One of the sessions I played at IndieCON was for Edoardo Cremaschi's Marks on the Skin (you may remember him from Little Katy's Tea Party in Consulting). I am wondering whether it is really good for a person to play several Cremaschi and Pettersson games in a short span of time, as each designer quite likes his Bleed and apparently wakes up each morning with a new idea for invoking it.

Stefano first talked with me about this game about a year and a half ago, at Modena Play. At the time, he was anxious about how it might be received, about whether or how one might be designated unsuited or ineligible for authoring such a thing, and about representation in general. Dozens of playtests later, and having weathered at least one internet storm based on exactly those things, he's not anxious any more. He's certain now - and pissed off in the very best way.
