Politics Again?!?


This blog post should be about RPGs, but it's not.  It's unfortunately about the radical-leftists coming out of the woodwork to fuck with regular old gamers, probably like yourself.

I'm not even going to go into it, hoss.  Stuff on YouTube, Twitter, Discord.  

Yeah, the tide is turning... but not fast enough.  These woke, SJW leftoids have to be confronted and mocked and called-out for their shitty behavior.  They're petty authoritarians.  

Anyway, I'll be "out of the office" for a few days.  Send good vibes.  Comment below to show a brother he's not alone!


p.s. Cha'alt: Chartreuse Shadows coming in 2 weeks!

VENGER CON under fire


This is a link to the video, if you're reading the blog post on a mobile device.

So, what's this all about?

One or more people, most likely radical-leftists, went to tabletop events in order to get my convention shut down or at least removed from their platform.  

I have the email if anyone wants to read it.  Just ask:

On what grounds would VENGER CON be removed from the tabletop events platform?  "Sexually explicit" and "hateful or otherwise objectionable" material found on this here blog which I linked to in the banners and website.

I replied back, asking for them to specifically tell me what material from my blog went against their code of conduct.  If I have to, I'll ditch the links to my blog.  Regardless, this isn't going to deter me from putting on an awesome gaming convention.

While it's still up, grab yourself a ticket (limited to 100 attendees).  Join us!  The goal of VENGER CON is a return to normalcy and celebration of gaming's golden age - old-school, OSR, and traditional RPGs.  You won't see rooms full of board and card games, nor an expansive dealer hall full of retailers. VENGER CON is for paper & pencil RPGs!

The more they want to shut VENGER CON down, the more I want it to happen.  Remember, we're still fighting a culture war.  A certain segment of the RPG community, hobby, and industry would love nothing better than to shut the OSR down - especially, if it also brings down individuals that pushback against their authoritarian agenda.

Thanks for your support,

Chartreuse Shadows coming soon...


The raw text for Cha'alt: Chartreuse Shadows was completed yesterday.  I'm going to give it one last look today before sending it over to the proofreaders.  

I fully expect the PDF to be finished by the end of March, and hopefully (tentacles crossed), I'll have 1,000 gorgeous, luxury, hardcover books in my hands by July.  That's assuming supply chain issues don't cause delays.

The main feature of Chartreuse Shadows is the megadungeon Cremza'amirikza'am.  I'm excited to show everyone because it's really cool.  I don't know, maybe it's the most awesome (certainly in the running for the most Venger) gaming thing I've ever written.

Not everyone's going to love it, of course.  And that's ok.  If I wanted bland, beige content that didn't risk offending anyone, I'd take one of those low-paid internships at D&D, or simply hop onto DM's Guild.

Thanks to everyone who's attended my playtests, the amazing artists and crowd-source dudes on social media who gave me suggestions, backed the Kickstarter(s), supported me, bought my stuff, helped with promotion, and is doing their own thing, their own way.  I appreciate you!


p.s. Now, that January is here... it's time to rev-up promotion for VENGER CON in Madison, WI this July. Nothing but old-school, OSR, and traditional roleplaying games for an entire weekend.  Attendance limited to 100 people.  Grab your ticket before they run out.  The hotel is saving a block of discounted rooms, as well.
