Toil and Trouble

May 24th, 2012 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

This week has been one thing after another and it’s not even over yet. Today, my daughter and I went round and round with Best Buy about her (not very old) computer. What will become of this? Who knows? Not particularly pleased with the first store, but redemption at the second. Fingers are crossed. At any rate, we spent some time at Barnes and Nobles today and checked out books and people while she filled out an app for a possible position with, you guessed it, Best Buy. It’s actually quite amusing on a number of levels. I do think [...]



Me, You, and Witcher 2

Apr 17th, 2012 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

Today, I got The Witcher 2 in the mail. It’s my first video game product to review and I’m anxiously looking forward to compiling my thoughts on the game. I’m going to break it down into initial preconceptions and thoughts on other reviews then my first hour. Then once I’ve gotten a good handle on things. So far, I can say I’m loving it, though I’ve caught a few little typos and had one lock up when I went to access the inventory (for no apparent reason). Comment regarding the controls: some folks say they are weird. They are different [...]



It’s Getting Drafty Around Here…

Jan 25th, 2012 | By | Category: The Dirt

Today, I did some layout work for Zero Sum Reports for Agents of Oblivion. Maybe you guys can get Ed to talk about those? At any rate, it took awhile to get the look and feel to integrate with the existing Agents line and a bit longer to get the organizational structure down. Now, it’s back on Ed’s virtual plate. Since so much of my time was devoured doing that and some other business matters. Let’s see, I also spoke with Eric Avedissian about the status of his Ravaged Earth review 1 and spoke with Sean Patrick Fannon about the status [...]



Insight into Echo of Dead Leaves

Nov 3rd, 2011 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

As I seem to have been doing for quite awhile, I’ve been inching ever onward to the completion of Echo of Dead Leaves and there can be no question that I’ve alluded to it on more than one occasion, so I thought I’d kinda give you some of the cold, hard facts about what’s going on with this project, so let’s get going!   First off, there is a robust Investigator’s Section with some new Edges, some new rules, and new attributes to boot. Slang for the era and equipment and all the usual suspects are found herein. Next, there is [...]



The Platform Matters: System Influence on Setting Design

Nov 1st, 2011 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

This morning, on Twitter, a brief conversation came up wherein we ever so gently touched upon the topic of setting and system. It’s no surprise I was interested in the topic and, while I can write concisely, the space was far too limited to engage in any sort of meaningful dialogue about the nuances of how these two things operate. If you’re here today to hear me rambling about “the creature” or other such nonsensical things, go ahead and check out. We’re going to get all nuts-and-bolts and examine the interaction between these two important facets of game creation today [...]

Plot Point Creation on the Molecular Level

Sep 20th, 2011 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

Today, I contemplated cremation, listened to the tunes of Erich Zann, and researched iron maidens as I continue to work through the side adventures for Echo of Dead Leaves. I have to tell you, it feels like squeezing oranges (granted oranges filled with slime and despair) as these get fleshed out. A lot of work for what doesn’t appear as much content on the surface. You know my work is compressed (like concentrated orange juice to move the metaphor along) and every word packs a lot of punch. That’s a given. What is so time consuming you might ask? It’s [...]



Second Monday

Sep 15th, 2011 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

Today, I was greeted by technological grief. My computer and my phone were both invaded by gremlins this morning. After stomping them out, I got to work a bit later than I had planned. This made it feel like, a second Monday, and emphasized one of the drawbacks of working from a home office without the luxury of techmonkeys to come around and perform magic ju-ju dances over my system and make it all better. I then thought of how much I prefer no longer being in a cubicle and how I used to be one of the aforementioned techmonkeys [...]
