Their new book, Even If We Break (available now), is a locked-room thriller about five friends who come together for one last time for the RPG that brought them together four years prior, only to discover that one of them has sinister intentions.

Twitter: @mariekeyn Instagram: @mariekeyn Website: mariekenijkamp.com Your Podcast Hosts Greg Tito Greg Tito has had weird and long career as an Off Broadway stage manager, a playwright, a theater carpenter, a secretary, an RPG designer, a games journalist, and now a PR/Marketing person. He has loved Dungeons & Dragons ever since 1985 when he found an old copy of the AD&D Dungeon Master’s Guide on his brother’s bookshelf and he honed that love of fantasy storytelling in the dark streets of Sasserine by way of the Upper West Side gaming group he joined in 2004. He moved his family (wife + two young kids) to Seattle in 2015 to work on D&D and he’s never looked back. Twitter: @Gregtito Shelly Mazzanoble Shelly Mazzanoble will always play a magic-user. There. She said it. Enough pretending to want to break out of her comfort zone. She’s a magic-user. She’s also the brand lead for Avalon Hill and loves talking about that one time she played Diplomacy and SOMEONE (okay, it was Ben Petrisor) stabbed her in the back and took over her beloved Russia. If you enjoy tales of sorcery, board game upheavals, and reasons her 3 year-old is crying (HINT: She tried to make him eat a Nutella crepe), find Shelly on Twitter and Facebook.

  3. Dealer's choice. When you're Star Fleet it doesn't matter who or what is in the way of the mission.
  4. Ah! I misunderstood what she was saying. Thanks for the clarification on the Borg. I'm wasn't going to go with a Borg or Borg-ish character for my first go at the system but I could see where the developers might include it in chargen. There were a lot of Federation (and Romulan, and Klingon, and...) citizens assimilated by the Borg in the Alpha and Beta quadrants. The Borg wouldn't assimilate then pull all the new collective members back into the Delta quadrant so eventually there would be people liberated from the collectives that would try to get on with their lives but still have remnants of their Borg experience. Some of them would be Star Fleet or young enough to go on to Star Fleet when older.
  5. Hi Noir. Embarrassingly, when I first read your reply on my phone I thought it was from Nina. Sorry about that. So why engineering rather than medical? On a small ship it wouldn't seem to be terribly unusual for the medical officer to be a lieutenant so someone with a background advantage might be selected for the posting despite being young. And some of the life events look like they'd give a medical depth a lot of normal path doctors wouldn't have. Being a ship's counselor would be an easier medical alternative but its just not the same. For everyone and along more general lines; I notice Borg show up in the chargen system. Are there any examples of this outside of 7 of 9 from Voyager?
  6. Okay. that was interesting reading. Still digesting the rules but if no one minds I'd like to try creating the ship surgeon / chief MO.
  7. That sounds great. Saw the PM and I'll get a chance to take a look at the material in just a bit. Thanks!
  8. If the young officer option were chosen how would that work with the assignments given in the list? These assignments definitely appear to be senior staff and wouldn't seem to be open to a junior officer without some really serious Voyager-esque shenanigans going on. Why the question? Because I'm not familiar with the game system and don't have the books ergo being an ensign would probably be a good fit.

  10. This is just creepy. I'm glad I never went into the T2M game.
  11. It seems to me it would be easier to pave the future for every one than for just a group. I may be missing some of the details here. I'm English. I do not feel guilt about American history.

It does mean it is not the whole story of being human. Being a nova doesn't change that either. Being a nova means we can soar higher further and faster. It also means we can fall lower and more quickly.
  13. Hello. I apologize for intruding. Truly I do. Yet there is something I thought to add to the conversation. A bit less than two months past I was a baseline. The world where I lived grew a tiny bit brighter each day. I don't think many went to their beds hungry. Not all of the families of my friends owned an op terminal but all knew how to use mine. I know wicked things happened in that world. Sometimes to people I knew. What strikes me as I read these posts is that world does not seem to be the world most of you live in. Most still do not go abed hungry, own op terminals and wickedness is still there. But in the world everyone writes about there is a sense of conflict. Sometimes even a sense of war. This is strange to me. I look around the world where I live today as a nova and it is a little different than my world of two months past. But I don't see the war.
