Wordmonkey at One Month and Change

Brief Review, Followed By Walk-Through Explanation: Well, it’s been almost a month and a half since I started the Wordmonkey storefront on DriveThruRPG (http://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/8800/Wordmonkey-Studios), and work continues apace.  Product #6 (Abraxas) just went live a few minutes ago. I’ve decided to take a page out of Evil Hat’s playbook (a company I have deep respect … [Read more…]

Wordmonkey Studios

2015 has not been my friend. This is more in terms of an explanation rather than an excuse regarding my abysmal track record of updating this site.  I’m finally digging out from under the deluge of Real Life issues and complications which snowed me under for most of this year.  Hopefully, this means I’ll be … [Read more…]

Long Overdue Update

Okay. In order: Blackwyrm will be parting company with the Algernon Files project. A number of things have happened over the last few months to complicate Blackwyrm’s ongoing business and they simply aren’t positioned to be able to support the product in a way that makes me and them both happy, either creatively or financially. … [Read more…]

Kickstarter for ALGERNON Files 3.0

Been a while since I last updated, so I’ll cut to the chase.  First two books are ready to go to print (TAF 3.0 Volume I: Abraxas to Arsenal of Democracy and TAF 3.0: Artificer’s Guild to Blackheart), next three in the series currently being worked on, with many more to go.

I continue to think highly of Jon, James and others who have gone through the Other-Than-Writing stuff on theses … [Read more…]

Law of Unintended Consequences

The man in the hi-tech body armor walked from cell door window to cell door window, inspecting the contents. His large and dangerous looking weapon swung slightly from its strap as he slowly made his way down the sterile and much too glaringly well-lit hallway. His employers’ unwilling subjects of experimentation were all subdued and … [Read more…]

Mea Culpa

I continue to be a bad host, putting off updates until I forget about them.  Bad Aaron. Anyhow, I’m putting up a little more art as I wait for new stuff from Alex.  I don’t believe I’ve talked about either of these before, but here’s Bad Penny, everyone’s least favorite luck controller with an attitude, … [Read more…]

The Continuing Joys of New Art Rolling In…

Work continues apace on the new Algernon Files material.  One of my favorite parts is the sheer FUN of working with Alex and seeing the new art he sends in. Like this morning, when he sent several new pieces in.  A few samples:     Adonis ( a re-envisioning on an old character), Apparition, Argus … [Read more…]
