Welcome, LaTia!

It’s been a busy and fast-paced week, and we have lots of cool things to be excited about. But at the top of the list, without question, is the addition of LaTia Jacquise to the MCG Team! LaTia joins us as our new Community Relations Coordinator, which, in a nutshell, means she’s now stepping in to wrangle our social media, the Asset Team, Cypher Play, retailer relations, streaming, PR, and our online community, while also helping out with cons and trade shows, customer service and fulfillment, marketing plans and product launches, and more—that’s quite a big nutshell!

If you get a chance, drop by the MCG Facebook page to say hi, or give LaTia a wave on Twitter.

We Can Be Heroes . . .

Yes—that’s exactly what you think it is: a big hardcover along the lines of The Stars Are FireGodforsakenStay Alive!, and We Are All Mad Here, this time covering superheroes! Like those titles, Claim the Sky will tackle its genre both widely and deeply, enabling all styles of superhero play—from your favorite comics to modern blockbusters, and everything in between or beyond. It also includes the Boundless campaign setting.

But that’s not all. The Heroes of the Cypher System Kickstarter campaign will also feature First Responders, which builds on the rules in Claim the Sky with a focus on more earth-bound heroes. First Responders is about saving lives amid natural disasters, man-made cataclysms, pandemics, or major crises of any sort, and will present rules, options, gear, and more for heroes inspired by the real world to take on challenges and dangers on a scale far beyond any single monster or villian.

The campaign launches soon! You can sign up to be notified when it goes live right here:
