Had a great time this weekend at Dreamation 2012. As always, the Double Exposure staff put on a great convention. The players are always top-notch and this year was no different. Thursday I started off the con playing Monsterhearts, MC’d by Brendan Conway. The game is built on the Apocalypse World chasis and sinks its […]


I’ve got the proof of Serial Homicide Unit in my hands. It needs a few tweaks, but on the whole, it looks good. We won’t be able to ship physical copies before the end of the year, but January 15 looks VERY likely. Yay! Preorders will open in the next week. There was lots of […]


I was reading an editorial by the former publisher of the National Review endorsing Barack Obama. It was interesting. But this is not a political post. He quoted someone I must admit I’d never previously heard of (but has an interesting Wikipedia entry): “Every great cause,” Eric Hoffer wrote, “begins as a movement, becomes a […]


I’vebeen listening to a few episodes of The Sons of Kryos this week. One of their segments was on character creation sessions. Both on SoK and on innumerable threads & blog posts around the web, I hear about these great character creation sessions that get everyone excited to play. Everyone pitches in, gets interested in […]

Yeah, it’s been forever and a day since I updated this thing. Life happened. A lot. I could spend lots of time going into it, and maybe I will. But not now. I think I figured out another reason why most of my game designs do not use dice. It comes back to the social […]

Very, very busy week last week. Started off with recovering from Southern Exposure, only to find that Carl had reviewed WGP on RPG.net He’s was very complimentary, and there was no real fire in the discussion thread, which I kinda screwed up anyway. But there was a small spike in orders, so it’s all good. […]


Picking up Saturday afternoon. My mood was much improved after the morning’s WGP game. I was keen to play in Scott’s Sorcerer scenario, as I had run Sorcerer for him two years ago. I believe he had a full four players signed up, so I hung out with Luke waiting to see if there would […]


I went to Southern Exposure in Cherry Hill, NJ this weekend. The con went much better than expected. Fall cons have, with a few exceptions, been a bit cursed with me. Plus I woke up Friday morning with a sore throat, so I figured the weekend was gonna suck. Glad I was wrong. Friday we […]

Just got off the phone with Jason Roberts. I think it’s been over a year since I spoke with him. We’re both family men now with kids to provide for. But we weren’t always…. Jason is my cousin and was my first Dungeon Master. We’d see each other on Easter and Thanksgiving and I’d pull […]
