My complete PaizoCon schedule


Today, less than 2 weeks before Paizo Con begins, they added my last few events to the schedule. It's too late to get all of them into the printed program, but here's where you can find me hosting events during the convention:


  • Skybourne Demo Friday morning, 10:00–11:00 am • Cascade 10 
  • Spheres of Power Demo Friday afternoon, 1:00–2:00 pm • Cascade 8 


  • Spheres of Power Demo Saturday afternoon, 2:00–3:00 pm • Cascade 11


  • Branding, Self-Knowledge, and Doing Your Homework: Thoughts on Beginning Game Design from an Actor's Perspective Sunday afternoon, 3:00–4:00 pm • Cascade 9 
  • Skybourne Demo Sunday afternoon, 5:00–6:00 pm • Cascade 11 


  • Skybourne Demo Monday morning, 10:00–11:00 am • Evergreen 1 
  • Spheres of Power Demo Monday morning, 11:00 am–12:00 pm • Evergreen 1 

The Spheres of Power demos will include a sneak peek of Wizard's Academy, while the Skybourne demos will show off the ship combat systems. Each event is only an hour long to make it easier to slip into your schedule, but depending on the event in question it shouldn't be hard to go over if people are having fun and want to keep it going. 

Even if you can't participate, feel free to stop by and say hi!

Spheres of Power Digital Proofs and PaizoCon


When the events for Paizo Con were announced, I noticed that none of the events I'd submitted were on the list. I asked Paizo and they said that it was a mistake, and my events were promptly put back up. Thus, while it's a little later than usual, I wanted to let you know that I'll be running several events at Paizo Con!

I'll be running a Spheres of Power demo game on Friday, Saturday, and Monday, where you'll not only get to play Spheres of Power with me, but also get the chance to play a bit of Wizard's Academy. I tend to get a bit theatrical when I GM, so expect high-energy dramatics at the table. There should also be some demo games of Skybourne up on the schedule that aren't currently listed; I'll let you know as soon as those become available.

I'm also giving a seminar for aspiring game designers titled Branding, Self-Knowledge, and Doing Your Homework: Thoughts on Beginning Game Design from an Actor's Perspective. It's a frank discussion for aspiring game designers from the perspective of someone who was only aspiring himself a couple years ago, sharing what I've learned along the way. If game design is something you see in your future, I highly recommend you check it out.

Spheres of Power Proofs

Today we got a series of proofs in the mail from the printer, including high-res. copies of some artwork, dummy books (blank books to demonstrate the page, size, etc. of the finished model) and a print-out of all the pages so we could check and make sure everything looks good.

And it looks very, very good.

 I've given them the go-ahead, so now we wait again until they have more to share with us.

Thank you all, and see you at Paizo Con!

RPG Drivethru


I'm not sure how RPG Drivethru works exactly (I think there's a button you can click allowing producers to send messages to you), but It seems a lot of people haven't gotten the email informing them they could download the updated PDF. This shouldn't be a problem though; so long as you have Spheres of Power in your library, you can re-download it now and get the updated version. Once again, if you don't have Spheres of Power in your library, let me know so we can get the link resent to you.

The Complete Spheres of Power


Spheres of Power is officially done. We've uploaded the complete version to RPG Drivethru, and each of you should have gotten an email yesterday letting you know that you can download the complete version from your library (it's updating on and as well, but those might no be up until after the weekend). The book has been sent off to the printer, and unless something unexpected happens, the books should arrive by Gen Con. 

It feels so strange to say that Spheres of Power is officially done, at least on our end. We'll keep you updated through the printing process, but otherwise it's all out of my hands. This means we're back to Wizard's Academy, and in the coming weeks we'll have a lot more to share with you on the different monsters, adventures, and other things you can expect to see in that book.

I hope you enjoy the finished book as much as we have. Thank all of you for sticking with us this long.
