As anyone who has visited this website knows, it has been dormant for quite some time. I last published a book in 2013, which was a decade ago, and the last time I posted was in 2018, which was five years ago. Despite my lack of recent activity, the storefront, d20 modern character generator, and Tiamat tile mapper have remained active. However, the software running all these tools is quite outdated and poses a security risk. I'm faced with the choice of either upgrading everything or taking the site down. Frankly, upgrading will require too much time and money, neither of which I have right now. So, I plan to bring down this website in the coming months.

If you're reading this post, please log in and download all your ebooks, maps, and other files. I won't be deleting anything; instead, I will replace this site with a placeholder that includes contact information so customers can still access their books. However, it won't be as convenient for you or for me.

You will still have the option to purchase ebooks from and print books from Amazon. I may consider setting up a new storefront for selling books, as there are many software solutions available for that. However, the character generator and mapping software present a different challenge as they are custom-coded.

Regarding the d20 Modern Character Generator, I may consider making the code open source on GitHub. Although the code is quite old, it has the potential for improvement, and perhaps someone else can modernize it or individuals can run it locally.

As for Tiamat, please refrain from buying any additional tiles or maps that you cannot use immediately. There is no viable upgrade path for this tool, and it costs more to maintain than it generates in revenue. There are numerous other excellent mapping tools available, making open-sourcing the code (excluding the tiles) seem unnecessary.

I hope to publish again someday. I have numerous adventures, settings, and other games that are mostly complete, waiting for me to finish when I have more time. However, I've been saying that for years. :)

So, to reiterate, please log in and download all your ebooks, maps, and other files.

I'm getting closer to finishing Brotherhood of Radiation. All the art and content is complete. It's just a matter of editing and layout now.

In the meantime, I'll be posting some artwork for it on G+. Here's the first batch.

Savage Worlds fans, send me your typos and suggestions. This just in, people like Savage Worlds. We're #5 on rpgnow after only two days and they aren't even my primary sales outlet anymore. Also, a really high % of sales are for the print edition. I didn't know what to expect to be honest. The true 20 version didn't get this level of a response out of the gate.

Since so many people have spent their hard earned cash on the print version, let's see if we can't make it as clean as possible. Send me (email, tweet, facebook, or buzz) your typos, errors, or other suggestions before end of day Monday. If you're the first to report it, I'll make sure you get a coupon towards another rpgobjects product like the upcoming Campaign Guide.

Suffering from gamer ADD, I ignored Tiamat for a bit to redo the layout for Darwin's World Savage Worlds. I submitted it to Peginc and await their approval. Then Dominic sent me a finished draft of Somewhere In Between, and since I was already in the thick of it, I continued editing and layout. With it nearly complete, expect Somewhere In Between to go on sale Monday.

Gencon 2009 has come and gone and I'm finally feeling normal. It was a great week of gaming. I ran 3 events (Darwin Race, Revenge of the Terminals, and Inferno). The groups were great fun. Two of the three groups consisted mostly of people who had never heard of Darwin's World which was great. The last one was mostly fans which made for a really fun and experienced game.

The Darwin Race adventure didn't go as well as I hoped. The adventure needs a lot of tweaking so it may be a few weeks before I release that. I played Revenge of the Terminals again as an event, and I think it's the best gencon adventure I've written. It just works very well for a convention event. Sometimes you strike gold and sometimes you don't.

I played a ton of board games too, which is what I do at night. I played some Power Gird, Game of Thrones, Twilight Emporium (I won), Steam, Cash and Guns, and some hearts. I always purchase at least 2 new board games and this year it was Steam and Neuroshima Hex. We played Steam twice, playing it wrong both times, so the verdict is still out on that one. I haven't played Neuroshima Hex. It's a post apocalyptic board game import from Poland. Tell me that doesn't sound awesome!

One thing that is always great about gencon is that it really recharges you creative batteries. Normally I come home with lots of ideas, but that is often stifled in some ways as I normally have a slate of projects 6-8 months in the pipe. But this year I only have a few minor things. So I'm very excited.
