See Mephit’s Work on City of Dangers!

I’m here today with some insider industry knowledge… That’s blogging industry, not the gaming industry or anything. While I’ve been writing Star Trek Adventures material on Continuing Mission for a while, I’ve also got plenty of ideas about City of Mist and I’m publishing them with the inestimable Tony Pi on our new City of Dangers blog.

Dreams as Setting

Recently I sent my Invisible Sun characters to the Deeps of Sleep, a realm of nightmares and forgotten dreams. The reasons aren’t important but it did give me a chance to think of how to make a setting seem like a dream.

Small and Forgotten Gods Generator

One thing that I didn’t spend a lot of time on in my Wanderhome review was the “small and forgotten gods” of the setting. On the one hand, they’re small spirits that add a “Studio Ghibli” vibe to the game. On the other hand, they’re a really endearing part of Wanderhome that deserves some extra attention.

Bedtime Heroes Part 2, Villain Basics

Welcome back for more Bedtime Heroes! Last time, I talked about how to make characters for kiddos to play superhero archetypes and today I’ve got some more info on making villains for them to face off against. As with a lot of my projects this has ballooned a little. Originally I hoped to get all things villainous into one post but this one’s being split in half. Look here next Tuesday for the exciting sequel!

Faces of Satyrine: Wayne Reynolds

It’s time for another edition of Faces of Satyrine! The first time I did this, I looked to the work of Tony DiTerlizzi whose Planescape work made it not much of a stretch to get to Satyrine. Today I’m looking at another fantasy illustrator whose work is instantly recognizable: Wayne Reynolds.
