Wanted: Citadel Uruk-Hai

I am looking to buy or trade for these Citadel Uruk-Hai orcs (not X-ed out).

Can you help me out or know someone who can?

Eureka! Password Recovered

Gee, that only took forever.

First, I would like to apologize from my prolonged absence from this blog.

There are several reasons. I had some major life upheaval which caused me to focus my attention elsewhere. After that absence, I literally forgot my password and my phone number also changed so I couldn't get a new one. Also, with the migration of the old school gaming community to google plus, my attention was further diverted. This has gotten so bad, I even started making a new blog...which I will unveil shortly.

It was only on a whim that I decided to sit here (once again) and fire passwords into blogger that I managed to pull the right one.

The situation has been silly, stupid, and crazy but I have nobody to blame but myself.

So I will again offer an apology.

On the plus side, I have been working on painting my new Dwarven Forge sewers and collecting a small army of oop Citadel orcs for ebay and elsewhere. I'm also attending GaryCon in a couple weeks.

It's good to be back :)

Barrowmaze Articles

In case you missed them, here are links to two essays in The Escapist Magazine on Barrowmaze.

I wrote the first one on teaching and research related to old school gaming and Jon Bolding wrote the other. He did a great job speaking of the OSR generally and Barrowmaze specifically.

Also, a reminder that Barrowmaze Complete finishes very shortly on March Fo(u)rth, aka GM's Day. What can I say, I wanted to end the campaign with style :)

AMA Barrowmaze

I'm going to run an Ask me Anything tonight on Reddit around 8pm.

I'd like to focus on Barrowmaze but can also take questions with regard to teaching and researching popular culture at a Canadian university.

Be sure to post some questions!

Barrowmaze Complete Next Week

This is just an update to expect the Barrowmaze Complete and Miniatures crowdfund campaign next week. The campaign will run on Indiegogo (I went to the Waffle House several times on it but finally had to make the call) and will likely run for a period between 30-40 days. I'm excited to see what you think of all the surprises!

Kickstarter or Indiegogo?

I asked this question on Facebook the other day, but want to gather opinions here too.

Do you have a preference for the Barrowmaze Complete and Miniatures campaign?

Would you rather see it on Kickstarter or Indiegogo? Do you have a strong preference either way?

New Barrowmaze Crowdfund January 2014

BARROWMAZE Crowdfund Announcement:

As mentioned on Google Plus, I'm working on a new crowdfunding campaign set to begin in January of 2014 on Indiegogo.

In case you don't know, I am the author of Barrowmaze I and II, a popular two-part old school megadungeon that finished second in this year's Three Castles Award for Independent Game Design at the North Texas RPGcon (NTRPGcon).

In brief, my plan with the new crowfund is to combine the two Barrowmaze books into a definitive single volume entitled Barrowmaze Complete with new material, art, professional design and layout. Ex-TSR artist Erol Otus has agreed to provide the cover art! Woot! Woot!

Alongside Barrowmaze Complete, I am working closely with Richard Scott of Otherworld Miniatures to create a new boxed set of Official Barrowmaze Monsters, similar to the DAB series of fantasy adventurers. This will be very cool :)

Consider this an early "Save the Date" notice and please keep the campaign in mind in January. More news and details to follow. I would certainly appreciate you passing the word along your networks.
