Summary

Do you want to write a science fiction or fantasy setting which provides for extensive body modification through the use of magic or cool technology, but you're wondering how to include transgender people in your world without falling back on offensive stereotypes or erasing their existence altogether? 

This guidebook contains a series of essays covering settings which feature fast, easy, and widely-accessible body alteration, including the futuristic BodyTron5000 ("step right in and we'll jiffy up a uterus!") and fantastical trips to the Gender Witch for magic potions. These settings have ripple effects on trans people both on and off the page, and writers must consider multiple angles of gender presentation and body diversity when creating new worlds. This resource also contains guidelines for role-players and dungeon masters on how to respectfully incorporate transgender characters and issues into fictional game worlds and playing sessions.
