I met so many amazing people at BBC whom I would not have met if y'all hadn't gone out of your way to create space for them. And of course it was an incredibly gender-diverse and queer space as well!

I just want to add that as a gamer who does not identify as a PoC, the presence of such a diverse crowd at the con made my own experience much richer as well. Diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and talentd makes things better for everyone.

No, thank you for explaining! I'll add that often complains that there isn't enough formal social combat in games - and having looked over the materials you've released so far, we're both excited to play a game where what you say and how you say it matters so deeply.

It's really interesting to see a PbtA game that feels like an endless journey rather than hopping from crisis to crisis as the players move towards a possible brighter future or spiral down into death 😀

And it sounds like you made things the way they are to give the GM and players a push, but aren't explicitly spelling that out; you're letting them come to their own interpretation of what that ultimately means. Which is cool!

It also feels like "summer" and "winter" (or "free" or "careful") does intentionally evoke specific moods. Like, things will be tighter and more scarce in Winter. Different things might be of value. The GM might pose different external challenges in one vs the other...

I think it does answer the question! And because the bonuses and penalties can change over time, the next summer might not be the same as the current summer. That said...

I played enough D&D that I don't need any more experience 😛

It's funny because while the second bit almost seems obvious now, it was a huge revelation when it was first proposed (on the Forge?) years ago.

I feel like, enough people are asking this question post BBC that if we just tell everyone "go here, sign up, here's where game design discussion is going to happen", that might be enough.

(i.e. is there specific guidance for how to steer the narrative when a character or location is in one or the other?)

I've backed this, but I'm curious about something, since I didn't have a chance to play at BBC... I assume that Summer/Winter (or Free/Careful) is more than just pure color, but it's not obvious how from the playbooks. Do you mind granting us a little more understanding?

The reason why stands out to me and why it’s so important is because it makes spaces for PoCs. This year, there was the PoC Dinner as well as the PoC Meet and Greet. I met so many talented people who need to get recognized for their work.
