Gen Con Thursday Free book Phrase

Want to snag a FREE copy of MYTHIC D6 at Gen Con 2018?

Thursday phrase of the Day:

Those elbows are super ashy

If you don’t catch me anytime that day, you can always buy the book the Indie Press Revolution booth. Just head on over to booth # 2459 and tell the gang there to sell you a cool RPG book, and if they’re out, settle for a MYTHIC D6!


Rules:

  • When I’m in a game (running or playing) or a panel, I’m can’t be approached
  • When I’m in the bathroom
  • When I’m having my daily eyebrow or Brazilian wax (its just awkward)
  • Don’t be rude or pushy to me or other humans in the area. I’m having fun, and I want everyone around me to have fun as well. Let’s be good humans.
  • When the books are gone for the day, they’re gone- sorry.

Each day I will post a new phrase, and each day I will give away 3 books.

Update of my Wednesday Gen Con Escapades!

20180801_182554

Someone noticed my soggy pants and go a book yesterday evening. I was spotted inside the Loughmillers Pub and Eatery scraping leftover food off plates into my duffel bag (Pro Tip: Find the busboy station for the best grub)

This could be you in the picture if you find me and say the phrase.

MYTHIC D6 status update

MYTHIC D6 update and my new BFF Brian Isikoff

MYTHIC D6 Status Report

Hello Everyone, remember me?

The books are almost to port!

Once they are through customs, they will be ships to the warehouse and distribution points. Once that’s all settled I can start shipping the books out to the backers.

I hope to have the process well on its way and done by the end of August. That’s my hope.

While I’m waiting for the book, I’m also working on other MYTHIC D6 project sand I hope to have all the stretch goals finished.

As an aside

I made the trip to the Bay Area to run a special game of MYTHIC D6 for Brian Isikoff. He was owed a game, and I was excited to run it.

Some may know Brian from his podcast 2D5 in a Random Direction

http://2d6feet.com/

And as promised, I ran a game of his choice using the MYTHIC D6 system. We settled on a Star Wars KotOR game, and it was a blast. I hope he enjoyed the game because I thoroughly enjoyed running it for him. We played upstairs at Endgame in Oakland (if you’re in the area check the store out).

http://www.endgameoakland.com/

It’s a great store, and I enjoyed Brian’s company immensely. He’s a great guy and a very clever role-player. When the game was over, I lamented that we didn’t live closer. He’s a great guy and always welcomed at any table I sit at. He’s a good human being with a tremendous amount of character and generosity. I appreciate him as a person, and I look forward to visiting again to hang out and talk some more.

What’s the status of MYTHIC D6?

MYTHIC D6 Status Report

Hello Everyone, remember me?

Jerry D. Grayson, Gold Medal winner of the 1996 Navel Stuffing Championship held in Muncie Indiana?

Skin tag eating bronze medal winner 1997?

Elbow lotion application champion 2003?

Arepa juggler silver medal winner 2010?

No?…fair enough, it was a long time ago. Ahhhh my heyday

Its been a while since I last updated you on MYTHIC D6. I’ve been busy putting the book together and making something presentable that everyone can enjoy. I’ve also been plugging away at Bastion, Terra Oblivion, and a few other projects.

I’m also sluggish, self-involved, and really enjoy watching B-Movies in my spare time…so there’s that.

What is the status of MYTHIC D6, what is going on with all that Kickstarter money? Well, beyond getting a cool tattoo of a manatee on my face, I’ve been buying art, paying editors, and doing the layout.

The book is done and at the printers…don’t believe me, look at what I got in the mail yesterday…

Geek Girls Rule! #432 – This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

In case some are unaware, I’m involved with New Agenda Publishing. It’s a new publishing endeavor I’m excited about, and I hope once you learn more, you’ll be thrilled too.
I read this on the GEEK GIRLS RULE!!! Website today and it made me giggle but also offered some insight into what I’m about and more importantly, what NAP is about (yes, the acronym is intended)

“NEW AGENDA PUBLISHING is a consortium dedicated to promoting diversity in the RPG community through our hiring and choices. We want to amplify underrepresented voices and help them tell new stories from their perspective. We want to bring more people of color and especially women of color to the table, and we think the best way to do that is by hiring them to help us create the games and worlds they want to play in.”

Geek Girls Rule!!!

Ok, so for DECADES the clarion call of the cis het white dude nerd has been, “If you don’t like it, why don’t you make your own?!”  (Imagine me saying that in the whiniest, most nasally voice I can manage.  I still have a cold, I can get really nasally right now.)

So, a group of POC nerds did exactly that and founded New Agenda Publishing.

New Agenda is made up of Misha Bushyager, Jerry Grayson, and Eloy Lasanta.  All three of them have some serious game design cred, and I for one am super excited about their upcoming projects, whatever those might be.  If you want to check out their cred, follow the links, guys, I’m only doing so much homework for you tonight.  I’m still kinda sick.

Less than a month in, the whiny posts have already started on RPG.net, reddit and Enworld.  I…
