    Working Backwards: 50 Years of …

    Recently I released the final deliverable for my Raiders of the Serpent Sea Kickstarter campaign (The Raiding Seas!) As I wrap up several years of work on this TTRPG campaign it has led me to reflect on the huge impact Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) has had on my life. Even as I wrap up work on Raiders, I am currently busy as a contractor doing fun things on another exciting roleplaying project (and the reason I have this work is because of my previous work at BioWare). This project is likely what IÔÇÖll be busy with for the rest of the year and is sure to lead to new opportunities…

    Raiders of the Serpent Sea – Physical Copies

    Hello, again. This will likely be my last post about the original Raiders of the Serpent Sea RPG project over here as we have fulfilled most of the Kickstarter commitments and print and digital copies for those who are not backers, are now available!

This is primarily an update regarding Raiders of the Serpent Sea (which I generally update via my Kickstarter) but I figured I’d provide an overview here while I prepare the next, more formal update over there). I am still deep in the race & class design for the player’s handbook portion (so that I can get that into playtesters hands sooner than later). Once complete I’ll resume writing on the game master’s guide (which I’ve still poked at while working on the player details) and will continue with the other…

    Good Tidings!

    I hope all is well for those of you still stumbling onto this blog. (Well, I mean I hope everyone out there is doing well, not just those who come here to read my words….) So… I do have an announcement to make. But not today… not quite yet. Stars are still being aligned, courses charted, that sort of thing. But soon. I do have a few things to chat about today though… After a very long departure window, I have left my position as senior technical lead at NAIT (a polytechnic in Edmonton). It was a wonderful experience that allowed me to learn many new things. Our team at…
