One of the absolute best parts of writing is not only getting to see that work out in the world, but it’s seeing how people engage with it. Sometimes, too, that work is meant for a broader kind of engagement.
Like, oh, say when that work is published as part of tie-in material for an RPG. Allowing it to have life beyond just the story itself, as content and characters and history players can incorporate into their own campaigns, or use as inspiration. Specifically, in this case, as part of Nisaba Journal Issue 1‘s eight stories told across Green Ronin’s Blue Rose, Mutants & Masterminds, and Freeport settings!
My own contribution to the volume is a queer MI/trauma/recovery/ghosts/love story (i.e. super on brand) Blue Rose tale: “In That Fire, All the Voices of Your Dead.”
The title of which is also super on brand.
That book’s got some excellent stories from some names you’ll know, and others that may be new to you. If you’re not sure if you’ll like the volume, you can preview it at the link, and read through a fair bit of my story as part of said preview.
For my part, I’ve been playing, creating my own content, and DM/GMing in a variety of settings and systems for a little over a couple decades now, so getting to create something published as part of a roleplaying setting directly is kind of living the dream a little. :)
And, yes, there’s more coming on that front here and there. So that dream just keeps rolling for me.
And for you? If you’re familiar with the shape and nature of Green Ronin’s roleplaying settings, great! They’re awesome sandboxes to play in. If you’re not, this is a fantastic time, and way, to get your feet wet. So go buy a copy! Incorporate the stories and characters into your own campaigns if you like! Build out your worlds, or run in entirely different directions altogether with what you find! Go make a thing!
The point is this: be inspired to make something. To build. To create your own worlds.
Go play. :D
