As Good A Day As Any

Apr 1st, 2014 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

Above me, at this very moment, a trapped wasp buzzes angrily. He thinks he kisses the sun, but he kisses a neon tube that, could it emote, would likely be quite annoyed by the wasp’s attentions. It is April 1st, Fool’s Day, and I thought about resuming my posting yesterday, but I was too bound up within the lush languidness of a gentle spring day. I wrote. I reflected. I researched. As I have been doing since last we spoke, yet some of the footfalls weren’t meant for your ears at all, though I’ve made progress down the roads to […]



Where is My Mind?

Nov 8th, 2012 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

Hello All! I have chosen a random day to resume the regular writing of the Razorwise Report because trying to schedule it has met with little success. Well, in all honesty, the scheduling has been just fine (adhering to said schedule has been another matter altogether). Why is this? Here are a few possibilities: 1. My attempt to master space and time has failed. 2. There is no internet connection ____________. (I’m sure you can come up with something infinitely entertaining to place there.) 3. I broke my fist punching a brick wall (or something equally hard and unforgiving, like […]



Getting Graphic (No, Not Like You Think)

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

Another crazy week wraps up as we prepare for the tremulus Kickstarter on Monday! While you wait, why not snag some nifty wallpaper? And, guess what? I’ll be entering the crazy world of podcasting. I’ll be joined by Justin Suzuki for the debut of the show. This episode will focus on some of the finer details of tremulus. Beyond that? Who knows? It has no set schedule, set plans, or particular agenda other than to be illuminating and entertaining.  



The Eagle Has Landed

Feb 15th, 2012 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

Nestled away in a warm room here in Thornton, Colorado (which legend purports was actually a small thorn mining town in the early 1800s) with the Blessings. We are talking shop and about things I cannot say. Yet. I will mention they are talking about the future of The Game’s The Thing. We are just kinda chilling and chatting about what tomorrow may bring. We may play a game of Fiasco (specifically Innsmouth Confidential), but who knows? Maybe I’ll surprise them and show them the hardcopy of Agents of Oblivion. Until next time, I bid you, dear reader, adieu! P.S. […]



Upcoming Topics (or Not)

Feb 8th, 2012 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

Today was a hugely busy day and I’ve got some upcoming commitments, so I can’t tarry long here today, but I didn’t want to miss saying hello! So hello! There are a few topics I want to talk about. Which would you like to hear me talk about first? If you have suggestions, as always, post them. In no particular order: 1. Con prep 2.  Getting meta (breaking the fourth wall, using other techniques in play) 3. GM Tips 4. Design tips Low and slow. That is the tempo. If you have any questions or want clarifications, let me know […]



A Word About the Razorwise Reports and Teasing Hints to the Future

Jan 12th, 2012 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

Not to get too meta, but I’m going to talk about the Razorwise Reports and what’s been going on with them. They began as a way to get my thoughts out there (or on your screen) in an effort to better connect with the fan base. My written work is not exactly who I am, but I’m not trying to give you a biography. Rather, I’m providing an insight into my day to day, workaday life of a writer, publisher, editor, layout artist, and game designer. Yes, I used the word layout artist. Do you have something which sounds better? […]



Sometimes, I Get a Good Feeling

Jan 6th, 2012 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

This week saw the return of me back into the full swing of things and I approached my work like a meth-fueled berserker wildly wielding a battleaxe. I tore through my objectives with acumen, style, and grace. In other words, I did my job. My seat didn’t hit my office chair until yesterday, however, and I was secretly dreading it just a bit, like you do when you go on a diet or resume an exercise regimen or what-have-you. It’s the initial return, not the work itself. It’s, perhaps, the concept of being able to do the work and wondering […]



Recharging Batteries (Literally and Figuratively)

Dec 2nd, 2011 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

Today, I’ve been playing catch up in the reality I’ve found myself. Last night I had extreme difficulty sleeping and stayed up until 3 (or so) in the morning watching episodes of DS9 on Netflix. (I’ve mentioned my recent attraction to watching all the Star Treks, so there ya go.) When I did get up, I had already planned to take care of a few loose business ends (and I’ve managed to handle most of those) and spend a goodly part of the day doing all the mundanities a carbon-based life form must. I’ve done at least a million loads […]



Convergences: Endings, Beginnings, and Random Threads

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

Today, I wrapped up the last of the Elder Mysteries for Echo of Dead Leaves. Before you put on your cultist robes and begin singing Kumbaya or Ia! Ia! or some other scary chant, there is still work left. Connective tissue and other bits and pieces must be put into their properly moldering places. I admit excitement and a touch of jubilation.  This is a notable achievement as I wracked my brain to craft each of these Elder Mysteries to work within the confines of the setting, to integrate well, and, most importantly, not be repetitive or derivative of one another. […]



Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

Nov 28th, 2011 | By | Category: The Razorwise Report

While I am quick to share personal insights, it is passing rare for me to get completely personal. We all have our ups and downs and human strengths and frailties and I don’t want coming to Reality Blurs to be a bummer. There are plenty of spots to get a dose of reality. Right? Here, I like to entertain, enlighten, and share through witty introspection and random fits of wisdom. However, some of you might wonder what has recently happened to yours truly, so I’m going to give you a snippet of my life, and then we’ll move on to […]
