It’s been a wild and wooley few weeks and it’s kept me away from the blog. During GenCon I was busy shooting interviews with the Google Glass and catching up to people I never get to see otherwise. (More on that in a future post.) Then within 48 hours of getting home, right around the time I was finally successful in making the Post-Con Fort Save ™, I got an offer to be the new community manager for Savage Mojo. Of course I accepted. The quality of their works is obvious, and they’ve treated me very well as a designer working freelance.
Another big attraction was the meta-setting. Suzerain takes you into high level play that can hop genres, time periods, and alternate realities as desired. For a long time fan of Amber, The Eternal Champion, Dr. Who and other fiction of this type it made for a nice match. My ten years on Planewalker demonstrates how much I love multidimensional adventuring.
So here we are. It’s a little over a week before I have to battle my 48th birthday and I’ve found a solid position in the game industry. One that should allow me to continue to freelance as well!
In a serendipitous turn of events it is also #SavageSeptember on DriveThruRPG, so I get to give you, my readers, a gift to celebrate.
From now until the weekend is over you can find some of our finest works, the ENnie award winning Shanghai Vampocalypse and Millenium Knight among them, on sale for a whopping 60% off! Savage Suzerain, the one book that ties everything together, is listed as Pay What You Want for the entire month as well.
In a nod towards both my Planescape roots and Spock with a beard we have also made our Quantum Sliders series of pan temporal, pan dimensional adventures available as a bundle. (Which is one of the 60% titles as well!)
Lastly I am proud to announce the release of Machine of the Lich Queen. Not only is is an old school, killer megadungeon but it also exists in its own demiplane! Even more fun, for me at least, is the fact that I did all the Pathfinder rules development for it. The first book I’ve done solo, as opposed to being part of a team.
Swing on by and take advantage of the savage discounts while they last! I’m really proud of my new gig and even if you’re not a Savage Worlds player there is a ton of stuff that be inspirational or can be adapted to another system. The framing fiction and the visual art alone on these volumes makes it worth it.
Don’t take my word for it, go see for yourselves!
