Welcome!  I'm setting aside a Collection here to post a character a week for different tabletop role-playing games (in a general imitation of +Matthew McFarland's Character Creation series) in an effort to keep my creative juices... juicy.

Unlike most of my Collections, Characters Without Players will be opt-in due to the somewhat idiosyncratic subject matter and sometimes mature content, and you'll need to Follow it specifically if you'd like to see updates.  I hardly wish to inflict my horrible prose on unwitting subjects!

If I appologized, it wouldn't make it all unhappen.
It wouldn't make the darkness go away.

Neil Gaimen is a beloved modern author, and Mirrormask is one of my favorite children's books.  The movie version, done in association with The Jim Henson Company, is a wonder to watch.  It tells a symbolic Alice-like story of a young lady caught between joy and tragedy, family and freedom.

Likewise, his novel Coraline (goo.gl/J7bvlJ) is a modern day Grimm's fairytaile, with a stop-motion animated version that makes you feel every thread of the Other Mother's tender love and care.

Both are great to listen to, and can be finished in a single afternoon!
Check out this great listen on Audible.com. Raised in a family of circus performers, Helena's always dreamed of leading a more ordinary life. But when haunting music draws her...

Here's my putting money where my mouth is, which kickstarters/indiegogo campaign I've funded and their current completion status.  By and large, I haven't experienced significant issues receiving rewards from campaigns, but pretty much every videogame I've contributed to has run long, and in some cases, veeeery long.  Still, it's always nice to find a magical package in the mail with a book or game that wouldn't have even been made without croudfunding!

+Tom Scott yeah, I loved the mistborn books. . but I only borrowed them, refused to buy them.  after rereading up on his "be nice but explain the problem from a mormon perspective" kinds of statements. . .I feel like my enjoyment of his stuff is forever tarnished.  I'm sort of curious how well the rpg system might work.

So, Patrick Rothfuss's The Kingkiller Chronicles (beginning with The Name of the Wind) is in talks for a movie deal.

I may squee.

That is all.
 
I'm heading down to gencon, and this blog has my schedule.

Also, if you live around Indianapolis, I'm doing some off-site events where you can see me too.

Furthermore: This blog has news you might not have heard elsewhere.

In closing: Draccus!

You'll like this if: You enjoy deckbuilding games like Thunderstone, Nightfall or Dominion, and a dash of pulp adventure flavoring.

I've been playing Zeppelin Attack! from +Evil Hat Productions with my buddies, and I have to say that it's an extremely well done game.  Players take turns as villains deploying their aeronautical apparatus to the battle, then playing minions from those ships to recruit others, attack the opposing forces and defend from attacks in turn.  

In addition, there's both a boxed expansion, Doomsday Weapons
(goo.gl/gGaciy) that gives each player a custom ship and mega-weapon to purchase as well as more recruitable cards, and also a  print-on-demand Meddling Fools (goo.gl/cFVebp) mini-expansion for a few dollars that provides a different optional power each turn.

I very much recommend you pick up a copy and give it a try with your friends as well!
