Doikayt: A Jewish TTRPG Anthology (Preorder)

I want to tell you about this new Jewish tabletop roleplaying  (TTRPG) anthology that I was recently honored to join. My essay is part of the forward and was written to expand the work to include more Sephardi (in my case, Yemenite) voices. I was able to draw on both my Ashkenazi and Yemenite experience and I'm delighted to integrate my work with so many Jewish creatives. 

From their site:

"Doikayt is an anthology of short tabletop roleplaying games about Judaism or Jewish themes, written and illustrated by Jews. It was organized by JR Goldberg and Riley Rethal, featuring 10+ Jewish tabletop games by incredible Jewish designers, and will be released in late spring/early summer of 2020.

In Yiddish, the word doikayt translates to "hereness". While hereness can be interpreted in many ways, we take it to mean that a Jewish person's ideology, practices and traditions are a product of their environment, and it is these differences in background and knowledge from sources around the world that make the Jewish people so stalwart.

Doikayt was successfully funded on kickstarter at over 300% of its goal, and now you can preorder it before it goes out to the world in May/June. Learn more about the campaign and the contributors on the kickstarter page.

You can preorder the PDF for $12, or you can preorder a physical book by purchasing one of the reward tiers below. A softcover book is $25 + shipping, or a hardcover book is $40 + shipping. US shipping is already included in the price of the rewards, but please keep in mind that international shipping is not. Please add the price specified in the reward description to your purchase if you live outside the US."
