Check out the first chapter of the forthcoming Iron Empires graphic novel: Void.

Then go back it on Kickstarter! :)
I posted the entire first chapter of Iron Empires: Void. Read it and let us know what you think. Are you excited for chapter 2?

Ran my Understate set-up at our local con this weekend, ably assisted by +Patrick Henry Downs handout; and it was well received.

The con does a lot of systemless stuff so this was a bit of an experiment. The organisers are keen for more though - victory!

(also picked up a design award, but figure that it really belongs to the players and Vx. ;) )

This trailer gave a serious AW-in-Space feel. It is uncannily like what I imagined the "prior history" of my current AW-in-space Touchstone to be like.

Hawken, a mech FPS game from indie outfit Adhesive Games.

Great sounds, nifty visuals of cityscapes, and some nice explody mecha gameplay.

Can't wait! :)

Please answer YES to question 60 in the Census tonight! We are collecting this stuff, let's let it be used!

Kids, do not open a new tab if you are using Chrome to complete the Australian Census online - it seemed to automatically time me out.

(I had to check how much I earn - leave me alone! I just got promoted!)

More nerdy game stuff... (I will work out a circle for this any minute now... but most people in any of my circles are game-people so the urgency is less...)

I want to make a Forged Lord/Lord Steward based on this guy (the Regent from some Dishonored concept art). That nice austere look, very Gonzagin!

Nerdy videogame stuff (again)

The Elder Scrolls idea of "thu'um" (the voice, stormvoice) has always appealed - probably due to its Gloranthaishness. Now it is revealed that the Nordic users of the voice are actually Orlanthi draconic mystics! Or something like that. ;)
