Hero DxD


Work continues on my latest (and I believe greatest) RPG ... a superhero genre rules lite game that uses a variation of the Five by Five die roll. I have recruited a bit of help to try to make this the finest production that I can. I am teamed up with writer Michael Curry who is contributing the game's text based on my design. 

Mike has written a couple of non-fiction books, but what's even cooler for me ... he and I played D&D together in high school!

And Darrel Miller to do my art! I had purchased clip art from Darrel on RPGNow.com and reached out to him to make sure I was being true to his copyright. We got to chatting over email and now I have commissioned Darrel to do all original art for this project. I am including some samples below.





I have also recruited Chris Vogel who edited A+ Fantasy for me to do editing chores on the book. I am going to make sure the game design does what I want and try to pull everything together as a sort of publisher / editor in chief ... and I am really excited about what's coming.

The game system is clear and easy and dynamic. It does superheroes without falling into the traps that I think many superhero RPGs fall into. I continue to invest a huge part of myself, my time, energy and personal resources into this project and I have high hopes for the end results.

Just wanted people to know that I am still here ... and that Hero DxD is on the horizon.

Con Man - Tudyk and Fillion together again!

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/con-man/x/10149170


So someone asked me why they needed to support "Con Man" when they have already surpassed their funding goal. Well, it's important because this is a show. Shows only succeed if people watch. So there is that. Plus, the funding goal was for the production of 3 episodes, but Alan Tudyk has written enough material for around 12 episodes. More money means more episodes. Plus this is creator owned television programming. This could mean a lot to the future of how we watch television and how we control what gets put on the air and what gets cancelled. This is important life changing stuff. It needs to be as successful as possible. The modest funding goal is nothing compared to the millions of dollars that get pumped into television series by the networks. We really have to pull together and show the networks that we want to have a say in what we watch on TV ... and if they won't listen then we will just produce the shows ourselves!!

Please, support Con Man. And even if you can't do anything financially share the link and spread the word.




Thanks!!

Keep Flying!
