Improv for Gamers

Feb 13, 2012
ImprovForGamersImprov theater teaches many skills that can make your game rock: collaboration, embracing failure, and generally feeling comfortable looking stupid. Yet, there is a divide to cross to get the gamer onto the stage. So Big Bad Con has brought the mountain to Mohammed. Come to the workshop and you're going to explore dynamic characters, collaborative scene-building, and the success/complication model as it applies to role-playing games.

Big Bad Con 2011...in review

Nov 9, 2011
Phew, just after Big Bad Con I was booked to run an Apocalypse Galactica game (re-skinning Apocalypse World to Battlestar Galactica), which I didn't start working on till after Big Bad Con. Since then I've been catching up on old Actual Play reports, trying to get Narrative Control back in action, and planning the Improv For Gamer events in January. Phew.

Doing Good!

Oct 25, 2011
The Wolf has rounded up all the bottles and cans of food as well as cold hard cash to make donations across the board. For the Alameda County Community Food bay we raised 230lbs of food, enough for 176 meals. For Doctors Without Borders we raised $505, the donation placed today!

Oct 11, 2011
If you missed getting a t-shirt at the con, here's another chance to do it. Cut off date is 10/16, as I'll be ordering the shirts (so I can get them out to everyone on time) after that.
