[19:31] <+Zoltan> Well, hello. my name is Zoltan Lečei and I’m a part of The Games Collective, a small game design team from Croatia
[19:33] <+Zoltan> In 2015 we successfully Kickstarted a game called Awaken – a dark fantasy rpg game with Slavic and Mediterranean influences
[19:34] <+Zoltan> In the meantime the game has been translated to Italian, and it’s in a process of preparation for other languages too
[19:34] <+Zoltan> Now we’re back on Kickstarter with a sourcebook called Awaken: The Blood of Salvora – it’s kind of a campaign setting sourcebook for the Awaken
[19:36] <+Zoltan> In the new book, we’re exploring the cities in their details, various nations, new character options, new antagonists, items, various new powers etc.
[19:36] <+Zoltan> And now I’m here to present the game and talk a little more about the game and our work
[19:38] <+TerriCohlene> I’m Terri Cohlene. Children’s book author, and now, Game Designer!
[19:38] <+TerriCohlene> Together, we created, Best Friends Forever! (BFF!)

[08:06] <+AoC_Kristofer> Yes! My Name Is Kristofer Stenskog, and i run a small Game Development Company in sweden. We usualy do Core-loops and Narrative for mobile games as consultants, but we want the company to grow into a boardgame/RPG developer. Mostly because we are serious board & RPG nerds. Right now we have a kickstarter online for our first own RPG, agents of Concordia.
[08:07] <+AoC_Kristofer> The game is a Fantasy / Mystery game about multiverse-travelling agents in the 60’s, with alot of action, adventure and mysticism.
[19:32] <+AaronReed> Great– thanks for the invite and happy to be here. 🙂 So I’ve been a game designer off and on for about fifteen years now, mostly doing indie and digital games. I did a lot of work in the “interactive fiction” world writing text adventures. I wrote what was at one point the longest text adventure ever (no longer true)!
[19:33] <+AaronReed> I’ve also always been a roleplayer, and for the last 5-6 years was working on a PhD on interactive narrative. I started getting really back into indie roleplaying partly as research but also to get away from screeeeens…
[19:33] <+AaronReed> So I’m Kickstarting my first published tabletop game, Archives of the Sky, and it actually just hit its funding goal this morning (woohoo!) So that’s exciting.
[19:34] <+AaronReed> Would love to talk about the game, my weird path through digital games and academia to get here, or anything else folks are curious about. 🙂
[19:35] <+Klynnweldon> Hi, my name is Katie Weldon and I am a writer for Endless Realms, a new tabletop RPG with an awesome Kickstarter campaign going on right now! I have been working with Kirsty and the development team for over a year now I believe, and I work mostly on the lore side of things. Currently, I am writing short stories set in our universe.
[19:36] <+Sherman> I’m Sherman Tommy, and I’m the Head Developer for Endless Realms. I largely handle mechanics and monsters and making sure they match up with the lore.
[19:36] <+Klynnweldon> I can answer questions on anything related to the world, but ask Sherman questions related to mechanics and numbers!
[19:37] <+andrewjlucas> I’m Andrew J Lucas and I’m writing one of the sourcebooks/adventure books and a short story for Endless Realms. (also I can;t pell :))
