The Kickstarter for “How to Write Adventure Modules That Don’t Suck” has so far made over ten times it’s initial funding goal! If you want to get a copy there’s still 8 days to go. Highly recommended for all tabletop RPG nerds!!!
I recently drew over two dozen cartoons for this lovely little book called “How to Write Adventure Modules that Don’t Suck”, being published by Goodman Games. The book has a whole bunch of advice from some of the greatest RPG writers in the world. It really is a must-have for anyone even thinking about running a game. The advice it contains applies to all kinds of creative endeavors, and life in general. It just launched on Kickstarter and already made its funding goal, so go order your copy now!
You can see some of my cartoons on the Kickstarter landing page, here are a few more:
I’m thrilled to announce that I will be hosting a very exciting “Masters of Webcomics” panel at the upcoming Silicon Valley Comic Con next month (http://svcomiccon.com). The show is the weekend of March 19th-20th, and the panel will be on the Sunday, March 20th, in Room 2 at 12:00 noon.
Many of the panelists were guests on the first season of my “Masters of Webcomics” podcast, which you can find on iTunes and at MastersOfWebcomics.com. They are: Shaenon Garrity (shaenon.com), Amber Greenlee (panel2panel.com), Jonathan Lemon (lemonworld.com), Jason Thompson (mockman.com), Jason Shiga (shigabooks.com) and a special mystery guest (the attached flier will give you a big clue as to his identity — and no, it’s not Matt Daemon)!
This being Silicon Valley, I’m also going to attempt a live digital ‘satellite linkup’ with my co-host, Adam Prosser (phantasmictales.com). Also, my good pal Don Howe (linkedin.com/in/donhowe) reckons he knows how to record the whole thing for playback in Virtual Reality! So it’s all going to be incredibly stimulating.
I’ll be exhibiting at the con (booth #96), with copies of my Pewfell graphic novels, my boardgame “Legitimacy“, and children’s puzzle book “Wizard Pickles“. The con is expected to sell out, so get your ticket now!!!!
While on vacation in Mendocino County last week, I was delighted to discover a fantastic new game store in Fort Bragg called “BlaqkDoor”. It is a very modern start-of-the-art game and comic shop with an excellent selection of the latest boardgames, comics, video games and collectibles.
The staff were all super friendly and helpful, and the owner, Scott, is a very likable guy, who I chatted to for ages about my favorite subjects: boardgames & comics.
I was glad to see he had a copy of Minion Games’ “Manhattan Project” on his shelves, but he obviously hadn’t heard about such other gems as “Those Pesky Humans”, “Tahiti”, “Grave Business”, “Nile” or “Battle Merchants”, not to mention the greatest boardgames of all time: “Legitimacy”. So, I rectified that fact by chewing his ear off for half-an-hour on the subject of how those all are far superior titles from the same publisher!
Anyway, now you have no excuse at all not to go to the Mendocino coast for you next weekend mini-break.
