Kraken Dice and Realms of Cthulhu: An Unholy Union

Sep 5th, 2012 | By | Category: The Dirt

If you don’t have Realms of Cthulhu yet (and why don’t you), let’s correct that behavior. Go ahead and jump over to our friend Tracy’s slice of the internet at Sand & Steam and check out the great deal we have going on. You buy some cool dice and get a discount on a book you need for your collection anyway. You need dice, so why not get some of these while the getting’s good? And, guess what, this will entitle you to a super deal on Realms of Cthulhu to boot (did we say that already? Yeah. So what. […]



Fabled Environments Kickstarter!

Aug 28th, 2012 | By | Category: The Dirt

Our friends at Fabled Environments make killer maps, so when Charles asked if he could post this on our forums, I said no. I told him we’d feature it on the front page. Is it just me or would this work really well for Agents of Oblivion? I can already think of a few scenarios off the top of my head for this (but I have been watching a lot of Flashpoint lately…) Take it away, Charles! Fabled Environments: A Two-Story Mall for Tabletop RPGs  This Kickstarter is for a .PDF of a map of a 100 store, two-story mall that is over 750,000 square […]



T3: the tremulus trailer teaser: Let the Countdown Commence! Launch date August 27th!

Aug 21st, 2012 | By | Category: The Dirt

Hello All! We are officially counting down the days until the launch of tremulus on Kickstarter. It will go live next Monday, August 27th. Of course, we need your help. Please spread the word around that our storytelling game of lovecraftian horror is coming. While we have a nice, tidy video to go on Kickstarter, we also wound up with this video which is more of the extended dance version. We thought it a pity if you guys didn’t get a chance to see this. Props go out to Justin Suzuki, Lyn Harm, who were instrumental in making this whole project really […]



Agents of Oblivion is ENnie Nominated!

Jul 13th, 2012 | By | Category: The Dirt

    Okay. I’ve been really busy lately. It’s been hot. I’ve been writing. And doing lots of playtesting of tremulus, but that’s not what I’m hear to talk about today. I’m hear to talk about Agents of Oblivion. We have been nominated for best supplement and we’re in some impressive company. Chaosium, Steve Jackson Games, Wizards of the Coast, and Hero Games? Seriously. I’ve been playing games from some of these fine companies since I was a kid. And now, we’re being spoken of in the same breath? This is gratifying to say the least. The deal is, while it would be totally sweet […]



The Withering Heat and the Trembling Hand: More Talk of tremulus

Jul 5th, 2012 | By | Category: The Dirt

I’ve been derelict in posting for a handful of days due to the horrible heat which has been sweeping across of lot of the country. Now, I have been working away, busy scribbling down materials for tremulus. The thing is, after that, I am markedly exhausted. I’ve been putting in long days, and I’ve thought to hit the RWR the first thing in the morning, but I have been so excited to work on this project, everything else has been pushed over to the side. I’ve been getting in playtests as often as I can. I’ve been having conversations with folks. […]



tremulus: A Departure from the Norm

Jun 13th, 2012 | By | Category: The Dirt

For a while now, I’ve been making overtures and allusions about expanding my design skills into other systems. Granted, these comments have been vague, nebulous, and amounting to walking around the fringes of a map. The fog of war generally hangs heavy over my work. And, yes, this has been intentional. Earlier today, I began posting tantalizing fragments and frantic vignettes about this new project, this new work, which is near and dear to me.  If you’ve been following along, you’ll know I’ve been hashtagging things throughout the day. What I am here to discuss with you is tremulus. tremulus is a […]
