[19:02] <+Stacey> hi. im stacey montgomery. i sometimes post on the rpgnet forums as Princess Stacey. i recently wrote “Villains Accelerated,” which is a collection of supervillains written up for Fate Accelerated.
[19:03] <+Stacey> done
[19:03] <+Stacey> 🙂
[19:03] <~Dan> Thanks, Stacey!
[19:03] <~Dan> The floor is open to questions!
[19:03] <~Dan> So let’s see… Can you describe the scope of Villains Accelerated?
[19:04] <+Stacey> well, it has 8 villains, and its about 20 pages long, and it goes for about US$4.00
[19:04] <+Stacey> it presents the characters in straightforward FAE format, so theres no new rules or anything, just characters
[19:04] *** Acenoid has quit IRC: Disintegrated: ChatZilla 0.9.90.1 [Firefox 32.0.1/20140911151253]
[19:05] <~Dan> What are some of the unique twists to writing up characters for Fate Accelerated?
[19:06] <+Stacey> well, the fun part for me is that the way FAE works you really get to try to use the whole character
[19:06] <+Stacey> that is, the personality of the villains may be as important as the powers
[19:06] <~Dan> Can you give an example of how that works for one of your villains?
[19:06] <+Stacey> so its more fun than just writing up power sets in, say, wild talents (though that is also fun)
[19:06] *** TwentySix has quit IRC: Disintegrated: (Link: http://www.mibbit.com)http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client
[19:07] <+Stacey> well, for instance, there’s a sort of ninja-weapon x type named Xiphos
[19:07] <+Stacey> he could practically be a canadian superhero
[19:09] <+Stacey> and writing him up, I get to focus on things like his nastiness, rather than trying to work out his armor penetration numbers. so it’s more like Marvel Heroic, say, than mutants and masterminds
[19:10] <+Stacey> so for instance, there’s a character named Cold Blooded whose only weakness is that she doesnt realize how loyal she is to her minions
[19:11] <+Stacey> shes tough and heartless, a demands total loyalty – but her trouble aspect is “loyalty is a two edge sword”
[19:11] <+Stacey> (or thereabouts, i dont have the text in front of me)
[19:11] * ~Dan nods
[19:12] <+Stacey> i think that sort of thing is fun, and its what im looking for when I buy a pre-made villains – its a hook I can build a story on
[19:12] <~Dan> For those unfamiliar with Fate in general, can you explain how these sorts of traits function in play?
[19:12] <~Dan> Like, IIRC, “Nastiness” can have an actual game effect, correct?
[19:13] <+Stacey> sure, in fate a character has Aspects that as always true, but which can also be invoked for various benefits – like a bonus on an appropriate die roll.
[19:14] <+Stacey> aspects can be things like “Im the best as what I do” or “im looking for the six fingered man” – they can help you out, but they can also be a source of fate points
[19:14] <+Stacey> so when Cold blooded tries to defend her minions, that loyalty thing might help her out – but it also might force her hand
[19:15] <+Stacey> it helps characters be, well, character driven
[19:16] <+Stacey> but one complaint about fate is that it can be hard to whip up good characters fast
[19:16] <+Stacey> so i figure that pre-made characters, like in my product, are handy
[19:16] <~Dan> Is that because they’re mechanically complex, or is it more like they just require a bit more thought?
[19:17] <+Stacey> not mechanically complex, its just that sometimes people feel pressured to be creative when asked to whip up a few aspects
[19:17] <+Stacey> i generally let people make their characters as we play, to keep the pressure of
[19:17] <+Stacey> but i figure pre-made characters would also help, even if you just mine them for ideas
[19:18] <+Stacey> especially for the GM, who might need a lot of villains fast
[19:18] <~Dan> Sure.
[19:18] <+Stacey> superhero games sometimes require a bunch of characters to show up all at once
[19:18] <~Dan> Now, going in the other direction, to what degree does Fate Accelerated allow you to delve into the “nitty-gritty” aspects of the characters?
[19:18] <+Stacey> and honestly, I was just trying to promote FAE supers
[19:19] <~Dan> I know that in some versions of Fate, weapons don’t matter, for example.
[19:20] <+Stacey> ahh, this is a trick of fate that often gets overlooked – fate allows you to get as deep into the nitty gritty as you want. in one game, weapons dont matter. but if you want to play Fate zombie survival horror…
[19:20] <+Stacey> you may be counting every bullet carefully
[19:20] <+Stacey> fate follows the fiction
[19:20] <+Stacey> so, for instance, with supers…
[19:20] <+Stacey> how fast can superman fly?
[19:21] <+Stacey> well, fate Accelerated doesnt tell you, but you can still decide, and then that decision matters

[19:21] *** Guest56 has quit IRC: Disintegrated: Guest56
[19:21] <~Dan> That’s good to know.
[19:22] <+Stacey> so fate allows nitty gritty, but does not require
[19:22] <~Dan> One of my pet peeves is the sort of rules-light game that makes a point of telling you that such-and-such “doesn’t matter”.
[19:23] <+Stacey> i know what you mean. FAE is certianly rules light, but those things matter as much as you want, and will vary from game to game.
[19:23] <+Stacey> i like to say that fate doesnt model physics, it models joss whedon
[19:23] <+Stacey> (which isnt quite right, but what the heck)
[19:23] * ~Dan chuckles
[19:24] <+Stacey> FAE is rules light though, for me it fits right in with Risus and FU – though its a bit more fleshed out than either of those
[19:24] <~Dan> FU?
[19:25] *** Sharpe has joined #rpgnet
[19:25] *** ChanServ sets mode +v Sharpe
[19:25] <~Dan> (Howdy, Sharpe! Long time no see, buddy!)
[19:25] <+Sharpe> Hey, Dano!
[19:25] <+Stacey> sorry, FU is the Free Universal System, a very nice rules light game you can get for free – and totally should! Its like the new Risus.
[19:25] <~Dan> Interesting… I’ll have to check that out.
[19:26] <~Dan> I will also have to be careful when referring to it.
[19:26] <+Stacey> yes, its a shame about the title, many have died needlessly!
[19:26] <~Dan> 😀
[19:27] <~Dan> So to be honest, I can’t think of a whole lot of general questions to ask about a book consisting of eight characters. So perhaps we should take a look at said characters? 🙂
[19:27] <+Stacey> well, it is just 20 pages, so there is only so much one can say
[19:28] <~Dan> (Sharpe: Q&A in progress, in case you hadn’t guessed. #rpgnet2 open for general chat!)
[19:28] <+Stacey> well lets see, theres a villains named megafauna. shes a woman who can turn into a giant yeti like creature, all strength and power
[19:28] *** Alberiel has joined #rpgnet
[19:28] *** ChanServ sets mode +v Alberiel
[19:29] <~Dan> Oh, I can ask all sorts of questions, but the odds of the audience realizing that I’m just stalling for time increases exponentially the longer I keep it up.
[19:29] <~Dan> (Welcome to #rpgnet, Alberiel!)
[19:29] <+Stacey> megafauna fun because shes just a villain for the money
[19:29] <+Stacey> – but being so tough, she finds super combat to be fun, she loves it
[19:30] <~Dan> How would you compare her to known comicbook characters in terms of brute strength?
[19:30] <~Dan> And I love her name, btw!
[19:30] <+Stacey> oh, she a bargain basement incredible hulk, ready to go toe with, um, the thing
[19:30] <+Stacey> she gets a special bonus whenver she uses a piece of scenery as a weapon
[19:30] <~Dan> Is it sad that I immediately think of Monstrous (75) Strength?
[19:31] <+Stacey> no, it is bittersweet
[19:31] <~Dan> (I was a hardcore Marvel Superheroes guy back in the day.)
[19:31] <+Stacey> megafauna comes with some fun plot hooks -for instance, she doesnt do “blow up the world” jobs
[19:31] <+Stacey> because she likes the world
[19:31] <~Dan> That’s where she keeps all her stuff!
[19:32] <+Stacey> so what does she do when she finds out shes working for a blow up the world plot? will she go to the heroes? will they believe her?
[19:32] <+Stacey> thats sort of thing
[19:32] <~Dan> Very nice.
[19:32] <~Dan> (You there, Alberiel? 🙂 )
[19:32] <+Stacey> i tried to make 8 villains you could turn into a evenings game, if you were stuck
[19:33] <~Dan> Seems like a nice goal.
[19:33] <+Stacey> also, i wrote a bunch of stunts for each villain – you could give them one stunt in play, or two or three, or the whole pile
[19:33] <+Stacey> thus making it easy to adjust how tough a character would be in play, depending on what you needed
[19:34] <~Dan> Right, right.
[19:34] <+Stacey> so megafauna’s strength doesnt change, but you can adjust how effective she is with it
[19:34] <~Dan> So you’ve given the GM a bunch of dials and switches to play with for each character.
[19:35] <+Stacey> yes, fate makes that easy, and i wrote up the extra stunts because thats the fun part
[19:35] <+Stacey> it also means you can mine those stunts for your own characters
[19:35] * ~Dan nods
[19:36] <~Dan> So who’s next on the lineup? 🙂
[19:37] <+Stacey> oh, Cold blooded is fun
[19:38] <+Stacey> shes a crime boss who runs the local city underworld, more or less by demanding protection from everyone
[19:39] <+Stacey> she is super strong and tough, and has cold powers that can leave you shivering. she is pretty ruthless, but she has two weaknesses – one, she returns loyalty and has started to think of the city as “hers”
[19:40] <+Stacey> and also, she pretends she like cold, but its a bit of a ruse
[19:40] <+Stacey> she actually drains heat… so cold isnt her best environment. and she doesnt want you to think about that too much.
[19:40] <+GenoFoxx> Wouldn’t megafauna be a better name if she turned into a repetoire of various prehistoric giant mammals?
[19:41] <+Stacey> it would be a great name in either instance 🙂
[19:41] * ~Dan chuckles
[19:42] <+Stacey> i tried to fill a variety of niches, so cold-blooded makes a good local boss, but megafauna is for hire and might work for almost anyone
[19:42] <~Dan> Interesting set of abilities. You don’t usually see cold-based characters also having super-strength.
[19:43] *** Guest98 has joined #rpgnet
[19:43] *** ChanServ sets mode +v Guest98
[19:43] <+GenoFoxx> Does Cold Blooded have a maximum temperature that can’t drain thermal energy from?
[19:43] <~Dan> (Welcome to #rpgnet, Guest98!)
[19:43] <+GenoFoxx> “Say she’s in a smelter room ala Terminator 2 would that be too much for her to drain?”
[19:44] <+Stacey> well, the hotter is the more she likes it – but i didnt set the minimum temperature she can work with, the GM will want to set that to taste – your campaign might be set in Brasilia, or in Oslo
[19:45] <+GenoFoxx> I was just wonder what it would take to ‘overload’ her
[19:45] <+Stacey> if the room had an aspect like “hot enough to melt metal” she would like use that to her advantage – while i didnt set an overload number, it would be reasonable to have one
[19:46] <+GenoFoxx> oops forget….this if FATE
[19:46] <+GenoFoxx> is^
[19:46] <+Stacey> well, its Fate Accelerated, which is worse – or better, depending on your taste
[19:47] <~Dan> Who’s next? 🙂
[19:48] *** Guest98 has quit IRC: Disintegrated: (Link: http://www.mibbit.com)http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client
[19:49] <+Stacey> um, Professor Hebanon is fun, he’s a man possessed by a demonic spirit that turns him into a mad scientist – it’s something of an homage to the game “Better Angels” by Mr Stolze
[19:49] *** DireNinja has joined #rpgnet
[19:49] *** ChanServ sets mode +v DireNinja
[19:49] <+Stacey> i actually put in two mad scientists, which may have been a bit much. but i like mad scientists.
[19:49] <~Dan> (wb, DireNinja!)
[19:49] <+DireNinja> 🙂
[19:50] <~Dan> Mad scientists are awesome.
[19:50] <+GenoFoxx> so he’s like if Danny Phantom’s Technus got ahold of a human body?
[19:51] <+Stacey> so Professor Hebanon does a lot of crazy, cartoon villain stuff, as the human side tries to blunt the edge of the demons evil. his trouble aspect is “a house divided”
[19:51] <+Stacey> alas, i dont know danny phantom, so… maybe?
[19:51] <+DireNinja> sorry im late, is there like a 2 sentence blurb that can catch me up?
[19:51] <+DireNinja> lol
[19:52] <+Stacey> the fun with Hebanon is that youd be better off if you dont just cream him – you kind of want to play along with him – but that may not be obvious at first
[19:52] <+Stacey> “Villains Accelerated” – 8 pre made super villains for Fate Accelerated!
[19:53] <+DireNinja> gotcha, cool 🙂
[19:53] <+Stacey> on sale now – though i think we just fell off the “hot 100” list on rpgnow. I fear that fame is fleeting.
[19:55] <+Stacey> theres another villains named “the interceptor”
[19:55] *** RandBrittain has joined #rpgnet
[19:55] *** ChanServ sets mode +v RandBrittain
[19:55] <~Dan> (Howdy, RandBrittain!)
[19:56] <+Stacey> he makes his living as a villain for hire who specializes in keeping super heroes off your back
[19:56] <+Stacey> like so many bad guys, the Interceptor has a bit of a secret
[19:57] <+Stacey> he has “nemesis” powers that allow him to counter superpowers – but hes actually easy meat for a few guys with baseball bats and no powers
[19:58] <+Stacey> which is just me trying to give each villain a twist – im fairly transparentm, alas
[19:58] * ~Dan chuckles
[19:59] <+Stacey> theres a second mad scientist – Dr Westerly, “the mad scientist”
[19:59] <+Stacey> hes mad because everyone thinks his inventions are just his superpowers, not his hard work and talent. he plays the role of super mad scientist to a hilt
[20:00] <+Stacey> i believe he several nobel prizes for science – he collects them from people
[20:01] <~Dan> 😀
[20:02] <~Dan> Does he have a standard set of gadgets, or is he always mixing it up?
[20:02] <+Stacey> you can do a great storyline by having hebanon and Westerly get into a crazy villain fight, with the world caught in the middle!
[20:02] <+Stacey> Westerly has invented the interociter, which does almost everything and anything
[20:03] <+Stacey> it is the invention he was expecting the nobel prize for, but you know how it when there are fools. fools!
[20:03] <+Stacey> he can also invent stuff as he goes
[20:04] <~Dan> So he decided to show them, show them all?
[20:04] <+Stacey> exactly. and he seems to think that eventually he will be seen as the greatest. but i dont think its going to work out for him.
[20:05] <~Dan> Doesn’t sound that way.
[20:05] <+Stacey> hes not at all original, but he is fun, i think
[20:05] <~Dan> 🙂
[20:05] <+TLDrake> He’ll just have to take the Nobel society hostage and make them give him one. =p
[20:05] <+DireNinja> so does this book come with rules to play super heros too? or is that beyond the scope of this project?
[20:05] <+Stacey> i believe thats one of the scenarios i suggest
[20:06] <+Stacey> this book has no special rules, as FAE handles super heros just fine right out of the box
[20:06] <+DireNinja> oh is that right? never played it
[20:07] <+Stacey> FAE is very flexible, you dont need rules for supers, but it might help to have guidelines on supers – i think this product is a good start at that
[20:07] <+DireNinja> awesome

[20:08] <+Gemini> (hey Dan)
[20:08] <~Dan> So that’s four down… Who’s #5? 🙂
[20:09] <+Stacey> ah – Hoodwink. shes a woman who uses her powers to fight the man. Shes the jedi version of green arrow, taking on the shadowy corporate masters. your PCs might fight her one day and help her the next.
[20:10] <~Dan> So she’s psionic?
[20:11] *** Gemini has quit IRC: Connection reset by peer
[20:11] <+Stacey> yes, and shes good at clouding the minds of coporate security. she also uses her TK to make herself a master of archery. she uses her powers to make herself an Arrow/Leverage character.
[20:11] *** Gemini has joined #rpgnet
[20:11] *** ChanServ sets mode +v Gemini
[20:12] <~Dan> So she’s not actually a good shot but uses her TK to make herself one?
[20:12] <+Stacey> exactly. which is a kewl power but perhaps a subtle weakness
[20:13] <~Dan> It puts me in mind of some psionics I’ve run across who use TK to simulate super-strength.
[20:13] <~Dan> That’s very creative!
[20:13] *** Storytelleress has quit IRC: Disintegrated:
[20:13] <+Stacey> so for instance, she has a stunt called “bullseye” that gives her a +2 to quickly attack when using her TK to enhance her archery
[20:14] <~Dan> Why does she bother with archery at all, though, rather than just flinging things with TK?
[20:15] <+Stacey> i figure she can do such things. but not so well. whille an arrow in flight is always useful.
[20:15] <~Dan> Ah.
[20:17] <+Stacey> she also has a stunt that lets her use her “sneaky” approach in hand to hand combat –
[20:17] <+Stacey> so long as she doesnt do it twice in a row
[20:17] <~Dan> Well, then it wouldn’t be sneaky anymore.
[20:18] <+Stacey> exactly. but a gm would generally limit how much you can use sneaky in melee, so her stunt lets her be, well, really sneaky in a fight. its all kung fun and clouding mens minds
[20:19] <+Stacey> kung fu
[20:19] <+Stacey> though kung fun sounds good too
[20:19] <+DireNinja> i like kung fun
[20:19] <~Dan> Kung fun. That’s awesome.

[20:20] <+Stacey> kung fun would be a sort of martial arts clown who amuses you while setting you up for the fall. all hijinks and midirection
[20:21] <~Dan> Quick related aside: I’m reading the superhero game Cold Steel Wardens right now, and one skill mastery is for archery, which not only makes you a great shot, but also lets you use your archery equipment in hand-to-hand combat, and without the risk of breaking it.
[20:21] <+DireNinja> 😛
[20:21] <+Stacey> thats handy – i should hve thought of that as a stunt
[20:22] *** Alberiel has quit IRC: Disintegrated: Leaving
[20:22] <~Dan> Yeah, that’s why I brought it up. I thought you’d like that. 🙂
[20:23] <+Stacey> im making notes!
[20:24] <~Dan> Anyhoo, sorry for the tangent… I believe we’re up to #6?
[20:25] <+Stacey> hm, did we do Dead Eye? Dead Eye is the daughter of a crime family, born with amazing super-reflexes. She serves as a sort of enforcer.
[20:26] <+Stacey> she has stunts like “sniper” that give her a bonus to make advantages like “I have you in my sights”
[20:26] <+Stacey> but shes not a happy member of her family, and she might be tempted to strike out on her own, or to just prove her worth by taking over the family business

[20:28] <@Silverlion> (That’s cool Dan.)
[20:28] <~Dan> What’s the source of her powers?
[20:28] <+Stacey> she was just born that way. it turned her from an unwanted child of an unpopular union into a useful tool – but shes still bitter
[20:28] <@Silverlion> Oh I’m sorry I’m late. Are their any plans for Heroes accelerated? Does if have a world? How many villains in there? Or is it just about playing VIllains?
[20:28] <+Stacey> because super powers and bitterness are a good combo
[20:29] <+Stacey> Villains Accelerated in 8 villains ready to go
[20:29] <@Silverlion> Awesome!
[20:29] <~Dan> (Silverlion is another of your fellow game authors, in case you haven’t met. 🙂 )
[20:29] <@Silverlion> What are their power levels like?

[20:30] <+Stacey> as for other projects – the nice folks at fainting goat games are waiting to see how well this one sells!

[20:30] *** ChanServ sets mode +ao Le_Squide Le_Squide
[20:30] <@Silverlion> I plan on buying it when i am not poor broke author
[20:30] <~Dan> (Howdy, Le_Squide!)
[20:30] <+Stacey> the power levels of villains accelerated are around “marvel/dc average” and are pretty easily adjusted to fit your campaign
[20:31] <@Silverlion> I think there is big split between Marve; and DC at the high end but “average” is pretty solid
[20:31] <+GenoFoxx> so with a name like ‘dead eye’ does she go around with one eye patched but when shooting the patch opens up?
[20:32] <+Stacey> no, she goes around shooting and never missing 🙂
[20:32] <+GenoFoxx> “Or does she actually have a psychic third eye?”
[20:33] <+Stacey> hm, she doesnt, but there’s a good character there….
[20:33] <@Silverlion> Genofoxx is silly sometimes.
[20:33] <@Silverlion> We shall call him/her “The Mind’s Eye!”
[20:33] <+GenoFoxx> the Blind sniper/assasin
[20:34] <@Silverlion> So what is the most fun power you’ve written up. (Back in COH days I had Deadeye Revenant, he was undead, with covered eyes who shot people with arrows..:)
[20:34] <+Stacey> he could only shoot you depending on what you were thinking about
[20:34] <@Silverlion> Shoot you with mind arrows! Or Javelins, lets be different
[20:34] <+GenoFoxx> Wonder Boy…..with MIND BULLETS
[20:35] <+Stacey> well, he cant shoot you, just your ideas
[20:35] <+Stacey> hmm… ill have to work on that….
[20:35] <+GenoFoxx> oh, so a memetic assassin?
[20:35] <+Stacey> it could be fun!
[20:35] <@Silverlion> Yeah.
[20:37] <+Stacey> hmm, who else? Oh, we didnt say much about Xiphos – he’s one of those weapon X super ninja types you hear about these days.
[20:37] <+DireNinja> sounds like me 🙂
[20:39] <+Stacey> Xiphos is a former hero who has turned dark – but he was always sort of dark. it means he is a bad guy with friends in high places
[20:39] <+Stacey> and great stunts, like “no you did not” which allows him to concede even after he has been taken out – which is a real advantage
[20:41] <+Stacey> he also has stunt named “shock and awe” that lets him add an extra “shaken” boost when he suceeds in hand to hand combat

[20:41] <+Stacey> his high concept is “badass super ninja” which really says it all
[20:42] <+DireNinja> awesome
[20:43] <+Stacey> and i think thats all 8, actually – professor hebanon, megafauna, cold blooded, the interceptor, the mad scientist, hoodwink, dead eye, and Xiphos
[20:43] <+Stacey> just 8, so we could keep prices low and pass the savings on to you, the valued customer
[20:44] <+DireNinja> what the plans from here on out?
[20:44] <+Stacey> i should mention gorgeous art fro,m Joe Singleton
[20:44] <+DireNinja> what are*
[20:45] <+Stacey> well, we’ll see what the reception is to FAE supers – it’s not a well plowed field, really. but im hoping to do more. There really should be a guide to making your own FAE heros, for instance.
[20:46] <+DireNinja> do you plan on expanding past supers?
[20:46] <+DireNinja> like making books of other protagonsts in the same way
[20:48] <+Stacey> well, fainting goat games and i have no solid plans as yet – but id love to write up more some settings for FAE. for instance, theres no good fantasy caveman adventures setting for FAE, which is just a crime
[20:49] <~Dan> Is there an assumed setting behind Villains Accelerated?
[20:50] <+Stacey> there is not an assumed setting, but i do try to mention the ways the villains can interact. For isntance, Westerly and Hebanon would make excellent rivalss, and they both might hire megafauna or the
[20:50] <+Stacey> interceptor
[20:51] <+DireNinja> i think you should expand to a developed setting and have heroes too, the world needs more settings
[20:51] <+Stacey> and cold-blooded and dead eye could easily find themselves fighting over control of the same city (with the heroes caught in between, hopefully)
[20:51] <+DireNinja> more good settings*
[20:51] <+Stacey> i am forced to agree, we need more good settings
[20:51] <@Silverlion> Yes you do..:D
[20:52] <+Songtress> Settings for?
[20:52] <~Dan> Well, let me rephrase: Are there any setting elements assumed by the book? For example, is it based on a setting in which superpowers come from multiple sources?
[20:53] <+Stacey> ah – i would say that the book assumes a very generic supers setting, with multiple origins – though it makes that assumption weakly, since we wanted the book to be broadly useful
[20:54] <+Stacey> and of course, the book assume you have fate Accelerated, but there is an online SRD for that
[20:55] <~Dan> Is there? I didn’t know that. Cool.
[20:55] <+Stacey> i like to think that the villain write ups would help anyone to set up a FAE supers campaign
[20:56] <+Stacey> but i like to think stuff
[20:56] <~Dan> Oh, before I forget, would you like to post a link?
[20:57] <+Stacey> ah, that might be beyond my limited keyboard skills
[20:57] <~Dan> Oh? Then allow me!

[20:59] <+DireNinja> it looked like fun so I had to join in
[20:59] <~Dan> 😀
[20:59] <+Stacey> you can do amazing things with this modern stuff, if you can remember all the little codes
[20:59] <+Stacey> i thank you all for helping me with digital modernity
[21:00] <~Dan> Please feel free to hang out with us as long as you like, Stacey, but before I log the “official” chat log, is there anything else you’d like to add?
[21:00] <+Stacey> the truth is, i am a mac person on a borrowed chromebook. it doesnt even have a real hard drive, dont ask me how.
[21:00] <+Stacey> i just want to thank everyone for this fun chat, and all the great questions. please buy the book, its cheap.
[21:00] <+Stacey> done
[21:01] <+DireNinja> are there physical copies available?
[21:02] <+Stacey> i believe it is just digital at this time. people can read it on those tablet thingies or a laptop borrowed from their partner, like i do.
[21:02] <+Stacey> and im always available on the rpgnet forums as Princess Stacey.
