Apparently my Mass Effect: Fate RPG is being considered for removal since it is unlicensed and just "fan work."

I hope the judges allow a quality piece of work to stand on its merits and be judged accordingly.

There should be a fan-work category.

A book I have had no part in is coming out but I thought it may be relevant to your interests. Certainly +Engine Publishing products are known for tackling their subject matter with aplomb and I'm sure this will be no exception!
 
I'm excited to announce​ Focal Point: The Complete Game Master's Guide to Running Extraordinary Sessions, by John Arcadian, Walt Ciechanowski, and Phil Vecchione!

Below is the cover, illustrated by Juan Ochoa with text by Darren Hardy. Preorders should open by the end of June or early July -- it's close!

So many eons ago +Daniel Milne Kickstarted a game, Massive Chalice, and entered in our ASoIaF RPG house details. Here they are, in all their glory, on the Xbox One!

So, I found out last night at our weekly Marvel Dice Masters league that I won 3rd place in last week's rainbow draft tourney. What's notable is that I won 3rd place after forfeiting the last two (?) rounds because I had to leave. It was a school night for my daughter! (And, ironically we were matched up against each other in the first round.)

Word is that had I been able to play I would have likely gotten 2nd or 1st place. I'll try to remember to post picks of the swag cards I scored.

Hopefully the next tourney won't be on a school night and/or significantly shorter!

One byproduct of not being in a regular gaming group for the first time in ~30 years is coming up with a neat character concept...and the realization a heartbeat later that you've no avenue to explore said concept. Yea, someone should have warned me about that one! Lol!

Product of the Year and two other nominations for my Mass Effect: Fate RPG! (/mindblown)

And congrats to to +Martin Ralya and the peeps of +Gnome Stew keeping the streak alive!

I find myself bored by Daredevil. Perhaps it's superhero fatigue but this show doesn't bring anything new to the table. I guess a grittier version of Arrow isn't really that compelling to me but I understand why Marvel needs it.

The characters aren't that interesting, either. Leeland makes me want to stab myself in the eye.

I had high hopes for Fisk but he's not doing it for me. Aside from his moment of weakness with a car door and a head he's not bad guy material. Just broken. He looks like he's always about to cry.

And they don't do a good job with Matt's abilities. The first rule of storytelling is "show, don't tell." Daredevil tells us about his abilities but rarely shows us. It may be budgetary, but a little effort would help a lot. Show us him seeing the bullet or his smelling the perps. Let's see some radar sense in action.

We'll see if I make it through the season.

So the finale was almost worth it. I guess S2 will be Vanessa hiring Bullseye to get revenge against DD? Presume that Fisk gets out.

Nice to see the reference to the Greek girlfriend...

As silly as it sounds, the costume helps. Still want to "see" his powers.

Bioware just released a blank leather notebook. Guess what book it reminds me of? 😉

In a fit of inspiration I had a totally awesome character concept for Marvel Heroic over the weekend.

Arrrrrgh!

Watching Battlestar Galactica which was such a great show out the gate. We used to watch it prior to gaming and that was a lot of fun. My fondest memory was +Martin Ralya predicting the poop ship episode...and they did it.

That and the flashback-in-a-flashback-in-a-flashback episode. Seriously?!?

True, but parking your ships on asteroids and wandering into my gun ranges certainly helped! ;)
