[20:04] <+NathanRMaher> Players take on the role of divergents, humans who are beyond humans through either skill or supernatural ability. People can play as the Blessed, Common Folk, ESPers, Exemplars, Faekin, Magi and Zoonthropes.

[19:06] <+MikeStewart> cast Save or Die, and occasionally refers to himself in the third person.
[19:08] <+MikeStewart> Currently I have written a game called Victorious to be published by Troll Lord Games. It’s a steampunk role-playing game with the addition of masked heroes and villains referred to as “SuperMankind” in the literary Victorian era.
[19:04] <+Blackstone> Hello everyone – I’m the lead designer for Mystos: The Role Playing Game. This is Blackstone Entertainment, Inc’s first published tabletop game, and we’re really excited to talk to you about it.
[22:04] <+JSerembe> I am John Serembe – my game is the Order of the Link, a tabletop RPG. I’ve been using it for about 35 years and thought it would be fun to throw it out there.
[19:04] <+LoremasterRyan> Well alright! I’m Ryan Schoon, I’m the lead writer for the game Edara: A Steampunk Renaissance and the follow up that is now on Kickstarter, The Traveler’s Guide to Edara. I have been freelancing in the RPG industry for a few years and have worked on several independent games by companies like Green Ronin and Third Eye Games
[19:05] <+LoremasterRyan> I bring that amount of writing experience to the Traveler’s Guide to Edara, which is full of awesome setting information. (done)
[19:06] <+DaveMattingly> I’m Dave Mattingly, president of BlackWyrm Games.
[19:06] <+DaveMattingly> We publish gaming supplements and settings, plus other stuff.
[19:06] <+DaveMattingly> At the moment, we’re kickstarting Michael Surbrook’s Larger Than Life.
[19:04] <+Jimbozig> Alright, well I’m Jim and my game is Strike! This is my first foray into game publishing, and my first kickstarter.
[19:05] <+Jimbozig> Strike is an RPG with the core idea of getting interesting and varied outcomes with lots of choices, but without having a ton of rules.
[19:06] <+Jimbozig> It’s got tactical combat influenced strongly by D&D4e, but with a lot of adjustments to make things run faster and have less overhead.
[19:07] <+Jimbozig> The non-combat system is most similar to Mouse Guard, although it’s quite different in a number of ways, too. A skill roll is just 1d6 every time to get one of 5 results.
[19:08] <+Jimbozig> The goal, for me, was to take my favourite gaming experiences and make a system that can give me those as simply as possible.
[19:14] <~Dan> When you’re ready, Zach, please introduce yourself and your movie. 🙂
[19:14] <+ZachAmundson> No problem…..my name is Zach Amundson….I am the Co-Writer and Co-Director of “Dwarves of Demrel”
[19:15] *** Lassek has quit IRC: Connection reset by peer
[19:15] <+ZachAmundson> It realistic fantasy piece….taking place completely inside a mine…that tells the story of three Dwarven miners as they try to escape a mine collapse
[19:17] <+ZachAmundson> They are imprisoned inside the mine….so the story explores their attempts at escape…their bouts with hopelessness and despair…and in general the collaboration and camaraderie between the dwarves
[20:04] <+RASalvatore> Oh, I have to give a speech?
[20:04] <+RASalvatore> okay, well, I’m Bob Salvatore…I’ve been writing fantasy novels for about 33 years now…
[20:05] <+RASalvatore> Wrote my first one in 1982, but I didn’t get published until 1988. That was “The Crystal Shard,” where I introduced Drizzt.
[20:05] <+RASalvatore> It’s been an insane ride ever since.
[20:05] <+RASalvatore> last year, i did my first kickstarter, a tabletop RPG based on my DemonWars world (DemonWars: Reformation).
[20:06] <+RASalvatore> It’s a throwback type of RPG, where mental agility and improvisation plays a big role – like 1st Edition D&D, but with an active defense system.
[20:06] <+RASalvatore> many choices, all the time.
[19:04] <+Ken_Spencer> I am Ken Spencer, author of Chaosium’s Blood Tide, a BRP supplement of pirates, voudou, and stranger things. You might be more familiar with my work for Cubicle 7 as line developer and lead writer for Rocket Age, and contributor to WW Cthulhu.
