The June Patreon stuff is up!

Huzzah! And my kinda-sort mini-vacation is almost at an end.


SWORDS OF THE SERPENTINE is at the distributors.

Just what it says on the tin.

Been looking forward for SWORDS OF THE SERPENTINE for a while. Helped playtest it, Kevin Kulp’s a good egg and I knew Em back in the In Nomine List days. I was extremely pleased to see her name on the cover; she does good work. Can’t wait to get my copy!

Looks like I’m gonna be getting some D&D time in.

Online campaign. They need a healer, and/or a fighter. Half-orc neutral good cleric with the Soldier background sounds about right*.

*Any similarity between this character and Father Mike from FROZEN DREAMS is completely not coincidental. I’d prefer full orc, really, but it apparently won’t quite work in this campaign. Which is cool.


The Miskatonic Playhouse’s ‘The Dragon of Wantley’ drops tomorrow.

This looks interesting!

This is “an actual play video and podcast with regular guests and community scenarios” being put up by The Miskatonic Playhouse, which sounds… kind of neat, really. I don’t watch this sort of thing normally, but something about this tickles my fancy. Maybe it’s the promise of production values.

New/Old/It’s Complicated GURPS Stuff!

Of most immediate interest to me is Fourth Edition GURPS Adaptations, which gives you advice on how to convert existing fictional worlds for your game. There’s also GURPS Template Toolkit 1: Characters, which is mostly technical advice on creating efficient game characters; GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Setting: Caverntown, which seems rather straightforward; and a reprint of the Third Edition GURPS Discworld Also, which I have a playtest credit for. And, yes: that was totally cool, and I am fairly pleased with myself for scoring the aforementioned credit.


The Secret World RPG Kickstarter is scheduled for 4Q 2022.

And that’s all I know.

I’ll be backing this, naturally. Anything that gets more people interested in the Secret World Legends MMO, which would means updates to the MMO. I might even be tempted to write a scenario or two for it, although it’d require me getting deeper into 5e D&D. Still, worth it for the personal satisfaction, if nothing else…
