The Curse of Alfred Packer

Posted on October 11, 2017 By

A few weeks back, I noted that my Packer’s Last Resort card game had reached a point where I could no longer playtest it solo; I need to get other folks to play it too. Turns out, that was easier said than done. First, I made plans to test the game at the local game…

Bubble Helmets and Furious Fists

Posted on October 4, 2017 By

I dedicated last weekend to punching ghosts and shooting robots. Last weekend was Tacticon, one of my favorite local game conventions. While attendance seemed down from previous years, it was great to see the extended gaming family again, and to run some Savage Worlds for players outside my usual gaming group. I ran Ghost Punchers…

My Patreon patrons already read this weeks ago, but for everyone else… Previously, I wrote about unique, individual “pillar characters” who appear in multiple stories across the storyworld and fulfill important structural roles within the world itself. Below is one such character from the Empire of Venom & Silk storyworld. Varan Tull, High Priest of the Spider Gods Before the invasion, Varan…

Packer’s First Milestone

Posted on August 28, 2017 By

I’ve hit a milestone on my Packer’s Last Resort card game: I can no longer playtest it by myself. Oh, I can still make sure most of the mechanical tweaks are working, and that my math hasn’t turned the game into a collapsing, flaming wreck. But as I simultaneously played four different hands during my…
