Thousand Suns Rulebook Cover

James Maliszewski posted up the cover of the new Thousand Suns Rulebook today, and it’s already received some nice praise. We’ve been working on this project for a long time, and I’m super-pleased to help take Thousand Suns to the next level, and to help launch James’ new company Grognardia Games with it. James describes […]

FYF Fest, LA, 2011: Did you see someone throw a spike?

My friend Rae was injured at FYF Fest in LA earlier this year when someone threw a metal spike through the crowd. If you were at FYF Fest or had friends or co-workers there, please help spread the word about this, so she can find who did it. Her words are below: Dear friends: I’m […]

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.

Ignite Slides from PepCon

Pricing for Niche Electronic Titles

Backing up and Reinstalling OS X

Are you drunk on holiday wine and reinstalling OS X on your Mac? This is my procedure for backing up and reinstalling. Note: This backup/restore process requires manual twiddling during the restore process, and isn’t recommended unless you’re comfortable dealing with that. It takes more active user time/effort than using Apple’s Migration Assistant, but it […]
