Game Design: Other Borders - New for DramaSystem

There are borders everyone sees: the looming fence with its sporadic observation platforms, the tags claiming this block or that in the name of a local gang or drug cartel, and the wrought-iron fences surrounding gated communities.

There are borders that are real only in our minds, like the imaginary lines that divide country from country, or one race from another.

But in this little southwestern town, another border reveals itself to those gifted with the power to see it: the veil between the worlds. Even today, the old ways of magic are still taught; spells, curses, visions and transformations are still practiced, and opposing clans are locked in a daily battle that no policia would ever understand.

Join the RPGs & Storygames Group on Goodreads.com

There's a new group on Goodreads.com, devoted to RPGs & Storygames. This group discusses books, rules and play aides written for GMs and Players of tabletop roleplaying games. We happily straddle the blurry line between RPG designers and GMs, so you don't have to be "pro" to join, but you do have to have an interest in writing or reading RPG rules.

DayTrippers GameMasters Guide Reviewed by Keith Mageau

"This is a book I would recommend to any GM that wants to cultivate great ideas and find useful suggestions on how to further develop their GM skills."

Keith Mageau has written an in-depth review of the DayTrippers GameMasters Guide on the RollingBoxcars blog. He dives in and summarizes the main contents of each section of the book, letting you know what you will find there, which I think is very useful for any prospective Player or GM when considering a new system.

In this 3+ hour session via Google Hangout, characters played by Keith Mageau, Tesla Ranger and Lloyd Gyan risk their fictional lives, appearing in the top-rated surreality show of 2115: HyperSurvive!
