I have noticed that some folks tend to slip into "expected" gender roles a fair bit, and I just wanted to remind everyone to use inclusionary language around gender. We do have a number of non-binary and gender non-conforming people so let's make sure we're using neutral and inclusive language! Just some thoughts going forward, I know none of us are used to historical games where trans folk can move about freely, and we aren't super experienced with ensuring these things are inclusive.

Hi all! I run a weekly livestream interview show for Larpers and role players, and this Tuesday I have on Athena and some of the other writers to talk about their world building process, the inspirations for this game, and more! If any of you are interested in checking that out, it’s at 8:00 pm eastern at Twitch.tv/MakeBelieveLive Members of the Discord can submit questions to the guests beforehand, and if you are on Twitter and want to get the going live notifications, the @ is MakeBelieveInfo Super looking forward to picking their brains! -Wren

I have been giving some thought to the letter writing logistics. I know I, and several others are excited to play with Wax Seals, but I also know that the letters will be opened by staff and forwarded. So I’m trying to think of a way to utilize a wax seal while still giving the staff a way to open it. Maybe I will do an envelope in an envelope with the bottom slit open? Anyone have thoughts?

Hey there, Gosh this sort of historical game would usually give me a ton of pause after my experiences with the steampunk community. I think what the game runners are doing here is really fun and I am looking forward to it, but of course, I definitely want to get a feel for if you know, folks like me are here! Figured I would be brave and take the first step because gosh do I not enjoy being in a sea of cis-het folks who look down on me because my queerness is "not historically accurate." So hey, I am trans and panromantic, and on the Ace spectrum. So... hey. Where are my fellow gendernonconforming gays at?
