It's been so thrilling to receive your messages about books and ebooks arriving! Thanks for your faith in this project, an your enthusiasm the final product--I couldn't be prouder of how things turned out!
I wanted to take a moment to tell you about a new project I've been working on, and send you a longer-form short story to read!
But first, here's a new multi-media short story I posted last month that I wanted to share with you!
The new project
I’ve always wanted to make a tabletop RPG, and over the past year I got to do that as part of a team of the most talented designers, artists, writers and nerds I’ve ever met. Seriously. This team has done work for Magic: The Gathering, D&D, Shadowrun, Bethesda, HBO–this is the big leagues. An actual bucket list item for me.
This morning we launched our Core game engine on Kickstarter.
I haven’t felt this excited since the first time I picked up a D&D rulebook at a garage sale when I was 12 and realized OH DANG, I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS TO CHANGE MY LIFE.
I could tell you about why I think EMBERWIND is going to change the game for tabletop RPGs (modular rules that are noobie and veteran-friendly, options for GM-free play, customization out the wazoo, awesome stories), but I basically already put all those arguments on the Kickstarter page.
Instead, I’m just going to say that I’m so goddamn proud to be part of this team, and I hope you’ll take a look, and consider pledging or sharing the link with that nerdy friend who never shuts up about their D&D character. Because I think we have a game that’s worth getting that excited about.
Here's the campaign I helped write and design. If it's your kind of thing, I'd love for you to take a look and maybe share the link!
The longer-form short story
I had the pleasure of writing a horror-adventure short story for EMBERWIND about an ill-dated expedition to capture an elusive creature on a mysterious island. I had SO MUCH FUN with the tone and the creature design on this one, and got to work with artist Toma Feizo Gas to develop artwork and a stat block!

Thanks so much!
