With the impending shutdown of Google+ upon us, we’re excited to create a permanent place for our fans to share session recaps and podcasts, ask rules questions, and stay up to date on the latest Magpie Games news! More details to be announced soon!

Just finished recording a mini-campaign of Velvet Glove that will hopefully be up before April.

Update: I learned that the episodes won’t be posted up until May, after the shutdown has occurred. I’ll post a link here for the website it’ll appear on for now and then post the episodes on the forums when they finally pop up. http://roleplayingexchange.com

We know the imminent G+ shutdown is lingering in the back of all our minds!

We know the imminent G+ shutdown is lingering in the back of all our minds! Before we get sucked into the black hole that can be the holiday season, we would like to gather some intel on where and how our fans would like to transition this community.

Some of you may already use Discord or Reddit, but we know some people find those spaces difficult to navigate. That said, some people want to avoid using Facebook for gaming conversations. While there might not be a perfect space, we’d love a medium in which everyone feels comfortable free to engage, and able to easily reach out to us with questions about gameplay, mechanics, etc.

In addition to options like Discord or Facebook, we’re also considering opening up our own Magpie forums on magpiegames.com as we revamp the site over the next couple of months. Please let us know if that option seems of interest to you!

Let the polling commence! And, of course, more detailed feedback in the comments is always welcome 🙂

My Velvet Glove: What The Dormouse Said game is full, but the waitlist is open. I’ll be using new play materials for this session, showing off some of the work I’ve been doing, and a bit of the default setting, Santa Lucia. The game will be on Hangouts on Air, so I’ll post the link here after we’re done.

And check out Phillip Neitzel’s Ostpunk session as well! I haven’t talked to him about it, but girl gangs in East Germany in the 80s sounds really interesting. 🙂

And keep an eye out! There will be exciting news shared very soon. m/
