New Divinations for a New Era

As I talked about in my previous post, I’m working on revising Iron Edda: War of Metal and Bone. I’ve also talked about how I’m working on a cyberpunk take on Iron Edda, called Reforged. In the War of Metal and Bone post, I mentioned that I’m...

It’s Amazing to See the Journey

I’m sitting at my desk, fingers poised to double-click on a Word document I haven’t opened in six years. On the surface, I’m not really worried about it. I mean, it’s just a set of words, right? But underneath, I’m anxious, scared of what...

New Small Game in the Works!

I got an idea the other day. Ideas like this often turn into small games that I publish on itch, and this one is no different.  As of right now, I know the title is: Oh Shit, They Kidnapped Santa! I also know it’s going to be a quick game, designed for a one...

The Bike Rig I Used (and what I learned)

Last week, I spent three days riding from Cleveland to Columbus on the bike pictured above. I was supposed to make it to Cincinnati across five days, but three was all I could handle. This was part of a game project I Kickstarted, and the backers were interested in...

Down the Old Rail Line, Day 1

This Isn’t Going to Go How You Expect it to Go That phrase should have been firmly in my mind as I set out in the first day of this trip. If you’re not familiar, I decided to celebrate my 40th birthday with a five-day, cross-Ohio bikepacking trip. Start in...
Embracing Uncertainty

Embracing Uncertainty

It’s mid-August. I’m on my bike, riding down on the of the local trails. It’s hot, but not too hot. Sunny, pleasant. An idea is building in my mind as the wind rushes past me. Something to do to mark my 40th year, something I can turn into an event I...

Paper Arcade vol. 2 Theme: Black Liberation

Paper Arcade vol. 2 Theme Announcement! As you may know, I’ve begun production on Paper Arcade vol. 2. With this issue, I wanted to focus on raising up Black voices. To that end, I’ve asked a number of talented creators to be part of this project....

My Streaming Setup!

Hello! I’ve been dabbling with streaming for a while, now. A while back, I was streaming enough to get Affiliate status, even. Until last night, I’d not ever really felt like my setup was equal to what I wanted out of the experience. Some new hardware has...

Project Status Update: 7/1/18

It’s the first of the month, so why not start a new accountability/public info thing for the projects I’ve got going on? Ready? Here’s what I’m working on, how, why, and the deadlines (or lack thereof). Professional RPG Projects Iron Edda...

What You’re Worth

There’s been some talk on Twitter recently about pay in RPGs. It’s a topic that’s never far from my mind, but the recent discussions have me thinking about it even more than usual. It’s a topic with a lot of hard realities baked in and I feel...

Moving Out of a Galaxy Far, Far Away

This coming Wednesday, we’re going to have what will likely be the last session of the Star Wars: Rogue Trader game on TheOtherCast. This is a pretty cool milestone for us. We started playing this campaign just about a year ago. As had been my habit, I’d...

Fate of the Planes Mixup

So, I made a mistake when I was getting the most recent Fate of the Planes episodes posted. I accidentally posted what’s really Episode 3 as Episode 2’s file last week. That means when I posted Episode 3 yesterday, it looked like a duplicate. What you need...

2017 Origins Week Recap

Origins came to a close yesterday, though lucky people are leaving Columbus today. Last week was good in a lot of ways, not the least of which were the launches of two new shows. Fate of the Zakros Planes (Span?) FotP and Zakros Span both launched last week and as of...

Two New Shows for TheOtherCast!

It’s a big week over here in my corner of the world. For the last few months I’ve been prepping and recording two new actual play shows for the podcast. Fate of the Planes Fate of the Planes is, well, Planescape played using modified Fate Core rules. The...

We’re Live!

I’ve been toying with the idea of having my own website for a while, now. I finally took the initiative and got things set up. It’s a little raw right now, but I’m going to add to it as time goes on. I can say this: getting this stuff set up helped...
