Heaven's Shadow FREE for a limited time only!

To celebrate the impending release of Hulks and Horrors, I am for a limited time dropping the PDF/EPUB version of Heaven's Shadow to exactly zero!  That's right, from now until H&H goes on sale, the digital version of Heaven's Shadow will be completely free.

Head on over to DrivethruRPG and give it a go! Be sure to leave a review!

Hulks and Horrors is off to the presses!

It is my privilege to announce that Hulks and Horrors Basic Black Edition has been sent to press, and barring any unexpected issues, will be ready for release very soon, likely in no more than a couple of weeks. My apologies that I can't provide any more concrete release.

At release, the PDF will be Free, so everyone can get a gander on it, and the print version will be at a special introductory price of $10.

I hope you will check it out as soon as it's released, and in the meantime, you can take a peek at the Basic Black cover below.

Hulks and Horrors interview on #rpgnet

Hello everyone!

Progress continues on Hulks and Horrors. I've had a slight set back as I had to switch software in order to get a more consistent layout, but the book is now complete and my next task will be the design of record sheets for characters, sectors, and systems.  After that, a cover design.

I can also confirm a title: the Basic Black Edition. This name evokes one of my other favorite old-school games as well as the size and unadorned nature of this first release.  Hopefully it will be followed by further expansion in times to come, but right now I felt it important to assemble and get it into players' hands the best way that I can: giving it away.

Also, I've just today completed an open interview on the #rpgnet IRC channel conducted by the inestimable Dan Davenport. I lay out the familiar details, discuss some of the feel and inspiration for the work, my attitude towards house ruling and how I've designed H&H to support it, and I even did a little on the fly demonstration of the results of the random system and civilization naming system. Take a look.

Release day approaches soon, and I look forward to it being in player hands!

Hulks and Horrors now complete!

It is once again my pleasure to announce that I have actually finished something! This evening I have finished writing the DM advice chapter of Hulks and Horrors, as well as the layout. I want to give it a full read through again for editing purposes and clarity, but it is otherwise complete and ready to see print in its present form.

This brings me further to the release plans. My potential publisher has informed me that he will not be able to consider H&H for production until next year at the earliest. I have decided instead to continue on with Hulks and Horrors as a Bedroom Wall Press label project to join Heaven's Shadow.

Because I have a non-existent budget for this release, this will come in the form of an art-less version of the core book as presently written, in both PDF and print-on-demand. Because of the low-budget nature of the release and because I want to get it into player's hands for feedback, the PDF of this release will be free of charge for the first month, and the print version will be a mere $10. This will go up some time within the next few days, as soon as I have a cover and inside cover design I like.

Stay tuned to this space, and I'll have further announcements as soon as the game is available!

It is my pleasure to announce that Heaven's Shadow is now available in print.  I received my proof copy and was most satisfied with the results, and approved it for sale right away.
