Have a question?
The campaign description mentions, "It's also a guide for how to pitch these games to your friends, create a welcoming environment to play them in, and support healthy boundaries at the gaming table."
I'm curious about 'how to pitch these games to your friends'. Is that referring to getting non-gaming friends to try this as a game? Pitching the themes or system to gaming friends used to more traditional games? Both? My ongoing gaming groups are (as far as I know) all cishet players, and I find the idea of a game entirely about queer identity and community intimidating to pitch or play, while I know others feel similarly intimidated by a game about Jewish identity and community (and I'm very excited about that aspect, but I don't know if my non-Jewish players would be).
So, I'm curious, will the advice in the book address non-marginalized players that are nervous about being ignorant or appropriative in play? (While I also realize that non-marginalized players don't need to be addressed if they're not a target, and definitely don't need to be centered)
Been really looking forward to this launch! Glad to see this project come into it's own on the main stage.
This is such an awesome project! <3
Congrats! Very excited to see this finally launch (to the point I had an actual dream about it last night)!
My group played four session of Dream Askew back in January, and we wound up crying every single session. I liked it enough to commission art of my Torch. You’ve made something pretty exceptional here, Avery, and I’m excited to see it thrive.
