: Pirate Jenny is under way! posted by Emily
There will be a new group in town at GenCon Indy this year. In the tradition of PlayCollective and Design Matters, six gaming companies and a gang of enthusiastic gamers will hit the decks as Pirate Jenny in August. It's a great crew, though some folks will be taking part remotely. Curse this downturn in the economy! Here's the personae and games that we'll have in tow:
Emily Care Boss of Black and Green Games, with Sign in Stranger, first human colony on an alien world, and RPG = Role Playing Girl, a zine about women and gaming.
Julia Bond Ellingboe of Stone Baby Games, with Tales of the Fisherman's Wife, a game of demons, flirtation and temptation.
Anna Kreider of Tasty Bacon Games, with Thou Art but a Warrrior, a Polaris Mod, and her fantastic original art.
Danielle Lewon of Cream Alien Games, with Kagematsu, a game of samurai, honor, desperation and love.
Kat and Michael S. Miller, of Incarnadine Press, with Serial Homicide Unit, the killer is out on the streets tonight.
Michelle Mishko, expert GM and cat wrangler, kicking ass and taking names.
Terry Hope Romero, long-time gamer and vegan cook extraordinaire, to demo and raise a ruckus.
Elizabeth Shoemaker of Two Scooters Press, with Homecoming, one soldier's story.
Plus of course, the older games of all these folks. It's a grand thing to see so many games from women! A sign of the times.
