Good stuff for 2013

As I mentioned previously we have a few things for 2013:
The Awakened anthology, some great and talented authors based in a setting created by me
Bluffside for C&C, converted and expanded for summer (I hope) 2013, it will be an official TLG book
Possibilities: A graphic novel based in the world of The Awakened
                     A few Kickstarter projects for Pathfider
Extreme possibilities: A boardgame to be released on Kickstarter
                                    A second Awakened anthology
                                    Some conversions of some great product for C&C by a few companies but brought together under one roof (more to come soon on this).

2013 seems very bright in the writing/game design field for us!

Weekend Update 11/24/12-Thankful edition

Have some cool stuff happening soon, sorry to be so cryptic.
We are getting Bluffside C&C edition ready for 1/1/13.
I am waiting to hear from the publisher to see what stories made it into the anthology.

I did pitch another anthology idea.
I am in the middle of trying to get more items for C&C available, just waiting on TLG feedback.
We did send them a little gift to use with Bluffside C&C, I hope they like what they got.

I am thankful to my friends and family and the ability to be creative and get paid for it, I am thankful for my home, my kids and their health, and hoping mine improves this next year.

D&D Museum is a Possibility

Here is an idiegogo plan for a D&D Museum, I like the idea, but tend to think an RPG museum may be smarter and appeal to more people....

Great American Teach In

Today I am going to my kids previous elementary school as a representative of my company to tell them what it is like to work in insurance.  I have done this for 6 of the last 7 years so its not a big deal, I just need to be on my A game, so the students like me, and the female teachers think I am funny and cute...OK Hal, time to bring your A game!

And after that time to work on some writing, since school lets out before I would get home from work, its free time, until me and the dog need to pick up my kids from the school bus!

Failed License Revealed

I blogged a few months ago that we ( a group of designers and myself) were in negotiations for a license, and then I became quiet, well I became quiet because it never came through, which happens.
Well somebody asked about it and I figured, heck why not talk about it...

The license was for Robert Adam's Horseclans, it is a science fiction series by Robert Adams, set in a North America that had been thrown back to a medieval level by a full-scale nuclear war.

I loved this series as a youth, and loved the art of Ken Kelly on the covers, but alas it was not meant to be.  The last game supplement for it was for GURPS and has been OOP for a long time.

It would of been for Savage Worlds.
