Signal Boost: Paizo Blog – International Transgender Day of Visibility

March 31, 2021

Go read!

Many voices, with a lot to say. Still a long way to go.


Go check out The Abuser’s Playbook

November 4, 2020

Not really an RPG, but an educational resource using the PbtA language. Pay what you want, proceeds go to stop cyber bullying.

The Abuser’s Playbook(s) is an educational resource designed to use the language of PBTA moves (rules for the Powered By The Apocalypse system) and character archetypes to teach people about the “mechanics” of abuse.

The Abuser’s Playbook(s) is not designed to be an exhaustive guide to all of the different types of abuse that exist. Nor does it discuss all possible forms of abuse. There were many other “playbooks” I could have written, but I chose to focus on abuser archetypes that are common but don’t often get talked about as being abusive.


Signal Boost – Into the Mother Lands

September 15, 2020
My friend Tanya DePass is part of a new stream highlighting a new game, which is a pretty cool idea to debut a game. 

Into the Mother Lands is a new sci fi odyssey funded by Twitch, developed by a fantastic team of POC RPG designers, with amazing POC talent both on screen and working hard behind the scenes to bring you a tale of misguided travels, adventurers led astray many generations past. Join us on October 4th, 2020 and every Sunday; to learn how the descendants of a to be revealed ancestor are faring on a world that was once alien to them; but is now home. Learn about their cultures, see what their enemies are plotting, and if they can continue to survive on their adopted home world. Our crew is in for interesting times. Their adventures are powered by the Cortex Prime system.

Join us at, Sundays at 4pm Pacific/6pm Central/7pm Eastern/5pm Mountain on October 4th for our adventures!

Maybe there’s a good space for tabletop games to have solid play preview streams the same way videogames pre-release to streamers to build hype. I haven’t seen anything recently with the Cortex system and it’ll be interesting to see if the system is pushed in new ways.


Signal Boost: Help Sean Get Home

August 17, 2020

One of my friends and often-player in my games has been going through a major health crisis for nearly a year, now. He’s been recovering in a care facility, but is looking to get home so he can finish his rehab in a more safe location during this time of pandemic.

If you have a few bucks you can spare, it would mean a lot. He’s looking to fundraise for a wheelchair, a home hospital bed, and to have contractors widen the doors at the house so the chair can get through the front door, bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen.

He has a long history in the RPG scene, and had worked in a FLGS for years and we often talk about games from the 80s and 90s. I know we’re in “Worst Timeline Pandemic Hell2020” so obviously, if you can’t do much, I understand.

Thank you for any help you can provide.
