, please let them know.
Thank you.

"That’s the point that I got excited about what this form of writing could do as the fiction launches us into the rules and the rules launch us into more fiction."

That's from Jason D'Angelo's latest post in his series about reading The Clay That Woke. It's pretty great:

My sale ends Friday, so I can get purchases shipped to you and focus on packing and moving and everything else.

If you're reading The Clay That Woke and want to talk about it, Jason D'Angelo has an open invitation:

Someone gives you a free ream of blue copy paper, they've given you far more work to do to use the paper well than the value of it. You should refuse the so-called gift.

@wombat Did I reply to you? I know I replied to someone else who asked the same question. Yes, I'll sell you just a set of tokens. Are you in the United States? Send me an email:

@rafu Yes. You have my email address?

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.

...You'll know we've had our glory days when there's writing about themes in tabletop RPGs, because themes are how an art form does its best work of creating our culture and world.

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...

Cutting, but also more powerfully hopeful about sex and consent than anything else I've read. You don't know how badly you need this article until you read it.

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).

Copies of The Clay That Woke packed and ready to ship. If you're thinking of jumping on my sale, please do it soon. I need to end it soon to focus on packing the house for the move.

@edheil Denver. Danielle got a job with the State of Colorado.

If I can sell 150 copies in the next ten or twelve days it would cut my storage space of books and mailing supplies by almost half and the money would really help with the (shockingly expensive) moving costs.

Thank you. Please reshare wherever you talk with gamers who might be interested.

If you've wanted a physical copy of The Clay That Woke for your collection now is the time.

I'm moving soon across the country, and my little 3' x 4' storage locker is jammed with copies of The Clay That Woke, mailing and packaging supplies, and printing supplies for other projects, and I need to seriously reduce it. Please help me out. I'm putting physical copies of The Clay That Woke on sale at a super reduced price of $14.99.

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 is something you can do too. Make a cover you think might inspire someone to design its game and offer it like this.]

Hot take: You get way more of what you need as a designer from low status playtesters than from high status playtesters.
