World of the Lost edits are finished, and Lusus Naturae printing is underway. I've spent the past couple of days playing board games and eating ice cream. I guess on Monday I'll start my next project. Maybe I'll finish that new vampire/werewolf novel. Maybe I'll get back to work on ViewScream 2E. Right now, I am watching my kid wreck the kitchen with some kind of bizarro art project, and my dog is snoring in a patch of sunlight.

There's a monster in Lusus Naturae (I won't say which monster) that casts spells which are anagrams of existing spells. Actually, that's not entirely true, but it's close enough for our purposes; if you've read the book, you know what I'm talking about. Anyhow, here are some anagrammed Cleric spells:

♥ Anti-magic shell = A latching slime
♥ Bestow curse = Obscure stew
♥ Cause fear = Feces aura
♥ Cause serious wounds = Nauseous crow issued
♥ Control weather = Rectal hero town
♥ Cure disease = Arise, seduce
♥ Cure light wounds = Wight cloud runes
♥ Cure serious wounds = Ruinous curse sowed
♥ Detect evil = Vetted lice
♥ Dispel evil = Devil's pile
♥ Dispel magic = Medical pigs
♥ Enthrall = Hell rant
♥ Forbiddance = A forced bind
♥ Heat metal = Meat lathe
♥ Heroism = Shoe rim
♥ Holy word = Hydro owl
♥ Insect plague = A seeping cult
♥ Invisibility to undead = Oily bait, divine nudist
♥ Protection from evil = Force violent import
♥ Remove curse = Move rescuer
♥ Remove fear = A forever me
♥ Resist cold = Sliced, rots
♥ Resist fire = Strife's ire
♥ Sanctuary = Scary tuna
♥ Spell immunity = Immensity pull
♥ Tongues = Guts one
♥ Turn undead = Tundra nude
♥ Word of recall = Crawler flood

34 years after its production, this film will finally get a theatrical release. During the filming of Roar:
> Jan de Bont (director of Speed and Twister) got his scalp ripped off (220 stitches).
> Actress Melanie Griffith got her face torn up and almost lost an eye (50 stitches).
> Tippi Hedren (actress, The Birds) got her leg broken by an elephant and then a lion bit her neck (38 stitches).
> 67 other members of the cast and crew were injured.

Writer and director Noel Marshall said, "You’re fine with lions and tigers as long as you don’t show any fear. The problem is that the plot required us to show fear. These animals who had learned to respect us were totally confused when we started acting terrified."

Oh my stars and garters. This trailer:

My novel is on Boing Boing! Which is really nifty. "Good and bad are blurred, and we meet a rainbow of disturbed supers dealing with the realities of their powers." I love the idea that in my universe, a group of supervillains is called a rainbow.

I have found that death metal album covers make excellent reference material for my sci-fi RPG sessions.

A new review of my monster manual
"Lusus Naturae is one of the better horror gaming aids I've ever seen... It's also deliberately, sometimes extremely, offensive -- and on pretty much every possible level. There was shit in there that skeeved me out, and I used to work as a search engine tester."
Three years ago today, I opened this nerdy little candy stand, averaging a post every five days. Cool. Let's celebrate by getting into Lusus Naturae, the first explicit (and boy is it..) Lamentatio...

Ever heard of Krell Labs? It's a top-notch movie review site, written by +Christianne Benedict. She's also an RPG artist, and we're collaborating on something evil later this year. Well, she got in a wreck, and now she's in danger of losing her home: http://www.gofundme.com/rtn2j7g

Check this out: if you donate to this crowdfunding effort, send me a private message, or just post here, and I'll send you a download link to PDF versions of my monster manual, Teratic Tome, and my OSR sourcebook, Obscene Serpent Religion. Feel free to share this post with anyone who might dig it. Thanks!

p.s. Here's her kickass list of horror flicks (it's the first in a 5-part series, all worth checking out of you're a gorehound like me).

Hi everyone, This campaign isn't for me, it's for my best friend Christianne Benedict. She doesn't know I'm doing this and there isn't much time, so I'm going to get down to the nitty gritty. Christianne's been dealing with some hard times for, well, the last several years. She doesn't talk abo...

Sheeeeet! I am in Financial fuck-up at the moment and can't pay many of my bills so I wanted to try to help a person in similar situation. But amount I thought I could donate (more a gesture and support) was too low :(

Wanted to give what tiny amount I got, but couldn't. Still' great to see how many have helped her already. Go good people go!

As usual, J-Rag is calm and reasonable.
Patrick Stuart & Scrap Princess' Fire on the Velvet Horizon and Rafael Chandler & Gennifer Bone's Lusus Naturae have redefined the monster bestiary for role-playing games and have basically made every single other such book b...

how about on Critical fail versus Wyvern scale...  you see those you knew who you killed or harmed in the past appear and move towards you, revenge plainly written in their faces..  they approach bearing awful knives and hooks...

Introduction
I've been writing video games since 2003. I also create tabletop RPG books (including Teratic Tome, ViewScream, The Starship From Hell, and Pandemonio).

Author of two novels: The Astounding Antagonists, a tale of supervillains looking to pull of the ultimate heist (and maybe save the world in the process); and Hexcommunicated, an urban fantasy novel set in a world of cybernetic werewolves, undead spies, and Lovecraftian WMDs. Both available at Amazon.

Feel free to add me to your circles! I'm especially interested in (and often post about):
  * Tabletop role-playing games
  * Comic books
  * Horror novels and movies
  * Urban fantasy
  * Sci-fi TV
  * Daikaiju eiga
  * Metal (thrash, death, and black)
  * Video game development

Not interested in political discussions (unless you're talking about the power struggle between illithids and aboleths) or conversations about religion (unless we're discussing Cthulhu worshipers).
Bragging rights
Lectured in Moscow. Pitched a video game in Paris (successfully). Worked with Fear Factory on a video game soundtrack. Scored a 10/10 RPG.net review from Christopher W. Richeson. Author of The Game Writing Handbook, which was a finalist for the Game Developer Front Line Awards.
