You want to be a cell leader in the Underground Network? Play Misspent Youth
(available currently for preorder
) with me from this day forward, and you're in. Once you're a cell leader, you get a free, enhanced, and personalized copy of the game in PDF form, and the power to make more cell leaders.Buh?
Play the game with me from this day forward, and I'll give you a Package.Package
Your Package is a personalized, annotated, enhanced PDF of my new tabletop sci-fi roleplaying game about friendship and standing up for the weak, Misspent Youth
Register the Package I give you, then you get your own individualized Package, complete with a unique cypher.
(The cypher will either be removable, or a Package will include two files, one which has it and one which doesn't. I'm not doing an anti-piracy thing, here. I'll just ask you not to fuck up the Network by being an asshole.)
Your package allows you to extend the same deal to other people. You can make a copy of your cypher-personalized Package, and if they want to register to become cell leaders, they just give me your cypher, then they get their own Package.The cypher
I intend to use the cypher to unlock enhanced material, perhaps additional customization options, first looks at new material, etc. I specifically imagine allowing people to share their cypher history if they wish, so there can be a document of the culture of the Network.The Network's home
For the time being at least, Underground Network will be hosted on a Vimeo group
, which will also act as a repository for videos that are in the spirit of the game. There are forums there as well.
Underground Network is an effort intensely linked to the themes of Misspent Youth
. It's about trust, interpersonal connections, enthusiasm, and subverting the dominant scheme for sharing ideas. It's about sharing creativity and passion, and I hope you consider joining.
