2019 has finally arrived...

Where are my spinners? Where are the off world colonies? The star ships on fire off the should of Orion! Where I say! We're on track for a shitty world sans on all the cool cyberpunk stuff... And as disappointing as that is I'd still like the start off the new year on a bright note!

SKY OV CRIMSON FLAME IS 40% OFF!


I was out of the country for Cyber-Lich Monday and couldn't throw you folks a good deal! So take this one instead! Not only that, but I'm putting the t-shirts I have over on Etsy for sale too. I have a limited supply of my adventure module left so get your's while supplies last.

And in Other News!

I've been writing diligently since my return from Japan. The next module (and subsequent sequel) Seekers ov the Other Worlds currently sits at 37000+ words and growing! Should the gods be willing (and I don't stab my hand at the start of this year) I will actually have a finished draft soon. I know there is a looming cloudy called film work approaching from all sides that will more than likely sweep me away from my books and cats, but if I just keep up this pace I'll be in a good spot.

I also want to come into this digital age and record some playtest sessions, podcasts, or something similar and game related. But we'll see if any of that actually pans out.

Enjoy the New Year (and the sale!) and my your rolls be high and your character deaths glorious!

The End of the Year is Nigh

And in its death comes the renewed possibility of creativity. This was a very busy year for me and like many of us filled with highs and lows. Join me on this recap of my year and what the future may hold if I get my shit together!

In the Beginning...


The year started off to a great start when I was hired as a Locations Asst. for the new Halloween movie (which at the time of filming was dubbed "Uncle Orange"). This high was short lived however, as on the first week of filming I stabbed myself in the palm of my left hand suffering only 1 hp of damage, but at least 2 pts of temporary Strength damage (my middle finger is still numb).

During the next 4 weeks me and my gimp hand tried our best to work as much as we could in the freezing months of January and February. During this time I was unable to write fully which begin a series of mental issues in the form of crippling self-doubt, that I've carrying forever probably, but seemed to manifest itself more this year than ever before. The last two weeks of filming, my hand was healed (though not fully) and soon we wrapped production on Halloween. Did you see the film? My GMC Jimmy in it! Best scene probably!



A week after filming, the lady and I took a trip to UK where I gained some much need XP and used those points to heal mentally, finding peace and tranquility in the Scottish Highlands and even stumbling upon an ancient caste that belong to the Campbell Clan (of whom were the protectors of the Thompson Clan).

The Middle Year...


So when I came back to the States I was ready to write! And write I did, for a time, until I was called to work on some commercials and then a shitty Hallmark movie and a little movie called Jungle Cruise and then some more commercials and then a crappy T.V. show. Now don't get me wrong, I like working in film (would I rather just be a screenwriter and get paid a ton of money sure), but the problem is that in order to do so I have to travel to SC or GA and then I don't get much time to write while I work.

The Year's End...


After working for 4 weeks on a TV show called The Passage, the lady, her brother, and I went on a 6 week trip to Japan and Korea. After these six weeks I definitely think I received enough XP to level up (not sure what level though, maybe I'm 3rd lvl by now?) We saw many a great temple and even greater temple cats (of whom are the true harbingers of wisdom). Though that trip was magical, life altering (I want to live there) event, that has help my mental health if not my physical (I ate too many treats), after 6 weeks I was ready to go back to my house to be with my books and kitties and most importantly WRITE!

2019 & Beyond!

And so this brings us to the present, where in all possibilities stem forth to new and greater horizons! The first of which is to finish this damn adventure module I'm been writing forever, the second is to work on the many other projects I have stowed away in my mind. From board-games to new adventures, campaign setting, and screenplays. I want to do too much and I know it, but hopefully I have time on my side this year and I can make the best of it!


G+ DOOM CLOCK:

With the impending demise of G+ I will be adding social media links to the side bar of blogger encase you wish to follow me on multiple social media platforms were I'm sure to rambling endlessly. Below are the current ones (note I'm most active on twatter and even then not that much).

Greetings from Japan

Hello friends! It's been a while since we've spoke, but I and Sir Hooticus still live, we have just journeyed East. As of this writing I am halfway through my 6 week excursion through Japan with the lady and thus far it's been extremely insightful and inspirational. I've been thinking about putting together a zine for DCC that focuses Eastern mythology, classes, etc, for a while now and this trip is just furthering my urge! This plan is pretty far on the back burner as I still have several other things to finish and I'm beginning to think I'm as slow as ol' GRRM, alas... shikatagana!

I'll be back in the states early December, where I will promptly lock myself away in my dungeon and write till my fingers bleed. Which will hopefully result in a finished module!

- Cheers!

GenCon 2018: Aftermath!

The only shot I've manage to find of me running a game. This was The Emerald Enchanter. I killed 3 of the 6 PCs!

GenCon 51 has come and gone. Along the way I ripped my shorts drunkenly dancing to a Shitty Flute rendition  of Lynyrd Skynyrd's Free Bird whilst scarfing down way too many White Castle sliders at four in the fucking morning... Ran several DCC-RPG adventures, including one session of Sky ov Crimson Flame in which I killed all 24 PCs! (Sorry no pictures because I'm terrible at social media.)

I met up with a lot of old friends and made plenty of new ones along the way. My liver is probably on it's last leg and my memory of some nights are a bit hazy, but overall I'd have to say GenCon 2018 was a success despite the fact I forgot to pack my damn adventure modules... Ah well...

Here are some pics I found of myself... (Sorry no ripped shorts shots! Though I'm sure they're out there)

Talked to this Goat for a solid hour!

A candid shot from the Goodman Games booth. (And no, I don't know what I'm looking at.)

Finally a big shout out to my brothers in arms! Jarrett Crater, Reese Carter & Christian Kessler, who made GenCon and our Mongrel Haus a blast!

Sky ov Crimson Flame Purchases

If you happen to purchase one of the copies of Sky ov Crimson Flame at the Goodman Games booth and you'd like a PDF version, just send me a picture with your GenCon badge in frame and I'll shoot you over a complimentary copy!

On writing:

GenCon has got me pumped to write! I pitched the concept for Seekers ov the Other Worlds to some folks and everyone was stoked on the ideas I had, which in turn has me stoked! Hopefully I can pump out a first draft and get to playtesting. 

Cheers!

On & On We Go!

So it's been about a month since my last post, figure it was time for a new one! Since then I've written approximately 70+ pages of the Seekers ov the Other Worlds (not including the pages upon pages of notes, b-sides and other bullshit). I've also manage to actually get a weekly game session going and introduced 4 new people to the magical world of RPGs with DCC-RPG. I've been running my Blights ov the Eastern Forest campaign and after in doing that I'm hopping to learn from some past mistakes, because... whew boy, there's some questionable things written in the module where I've had to ask myself, "What the hell were you thinking?"

On top of that I've been working on another project that I'll be keeping hush-hush at the moment, but it's been nice to step away from the other and focus on another.

All this will be coming to a screeching halt starting this week as I embark on a 3 week shoot for Hallmark. Oh joy! Afterwards I come right back home and then head off the Gen Con! What does that mean for Seekers ov the Other Worlds? Well unfortunately I won't have a first draft ready before GenCon, but I have been slamming pages out like there's no tomorrow, so maybe the days on this shoot will be short (doubtful) and I won't be dog tired and mentally drained (doubtful) after every day.

Anywho GENCON! (Who wants to grab a beer?)

I'll be running four DCC games there:

Thursday, 2nd:
  • Sky ov Crimson Flame: 2pm-6pm
  • Shadow Under Devil's Reef: 7pm-11pm
Friday, 3rd:
  • Blights ov the Eastern Forest: 8pm-12am (why did I choose those times...)
Saturday, 4th:
  • The Emerald Enchanter: 2pm-6pm

On top of that I'll be working the Goodman Games booth, meetin' & greetin', drinking heavily no doubt, and spending cash like I have it... So see you there!
