A bit of info about JotDA

April 20, 2014

0

So one of the things I wanted to do when following up rpgKids was to do something completely different from it in every sense. I didn’t want to create rpgKids 2.0, and I wanted to move away from the “DnD” inspired fantasy trappings for the game. So I gave myself a series of challenges: The […]

My rpgKids followup…

I’ve been working here and there on a follow up to rpgKids, and I’m slowly getting to the finish line… I launched a webpage for the project today, so I thought I’d link it here. There’s not much there but a description of the setting/story of the game. Soon, when I have more to share […]

The GAMA Trade Show is currently taking place in Vegas (where Greg Leeds, WOTC CEO is the keynote speaker), and some news regarding D&D 5th Ed. came out following WOTC’s presentation.

Working on a new kids’ game

February 11, 2014

I’ve been working on a new kids’ game the past few months, and it’s finally starting to take shape. I’m pretty excited about it. As opposed to rpgKids, which was basically a pretty simple ruleset with no story attached, this game will have a story built into it, and not be as combat focused as […]

Looking for an artist or two

January 30, 2014

Here’s the deal. I’m looking for an artist for a secret super duper special project (my next kid’s game, don’t tell anyone… shhh). Right now I need some art to give my work-in-progress play test document some flavor, I’m thinking one or two pieces of art should do it. So here’s what I need… send […]

Gencon Bound

After two years of not attending “the best four days in gaming”, I’ve decided to once again attend Gencon 2014. The reasons were twofold, first because of the expected celebrations around the release of DnD 5th Ed. and DnD’s 40th anniversary, which I would like to be there for, and second because I miss hanging […]

So as most of us thought, the release date for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Ed. has been announced, and the game lands on the nebulous “Summer 2014″ date… which is clearly a Gencon launch. Here’s the cryptic release… Why cryptic? Let’s talk after you read it… Wizards of the Coast Announces Thrilling Dungeons & Dragons […]

Lately I’ve been on kind of a Fate kick. I picked up both Fate Core, and Fate Accelerated Edition from Evil Hat Productions, and I’ve been digging into them all week. For those of you that follow this blog mostly from the D&D side of the street, and aren’t aware of Fate, it’s an rpg […]
