Wereoctopus: Final Image

The final sketch for the wereoctopus (aka: the Teuthix), one of my contributions to Bite Me! The Gaming Guide to Lycanthropes, from Misfit Studios. Still no official word on whether or not this will be one of the minis produced in association with the guide. Either way I'm very excited to have one of my creations become a part of such a great product.

Exciting News!

In addition to working on the Gamers' Guide to Lycanthropes, two other third-party projects of mine have been green-lit for production! I can't say much more than that for now, but one will be a Kickstarter project later this year (or possibly early 2014).

Keep an eye out here, TwitterFacebookGoogle+, or just ask me next time you see me and I'll keep you in the loop.

For those who don't know, I'm writing the Magic and Mundane chapter of the lycanthrope guide, but I've also contributed material to other chapters as well, including the new races. Check out this concept sketch for my wereoctopus from artist Scott Harshbarger. There's even a rumor it could be made into a mini!

Monte Cook Interview

So, this happened:

For those readers who are drawn here for non-gaming reasons, let me explain.

Way back at the end of the 20th Century, Monte Cook, Jonathan Tweet, and Skip Williams were tasked with renovating the world's first roleplaying game for the 21st Century. I'm not sure what they were expecting, but what happened was a revolution in gaming. Monte Cook has gone on to become one of the most respected men in the industry, producing countless supplements, standalone products, campaign settings, games, and even a web series. The quality of his work and his undeniable geek cred has garnered him a following that pushed his Numenera RPG Kickstarter to somewhere north of half-a-million dollars!

Monte Cook is a man I admire. Interviewing him would be a thrill. Being interviewed by him? I don't even have words.

Actually, yes, I do.

Thanks, Monte.
