Project Update: FINAL WEEK! Introducing: Sharang Biswas and Ouhie!

Project Update: Star Crossed for a Crowd with Bayshore Landing
Several years ago Alex and I wrote Space Station Fobolex on a whim, trying to meet the heavy demand that her intimate two-player game had at conventions. A big room full of people playing Star Crossed would be fine, but we could not resist the urge to do something special with that energy.
So we wrote up a silly space station and tied it into the shared universe from a larp we wrote called The Fobolex Interstellar Corporate Retreat. Then at the event we cast 20 players as weirdos, aliens, and lovelorn space nerds just seeking real connection in the big, empty galaxy. All the characters worked well together—in the sense that they all have something keeping them apart—and Space Station Fobolex has been a big hit at conventions!

Project Update: Get The High Ground With Star Crossed Love Letters!
You probably know that I Have the High Ground is Jess Levine's heart-pounding two-player game of loaded banter and posturing before a climactic duel.
And so you must think: those two games would go together really well, right?
Well, Jess and I did play the two games on the Party of Onepodcast, mashed up as one continuous story about alien diplomats who ended up in a chili cook-off for planet Earth...
OR... you can get the limited edition premium version that includes dice, tokens, and everything else you need to play:
Thanks so much to Jess Levine for suggesting this mashup, and to Jeff Stormer for letting us take over his podcast for a week. We had SO much fun playing these games together, and it's pretty clear that Jess and I share a lot of values when it comes to designing games - player collaboration, tension, emotions first, mechanics that draw from life (in her case, from real-life fencing!) and you know... being hot.
Add I Have the High Ground to your order today!
Project Update: A humble request
We're halfway through the campaign, and have hit an astounding *three times* our initial funding goal. Thank you, backers! I'm so proud to be bringing Star Crossed to a wider audience, and giving SC fans both oft-requested additions and exciting new surprises.
We know we're making this book. Now it's just a question of how far we can share it.
If you want the two player game of forbidden love, and all its new settings and new ways to play, to flourish: tell a friend about it. Tell your gaming group. Post it in your group chat, Discord server, or wherever else you connect with people.
The world of TTRPGs has grown from a little island to a vast and diverse archipelago. Word-of-mouth is more important than ever.
So, that's it. If you love Star Crossed, or are stoked to try it out, or find yourself looking forward to all the new ways to play - tell somebody. We would appreciate it.
(Next week, we'll be sharing details and samples from Solo, Three-Player, and SC for a Crowd!)

But maybe you’d like a trio of characters to play? And a romantic setting for them to swoon in? Well, ask Jason Morningstar and you get this:
Project Update: Introducing: Amal El-Mohtar, Max Gladstone, and Sovanny Vorn!
She is also really good at drawing cool birds and handsome gentlemen of a certain age. So when I said, “bird dragon and silver fox knight, please!” she needed no further instruction.
