Temporarily Back to Basics

Suddenly I have experienced a surge in game-writing. The Fenix editors want contributions in my specialty field: game world design. So the December issue had a campaign outline based on John Wyndham’s The Kraken Wakes (read more here >>>) and issue #1-2012 will contain an article on how to use Umbar for gritty Fourth-Age campaigns on the theme “What will happen when King Elessar takes control of the corsairs’ city?”

The Wyndham article is also in the process of being expanded to a full-fledged atomretro campaign setting — called Oz Is Drowning — for Saga Games’s RPG Parallel Worlds. It focuses on a cineastic 1950s Australia as a campaign setting for the impending disasters. A pulpish mix: one part John Wyndham, one part Indiana Jones, one part Biggles.

It feels great that my skills and services still are attractive in the RPG business. I have been around for 35 years and am still exploring new territory.
