Stuff I’m Writing Elsewhere. Politics, Fiction and Education

Between moving house, working on freelance website copywriting projects and just enjoying the summer (now fall), I haven’t had as much time for creative writing, but I seem to be on a bit of an upswing. Here’s a little taste of what I’ve been up to:

Enjoy!

How to Find Out Stuff in RPGs

Published by under RPG gaming

For those who care about such things, I wrote a quick brief on how to find out stuff in the Savage Worlds RPG system.

This is one area that really differentiates Savage Worlds from old-school systems like classic D&D, in a good way.

A Time to Kill

Published by under RPG gaming

Over at Savage Games, I blogged about the ethical conundrum surrounding killing player characters in RPGs.

You can always just ignore the dice when they mean murder. But if you take away the genuine possibility of extinction, the game isn’t quite as much fun.

On the other hand, it’s sad when people cry.

Stuff I’m Writing Elsewhere. Creationism is Bunk, Podcast with a Feminist, Lizard Wizards, Dagon and More

This summer, I’ve been a bit less focused on my creative writing and a bit more focused on just… well, enjoying the summer. That said, I’m still up to a whole shwack of goofiness on the Interwebs. For instance:

Political Stuff at The Propagandist

RPG Gaming Stuff at Savage Games

Cthulhu-themed Stuff at Detectives vs. The Slime Monster from Outer Space

Business Stuff at WRITEIMAGE

Still haven’t gotten around to reading the two greatest novels in the English language? Boy, are you in for a treat.

  • The Detective vs. The Slime Monster from Outer Space. Cthulhu fans, you’re going to like this one. Also, anyone who likes cheesy sci-fi and detective pulp fiction, or preferably both. Available in trade paperback or Kindle eBook.
  • A History of the Middle Eastside. The Middle East we know and love tolerate is a tough neighborhood. Well, the Middle Eastside is even tougher. Can Uncle Herzl and his plucky gang of Yids hold out against the Muj gangsters that want to throw them all into the harbor?

Enjoy your weekend, people!

RPG Gaming in the Land of Oz

Published by under Fiction,RPG gaming


My friendly crew of dedicated Tuesday-night RPG gamers has begun a new adventure GM’d by yours truly: Savage Land of Oz, a home-brewed Savage Worlds module set in the fantasy world that apparently is coming back to the big screen sometime soon.

I’ve written some fun little short stories based on the gameplay thus far, in which my buddies have taken over the roles of the Tin Man, Scarecrow, Lion and… some shmoe named Prince Ozra whom I’ve thrown into the mix. If you’re a gamer, these may be of interest:
