Hello Thick Skullers!
Welcome to 2015! I wanted to give you guys a couple of updates on the latest news.
TSH-005: The New Funnel Adventure finds a new home
I’m pleased to announce that TSH-005 will not be published after all… at least by Thick Skull Adventures. After some discussions with Mr. Joseph Goodman, I’ve been contracted to deliver that module for publishing through Goodman Games! This is very good news as I’m excited to see one of my adventures get The Full Treatment in terms of art and layout from The Man himself. I have a couple of playtests coming up on the adventure – one at Game Kastle Fremont next friday, and Judge Jen Brinkman will be running it at GaryCon, but I can’t say much beyond that until it’s officially published.
Late in 2014 I was fortunate enough to be invited as a guest on 3 podcasts. They were (in order of air date):
- Spellburn Episode 33: with Judges Jim, Jen, and Jeffrey (Jobe took the day off). This was a nice bookend to episode 31 where Spellburners reviewed Stronghold of the Wood Giant Shaman.
- Drink Spin Run episodes 4.1 and 4.2: with drinkers/spinners/readers/runners: Adam and Donn. Ironically, Judge Jobe was also a special guest on this episode so I did get to chat with him, just not on his usual podcast.
- PodKastle RPG Episode 1 with Podkastler’s Ray and Rueben. Ray owns the GameKastle stores out here in the Bay Area and has been invaluable in my involvement in gaming (all the way back to introducing me to the game in the 70s, and encouraging me to publish the 2010s.)
Gam3rCon: While not officially published yet, I’m 99% sure I will be running the aforementioned module previously known as TSH-005 at Gam3rCon 2015 in San Diego. I’m already pretty confident that +Bill Meyer, +Mario Torres, and +R.S. Tilton will be joining me at the table as they have in previous years (and I’m 100% certain that Jim Graziano will be there) but there will probably be room for at least 1 or 2 more players if you’re going to be in San Diego on July 10.
Celesticon: I’m also going to try to run the same game at Celesticon during Labor Day in Fremont, but i have to do some schedule wrasslin’ with the girls’ mom for that weekend so that’s less of a sure thing.
And finally, I’m just finishing up a side project with some Familiar Names of the DCC RPG community. It’s going to be fun & exciting and I can’t talk about it yet, but I just playtested the first round of it last weekend and it went smooth. So, assuming, this project and THS-005 happen, 2015 will be the first year in which I’ve published (at least!) 2 projects in the same year. Woot Woot.
