Hello World! (Is that still what the cool peeps start with?)

I'm R.E. Davis aka "The ChaosGrenade". When my brain circuits aren't overloaded I like to write tabletop games, write about games, or pretend I still have the energy to someday run another game.

Let's see if Mastodon will be my new "scroll hole" or if I'll neglect it like my Steam library!

We drove a couple hours up to the city and this was my haul! I got ripped off on a couple of these but I have no regret owning any of it. My kid was super spoiled today though -- walking away with quite a few children's books, toys and a Mario board game all his own.

We got to eat Pho and catch up with old friends. It was hot, and my AC went out mid-trip, but we had a great day.

Tonight I get to play CAIRN! I love that all we were told was "Just roll up characters and everything emerges in play." Our characters know nothing of the world they're dropped off in.

My character is an outlaw with a gravelly voice, weathered looks, and a chiseled face -- so I plan on channeling Michael Wincott for this

So, earlier this evening, my 4 y/o son and I were in our back yard when he happened upon a large mushroom. I cautioned him not to touch it, but he did get down at eye level and said hello to it. Definitely my kid.

Using this to pass on to new friends here another free of mine... SHROOM GOONS. Tiny myconids on big adventures!

Another night spent fixing weird hiccups with my website instead of working on new stuff. I dig GoHugo but trying to hold on to old WordPress posts has been a PITA.

Pretty much wound up taking down everything from 2017 and earlier. Got it all backed up, so I guess I'll be sifting through and seeing what's worth restoring. At least my latest work is working fine.

Thanks to "NeuralNoise", SIGIL & SHADOW now has system support on Let's-Role VTT!

Ended up having to cancel plans to game tonight due to parental exhaustion. To distract myself from feeling bummed out, I'm kicking around some loose setting/genre hacks for this little system I hacked together at the beginning of the year.

Enjoy a free game, Mastodon peeps.

So, yes, I'm sharing this to self promote a game I'm proud of. But it's also a good excuse to test how my website headers will look when I share stuff in the future 😁

Anyway -- Sigil & Shadow is my RPG toolkit for urban fantasy & occult horror.

I had the pleasure of both running a playtest group with this game and playing in another playtest group and both games were brilliantly fun.

Now James' GOZR is prepping to be Kickstarted by Peter Regan / Squarehex - the same guy who prints James' Black Pudding zine and who ran my own Book of Swords campaign.

This is going to be awesome.
