Hey Google+ it's been a while! Thought I'd tell you I had new releases in games. I contributed to the Skaa: Tin & Ash supplement for the Mistborn RPG, which is available now.

BUT... BUT...

I also wrote an adventure for D&D 5E called Battle for the Undercity, which is made possible through Wizards of the Coast's DM's Guild. 

Hee.

I've finished my latest progress report, which is now available for you to read on my blog. I'm taking a Twitter/Facebook sabbatical in September (which also includes G+, since I don't spend a ton of time here). But for now, the update!

+Christopher Gronlund Breaks are necessary to mental health, especially given how toxic the internet has become. Eesh.

Happy to announce today that I have signed with Red Sofa Literary.
Jennie Goloboy and I are fine-tuning my proposal for a nonfiction book filled with worldbuilding games geared for writers. I couldn’t be happier about this development, and I’m looking forward to working with Jennie on this. More news as I get it.

Happy reading!

IMHO, it takes a very, very special love of a fan to create something as awesome as this.

Technically I'm off of my second or third social media hiatus, but now that I'm back I'll be online less than I was before. The negativity has really gotten to me, this time around, and in the past few weeks I have had a complete 180 in mood and all things. As an artist, I need silence, that freedom to not say but to listen, and the ability to create without an audience watching or I seeing them.

I suppose this comes from my many years of being a performer, but you know? When I used to practice for hours on end, I didn't need/want an audience, and I don't need one now. All I need, is the room to practice, and thanks to a wondering, loving, and supportive group of friends and loved ones, I have that. Now, it's up to me to make them proud.

Completely understand the negativity/ hiatus thing. Do what you have to do.

Today, I wanted to let you know that I've decided to take a step back from the Conan RPG as project manager. The extremely talented Jason Durall will be taking my place, and he's working with our REH experts and systems team to finish up the corebook. I did contribute some setting-related material to the corebook as a writer, and I've been invited back for the supplements. I wish the team well, and am lucky to have worked with such wonderful people. 

In the past few weeks, I've been overwhelmed with the receipt of over 400 applications for new writers, 95% of which were women, that wish to contribute to the line. I can assure you that there is plenty of work to be done, and there are a lot of supplements planned for this line. Before I depart completely, I will finish sorting through those e-mails and provide a long list of recommendations to the rest of the team. I have also had three requests from other game publishers for the list of applicants and, pending approval from the applicants themselves, I'll be sharing their names with other companies who also which to expand their creative teams, too. Please know that this [e.g. sorting through the applicants] is a responsibility that I do take very seriously, and no one has been forgotten. Everyone will be sorted via e-mail, and my plan is to finish those efforts by the end of next week.

With all that said, I have a few "Thank you's!" to mention. First, I want to thank Chris and the rest of the team at Modiphius Entertainment for being so welcoming and supportive. You've all been fantastic to work with, and it's my pleasure to know such talented people. Second, I'd also like to express my gratitude to everyone who applied, and I'm very appreciative of your patience as I sort through your e-mails on top of trying to get projects out the door. Last but not least, thanks to you, Dear Reader, for continuing to be supportive of my work and my efforts.

Should you have any specific questions about the game itself or Chris's plans going forward, I'd like to direct you back to the company website and its contact page at: www.modiphius.com.

Posted a wrap-up of the Writing 101 advice from our panel at Geek*Kon. Figured it might help inspire some of you. :-)

News from GenCon 2015 is that I'm developing Hunter: the Vigil 2nd Edition for Onyx Path and the Conan RPG based on the literary works of Robert E. Howard for Modiphius. I'll be taking my first dev pass on the manuscript for the Conan RPG corebook in a few weeks.

Thankfully, being a developer allows me to exercise different parts of my brain to write and edit more than I normally do, and I've got some fun announcements in the pipe. I've got one more local con this year, and will be focusing more on sticking close to home. Here's hoping this year ends on a high note--nowhere to go but up--and I look forward to collaborating with the great and talented minds I'm bringing on board to rock the house with these games.

He wrote part of the setting, yes. We had several writers working with our Conan experts to bring different aspects to life.
