The As If Collective is a network of roleplayers, gamers, GMs, game designers, artists and neophiles interested in exploring and contributing to experimental applications of narrative engineering.
Every month I do 2-4 Releases: each is a minigame, a subsystem, an adventure, a table/chart, a form/sheet, or a web-based tool which will be of interest to Roleplayers, Storygamers and Interactive Fictioneers. As a member of the Collective, you get early access to all of these works in both draft and final form, with the added knowledge that you helped make them happen.
Are you a Remember Tomorrow player? You might want to grab a copy of the interactive character and faction sheets below. They're all in one dynamic PDF form, so you can fill them out online or email them to your fellow players.

The site began as an OpenCart installation, but we fixed that by migrating the database to Drupal 7 and implementing a suitable theme.

On October 21st, DayTrippers designer/author Tod Foley (that's me!) was the guest on the Legends of Tabletop podcast. The conversation included some of the "hybrid" techniques used in the game, including the YES/NO/AND/BUT action resolution system, progressive character generation, and the stance of the DayTrippers GM midway between trad and narrativism. Also discussed: the game's influences, from Star Trek and Car Wars and Itras By to Kung Fu and Buckaroo Banzai and Heavy Metal magazine.
It's official - the DayTrippers website now takes up virtual space on the interwebs. Right now it's basically a listing of all books and supplemental products available in the line, but coming soon - downloads, hacks, updates, maybe even a forum. Check it out, roleplayers!
