Speaking at PePcon in Chicago: June 15-18

I’m going to speaking at PePcon in Chicago this summer. This is the fifth Print + ePublishing Conference, hosted by the fine people that run InDesignSecrets and CreativePro. I’ve attended three of the four previous PePcons, and it’s always a smoothly-run show with great speakers and a collaborative, sharing atmosphere. It attracts a pretty wide […]

Game Designer’s Workshop: Posthuman Studios Interview

At Gen Con 2013, the owners of Posthuman Studios (Rob Boyle, Brian Cross, Jack Graham, and myself) sat down with the folks at Roleplaying Public Radio to record this episode of Game Designer’s Workshop. We were a little tipsy when this interview started (it was, after all, after business hours at Gen Con …), and […]

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, […]

Transhuman Kickstarter!

I’ve been remiss in not posting here about the Transhuman Kickstarter, which is currently running! Unlike other Kickstarters I’ve talked about here, this one is being run by my company, Posthuman Studios. We quickly funded at the level we needed to print the book ($14,000), and we’ve been working our way through additional stretch goals […]

Take Your One Shot!

I’ve been on an unintentional hiatus from blogging, but intend to get back on track. Here’s a start: One Shot, by Tracy Barnett of Exploding Rogue has just been released! You can grab the PDF and Soundtrack together. Tracy funded One Shot via Kickstarter last year and brought me on board to handle the graphic […]

Affordable Interlocking Convention Floor Mats

This is one of those posts that I started last year … but I’m buying more today, so I’m throwing this post up as-is! I’ve been shopping for interlocking convention mats over the last few days. These mats are also used in playschools and martial arts studios and all sorts of places. They’re a couple […]

Dwimmermount Preview and Kickstarter!

It’s going to be the most elegant and epic heavy metal dungeon crawl ever, isn’t it? It’s like a 3-hour Kirk Hammett guitar solo sending the party to war with the power of a hundred bards!1 Hell yes! Several years ago I sent James Maliszewski the above, as I asked him if I could work […]
