Hello all! Sorry for the delayed post this week, it was for a lot of reasons not least because my whole household has Covid.Continue reading “Cities of Khorvaire and August Hiatus”
I’m here with a special bonus post because I came across something important that lots of people need to see. Steph over at TTRPG Kids wrote up a post about safety tools for gaming with kids. This topic is important for every gaming table, and Steph does a great job of breaking it down for younger audiences.
If you haven’t thought of using safety tools with kids, this is your guide for doing so. Mostly, though, I think people are resistant to safety tools in general because it seems like a lot of work or like gaming groups won’t be able to do it productively. If little kids can do it, though, anyone can. Steph points out Consent in Gaming by Monte Cook Games which is a very excellent (and free!) resource and Steph does a great job of showing how to personalize it.
Anyways, this is just another reminder to use safety tools at your table and a shout out to Steph for a great summary.
I’m here today with an awesome game from Nerdburger Games (the same company as Capers, Die Laughing, and Good Strong Hands). This time it’s slightly lighter fare, a game that is suitable for kids and kids-at-heart with adaptable mechanics for telling the sort of stories you might see from, say, someone with the surname Henson. Allow me to introduce Felt, Friendship, and Feelings.Continue reading “Felt, Friendship, and Feelings Review”
Two posts in one day? You saw that right. Today just happens to be the launch day for Toyko:Otherscape, the next iteration of the City of Mist set in a cyberpunk setting of colliding myth, technology, and humanity. Although the first setting book is focused on Tokyo, the game itself can (and will!) be set in cities across the world so you can still create your own setting with all your own amazing stories.
It’s a really amazing game, not least because one of the authors is yours truly! I’m truly honored and hyped to be a part of this great team and if you want to be part of the group getting this game off the ground then consider joining the Kickstarter. If you join today you can get in on the Day 1 perks!
Hello, folks! Here’s a short Thursday update to spread the word about two upcoming products from Son of Oak, Tokyo:Otherworld and Local Legends. These are two expansions to the City of Mist game and Tokyo:Otherworld is actually a brand cyberpunk setting and game! Keep scrolling down to the Local Legends announcement, though, and you’ll see that yours truly is listed as one of the contributors. I’m really excited about this and look forward to being able to show off the book to all of you farther down the road.
I made a thing! The fantastic game of Wanderhome has been a real lifeline this year, something that makes me feel grounded and optimistic when everything else is going crazy. I’ve released a few different additions to the game here on my blog but this is by far the biggest.Continue reading “Down the Wandering Road”
Happy end-of-November everyone! Today I’m here with a game that I’ve been really enjoying lately and if you are celebrating a colonialist-but-family-oriented holiday this week (just hypothetically) you might want a quick and fun game to try. If that’s the case, I recommend you give The Ward a whirl.Continue reading “The Ward Acute Edition Review”
In Invisible Sun, the arabest are a mysterious people who lived in the vicinity of Satyrine years ago. Very little is written about the arabest in the rulebooks (though more is hinted in secrets known to a few) so I thought it would be fun to write a little. And while I’m writing a story for the arabest, why not write four?Continue reading “Arabest Rumors”
The Mephit family has grown again! Dr. James and I are excited to finally meet our third kiddo and I’m looking forward to a future day when I can get a solid player group of just offspring. I’m kidding with that but the Mephling and Little Grue are well on their way to being well-versed little geeks so I expect their new brother to follow in their footsteps. Kid Imix, as he will be known here, is sweet and a wonderful addition to the clan.Continue reading “Meet Kid Imix!”
