The Lands of Ara Compendium is now available for free here. I had a great time working on the cover and I think Daisey did an outstanding job on the color. Here's a look at the color and further rendered B&W version. Go check it out!

I threw my hat in the ring this year for the One Page Dungeon contest and am pretty excited about it. Not for the thrill of winning, but for the sheer act of doing and completing something. That was pretty rewarding. I tend to be very ambitious about projects and they drag on far longer than they should. What can I say, I'm not a project manager, I'm an IT Architect and such is the way of things. But I digress! I did it! I was pretty happy with what I turned in. Mostly because it gave me a good model for what I want to do in my Basalt Keep adventure. More on that soon I promise! Anyway, here's a look at the artwork that forms the background for my one page dungeon submission. Cheers and happy gaming!
So for various reasons, I feel like social media platforms like Facebook, Mewe, Twitter, etc. don't really do it for me when it comes down to really getting into the nuts and bolts of the TTRPG gaming scene. I mean I really miss the OSR Blogosphere circa 2008-2012 or so and the various social media platforms don't scratch the itch for me the same way the blogs scene did a decade ago (holy crap, has it been that long). There was a great community where the blogs all kind of fed off each other. Not just that, the blog posts and content was much more substantive that what is viable over a social media post. I just flat out miss those days. Frankly, I just don't really feel like using social media as a tool to get my ideas out there anymore. Don't get me wrong, Facebook groups are great, and really good for interacting in short bursts. However, I feel like a jerk if I jump into a Facebook group and start with the "hey guys, look! Look at what I've got going on..&q
Ok, ok, so this is a little fun with my Halloween costume that Daisey made for me this year. I really, really love this idea and am going to use it for my Halloween costume next year. Essentially I'll make this the t-shirt design and wear the mask so I continue with the death metal Turkmenian Flare-horned Markhor (a type of goat). This year Daisey made us all masks for animals with a musical motif. She was a goth sun bear, my son was a spirit of 76 punk rock caracal, and my daughter went as a new wave red panda. Here's a look at me in my costume this year: I hope you enjoy them! Daisey, the kids and I sure did have fun with them this year! Happy gaming all!
