    RESISTOR: glitchwitches and SJWs welcome

    by  • February 1, 2016 • Design & Art • Comments Off on RESISTOR: glitchwitches and SJWs welcome

    My friend Elissa and I are currently Kickstarting this zine that I’m really excited about. It’s called RESISTOR, and it features original games, fiction, and artwork focusing on the correlation between technology, magic, and social issues through a cyberpunk lens. We both love the zine aesthetic, that locally printed, hand made, passed out at...

    So my friend and co-blogger Dymphna wrote this beautiful feminist witchy game and shared it on G+. I was like, that’s so awesome! Dang! Look it’s about women’s work but also about being witches! Ah this is everything I like! Then she invited me, Meg Baker, and Filamena Young to write a collection of...

    Writing All The Things

    by  • October 15, 2015 • Design & Art • Comments Off on Writing All The Things

    Freelancing has been an interesting new challenge for me in the game design world. I’ve been writing a lot of stretch goals for Kickstarters, working on small games for a few various projects, and finishing up some really big designs I’ve been working on forever. I’m not really new to the concept of doing...

    Early the campaign of my current Rothlingsmark game, I asked my GM (who is also my husband, Geoffrey) a simple question that completely changed the course of the game. The question was made half in jest. It was a sort of “I’m joking unless you’re serious” kind of joke, anyway. I referenced it in...

    A Similar Kind of Negotiation

    by  • December 23, 2014 • Essays • Comments Off on A Similar Kind of Negotiation

    I want you to imagine that sometime between your 8th and 15th birthdays, your skin gradually gained a blue sheen – nothing so dramatic as waking up one day and discovering that you’d gone full out smurf.  Just… your sixth grade picture shows the same skin tone you always shared with all of your...
