In what must qualify as one of my most egregious oversights I realized I didn't post here about the g+ community for my upcoming title Nimbus/das Sonnenrad.

The game centres around a hand-picked group of investigators forced to confront what sacrifices they would make for the greater good during the darkest days of the Second World War.

If you're interested check it out.

Lastly, apologies to people getting this twice. There's quite a bit of overlap between my "personal" g+  and my Hazard Gaming one. In fact if you'd like to add me in a gaming capacity you can find me here:

If anyone needed another reason to hate the personalities behind Duck Dynasty I present

Surely this is the best illustration of how morality should not be confused with religion.

Hello g+ folks and designers in particular. Someone has created a card based RPG called FAITH currently on kickstarter. I've got a huge favour to ask.

I know that US copyright law does not protect game titles but the fact that they've called it FAITH in all caps just like my game seems a little on the nose. 

Quite apart from any simple search they would have done on Google I also own faithrpg and so to me it is inconceivable that they did not know of my existence.

I don't think there's anything I can do but I wonder if anyone that is a redditor could at least upvote the post I made so that they might at least recognize publicly that I exist. 

It's been a pretty heartbreaking couple of days. I love FAITH and I'd like to fight for it to, at least, not be forgotten altogether.

Interestingly the name of their rpg company is Burning Games.

UPDATE: Firstly, thanks for everyone who upvoted my comment and thanks for your largely constructive and polite comments to Burning Games.

Burning Games and I have at least begun a dialog. I'll add more details as things progress.

+Sean Nittner and +luke crane got together for the delightful Narrative Control 80. They were even nice enough to mention Victoria, albeit as being designed by someone who'd been living under a roleplaying rock or stumbling from the wilderness but I'll take it. It's hard to argue with the truth.

Now get out of mah h-te-amels ya varmints!

Nothing's new as they say. I'm still in a state of flux regarding where to go with my latest short form game.

I've noticed a bunch of people adding me recently, so to them, I offer the opportunity to try a play-test of my new game. The offer, of course, still stands for those long-time followers.

To get the game private message me your email address.

Hello there new circler people. I think +Zak Smith is responsible for the sudden influx of people adding me to their circles. 

Zak's a splendid fellow and you can hear some of his incisive thoughts on a couple of episodes of Penny Red.
