Million Dollar Soulmate Launches!

Million Dollar Soulmate Launches!

It focuses, heavily, on the ambiguity and uncertainty we all encounter while looking for someone who completes us. The key question looming…Read More

A New Game! Just In Time For Christmas (2019)!

If you’ve been listening to the TERMINATION SHOCK podcast, you’re aware that I wrote a science fiction roleplaying game. It’s been a blast, with alien misunderstandings, amateur politicians suddenly going pro, haphazard business schemes to corner the market on personal hygiene (“we call it SOAPEC”) and the occasional karaoke contest.

REIGN Update: The Messes

Right now, REIGN — the entirety of the line — exists as a book and sixteen internet supplements (each of which has been collected into a print-on-demand book as well). The goal for the relaunch is to turn that into two books, possibly in an attractive slipcase. Sounds easy, right? You just smack the printed…Read More

The Next Iteration of REIGN

The Next Iteration of REIGN

People, it’s happening. I first released REIGN in 2007, and I can honestly say I didn’t realize where it would go or how. But the material struck a chord, the mechanics found some purchase, and the method of getting paid for it, well… let’s just say that worked well enough that other people started taking…Read More

YOU–Now For Sale!

YOU–Now For Sale!

My novel YOU was a resounding success on Kickstarter, and I could not be more grateful to the backers who put it over $10,000. If you’re one of those backers, I hope you liked the story.

UNKNOWN ARMIES Returns

Some of you may remember a game I worked on? Unknown Armies? Bunch of skeevy weirdos trying to undermine the fundaments of reality because no one else had the brass to try it? It’s back.
