Spiel 2016 - Just a Girl

I've promised myself that from this week onward I will blog once a week until the end of the year. I can't promise it is all going to be about gaming, in fact I am pretty sure it won't be, but I want to hold myself to this and see if I can do it. 
First, I'd like to talk about my experience last weekend at Spiel in Essen. Spiel is the largest board game convention in the world and I've done a recap of how it was for my company on Angry Hamster Publishing's Blog. However, I thought I'd talk about how the experience was for me personally at the con.
Namely, because I had a pseudo-crisis of faith (in myself) there. Let me explain. The first day the con was open I met a blogger who offered to review WFS for me. Two days later he stopped by the booth at the same time a distributor was there and both got into a joking argument about how they wanted to take me on a date. First it was just a joke, we all laughed, and I attempted to steer the conversation back to bu…

To Inspiration

I have a writing deadline. I need to finish my work. It is not happening. Instead of the 3000 words I need to complete. I wrote this poem -_-

To Inspiration

Inspiration you beautiful monster, How you slip through my fingers. Your cruel mockery -- My progress, Or lack thereof.           Should I compare thee  to a different beast, Than the monster for which you are? Those words would be too kind, And too sweet, for a wretch such as you. Yet if you would come to me, Your praises I would sing, Hymns to your glory falling from my worshiping lips, 3,000 words to go--
Give me 100.

Gametail: The Swords & Wizardry

I need a drink, but not any type of drink I need a cocktail! But not any kind of cocktail, I need a cocktail based off an awesome game - a gametail :D.

Earlier this week +Stacy Dellorfano posted the cover of the new Swords & Wizardry, which should be Kickstarting soon. I am super excited, because I wrote an adventure for it! And if I do say so myself, it is metal as f*!#. Stacy asked me to make an adventure bridging a story game and an OSR game. I might cover that in another blog post, but let's get on to drinking!

Take a look and the /amazing/ new cover for S&W by Kaos Nest. I used it as the inspiration for the cocktail.


Now look at this beauty. Black and pink, the perfect combination for my gametail - the Swords & Wizardy!

What I am obsessed with right now

I haven't done one of these in a while and I promised myself I would try to blog more regularly, so here I go!

1) Fallout 4

I am pretty much posting about this in every non-professional thing I have written in since the game came out. This game is so addictive. Fallout 3 was great, but this really put everything over the edge of notabletofunctionintherealworldneedtoplaymore for me. I have spent far too many hours of my life building up my settlements, because you can build stuff people! Also, I have an all girl gang that comprises of me, Piper, and Dogmeat. We all wear cool red bandanas and we are called Raiders #1. The best raiders in the Commonwealth!

2) Nico Vega


So, I just found this band through Spotify and I think they are great. Anyone who does a cover of a Cher classic pretty much has my attention and their cover is damn awesome. Since I know nothing about music I needed to Google this, but I found out they are an 'American alternative rock band' (thanks Wikipedia!) …

Reviving creativity & Chill

Hello world! You may wonder where I have been for so long, well rest assured that for the month I have been in the Wasteland I have mainly been working super hard to finish everything for WITCH: Fated Souls. However, I have also been writing for some companies other than mine.

At the moment I have a few projects going and all of them are vastly different. They allow me to be amazingly creative, but they also pose a problem. When someone tells you - make me anything in this theme (horror, fantasy, etc.) it can sometimes be difficult to center your thoughts on what you want to do. I thrive with these types of assignments. An excuse to write whatever crazy thing I dream up? Yes, please.

But  - I was dreamed out for 2015. If I am honest, the closer it got to Christmas the more I wanted to eat junkfood all day and play Fallout 4 (it is a serious addiction, I am considering going to meetings). When you have deadlines this sucks so bad. However, I have a tried a true method for getting out o…
