Gen Con Highlight

On Friday morning, a woman walked up to our booth. She said: “You guys look like you know what you’re doing. Do you have a bandaid?” And I replied: “Yes, let me get our first aid kit.” As it happened, I had needed a bandaid myself earlier that morning and had opened the brand-new kit, […]

Kickstarter, Freeport, and Real Costs

Thousand Suns is Available!

Just before the holidays, PDF, softcover, and hardcover versions of Thousand Suns Rulebook are now available. I did the cover and interior design on this project, and all the production. It’s been interesting working on a sci-fi game that is so different from Eclipse Phase, and also working on such a setting-light game. I think […]

Gen Con 2011

My company, Posthuman Studios, will have a Gen Con 2011 report soon. We went, we made money, we drank, we had meetings, we played games. I kissed a troll.
