#introduction: I'm Kit, I like games about feelings and people, ideally in weird (and especially spooky) circumstances. I make some, too. Been working on Et in Arcadia Ego, my Regency fantasy game, for a while, and have a few other smaller projects bubbling along.
You wanna play? Let's play.
This is my all-RPGs-all-the-time alt.
Reading/playing a Regency fantasy IF, and I just twigged to what I don't like about it: while the game does something valuable in casting aside period homophobia, sexism, racism, etc, that also undercuts the thematic emphasis of Regency fantasy. For me, writing in the Regency is a way to explore society's restrictions, bigotries, and failings against the contrast of magic.
Hey if you like Django, Django REST Framework, and Django Channels, I wrote a thing that might interest you:
Read my interview about #ThousandArrows with @briecs! I talk about my research process and the game's scope, and show off some art. We're down to the campaign's last ten days, and we need your help to fund. Ride with us. http://www.briecs.com/2018/11/five-or-so-questions-on-thousand-arrows.html
"“You’re right, Paul, he overpowered a woman,” Mr. Jones interjected.
Mr. Acosta did no such thing. On Thursday, the White House News Photographers Association said it was “appalled” that the White House had distributed the Infowars clip.
“As visual journalists, we know that manipulating images is manipulating truth,” the group said in a statement. “It’s deceptive, dangerous and unethical. Knowingly sharing manipulated images is equally problematic...”"
Thousand Arrows is a tabletop role-playing game of Japanese Warring States-era samurai drama. All my years of work and study in game design, Asian history and classics, and martial arts led to this. Please back, share, and bring it to life! http://kck.st/2SqyXyl Gunpowder and betrayal!
I'm writing the almost-last section of my Regency Fantasy game, and it's, y'know, *lore*. Writing about the regions of England at the time. Southwest, southeast, East, Midlands, North. Also London, but that's special and different.
What would be useful to include in each section? It's like no more than 500 words, just a little orientation and intro. Landscape, economic activity, social issues, what else?

We're going to drown the #HHS in postcards and they'll back the fuck off in the face of the postal onslaught.
Here's a PDF of a 4x6 postcard https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/lucan/Postcard4x6.pdf
And here's A6 for people who use metric https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/lucan/PostcardA6.pdf
A letter is better, but a postcard is good. Get all your lazy allies to put their names down! We're going to win.
I just last night read through The Clay that Woke cover-to-cover, which I don't think I've done with any other RPG. It's fascinating, and both well- and differently-written. During the day I was walking down the street reading it. It gripped me.
