Projects

At any given time, I’m probably working on a variety of projects, both professionally and as a hobbyist.


The Courtier

I make a new version of this for every fantasy RPG I play. This one is for 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons.


The Knaack Hack

Here’s my stab at an OSR RPG.


Quickdraws & Longshots

Here’s a wild west take on Lasers & Feelings.


Adventurer Starter Class

Here’s a quick and easy way to get new players started in Pathfinder.


Blood & Chrome

Everyone’s making these Lasers & Feelings hacks, so I did too.


D6 Heroes

I almost submitted this for the 200 Word RPG Challenge, but decided on Normaleware and Purgatory instead.


Tango

Here’s a basic RPG system adaptable to almost any setting!


D6 Dungeons

Over the past few weeks, I’ve slowly been putting together some ideas for a quick, simple RPG intended for newer or younger gamers. There are a lot of kids out there who might love role-playing games, but find all the current and previous editions of D&D too complicated, so I’m hoping to play it with my kids when they’re old enough. You can check out the wiki and post any feedback you have on the subreddit.


Natural 20 System

One of my other side projects is reducing the d20 system down to its barest nuts and bolts, creating a bloat-free RPG. It’s definitely inspired by Pathfinder, Stars Without Number, d20 Modern, Star Wars Saga Edition, and 5th Edition D&D. It’s nowhere near finished yet, but you can check it out here. Feedback is always welcome!


The Next Novel

What can I say? I had such a great experience writing and publishing Revenge Insurance that I’ve already begun my next novel. It’s more science fiction, but has a much broader scale and scope, involving interplanetary space travel, colonies on distant worlds, and slowly unraveling a grand mystery of epic proportions. Updates to come!


Binary Spark Studios

Several former CCP employees got together and created a startup here in Atlanta and they asked me to come aboard to help with writing and game design. We have a few projects in the works, including a story-driven classic adventure game called Nearest Future and Dungeoneers of Highwatch.

Pathfinder Expanded Classes

As a lifelong tabletop gamer and huge fan of the Pathfinder RPG, I decided to try my hand at making a supplement of ten new classes for the game.


Storyverse

I had the great pleasure of working with some really talented people at Dog Day Digital on the Storyverse project, a mobile app full of interactive stories for children. One of their first titles is Knoble Knight and the Perfect Snowflake, for which I provided the story and initial level design blockout.

The Wasteland

Over the last few years, I’ve been tinkering on and off with a project tentatively called The Wasteland. I really enjoy the Storyteller RPG system introduced by White Wolf for Vampire: The Masquerade and thought it would work really well in a post-apocalyptic setting, with some slight modifications, of course. I’m looking forward to playtesting this very soon with some former CCP/White Wolf people.


Poor Magic

What even is this?


Roll With It

Is this an RPG? I don’t even know anymore.


Normalware

Fine, I’ll rewrite it with robots instead.
