Everybody Loves a Bargain, Right?

Some time ago, I published a book called Dinosaurs…in SPAAACE! It got some good reviews, I sold some, but (as is natural in a product cycle) eventually shiny new stuff like D&D 5ed came along and people forgot about it. But IPR’s warehouse isn’t infinite, so I’ve decided to activate the Fire Sale option and…Read More

The Dangers of Fraternization

The Dangers of Fraternization

I wrote a film noir game called A Dirty World, and Caleb Stokes (the brains and the looks behind Hebanon Games) went and wrote The Dangers of Fraternization, a scenario for it set in partition-era Berlin.Read More

BETTER ANGELS Is Out Too!

BETTER ANGELS Is Out Too!

This was a long time time coming and, going by the reviews, worth the wait. BETTER ANGELS is my new supervillain RPG, out now courtesy of ARC DREAM publishingRead More

Usagi Yojimbo

Usagi Yojimbo

This is the first and, to date, only full RPG with me as the primary author… though I’m hesitant to really call this ‘my creation’. I wrote all the words, except for the index of events in the back, but it’s Stan Sakai’s world and I just play there.Read More

GODLIKE

GODLIKE

Just as John Tynes approached me and said “I’ve got this game idea that needs mechanics” and we made Unknown Armies, so too did Dennis Detwiller approach me and say the same thing forGODLIKE. Only his concept was “gritty, really gritty, low powered superheroes in World War II. With extra grit.” So I read what…Read More

Vampire: the Requiem

Vampire: the Requiem

I didn’t get to work on this main book directly, which is a shame because White Wolf gives you a pay bump for core rule writing. However, while it was being composed, its first couple supplements (Nomads and Rites of the Dragon) were in simultaneous development. I wrote Rites and, to my delight, Justin included qu otes from it in the main book.Read More

Over the Edge

Over the Edge

This is not just the first game line to publish my work, it was also the game that lured me back into playing.Read More

Feng Shui

Feng Shui

As I mentioned earlier, this started out as a Daedalus game but, well, time makes fools of us all. If you haven’t played it and think you’d enjoy a game where an action like “my character dives through the plate glass window, kicks the pistol from the gunman’s hand while in midair, and insouciantly rolls to his feet without spilling any of his chicken nuggets” can be taken without any particular penalty, you’d probably like it. It’s by Robin Laws, and the setting is essentially “Every movie ever made in Hong Kong.”Read More
