Hi, my name is Ben and I’m an Indie RPG publisher. Truth is, I have a new project coming out in line with Argyle & Crew. It’s called the Little Book of Big Ideas. I want to know if you want to be a part of it.
Argyle & Crew details are at the link above – but the essence is it’s a sock puppet based RPG. A gateway game for kids. A tool for educators and therapists. A great pick up game at conventions.
The Little Book of Big Ideas is a compilation of scenarios for the game that I’m putting together. A scenario can be anywhere from 1 to 6 pages long. I’m looking for scenario authors. You’ll get your name up in lights (so to speak), get in on a neat project, oh and you’ll help get underage sex workers in the US the counseling and safe environment they need.
What do you get out of it? You’ll have a chance to author one or more scenarios for Argyle & Crew. That means you’ll be listed among the authors for this book. I’ll take care of editing, supplying images (unless you also happen to be an artist), layout and putting the whole thing together. You’ll also get a free digital copy of Argyle & Crew if you don’t already have one, so you can see how the game works and how scenarios are constructed. Add to that a digital copy of the Little Book of Big Ideas when it’s published and that’s your package.
What do I get out of it? More content than I could possible produce on my own. I’ll also be putting it up at DriveThruRPG/RPGNow for somewhere between $0.99 and $2.99 depending on how big the book is. So what about any money that I make off of this? Here’s what will happen.
First, DTRPG takes their 30% cut for being my digital distributor. Second, I take 25% of the remaining money and once a month send it directly to The Wayne Foundation (just like I do with the original Argyle & Crew book). What’s left over then goes to keeping this site running, purchasing art for use in this and future projects and allowing me to do stuff like give away books and PDFs.
This book will be Creative Commons licensed, which means it can be shared, remixed and hacked with no legal repercussions.
Sound interesting? Drop me a line and let me know what you can do. Artists, writers, bloggers, gamers and dreamers welcome!
