Such a great cause ;)
 
My new novel, The Dead Hamlets, has a trailer! The book officially goes on sale tomorrow, so please share the video. Let's knock Fifty Shades out of that top spot!

I'd do almost anything to knock Fifty Shades of Sanitised, Middle-Class Porn off any spot.

What game/system would you use to capture the feel of Borgia (the Netflix series)?

Burning Wheel: argumentation is as combative as fighting. Most fights are simple one and done affairs. Who you know is modeled with a Circles skill, and buying someone who hates you costs just a bit less than someone who loves you

You can build any sort of late medieval type person, from a governess, to a church alcolite, to a farmer, as well as stuff like noble born and priests

Rules question:

The Level 5 Elf benefit "Master" states that a bow "counts as longer range than all other missiles".

I believe this indicates that a ranger who is master of the bow would count Attack vs. Attack as a versus test even against other bows.

Is that correct?

Follow-up question:
What do you think of this rule to add a bit more granularity to weapon ranges:

For each increment of range your weapon is greater than your opponent's (melee -> short -> medium -> long) you may add +1D to Maneuver in capture, drive off and kill conflicts.

I finally got around to incorporating all the playtest notes into my Ars Magica hack, Wizard World.

I've updated pretty much everything, including substantial refinement of the covenant, companion and harm rules. The page count is down by a little over 10%, which is definitely the direction I want to go.

If you've ever wanted to run a long campaign based on the exploits of powerful wizards, this just might be the ruleset for you!

Let me know what you think!

Hilarious.
I might actually be able to read 50 shades if I imagined it like this.
"Oh Myyyyyy"

"If you're interested in glamorous celebration of hyper-competence and sexuality, this is the game for you."

Thanks to a prompt from +Christopher Stone-Bush, I just revisited my James Bond AW hack, Agent World. It hasn't seen enough playtesting to be considered a finished product yet, but it's fully playable and I'm very happy with the way it captures the genre.

If you get a chance to check it out, please let me know how it worked for you. Enjoy!

One of the best articles I've seen that explains why Google+ is so appealing (to me, at least).

The reason I like Google+ so much is that I'm very passionate about my interests, and I want to base my social networking around that passion. I also like the provably superior level of the conversations, the obviously superior anti-troll features and the fact that Google+ has zero advertising -- but does have the best photo tools and video Hangouts. Those are all icing on the cake.
The single biggest controversy about social media is whetherGoogle+ is a dying wasteland of non-activity or a hive of conversation and engagement. Mike Elgan is here to explain why it's the latter.

Can anyone point me to some actual play recordings of The Regiment? I'd prefer Colonial Marines, but any variation would work.

Thanks!

Reason #23 I should not become an adventurer:

I've had the book since Kickstarter fulfillment and I just noticed the spider hiding in the stalactites above the title on the cover...

You can take point.

I'm working on the player section of my James Bond hack. What do you think of this wording for one of the player/agent responsibilities:

Piece together the villain’s evil plan. You'll start off with very little information, but you’re brilliant operatives with years of experience and millions of dollars worth of training and conditioning, so most of your speculation will be accurate. Be sure to share that speculation with the team (and the GM).

Introduction

I believe in the power of stories and I try hard to find the best ways to tell them - prose, poetry, spoken word, graphic novels, music and movies. Apparently that's called transmedia - so I guess that's something I'm into.

One of my favourite ways to tell stories is through games. I'm a big fan of RPGs and I enjoy card and board games.

I'm proud to be a member of the board of directors for the Surrey International Writers Conference and I look forward to working with the best and brightest storytellers in every medium.

If I haven't added you to a circle yet, send me a message with the ones you're interested in.
