Jazzed to be talking about writing and making games at Orcacon in Bellevue, Washington this weekend. Orcacon's a spunky, regional show willed into being by Donna Prior and her cadre of miracle workers. Yearly its focus is on creating safe, welcoming game spaces, but more so on inclusivity and amplifying diverse voices.
This weekend I'll be roaming the show (aka, haunting the bar) and speaking at the following events.
6:30 - Writing and Story Development for Games
5:00 - Technology at the Game Table
6:00 - Something at Work in the Soul: Horror in Tabletop RPGs
7:00 - Queer as a Three-Sided Die Presents: Queering Your Setting
Here's my complete bio and schedule, along with links to more details.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
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!
