Stumping for Storium

If there's anything like a guiding philosophy here at Atlas Games, it's "Tell More Stories". In fact, it's virtually impossible to play an Atlas game without talking, and most of them get better the more into storytelling the players are.
So we're delighted to see the new online game-playing platform Storium enjoying success on Kickstarter. Storium is designed to give players interactive tools to create exciting, collaborative stories--it's like a digital tabletop, around which your gaming group can enjoy roleplaying games in an engaging setting. It also supports both real-time and asynchronous online play, a flexibility that combines the best of MMO/MU* and PBP/PBEM traditions.
Storium can boast some excellent folks on the project, including Will Hindmarch, who wrote for Feng Shui and our Penumbra d20 line. A lot of big-name authors are contributing stretch goal worlds, too: Delilah S. Dawson, Chuck Wendig, Saladin Ahmed, Kenneth Hite, and Mur Lafferty, just to mention a few. And Atlas' own Cam and Jess Banks have played in beta versions of the site; they'll extol its virtues to anyone who'll listen.
There will always be a way to play for free on Storium, but Kickstarter backers get access to the beta site and options to play in more games. The success of the crowdfunding campaign will also help unlock more worlds for players to explore, so now's a great time to join this great new storytelling platform!

TableTop Triumphs and Tragedies

A trio of TableTop triumphs and tragedies on the eve of International TableTop Day:

These are your last few hours to submit a Terrible TableTop Tragedy to our TableTop Gloom contest. Just describe the very worst thing that could happen on International TableTop Day and you could be one of 20 winners of a set of TableTop Gloom cards.

Minnesotans looking for a TableTop Day home should make their way to Source Comics & Games in Roseville, where Atlas Games staffers Jess and Cam Banks will be demoing Gloom and engaging in all manner of other game-related merriment.

Those of you who're lucky enough to have tickets to the sold-out official Geek & Sundry Los Angeles TableTop day event are in for a surprise: We've arranged with G&S to delight every attendee with a free copy of our award-winning Pieces of Eight, a pirate ship combat game played with minted metal coins. (Looking to pick up some sets of your own? We're running a special Pieces of Eight promotion for a limited time.)
