Weekly Assembly: Epic Simplicity and Kickstarter

This weekend, Nevermet Press closed up shop. While it’s probably temporary, it’s still sad to hear about.

In somewhat related news, we’re planning on 2 more Weekly Assembly posts before discontinuing the current format. We’ll still be finding cool links and adding them to our searchable RPG Links database, but the deadline of producing the newsletter is starting to suck the fun out of the process.

But for now, on with this week’s links!

  • Crippled by Knowledge at Take On Rules: Derailing game prep by improving the process like a good code developer. It’s an interesting angle on creativity and open mode vs. closed mode.
