Currently, I'm trying to build a tabletop games and learning program for the university I'm working for. The library wants to offer games as a pedagogy and experiential learning tool--and I get to lead the way on it! I have a (small) budget, but I'm also trying to get game companies to donate materials--starter kits, books, board games, card games, whatever. If you have something you'd like to donate or know someone who would, please DM me or boost so others can see!

In 2 weeks I'll be out of my old job, pursuing game design full-time. "Living the dream". But that means living off my savings until I can pull an income. Soon I'll be launching Patreons and such.

I'm terrified. I don't have a large following. I'm afraid I'll fade into obscurity, run out of money, and have to abandon my dream. But it's not just me: it's every lone creator.

I've resolved to boost every post I see from creators seeking help. I hope the rest of you will do the same.

Thanks.


1. Finish writing Children of the Dark and have it ready to go shortly after Cortex Prime comes out.
2. Launch my Patreon.
3. Get my Games+Learning initiative off the ground.
4. ???
5. Profit.

Huge thanks to @potatocubed for a copy of his game, Pigsmoke! It's the first (of hopefully many more) contribution received for the Midway University Initiative! ^_^

There's nothing worse than cold-emailing major gaming companies to ask for handouts. Still, I do as I must for the young people in my charge. I might have a budget for the games and learning initiative, but it's not *much* of one. If y'all have things you'd like to donate or know people who would, DM me.

Started working on the mechanical parts of Children of the Dark today. When talents are named things like Fire Walk With Me (fire immunity) and Too Swole to Control (mind control immunity through RAGE), you're perhaps having too much fun. XD

The setting is skin. The system is bone. The interplay between players (and GM, if one is present) is muscle.

I'm so happy to be in my current position. The head of my library has begun the process of okaying a budget to start a tabletop gaming program. Currently compiling a list of best-for-value board games, card games, and role-playing games with an emphasis on games that teach. Excited but nervous. It's my first big professional initiative!

Okay, leftover takikomi gohan is now officially one of the few foods that's just as good reheated. I'm vaguely surprised.

Almost 6000 words into the novel project I started working on over the weekend. Feels good, man. I don't know if this one will go anywhere, but for the moment, it's cruising along pretty well.

Opinion: "Wonderful Christmas Time" is not the worst Xmas song ever written only because we live in the timeline where "The Christmas Shoes" exists.

Children of the Dark: A love letter to World of Darkness and Clive Barker's Nightbreed where the player characters are people who can transform into monsters from their own nightmares to fight in the defense of the world.

Guardians of Light and Dark: A novel about a secretive line of monster hunters who use dark magic to enhance their abilities while risking corruption. My wife described it as "HP Lovecraft's Sailor Buffy."

Hey -- we're looking for new voices for Eclipse Phase. Sock me a message to adam@posthumanstudios.com if you want to be sent the writer solicitation for an upcoming short (word count and deadline ;) ). Eclipse Phase knowledge required.

Man, thinking about it now, how many different games have I played in the last 25 years? Several dozen at a minimum, and only that few if you collapse down all the variations on given systems to their most basic form. Like, should having played classic WoD's Vampire, Werewolf, Mage, Changeling, Wraith, and Hunter count as one system or six, given their differences? What about having played in four different editions of Vampire? All three editions of Exalted, plus homebrews and hacks? It's tough!

GURPS, weirdly enough. It was a high fantasy game in a world with both magic and psionics. I played a mute telepath. It was... okay. I would probably not have played RPGs anymore after that, except that I found out there was a Ninja Turtles RPG, and I was HUGE into the TMNT at the time. I didn't wind up playing any D&D until I'd been gaming for like 3 years. First game I ever ran was Shadowrun, which I got into because of the Sega game.

Scrolling through random morning toots is certainly better for my mental health than the Angry Bird.
