Hi. My name is Greg Stolze, this is my web page, and I write books.

Ludonarrative Dissidents

Ludonarrative Dissidents

Hey, wanna hear me, a charmingly systems-promiscuous GM and a British guy talk about games? If you do, click here now. If you want to know more, read on. It’s OK. You’ll have another chance to click that link. A few months back, Twitter was talking about Old Gods of Appalachia and how to turn…Read More

Fight Like A Fop! (Or just read new stories.)

Fight Like A Fop! (Or just read new stories.)

This really, maybe should have been two posts, but fickle fate conspired to let me launch one project just as another completes. So let’s do one big newsflash with two headlines. Dueling Fops of Vindamere is Live on Kickstarter! I’ve been waiting for this one a long time. My newest game is a Crankshaft Constellation…Read More

Hey. Want Some New Stories?

Hey. Want Some New Stories?

2021 is the year I’ve started to suspect that any money I’ve made from fiction has been despite my level of skill at business, and not because of it. But with the help of my fans, I’ve maintained and grown the fiction library on this very website. Now, I’d like to do it again. I…Read More

Robots and Aliens and Gadgets, Oh My!

Robots and Aliens and Gadgets, Oh My!

I’ve got a new Kickstarter running, and it’s for a book called DIFFERENT TROUBLE, the first supplement for TERMINATION SHOCK. If you’re already a huge TERMINATION SHOCK fan, I hope this is good news! It’s about 80 pages focusing on playable characters who aren’t human. But it’s more than just “you’re lighter-than-air” or “you have…Read More

Updates As We Move Through History

Updates As We Move Through History

I’m posting an update to keep all you interested parties informed about two aspects of my life. One is my private citizen health and wellbeing, and the other is the game-and-fiction production that is the anchor and raison d’etre for this whole site. The Stolzes’ Personal Lives I am safe, my family is safe, everyone…Read More

Million Dollar Soulmate Launches!

Million Dollar Soulmate Launches!

I wrote a short game, and you can now buy it for five dollars. Million Dollar Soulmate is a two-person, no-GM, one-shot tabletop roleplaying game about the promise and hazards of seeking romance. 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)!

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. Having thoroughly playtested it and…Read More

REIGN 2ed Is Happening!

REIGN 2ed Is Happening!

After much effort and delay, we finally have the Kickstarter running for the second edition of REIGN! With the business and layout powerhouse that is Atomic Overmind Press, we’re releasing a cleaned-up, full color, gorgeous version of my original game about lords and leaders in fantasy settings, and we are off to a great start!…Read More

Another Fiction Kickstarter Succeeds!

Another Fiction Kickstarter Succeeds!

Always a cause for rejoicing in the Stolze household. This one was for science fiction, so brace yourself for a string of links, OK? Are you braced? You are? All right. First off, there’s First Contact, which is what it sounds like, a story of people meeting aliens for the first time. In this case,…Read More

REIGN Update: The Messes

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
