    Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done

    "Never say never." I intend for this to be my last post on this thread (and, frankly, on EN World) for the foreseeable future. It is entirely possibly something will pop up that requires me to dive back in, but I honestly don't believe anything else I have to say in the meantime is going to be...

    Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done

    (Reposting from home account to allay "sock monkey" concerns) It has been suggested that I need to "collect my friends" in this thread - specifically, those individuals who have chosen to take my "cause" and use it to advance misogynistic ideas, victim-blaming tactics, MRA agendas, and worse...

    Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done

    The first instinct of the privileged when they sense they are under attack is a vigorous and spirited defense. The first instinct of the marginalized is something quite different – acceptance, retreat, avoidance, all the while hoping others don't jump in to elevate the attack any further...

    Sean's Picks of the Week (0403-0406) - Community Content Week!

    The mechanisms (legal, financial, and production-wise) WotC crafted with DriveThruRPG for the Dungeon Masters Guild launched a whole new concept in our hobby and industry. Community created content has always been a part of gaming (see the Perrin Conventions of 1976), but never has the concept...

    Sean's Picks of the Week (0326-0330) - It's In the Cards Week!

    Possibly one of my strangest theme weeks ever, this one is devoted to games that feature either Tarot or poker decks as the main mechanism for task resolution. Inspired by the release of James Wallis' Alas Vegas, I decided to take a look at other games that feature card-driven gameplay...

    Check Out The Scene At Atlanta's AndoCon

    Thanks so much for the kind words. I only wish I'd had a chance to show you Freedom Squadron!

    Sean's Picks of the Week (0319-0323) - Tales of the Five Editions Week!

    The World's Most Popular Roleplaying Game - Dungeons & Dragons - inspires more discourse and controversy over rules decisions than any other game I've ever known (RPG or not). OK, no, Magic the Gathering creates more, but D&D is up there. Every iteration has its diehard fans, and there are...

    Sean's Picks of the Week (0312-0316) - Mighty Mice Week!

    Perhaps one of my odder choices for a theme week, but I do find it fascinating how many creators and fans are drawn to the idea of mice (and rats, and related critters) as heroes and villains within genre stories. I mean, let's face it, Secret of NIMH remains one of the most fascinating and...

    Sean's Picks of the Week (0305-0309) - GMs Day Sale Week!

    As of this being published, you have only a couple of days left to take advantage of the amazing 33% off thousands of products on DriveThruRPG as part of the GM's Day Sale. I decided to point out some of the top-selling items that folks are grabbing even as you read this. This is flat out one of...

    Sean's Picks of the Week (0226-0302) - Bundle of Joy Week!

    Gamers love bundle deals. We discovered this when I was still the Marketing & Communications Director for DriveThruRPG/RPGNow, and we did the Haiti Earthquake Relief Bundle way back when. Sure, it was for charity, which also drove interest... but the unbelievable deal folks got by paying just a...

    Sean's Picks of the Week (0219-0223) - Special Ops Gaming Week!

    This week I admittedly indulge a bit in some self-promotion for the upcoming Freedom Squadron Kickstarter, but I do so by pointing out a number of other great products oriented around military, paramilitary, and special operations in roleplaying. All who design in this field stand on the...

    Sean's Picks of the Week (0212-0216) - BAMFsies Week!

    On February 8th, the folks involved with the BAMF Podcast announced the winners of their 2017 BAMFsies Awards. Once again, I was honored to be one of the judges, and there's some great superhero gaming stuff for you to check out from last year. As well, don't miss out on the giant superhero sale...

    Sean's Picks of the Week (0205-0209) - Steam & Steel Week!

    From the focus on alt-history to the over-the-top gears-and-lightning fantastical, steampunk remains a compelling and entertaining genre that gains much of its life in the tabletop RPG world. As the company named for one of steampunk's greatest inspirations launches a car into space, it seemed...

    Sean's Picks of the Week (0129-0202) - Tales of the Fairies Week!

    Sometimes I get my themes for the weekly Picks from the most fun and interesting places. In this case, my friend Lana Smith (AKA Alana Smith Brown of King of the Geeks fame) was asking about games in which her group could play fairies and experience fairy-tale style storytelling. Since I delved...
