BattleTech fans, I have a large number of extra BattleTech books. Books that I worked hard on, books that I’m proud of. But, they are extras, and I need some cash and space in my office more than I need them. So here’s the deal&mdashlpick a book from the list below (all full-color hardcovers, except […]
We at Posthuman Studios have published our Year End Review 2010. It’s lengthy, contains sales figures for Eclipse Phase, discusses our successes and failures in 2010, and speculates on 2011 a little bit. Enjoy!
A disclaimer: I wrote most of this post before Adamant Entertainment announced they were re-pricing all of their PDFs at $1, or what Gareth dubbed the “app-pricing” model. I think the approach is interesting, but this post is not a “response” to his decision … although I am incredibly curious as to how it turns […]
PlainText is a great little tool for the iPad; a simple text editor that syncs everything to a Dropbox folder. I’ve been using it to scribble notes and start blog posts while away from the computer lately, and very much enjoying the experience. The iOS 4.2 update has really cranked up the iPad in my […]
Over on RPG.net, there’s a thread discussing TheMouse’s “bite-sized” explanation of Fate. Several people have made 1-page (front and back) pamphlet-style versions of his condensed rules. My rough take on the idea is here: https://adamjury.com/files/BiteSizedFate_Nov22_2AM.pdf (if I update this file, I’ll just update that link and post a note. For now, I’m asking that people […]
On an industry mailing list I subscribe to, a few days ago, someone pointed out a site that contained pirated PDFs of thousands of gaming books. I sent off a flip comment: Damnit. Eclipse Phase stuff, which can be legally shared, isn’t there. I wonder if I can just upload it… 😉 Someone sent me […]
I want someone to start an Eclipse Phase fanzine. Over the last few years, posts on weblogs and message boards have largely replaced the fan or semipro ‘zine, and as someone who really got into gaming fandom by running a Shadowrun fanzine, I think that running a fanzine is really fun and can provide you […]
Gen Con started badly for me. I flew out from DC on Wednesday morning; my girlfriend Kristen on a direct flight and me with a connection through Chicago. Some bad weather meant my flight from DC left late, and my flight—and the flight before it—to Indianapolis were cancelled. There was no chance of going standby […]
My Gen Con tips from last year contain this piece of advice: There is a CVS about three blocks from the convention center. It is your best bet for inexpensive bottled drinks, snackfood, cigarettes, Red Bull, and condoms. Jonathan Medina (@mtgmetagame) had this to say about that advice, yesterday: Just read @adamjury’s GenCon Tips -> […]
I haven’t updated my Gen Con tips this year; I intended to, but it simply hasn’t happened. Last year’s tips should still be useful, though: Part 1: Before the Show! Part 2: At the Show Part 3: Looking for Work See you at the show!
