Playing Fearless

I feel like everyplace else out here, I’m “talking at you”, I’d like to talk with you. About how we play games, tweak games. How we play when our tank is empty, or make time for gaming when our calendar is full. How do we game with our kids, our partners? Is there life after gaming?

Play Fearless is me, Jahmal “Mad Jay” Brown. I want to engage deeper with you about games and all the parts that overlap it in our lives.

Who’s Mad Jay?

I’m the author of By Aecer’s Light, The Clockwinders for Fate, Cortex’s Prime Supers, and a contributing author on Pathfinder’s Mwangi Expanse, Trophy Gold, Hit the Streets, Defend the Block and the upcoming Out of the Ashes.

I am a GM-4-hire at where I run a 40+ west marches game.

I’m the host of the Diceology podcast and a streamer with the crew on Twitch/ActualPlay.

I love games and stories about outsiders and underdogs, overcoming challenges. I do game with my kids —I’m still working on my mom.
