Description Edit | History

"Emily Care Boss is an Indie roleplaying game designer and publisher. She is the author of Breaking the Ice, Shooting the Moon and Under my Skin (LARP). She currently resides in Plainfield Massachusetts.

Boss graduated from University of Massachusetts Amherst with a bachelors degree in Social Thought and Political Economy and masters degree in Forestry. She is currently a forestry consultant in the woodlands of western Massachusetts. Boss co-writes Fair Game, with Meguey Baker a blog-style design and roleplaying theory journal. She is the founding owner of Black and Green Games.

A contributor to the role playing journal Push, Emily has designed role playing games and discussed role playing game theory since 1999. She organizes the JiffyCon series of indie roleplaying game mini-conventions in Massachusetts, was a guest of honor in August 2007 at the Finnish role playing convention, Ropecon, and in 2009 at the Danish role playing convention Fastaval. Her new game of alien first contact, Sign in Stranger, was released in August 2009.

Boss and Vincent Baker are attributed as formulating the Lumpley Principle (a.k.a. Baker-Care or Baker-Boss Principle) which states "System (including but not limited to 'the rules') is defined as the means by which the group agrees to imagined events during play." Further development of the Lumpley Principle described player contributions as being assigned credibility by the other players in the game."
