Games I want to run post-GenCon...

Aberrant revisiting and playing around with concepts from my previous successful Aberrant campaign with the benefits of years of hindsight (and superhero design and media).

Chill (third edition) adapting some classic adventures along with the new material, torn between either a modern setting with lots of history or a "Penny Dreadful" style revisit of SAVE's Victorian-era founding.

Dungeons & Dragons (fifth edition) continuing my "Out of the Abyss" playtest campaign.

Earthdawn using the newest edition of the game from FASA and revisiting some of the lore of my first successful Earthdawn campaign (much of which worked its way into official products) maybe in a "next generation" style or format.

Space: 1889 using the Savage Worlds edition and material from that book and other 1889 resources. Maybe with the addition of psychic powers, magic, eldritch horror, and/or Castle Falkenstein style mythic elements.

Torg: Eternity based on the recently announced relaunch of the game (my game group's Torg campaign was one of our best ever).

So ... who wants to pay me to become a full-time GM...? ::sigh::

I eagerly backed the Earthdawn kickstarter and then, the more I thought about it… just built a hack of the setting into Dungeon World instead: http://divnull.com/blog/2015/seed-fourth-world/

Oh, hey! Here's another D&D thing that I've been secretly working on with Team Green Ronin and Wizards of the Coast. It's got some fun, nifty stuff in it!

My gaming group played the hell out of this game in its first incarnation (indeed, it was one of the key campaigns that brought together the two groups that formed our current group) so I'm really looking forward to what this new incarnation of TORG will bring!
Cinematic alien fighting from "The Other Roleplaying Game" makes a return as new German owners step into English language RPG publishing.

Wizards and GR are collaborating? (Or whatever word may be appropriate, co-producing? ) Sounds like a good thing for content consumers out here.

It's the final #Titansgrave Tuesday of Season One. Robert J Schwalb and I worked on two separate chapters that ended up being combined into one big finale. Hope you like it!
Join game master Wil Wheaton as he guides Aankia (Hank Green), Kiliel (Alison Haislip), Lemley (Laura Bailey), and S’Lethkk (Yuri Lowenthal) through the last chapter of Titansgrave: Ashes of Valkana. The party has finally passed through the portal activated by the Staff of Forlorn Hope to find themselves in a land permeated by evil and chaos. Our heroes venture forth to face their final enemy, but what exactly awaits the group as they make their ...

My "home base" for Gen Con this week is booth 1509, the HQ of Green Ronin Publishing and Geek & Sundry, which is where you'll find me when I'm not off the show floor for a meeting, meal, or seminar. Come by, check out all the cool stuff, and say hi!

Find Me at GenCon!

It’s that time of the year again, when everyone in the tabletop gaming industry tags everything on their to-do lists as “must be done before” or “can wait until after” – GenCon! I’ll be in attendance for what will be my 25th GenCon, by my count (I’ve…
