    “cross-dressers, transexuals, [and such]”

    Because, y’know, no actual *players* are themselves women. Sheesh.

  2. Yehuda Says:

    Ah-yup. Maybe Hex Games simply thinks that no women play their games.

    Uh, this concept has been done before, and with more class…

    RPG visionary/gadfly Ron Edwards wrote “Trollbabes” where all the PCs are warrior women. It’s an RPG with a rulebook that’s a good read, bases gameplay around minimal stats that force balanced characters, and has Edwards’ focus on strong storytelling.

    Hi, Leighton from Hex Games here. Thanks for mentioning Herland! We’ll be releasing it later this month. It’s a well-written setting, a 1984-style future dystopia, and I hope people check it out.

    Now that you mention it, that crossdressing line from the marketing copy does sound strange. It’s meant to be tongue in cheek, and I thought that came across in context. Maybe not. I definitely don’t want to imply that no women play our games. We have quite a few female fans, which is one of the reasons I’m excited about releasing this women-centric book.

    Hope that clears things up. When we release the actual PDF, I’ll write new marketing copy that will, hopefully, give a better sense of what the book’s about.
