Grab Your Gear

I have seldom been as proud to be involved in a project as I am in this one:

Cover for Gatecrashing

This is, quite simply, one of the best written (and appearing!)  RPG supplements I’ve ever been involved with, bar none. You can get the PDF here for an incredibly reasonable price for what you are getting ($10), but trust me, you’ll want this one in print.

It Burns!

It burns us, burns us with the terrible, terrible light of truth!

The Bolter has arrived at last!

Look upon this, oh enemies of liberty (or at least, of the United States) and despair.


I’ve actually seen one of these weapons used – they are absolutely devastating and what the article doesn’t tell you is that they are often paired with advanced sensor / sights including a sonic device that works kind of like a bat’s echolocation and a thermographic camera that can see right through walls alla the Predator.

Holy Crap, I sound like that?

Apparently I do:

I don’t really look like that any more though. I have less weight (yay!) and less hair (boo!).

A Tempest Strikes Our Little Teapot

Oh my, but the kids are up in arms.

My two cents: never lowball yourself, ever. Dangerous habit.

Sorry Kids, I was busy with Ferelden

I’ve been finishing up Set 2 for the Dragon Age PnP over the last month or so. Finished recently, slowly unwinding as I prepare for truly kicking ass on the monstrous big project that sits upon my horizon…

Also trying desperately to contain my mounting excitement: it’s about time to head to Vegas, Baby, Fallout style.

Give Me the Horizon

So a piece of my future was revealed today.

Allow me to share three thoughts with you all:

We may be what we say we are, but sometimes, we must become what others need us to be.

Beware of men with butterfly tattoos.

Our bards don’t need no stinkin’ badges.

Back in the Saddle

Whew, home again, home again, jiggity-jog. Back in Cali-forn-i-a, mostly intact.

My plane back from GenCon routed through Denver and I shared that leg of the trip with the greater bulk of the Paizo folks who were proceeding onto Seattle while I passed west to San Francisco. As we were cruising along, I got to idly thinking about the cottage gaming industry and mosaics.

If you take a tile from an intricate mosaic, you have disrupted its perfection; however, if you took said tile from the edge of the design, most folks wouldn’t notice. The closer to the centre, the easier the flaw is to perceive.  Remove several tiles, and the break in the mosaic becomes immediately visible.

So many of the wonderful (and even the not so wonderful) folks in the gaming industry I know are all irreplaceable tiles in the grand pattern. Lose one and it just won’t ever be the same.

Like I said, idly musing… I think I’ll be one of those bright turquoise hexagon tiles.

Oh, yes – my voice? It is nearly non-existent at the moment. I can do a spot-on Gollum impersonation though.

Where Are Ideas Born?

“Within Dreams” used to be my answer. I’ll have to come up with a new one, ’cause everybody will think I’m cribbing from Inception from now on.

That’s okay though. Inception leapt to my personal top 3 movies of this life in one viewing, which is pretty damn remarkable, as I’m an old and jaded cinema goer. That Nolan fella has got him some leet skills.

Review? Nope. Reviewing perfection is like unto personal blasphemy.


Alright, one line review: Lacuna with a Neuromancer chaser.

Edification by Request

So I’ve been asked to expand upon my previous entry.

To wit:

I assisted Mr. Pramas in the writing of Dragon Age: Set 1. DA has been nominated in both the Best Game and Product of the Year categories.

In Best Game – DA is up against Hero 6th Edition, Pathfinder, Shadowrun-20th Anniversary, and Wild Talents 2nd Edition. Honourable Mention goes to Labyrinth Lord. I predict Shadowrun Silver and the Gold to Pathfinder.

In Product of the Year DA is up against a whole bunch of awesome – I make no predictions, but note that I’m rooting for Eclipse Phase. [Point: I did not work on the EP core book. I did write for one of the kick arse supplements that will finally be moving forward now that Posthuman has been resleeved.]

To sum up: it is always gratifying to have one’s work acknowledged – chance of actually winning this year: slim… And Pramas did all the heavy lifting anyway.
