Weirworld–Part 6 The History of Krollis, Burden’s Price

Before His Radiant Highness ascended to the Throne and the Krithali Empire fell, Krollis teemed with diverse faiths. Jungle dwellers sought power from the trees and animal spirits. The hard men of Krast worshipped an Iron Lord, a man literally made of iron that feared nothing and vanquished his foes with heat and hammer. Educated […]

Weirworld–Part 5 The History of Krollis, Rise of a Holy Empire

Fell creatures and toxic miasma slowly drowned the High City.  Those not killed outright by creatures or the evil ooze…changed. Armor of black chitin, razor claws, Godlight-powered strength and endless blood-thirst claimed good men and added to the carnage. This was not the worst though. A tiny few, the strongest of will and body retained […]

Weirworld–Part 4 The History of Krollis, The Birth of Burden

Hubris breaks good men on a rack of certainty.  Certainty in their cause, their faith or sometimes their altruism lead a good man down a dark path. Herrick’s tale is one of self-sacrifice, willful blindness and utter devotion to the good people of Krollis.  In the quest to empower all of Krollis Herrick broke the […]

Weirworld–Part 3 The History of Krollis, The Rise of the First Krithali Empire

Weirworld’s history turned out more complex than I anticipated, so I split it into two posts. This initial post covers the rise of the First Krithali Empire up to  the beginnings of the great experiment that would twist the world and give rise to His Radiant Highness. For millennia thriving in a river valley surrounded […]

Weirworld–Part 2 The Geography of Krollis

As part of the my ongoing effort to flesh out the “Weirworld” recursion for “The Strange,” todays post will cover the gross geography of Krollis. I originally thought that the history of Krollis made more sense as the next post,  but quickly quashed the idea in favor of giving readers a better idea of relative […]

Weirworld–New Recursion for “The Strange” RPG. Part 1

“Weirworld” is my original game world I am adapting  for “The Strange” role-playing game as a recursion.  Originally I thought to publish it as a stand-alone role-playing game, but some research into the nightmare that is game publishing (in terms of cost, especially for original art and printing) made this a non-starter. So I adapted […]

Gencon 2015 Hotel Registration–The Housing Hunger Games

Every year my cohorts and I stand by, waiting for the nanosecond that the Gencon reservation system allows us to book rooms. We all press the button and surge forth to fight off the hordes of gamers trying to get in the system first and score prime hotels. Every year, we do really well and […]

My Tenuous Optimism Towards The Singularity

Recently, a trend has reemerged in cinema regarding artificial intelligence, probably the third cycle since the early 70’s. From HAL and Joshua to Agent Smith, films–and to a whole populist science fiction–remain transfixed on the idea of computers gaining sentience and subsequently going out of their way to make us regret it. They gain emotions […]

Ten Candles--The Tragic Horror RPG Kickstarter

Ten Candles–The Tragic Horror RPG Kickstarter

“Ten Candles” is the first role-playing game kickstarter from Stephen Dewey and the premise sold me immediately. Everyone dies at the the end of the game. Always. There is no last-minute reprieve or deus ex machina to save everyone. All the PCs will die, but how you face that end is what matters. A darkness […]
