Making Announcements: Pitfalls & Products

I started writing this post over a year ago, and have been sitting on it incomplete for a long time. I feel that in the age of Kickstarter and stretch goals and the frenzied changes to publishing and creation, this is more important than ever. But finishing this post has proved troublesome, so I’m throwing […]

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 […]
