A Marathon, Not a Sprint

Jun 5th, 2013 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

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 [...]



Camera Obscura

Apr 18th, 2013 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

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!

April Showers, Dark Matters, and Black Dawns

Apr 10th, 2013 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

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 [...]



A Day in the Mines

Jul 19th, 2012 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

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 [...]

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 [...]



Missive 33: Oh Canada

Jun 28th, 2012 | By | Category: The Mad Lab

Here’s the thing:  I never get to play.  Usually I’m the Director.  My friend Jerry and his 19 year old son Brandon have come up to visit and Jerry wanted to run Agents of Oblivion.  We’ve played a lot since last Sunday and I thought I’d share our missions with ya’ll. My character’s real name is Christopher Gaines.  He was a lanky, nerdy kid in high school, but when his innate power (Disguise) developed he really blossomed.  He was recruited into Oblivion by Agent Emerald, a raven-haired beauty with blazing green eyes.  Emerald was a pre-cog and was developing a [...]



Short Sessions: Crafting the Two-Hour Mission

Jun 21st, 2012 | By | Category: The Mad Lab

Agents of Oblivion immediately struck a cord with me, and by reading this I assume it has already done so with you as well. It was a world I wanted to involve myself in with further, I wanted to play it on a regular basis and allow me to weave my stories of intrigue and the weird together. That desire to run AoO became stronger when I was assimilated by the Blur and donned the uniform of the Tech Ninja. The curtain had been pulled back and I was allowed to see what the Mad Lab was building behind the [...]
