I'm kicking off the new Pathfinder series from Dynamite Comics: Runescars! Together with veteran Pathfinder author and regular co-conspirator James Sutter, we've got a tale of vengeance and ancient magic that takes the Pathfinder heroes to Korvosa—the setting (and approximate time) of the Curse of the Crimson Throne Adventure Path. When a murderer starts stealing the skins of Varisian sorcerers, Seoni (also a Varisian sorcerer) comes to find answers and end the slaughter. Along the way we learn more about Pathfinder's iconic sorcerer, butt heads with ruthless Hellknights, and learn what songs the sewers sing.
The Past: As of May 19th 2017, I am no longer editor-in-chief at Paizo Inc. It's been an amicable parting as I move on to new schemes. I've not yet been public about what those new projects are, but it's all been positive so far!
The Future: That said, if you have any neat writing opportunities you think would be up my alley or want to discuss any of my past or future work, please feel free to reach out to me!
Additionally, I will be at a few conventions in the near future, including:
Gen Con - August 17th–20th
PAX Dev - August 29th–30th
PAX West - September 1st–4th
If you see me around, be sure to say "hi!" Or, if you'd like to nab me for something, shoot me an e-mail.
Thanks to everyone for all the kind words, interest, and support!
In what's nothing less than a dark dream come true, I'm blown away to have had the opportunity to write a Pathfinder tie-in to Hideyuki Kikuchi and Yoshitaka Amano's legendary Vampire Hunter D. The product provides an overview of D's dark fantasy world; a new Pathfinder RPG class, the Vampire Hunter; rules for making characters in the vein of D's adventures (including options for having a fiend possessed hand; a new type of vampire; and a short adventure that thematically ties into Stranger Comics's Message from Mars series.
Boundless thanks to Sarah Robinson for making the book look incredible, to Amanda Hamon Kunz for her signature superlative development work, to editors Judy Bauer, Chris Carey, Josh Vogt, Joe Pasini, and Jessica Price for making me not sound like a damned fool, and to Erik Mona, Scott McLean, and the crews at Unified Pictures and Stranger Comics for setting up the project and for having me along!
As an unabashed fan of Hideyuki Kikuchi’s work and Yoshitaka Amano’s art, this was an absolute honor to write—sharing a credits page with them is still sort of unbelievable. Over all, it really ended up being something special and I hope all you Vampire Hunter D: Message from Mars backers dig it!
