The Reckoners board game + Updates
Adam here. In this week’s new Writing Excuses episode, What Writers Get Wrong, with Aliette de Bodard, Dan, Mary, Aliette, and Howard discuss “What writers get wrong.” This year the third-week episodes will follow this theme and each of the episodes will feature an expert guest who will help us understand what writers get wrong about something in which they have expertise.
Aliette de Bodard will be co-hosting several of these week-three episodes, but this week her role is “subject matter expert.” She has several fields of expertise, and among the hats she expertly wears which writers often fail to correctly describe is a hat labeled “motherhood” (note: not an actual hat.)
Many of you may have already seen Brandon’s post yesterday regarding the board game based on his Reckoners books from Nauvoo Games, but if you haven’t, here is the game trailer which will begin its Kickstarter on February 13.
If you want a bit more detail about the game, you can watch the game overview with the design prototype.
There will be a special post tomorrow from Arcturus XR. The VR company that produced “Escape the Shattered Plains VR Experience” which is set to release next month, so keep your eyes open for that.
The Twitter Archive for January is up to date.
This week’s featured cosplay is of Shallan by Yashuntafun.
