Let’s talk about dice. Less about the mechanical use of them in Coyote & Crow and more about the physical objects. Specifically, I want to talk about accessibility, availability, prices, and our company goals. This is a bit of a deep dive so content warning for deep level nerdery.
It’s been a busy month! I hope you’re all well, safe, and vaccinated. There are a ton of things going on over here at Coyote & Crow. Let’s jump into news about the core rule book development first, then we’ll talk about other C&C products, drop a big announcement, and lastly get into some details on Gifts and Burdens, my favorite game mechanic within Coyote & Crow.
Things are moving at a break neck pace, folks. There’s so much happening that it’s hard for me to summarize it all while also conveying how cool and exciting each of these things is. So, I’m splitting this up into two parts really. We’ll talk about the where we’re at with production of everything related to the Kickstarter and other upcoming news. Then we’ll jump in to more game development discussion.
But first! A quick note! We’ve locked down current orders. Don’t worry, you can still pre-order or make late pledges through BackerKit and we haven’t locked down addresses yet. We’ll do that much later. So if you’re moving or not sure yet where you need your personal book shipped to, you have plenty of time. Also, please fill out your surveys if you haven’t yet. There are still around 1500 of you out there. Don’t make me wag my finger.
Hey folks! This is going to be an ongoing post where I’ll list currently available opportunities to work with the Coyote & Crow team and help us publish great games and content. A few things I want to cover right out of the gate that are relevant to all current and future positions:
Native Americans/First Nations folks of all experience levels are encouraged to apply for any/all positions they feel they’re qualified for.
Non-Natives are welcome to apply for any positions that aren’t called out as Native only positions.
We pay at least competitive rates for the hobby game industry and we strive to pay better than the average.
All positions are remote/work from home.
Please pay close attention to the application process (ignoring it will move you to the bottom of the list).
We prefer folks working within the United States but will consider applicants outside of the US, unless otherwise specified.
This weekend has seen some big stuff go down. Our surveys are going out. I’ve finally said goodbye to my day job, which was a tremendous shift for me. And in terms of Coyote & Crow, I’m finally dialing in what we’re internally referring to as the third draft of the game. Next is going to be a round of play testing and fine tuning of rules, some re-writes and minor additions, and the start of a whole lot of art direction.
Hey folks, this post will be an ongoing list of places where Coyote and Crow is mentioned in some form other in media. From just a nod, to an interview, review, podcast, whatever. Basically, any place you can learn more about our game and our team outside of Coyote and Crow’s own channels. We’ll work to update this continuously as more media comes in!
If you are a writer/reviewer/media outlet and would like to do something with Coyote and Crow, please contact us through this site.
We’re also going to have a separate post that will detail all of the places you can read or hear more about the game through other sources (podcasts, interviews, etc). We’ll update that post with new links as they become available.
