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!

System Neutral is a project where we talk to GMs and players of other APs about our favorite game systems to discuss what we like, love, and could do without. 

We're joined on this episode by Angela from Fandible, and GM of SoloShot! We talk about Fantasy Flight's (now discontinued) Force and Destiny system. We recorded this in November of 2019, so please ignore anything we say about buying the system, or lack of discussion of Rise of Starwalker.

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

This week we had the chance to chat with Pat Edwards of Apotheosis Studios about his project, The Red Opera. This 5e campaign and setting book is based on DiAmorte's heavy metal album of the same name, and builds a world of warlocks for your high level party to explore. We chatted about the campaign, the inspiration, and the bad choices your party can make when making deals with patrons. 

The Red Opera will be running through October 1, 2020, and you can find it on Kickstarter now!

You should also check out Pat's book Space Tripping, his podcast Let's Rewatch, or catch him streaming 5e on Geekly Inc's Happy Hell Hour on Tuesdays at 2 PM EST

Every opportunity we've had to play this amazing game has been an incredible amount of fun. Like in Numenera, it's a place where we find our imaginations going wild, and what better place to do that then under the sea. We were lucky to have one of the game's creators run it for us! Descent Into Midnight is coming to Kickstarter on February 15, 2020, so be sure to be there! You can check out the pre-launch page here!

A community of undersea creatures must deal with the complicated nature of the home they have chosen for themselves and their place as part of a greater whole.
