Six Years of Power
Michael over at Futile Position had a few short questions for me about Kingdom and Microscope. Unfortunately for him I had a few very long answers:
As a special bonus this interview also includes a recap of almost the entire second Crossroad of the same colony ship game that I used as an example at the top of the kickstarter page. Will Captain Browning shake off his rocky start and emerge as the leader the Olympic Dawn needs? In short: no. Lucky for us Chief Bock was ready to (very, very reluctantly) step up and be that man. For a lot longer than he wanted.
I’ve also been asked to participate in an online panel this Saturday as part of ConTessa:
Collaborative World-Building and Gaming
Harness the power of the group to make better games. Collaborative gaming doesn’t necessarily mean a GM giving up power. Instead it can serve as a tool to draw players in, create novel settings, and provide engaging experiences. The panel will discuss ideas and practical applications.
We’re excited to announced our scheduled participants: Meguey Baker (A Thousand and One Nights: A Game of Enticing Stories, Psi*Run), Brad Murray (Diaspora, Hollowpoint), and Ben Robbins (Microscope, Kingdom). Moderator: Sherri Stewart.

Tell me that doesn’t look like fun.
