Interviewed on This Modern Death

I was interviewed on the modern horror/dark future gaming podcast This Modern Death recently, and the episode was just posted.

It’s about an hour, and we talk about all sorts of things: Shadowrun, Eclipse Phase, Paparazzi!, finger-painting, how I got into gaming, how I got into working in the game industry, the licensed property I’d like to work on the most, problems in the game industry, Tim Hortons, The Dresden Files RPG, poutine, the future of roleplaying, I poke fun at silly questions that gamers ask, and then turn right around and point out that there are a number of gamers who aren’t online and aren’t clued in to the latest trends and hot new games, and that they’re going to keep on trucking no matter what we say or do.

Thanks to Shaun, Kristin, and Randy at This Modern Death for having me!

Upgrade & Update

Just upgraded the blog to WordPress 2.7—I’ve been playing with the beta version on a site I have in development, and it’s really great.

Personal-work-wise, I’ve been pretty busy with that new site, and hope to launch it early next year … I was hoping for this month, but that’s just not going to happen, with all my work on Eclipse Phase and Shadowrun this month, plus some freelance work. The personal project is a totally new one for me, and has nothing [well, very little] to do with gaming, so that’s pretty exciting.

I took a vacation at the end of November. I don’t think I mentioned that here; I went to Washington, DC, for Thanksgiving. I had a great time chilling out for a week.

Oh, and I bought a copy of Klavika Condensed this week. Isn’t it gorgeous? Watch for it in some upcoming Shadowrun projects.

And that concludes this life update and test post!
