  1. There’s a problem with your RSS feed. When I try to download your podcast through an aggregator I’m pulling down every graphic you post in your articles and the mp3 file is getting overwritten with WordPress’ audio player plugin.

  2. Hey, thanks for the mention of Ribbon Drive!

    The game was very intentionally designed to reach a new market. It’s stripped of strange geek genre conventions, it requires no dice or elaborate equipment, it draws from popular media, it involves a more common ‘hobby’ (making mix CDs), it requires only a single session, there’s no “math” in the game, and the writing assumes an audience who will need to learn such stuff as:
    what a scene is
    how to frame a scene
    what tense you speak in
    whether you can speak in character AND out of character.

    So, thanks for the shout-out! It’s good to see that the game is on people’s radar for this reason, as I worked hard to make it so.
