Sagas of the Icelanders

More #artsandcrafts  today at IGRC headquarters. Finally producing the gorgeous Clarissa Baut Stetson edit AND Jason Morningstar SotI playbooks. These miiiight get the dry-erase treatment, dunno, that’s a lot of plastic to haul around and a lot of pens to provide.

Mars 244

It’s #artsandcrafts day at the IGRC and I’m feeling very accomplished. Finished up production of Rachel E.S. Walton​​’s Mars 244: the Liberation of Sisyphus just in time for the weekend. I even broke out the 1/4″ corner rounder to get rid of all the sharp laminated corners. Because bleed is only fun when it’s make-believe.

It’s looking good, Rachel!

Dinosaur for scale.

Mutant: Genlab Alpha

Animal cards are laminated, cut, and looking pretty sweet. And then I remember there’s a non-trivial chance my MGA table won’t even fill up this weekend.

Well whatever, now I have them. (And duh, I’m already wishing I’d included one more thing.)

Oh! I almost forgot: I just recently realized there must be legal-sized laminating pouches (duh). So I’m thinking about how to make folding, reuseable PbtA playbooks.

It’s the folding I’m trying to solve now. Thinking about cutting the printed sheet into its thirds, tacking them to the inside of the pouch with a dot of glue stick about 1mm apart from each other, then maybe lightly scoring the outside with a craft knife. Anyone try this?

The gluestick tack is legit killer tech if you’re in the laminating machine mafia. Which, by the way, keep your eyes open for that once-a-year Amazon sale where you can get one for like $20.
