Aser and Megan were excited to have the chance to talk to Todd Crapper about his kickstarter for Vision Layers, and what it means for the future of RPG PDF accessibility. Vision Layers adds layers to PDFs to allow for the user to change the font, adjust colors, and make the document more screen reader friendly, while still only releasing one file.  Todd has teamed up with a huge variety of publishers for an initial release; with Timewatch from Pelgrane, CAPERS from Nerd Burger Games, Fate Condensed from Evil Hat, and Ninja Crusade from Third Eye Games already unlocked. 

Please give this kickstarter a look and your support to show publishers that there is an interest in accessibility! We have really high hopes of seeing this method used in all RPG books in the future. 

Vision Layers is running until December 12!

Aser, Jonn, and Megan chatted with Dr. Joseph Carr about his new game, Sengai Jidai: The Age of Thousand Realities! This game is inspired by the Sengoku period of Japanese history, It uses Fate, one of our favorite systems, to bring in a fractured reality, which means you're just as likely to battle a cyborg as you are a kaiju. 

Sengai Jidai is live now on Kickstarter!

You can read more on the Sengai Jidai blog. Also check out Joseph's other adventures: The Adventure of Salt and Sand, The Adventure of The Encounter at Farside, and Sidetrek: Mountain Locusts

Survival of the Able is a new game on Kickstarter that puts disabled characters front and center. We were able to sit down with the creator, Jacob Wood to discuss the game, it's inspiration, and how disability plays a key role in the setting. 

"In Survival of the Able you’re a person with a disability living in a European almshouse when the Black Death arrives. Little is known about where the plague originated or how to stop it, but those who die from it are rising again—and they’re hungry for flesh. Since everyone else has succumbed to the plague, it’s up to a handful of you to make your way out of town and away to safety. You may not be the biggest, the strongest, or the fittest, but you're determined to survive."

You can find more from Jacob at Accessible Games or on Twitter

A team of mercenaries is dispatched to an island to destroy an experimental weapon before it can fall into enemy hands. It seems, however, that there is more then just enemy marines to fear at this abandoned navy base.

The Nuadan Chronicles is currently on Kickstarter! Please head over and check out this great game before the kickstarter ends on October 25th. We really enjoyed the new take on levels of success and failure, and how even a bad dice roll wasn't the end of the world if you were especially skilled at a task. The setting is great, and we love the huge amount of diversity in the characters and artwork. You can also find Broken Dice on Twittter or visit their website to follow their progress.

It’s time for Joker Squadron’s first combat mission. But when the plucky rebels drop out of hyperspace, they’ll find themselves short one squadron commander and an overabundance of Imperials. Luckily, there are other ships hanging around in the middle of nowhere trading fire with the baddies, and they may be the key to taking a big chunk out of the Empire’s grip on the sector.

This year at GenCon, Megan and Aser were on a panel about creating your own AP podcast! All of our advice was recorded for posterity, and you can hear all of our advice here. If you are interested in putting your toe in the water of podcasting, join our Discord for more information about the Community Feed TRF is working on beginning where we will host your recorded games!
 
Actual play podcasts, collectively the winner of the Diana Jones Award for Excellence in Gaming 2018, have taken the RPG world by storm. And with their relatively low barrier to entry, they’re a popular way for gamers to share their stories with the world. In this panel, Rhi (The Magpies Podcast), Paulomi (Iron Hides), Megan T. (The Amber Clave), Aser (The Redacted Files), and Megan S. (Tabletop Potluck) will cover topics ranging from technical skills, narrative planning, podcast management, hidden costs, and both challenges and rewards of running your own show.

Standing forgotten on the Oregon coast, a beacon for lost sailors helps conceal a town’s secrets, and an insidious evil. The Widow’s Peak Lighthouse has been a landmark for travelers near the Witch’s Cauldron State Natural Area for nearly 150 years. Closed to the public, it’s been the source of many local legends. Recently it went up for sale, and the bidding between the locals and a reclusive millionaire was vicious. However, money won out over local interests, and members of the party have been hired to help with the restoration and study of the lighthouse. As they work to restore the building, they find more and more things that should not be.
