Cooperative Storytelling can seem daunting at first look - particularly if you or your players are new to RPGs. However, with the right techniques it can be a breeze.

What is cooperative storytelling, and why is it the new black?
I've found that since stumbling onto this style of GMing, I simply haven't looked back. There's nothing else that floats my boat quite like this! :)

It's true, I'm obsessed with Japanese castles... and rightly so! They are amazing. If you've ever been interested in them, then you may like this vid.

One of the things I heard from a lot of backers who answered my survey, was that they wanted more content about the setting of Infected, as well as how to get the most out of the Immersion RPG rules.
So, here's my first article to fill that need. And there will be more! If you have some ideas of your own, please do let me know. I'd love to hear from you!

What were samurai castles like? How do they compare to European castles? Were they effective, and how did they work?
Find out more about some of the most interesting fortifications of all time.

IT'S OFFICIAL! Hot on the heels of Infected! going to print, we have an announcement of one of our next settings.
The God Forge is unveiled in this beautifully illustrated video by none other than my co-writer and co-creator +AJ Pickett (aka The Mighty Gluestick).
Interested? Puzzled? Perplexed?
Check out the video. It's a doozie, and it gives a great teaser of what this setting is all about. Really I couldn't do a better job of describing it than AJ, as he's the one who has the science wrapped around his little finger. I listen in awe and just tell him to keep writing! haha

My very first History Rant! Who were the samurai? It's a deeper tale than this video can go into - but there are some things that you may find really interesting. I know I do!

Death is good! Valar Morghulis!
But seriously, it's an excellent GMing tool, and is a vital key to making immersive and really intense games.
What do you reckon?
