Printers, Pins, Appearances, Plans, and Edu-tainment!
The files for the physical version of Star Crossed (the box, the tower, the booklet, and the character sheet pads) are safe in the hands of our friends at GPI. We're on track to ship to our warehouses in November, and from there to fulfill them to you! We'll keep you updated on any changes or delays, but right now it looks like we're going to nail this Kickstarter on spec and on schedule! Fingers crossed.
Star Crossed at XOXO Fest
Big news, friends: I just got invited to run Star Crossed at XOXO Fest, an experimental festival for independent artists and creators who work on the internet. As a doer of good tweets who got my writing start thoroughly embarrassing myself on Grouvee, it couldn't be a better fit. Unfortunately registration has closed, but if you're in Portland, Oregon the weekend of September 6th, I hope to see you!
Big Bad Plans
The month after XOXO, we'll be at Big Bad Con, in Walnut Creek, California from October 11 to 14. To follow up last year's Night Witches Wide Con, we've got something special planned...
Space Station Fobolex is an interstellar waypoint, a crossroads of weird aliens with even weirder cultures. Into this maelstrom, a new force will arise – a force perhaps unfamiliar to the hardscrabble crew and visitors to Space Station Fobolex. A force called… love.
Ten tables! Twenty players! All playing Star Crossed in the most spectacular conglomeration of awkward, beautiful, tragic romances ever seen in this sector! If you'll be at BBC, you won't want to miss it.
Apparently we have to wait to send these out with your complete packages including the game but ahhhh look a them! So pretty! I want everyone in the world to have a shiny friend like this on their cool denim jacket or messenger bag. Or wherever. Huge thanks to our partners Pin Pros Plus for doing such a great job. We're pleased as punch.
Oh, and Jess is almost done her final illustration. We have special plans for it.
Wanna Learn Something?
The 2018 Living Games Conference information hub is live, and that means you can now see the archived videos of all the keynotes, panels, and roundtable discussions from the conference.
That means you can see Alex speaking about:
Playing a Satisfying Romance in Larp,
Consent and Safety in Larp Communities,
Spirituality and Transformational Roleplaying, and
Queer Game Design Principles and Practice.
The rest of the videos are amazing, too! Have a look and learn some cool stuff about the cutting edge of live action gaming.
Whew, what a long update! Thanks for reading this far, friend. Can't wait to share even more exciting news. We'll keep you posted.
