This month is all about endings and new beginnings.

Metatopia has just gone by and I'm all about getting the projects I'm working on into good shape. I've got great writing I'm doing and projects to finish up freelancing. Plus? Team Outlaw is now moving out of New York for the first time and heading to the beautiful Jersey City. It's the first time I'm moving out of New York City, and I'm a little stressed about that. But what else is on the agenda?

- Freelance writing
- Kickstarter fulfillment

That time has come to gird up thine self and have a heck of a month. I'm excited and ready to see some fantastic endings become great new beginnings, for projects and a new period in my life. That's not to say it's not going to be a little hectic, but that's how things seem to go here, at the end of a harrowing 2015.

Hi folks! I'm proud to announce that Phoenix Outlaw Productions has our first publication out on Kickstarter and it's a Fate Core setting! 

Smoke and Glass is an steampunk fantasy setting for Fate Core, set in an industrial city built on the bones of a ruined magical kingdom. It's a game of adventures under smoke-filled skies, down in the gutters and running the rooftops over the homes of the wealthy.

Author Abigail Corfman has not only created a whole new sandbox city in Kroy, but she's created new skills for the Fate Core system, a new magic system, and a whole new Class system for the game. 

So come and join us in backing our first Kickstarter! We've got great stretch goals plans on top of the great rewards but to get there, we need your help. Thanks for reading!

Thank you so much for writing this. This mirrors effectively how I've gone thru gaming for years. I'm so sorry you have to go through this, but for a selfish reason, it feels good to know someone else goes thru those places too.
