Much like a fish unaware of the water in which it swims, I posit you are adrift in an ocean of ideas at any given moment. It all depends on how you choose to look at things, how you contextualize them. Look at things through a macabre lens and those scissors resting on the edge of the night table take on a different aspect than they might otherwise. What you have to do is exercise your imagination. What are the extremes you can take a concept, how far are you willing to go. Once you know the outer boundaries of […]

I posted this on Facebook, and other places, but I felt it really belongs best here. There’s been something on my chest for quite a long time, and as a private person, it’s difficult enough to share with friends, let alone the whole of the internet. But today I have. It’s in response to folks questioning me about some particular products, but the underlying question is what’s really going on with my company, Reality Blurs. Here, finally, I shed some light into the dark corners. If you want to comment, please go to the original forum thread here. Until […]

Writing takes imagination, organization, and determination to do it well. There is the initial rush of an idea, a concept, and then there is the deliberate execution, and then there is the polishing the requisite number of times to make it shine. If you write cleanly, and have honed your craft, the rewrites are not insufferable. In fact, they’re that one last opportunity to make good better. Some folks are happy with good enough, however, and that’s not where you want to be. While I, for one, appreciate the economic pressures of the real world, things take time, and it […]
A mad mix of secrets and shadows was my today. Darkness rising from the East and staying that way. Rains ever lurking just out of sight. The day, the long day, one truly long night. Until next time, I bid you, dear reader, adieu!
Greetings Agents! Thanks to Trigger’s work and patience, we’re happy to present the definitive Oblivion character sheet (available in two versions). You’ll also find (for a limited time) the Director’s Screen available for free. All this stuff is located in the Free Downloads section. That is all. Until next time, I bid you, dear reader, adieu!
Today there was a scattering of real rain drops amidst scattered metaphorical storms. Sleep was fleeting last night, but I had enough reserves to work through a haze, fully awakening mid-afternoon while I worked on some Ravaged Earth materials, fine-tuning the layout for its imminent release. In other matters, I’ve been working through the stretch goal materials for tremulus, doing the requisite research and brainstorming such matters take. Needless to say, my mind is adrift with dark matters of all sorts. The madness grows. And, in conclusion, I’m working on something you can really sink your teeth into for Agents […]
Today, I had a simpler day than yesterday, but nonetheless quite busy. I managed the tremulus playtest group. Some of our playtesters have already started playing the game and it will be exciting to find out where they take it! I reviewed some beautiful incoming art pieces for Ravaged Earth: Second Edition and it is simply phenomenal. And then I managed the usual rigamorole of catching up with an assortment of emails, and then it was on to laying out the next One Shot for our ENnies nominated Agents of Oblivion. Yes. You should go over there and vote. Voting is now open! I tinkered with a few […]
Howdy. As you might imagine, I’m thrilled at our Ennie Nomination for Agents of Oblivion.

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 […]
