Just got back from a tremendously, awesomely fun weekend at DEXCON! Many thanks to the wonderful Double Exposure staff who put on such a great show, as always. Due to holiday obligations, our convention started on Friday morning. During event signup, I had wanted to run an extra game to expand the schedule, but knew […]


Dreamation 2013

25Feb13

I have never had a bad convention experience at Dreamation, but this year’s was one of the best ever! Low stress, lots of excitement and enthusiasm on faces both old and new made for a very, very good time. I kicked off the convention with my newest Mouse Guard scenario “Death Among the Drifts.” It’s […]


Just got back from a really, really great DEXCON. Played games, ran games, chatted with people, ate good food. Couldn’t ask for anything more. My Thursday afternoon Mobile Frame Zero game only had one player show up. He was a Kickstarter supporter, and I mentioned that the game really sings with three players, but we […]


Just to make the announcement all official-like: I will be re-designing, re-writing, and re-publishing With Great Power. The entire system will be redesigned to handle superheroic melodrama better than ever. The book will be completely rewritten with new aspects, sample characters and scenarios. My goal is to have the game ready for sale by DEXCON 2013. I […]


I woke up with an idea for a story. It’s set in the Liberty League universe that I have used for my With Great Power… convention events. What do you think? ******** THE STALWART in “The Cold, Hard Truth” by Michael S. Miller The Armor of Truth was going to fail. Already a dent in […]


Going to a Double Exposure convention is always a little bit like going home. You see friends you haven’t seen in far too long, you talk until your voice goes raw, and you smile until your face aches. Or at least I do. Thursday We were doing convention prep until the wee hours of the […]


Maybe so many years of really, really great years at Origins set the bar too high. Maybe the staff and software changes at GAMA came too late to be truly integrated into convention management. Maybe the stars were just wrong. Whatever the reason, Origins 2010 was plagued with numerous drawbacks and pitfalls. On the whole, the people made for a positive experience, but I was left wondering if we’ll return next year.


The fine folks over at Minions of the Monster Master have podcasted their actual play of With Great Power… and blogged about it. Check it out! I love how they use minis on the pages of conflict to illustrate who’s fighting who.


I’ve been unhappy with superhero comics for a number of years. Part of it is due to a lack of a browse-able comic book store in the area. As titles I liked came to an end, I wasn’t able to find new things to like. Every now and then, I’d pick up the odd issue […]



For months and months, I’ve been somebody else. A troubled, heartsick, disgusted, frustrated, isolated, curmudgeonly version of me. Not every day, but more often than not. And for the last four days, I had a chance to take off that heavy, confining suit, and put on a better skin–to be a better version of me. […]


I’m taking a rest between the Christmas festivities at my mom’s house and taking everyone over to Kat’s family for the next phase. And what to my wondering eyes should appear, but James Nostack writing an awesome actual play about his With Great Power… A completely unexpected Christmas treat!


Scott Dunphy’s Story Shtick just started a three-part series on With Great Power… Check it out!
