Short story and gaming material up at Patreon!

Only a dollar a month!  I’m practically giving this away.  I mean, I could have cut Frozen Out In Cin City out short at only 3K words and fulfilled my obligations, and it went to 5K because the story required it.  The latest installment of Shoppers for the Ghoul-Lords could have also been hacked back, but I didn’t, because I respect my patrons.  And if you sign up for my Patreon, then I’ll show you that same respect.

Looks like Cubicle 7 is revamping the Laundry RPG game line.

The Laundry, of course, is the RPG based on Charles Stross’s Laundry Lovecraft-spy series*; and based on this blurb at their website the company is in the process of converting everything to a new rules set.  Which is interesting. I mean, it looked like they were using a variant of an older version Call of Cthulhu, which is pretty standard for horror gaming (particularly Lovecraftian gaming).  Are they switching to a newer version?  Converting to GUMSHOE or one of the other, more recent systems? Creating their own?  I have no idea, but I look forward to seeing what they do.

A question: which of my gaming stuff should be developed further?

I am currently working on the best process to convert some of the gaming seeds and whatnot that I do daily into functional game supplements that might be sold to the discerning customer (probably on places like DriveThruRPG). Which leads to the question: what, if any, of my past generic* material would you like to see developed further?  Assume that I will only release a finite number of items per year, of course.

PS: Also: if you have gaming groups that wouldn’t mind playtesting stuff in exchange for their names in the thank-yous, let me know.

*I can only sell RPG supplements for game lines that have Open Gaming Licences. I’m sure that I could get away with it, but I don’t want to get away with it.

Ethereal Domain: Miyazaki’s World. [In Nomine]

Please note: the nature of the In Nomine game world largely requires this to be a horror setting. Sorry about that.  I’m not too thrilled about it, either, but you go where the writeup takes you.

My PJ Lifestyle piece on gifts for roleplaying gamers.

Found here.  Short version: well, there’s a lot of stuff you can buy people like us.  Like, for example: printer ink.  What the heck do they make that stuff out of, anyway?  Unicorn milk, suspended in a platinum solution?

…That should be the other way around, actually.

My PJ Lifestyle piece on introducing rapid tech changes in RPGs.

Found here.  Short version: it ain’t gonna be like Lest Darkness Fall. …Completely. Maybe.  L. Sprague de Camp was a pretty smart dude, after all.

Sorry. I went on a tangent, there.
