A downloadable game
In his non-LD time—for those of you who aren't aware—our bass player Adam writes and designs very cool/very creative small press tabletop and role playing games as World Champ Game Co. During the writing for “Panorama,” as both a means of escape from the process and as a creative exercise meant to move it along, he wrote and we played together three different original RPGs based on topics, themes, and imagery present in the songs were writing. It was— as someone whose experience in this is pretty limited to standard board games from childhood—pretty revelatory to see how powerful characters and narrative and emotional content can feel when you’re able to immerse yourself a story on all levels, rather than just absorbing it linearly, and to even take part in building a universe while doing so. In the future, all three of those games will be available for the curious to try.
In the meantime, and in keeping with LD holiday tradition, we’re making an ashcan copy of one game in the series (Called “Rose Quartz”) available digitally here ( https://la-dispute.itch.io/rosequartz) to any interested person, along with our entire back catalog of music (including “Rose Quartz/Fulton Street I” from “Panorama”) on Bandcamp (https://ladispute.bandcamp.com/), for pay-what-you-can download for the entirety of the 25th of December, with all donations going directly to the benefit of the National Center for Transgender Equality, an organization that works in amazing ways to protect our friends/family/neighbors/coworkers in the trans community through policy change and a variety of outstanding services geared toward intersectionality, legal protections, the rights of incarcerated trans people, societal acceptance, and many, many others (There’s a ton of great stuff/links to resources on their website for anyone after more information/answers to questions, or for non-monetary ways to get involved: https://transequality.org/about-transgender)
Please consider donating. And really, truly, anything helps. Thank you all in advance, and pass along where you can. Love and peace to all.
