Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope you have a fantastic day full of family, friends, food, and laughter. While I haven't been very present in the blogosphere of late, that does not mean I haven't been busy with old school gaming stuff. I've been doing quite a bit of work for Expeditious Retreat Press and having a blast. I'm also back in the saddle on Delve! issue 2. I'm determined to get this one out. I've been bitten by the comic book bug again so I've been reading tons of digital comics. Comixology is great for reading back issues. As much as I love physical comics, I just don't have the space these days and a digital version on a tablet seems to be the best way to go. It's also been getting me thinking about doing some stuff for 4C. I loved Marvel FASERIP as a kid and it probably is right up there in terms of hours played with AD&D 1e. Heck, the amount of time I devoted to just creating super hero characters may even surpass D&D. I had Trapper Keepers FULL of characters with pictures I drew of them, their team logos, hideouts, cars and vehicles, etc. The nice thing is that 4C/FASERIP are super easy to explain to an 8 year old and Bear is pretty excited about it. At any rate, I hope you all have a great day!

Tl;dr: Kia ora all! I don’t often post much about my personal life, but as a parent of two neurodiverse teens, I reckoned that I’d post some of my experience in gaming here on our journey. My daughter was diagnosed with autism almost a year ago and my son is dyslexic/dysgraphia with ADHD like presentation. Both are incredibly bright and very different from each other (my son has lots of friends and is very bright and gregarious if also very lazy while my daughter is very retreating and shy but incredibly driven and motivated). They both love fantasy and fantasy literature, movies and gaming has been a way for us all to connect. Though often what works for one, doesn’t necessarily work for the other. This brings me to my point, I am working on trying to best accommodate the needs of my neurodiverse daughter and include her in an experience that she very much wants to participate in, but often feels frustrated and overwhelmed by. This is an introduction to our journey so far. For s
Greetings! I've been working on the maps and art for my Sea of O'Sr open world mega dungeon project. I tend to start with the maps and do some art to gel things in my head before I get on with the writing. I dunno why, just the way I'm built. So having said that, I've pretty much got most of the maps drawn and some concept art for myself to start getting to the writing and development tasks. Anyway, here is some a look at some of the art and maps that I do have so far. I'd love to hear your thoughts. 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
