Rassler, an 8-bit pro wrestling RPG

A retro-inspired pro wrestling role playing game I've been working on, set in the territorial era of pro wrestling (the 60s-80s more or less). It's pay-what-you-can and will be forever. [more inside]

The Neverending Conflict

A dark fantasy YA serial fiction and game design website. I'm writing a story about teenagers who fight monsters on an alternate Earth where the existence of magic and monsters is an everyday fact of life. The most basic elevator pitch is "What if, in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, everyone knew Buffy was the Slayer? And also there were many Slayers, and everyone knew about all of them?" There's a lot more to it than that, of course, but that's the basic idea. I'm also working on a game based on the 5th Edition Open Gaming License of Dungeons and Dragons set in the same world. I hope it proves to be a fun distraction from what ails you. [more inside]

Mobile-Friendly Compendium for Eclipse Phase

Eclipse Phase is a cool (if crunchy) tabletop RPG that mashes up post-singularity science fiction, survival horror, and enthusiastic transhumanism. The folks at Posthuman Studios have released it under a generous Creative Commons license that allows the community to expand, remix, and experiment with even the "canon" materials in the books. To that end, I've built a giant online compendium of every skill, power, character trait, creature, piece of gear, weapon, location, faction, NPC, and pregen character in all of Eclipse Phase's published books. Nerrrrrrrrrrrd.

Blade & Crown

A tabletop, pen-and-paper fantasy RPG, Blade & Crown balances 80s realism and indie narrativism. It's a gritty, somewhat crunchy system, with lots of detail, twelve characteristics, a skill list, etc. But it's also strongly influenced by modern, indie games, so there are lots of active enticements for players to take control of the narrative, put their characters into adventurous situations and help immerse everyone in the game. It's already available as a PDF at DriveThruRPG, and a print edition should be following soon.

Fake War Stories

Whenever a group of gamers get together, there's always a period of swapping crazy gaming stories. Role-playing (tabletop or LARP), war gaming, FPS--everyone has a funny story to tell. We decided this would make for an awesome collaborative writing project and we're asking people to submit a short tale. We've already gotten a number of pretty funny ones.

RPGWrite - an inspirational writing tool

RPG Write is a tool to help you beat writer's block, by giving you RPG-style incentives when you write. We've all been there, stuck playing an RPG for a few more minutes, "just until I level." Many of us have been grinding that last bit of XP when we should have been writing! Rather than fight it, we've decided to cave to the compelling nature of RPGs!
