"Every Friday is Black and Every Day is Friday" Sale (and announcing Elemental Mysteries in December)

If you’re the sort who likes a little more black in your day, either the Darkness beyond the veil or the darkness of interstellar space, we have the sale for you!

During our “Every Day is Black and Every Day is Friday” Sale, you can acquire for yourself (or give as a gift!) anything in our catalog for a very nice price.

All things Modernity:

You don’t have much time until the Darkness consumes everything. Enjoy it while you can. Fight the Darkness, if you dare.

For the forward-looking avant-garde, our Starcrossed pre-order edition (includes Chapter 001):

You don’t have much time until the Successors conquer everything. Enjoy it while you can. Claim your birthright, if you dare.

In other news. . .

Both color and black-and-white editions of Modernity are off to the POD provider for approval. It’s taken longer (and lot more learning) than I hoped to get this far. For those of you patiently waiting for printed versions, thank you for your continued saintly patience. The good news for future products is that I’ve learned the hard way what many of the limitations are and adjusted my workflow to streamline the process and avoid future friction in the interests of getting what you want produced and out the door.

I am hard at work this week on Iniquity (The Seraphim Conspiracy, Book 1), the first novel in the Modernity universe to be published early next year. And more importantly, I am putting the finishing touches on Elemental Mysteries that brings a new twist for wizards to Modernity, along with all their stunts, skills, artifacts used to manipulate the five elements of creation, as well as all the elemental denizens you need as a coordinator to make their lives hell. Elemental Mysteries will be coming to your favorite game retailer (and mine) in December. Here’s a preview of the cover art (work in progress):


As always, please keep your feedback coming: good, evil, or otherwise. I’m here to make the games you want.

Pay What You Want: Modernity (Fate Edition) Coordinator’s Toolkit

Today I’m happy to share with you Modernity coordinators a dozen pages of tools that will help you terrify (and satisfy) your players.

This pay-what-you-want product is an interactive PDF designed for use by coordinators with the Modernity (Fate Edition) RPG. The PDF has two modes: a printable version and an electronic game tracking version that you can use in realtime at the game table.

The Modernity (Fate Edition) Coordinator’s Toolkit contains the following:

  • Game Briefing Sheet (front & back)

  • Hero Briefing Sheet (front & back)

  • Session Briefing Sheet (front & back)

  • Scene Briefing Sheet (front & back)

  • Rules Briefing Sheet (front & back)

It’s up to you as the coordinator to stay organized, focused, and on track with the story to enable the best possible (read: scariest) experience for your players all throughout the game, because. . .

It is up to your players to . . . Fight the Darkness.

This toolkit is for the edition of Modernity based on Fate Core. It is fully compatible with other Fate Core products. All minor variations are documented in the Modernity (Fate Edition) book.

Dear Parents/Teachers, you were wrong!

I love my parents dearly. However, I am going to issue a HUGE nyah-nyah in their general direction today. Along with all those teachers who told me to stop daydreaming. Science says you were WRONG! Heh.

Smile with tongue out

Daydreaming man
Daydreaming while working on complex mental tasks may not be such a crime; a new study suggests it can actually enhance mental performance. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/284393.php

p.s. Please do NOT tell my children or team members this.
