In Invisible Sun, the arabest are a mysterious people who lived in the vicinity of Satyrine years ago. Very little is written about the arabest in the rulebooks (though more is hinted in secrets known to a few) so I thought it would be fun to write a little. And while I’m writing a story for the arabest, why not write four?Continue reading “Arabest Rumors”
The Mephit family has grown again! Dr. James and I are excited to finally meet our third kiddo and I’m looking forward to a future day when I can get a solid player group of just offspring. I’m kidding with that but the Mephling and Little Grue are well on their way to being well-versed little geeks so I expect their new brother to follow in their footsteps. Kid Imix, as he will be known here, is sweet and a wonderful addition to the clan.Continue reading “Meet Kid Imix!”
Today I’m here with my first published fan content for Wanderhome (not counting the small and forgotten gods generator which is more of an online tool). While I love the pastoral default for Wanderhome, I thought I’d explore another option with ocean-focused locations.Continue reading “Ocean Natures for Wanderhome”
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.Continue reading “See Mephit’s Work on City of Dangers!”
I’m back with another addition to my long-running project of Dark Horizon, a hard sci-fi setting that I’ve been toying with for years. I’ve been releasing bits and pieces for people to use as they want and today I’m taking a look at how Character Type fits into the setting with the revised Cypher System Rulebook.Continue reading “Dark Horizon: Tac Character Type”
March is always the busiest month at my day job (boo! hiss!) and so I’m going to give myself a break from the blog for this month. This will let me concentrate on some great new content starting in April and also keep me from getting completely burnt out (which would definitely shut down production).
While you wait, feel free to peruse one of my series such as my Star Trek Online spaceframes for Star Trek Adventures or my series on Invisible Sun (still the only in-depth discussion on the net that I’ve seen). There’s also years of content to scroll back through if you like so hopefully there’s enough to keep you occupied for the month of March. See you back when it’s officially spring!
I’ve been really enjoying working on all the different ship types in Star Trek Online and bringing them into Star Trek Adventures. It’s a fun process to open up different options and to see where there are holes in official and fan-created spaceframes. The posts are scattered around slightly but here’s everything so far.Continue reading “Collecting STO Spaceframes So Far”
Congratulations on making it through twelve months! Tonight’s the night the world turns the page on its calendars to 2020 and braces for a year of ophthalmology-themed jokes.Continue reading “Happy New Year’s Eve!”
Happy end of the year, everyone! I’m busy with family stuff now and you likely are too. I just wanted to say thanks for reading and invite you to take some time to try out new games. Whether you take the opportunity to run some games for kids in your family (like No Thank You, Evil! or My Little Pony) or you try out a new game for the holidays (like City of Mist or Good Society). If you’ve enjoyed hearing about Invisible Sun this year, you might also check out Monte Cook’s holiday gift of $5 to offset the cost of it. Then start the new year with a new game!
Regardless of how you spend it (gaming or, you know, something lame) have fun and be safe!
There are tons of Star Trek games out there and one of the most popular (for good reason) is Star Trek Timelines, a mobile game that’s pretty addictive. The storyline isn’t my favorite (and hardly enters into playing for me) but all the characters are fun to level up and assemble. There’s also missions which are a great tool for Star Trek Adventures Challenges.Continue reading “Challenge Maps for Star Trek Adventures”
