Summer Recap

The last couple of months have been pretty active for me and I haven’t really written about anything overly personal in months. Figure it’s about time to mend that.

June was Pramas’s 40th birthday. I threw him a party, saw a bunch of old friends and had a really nice time. The following week I [...]

Favorite PAX Moment

I tried to deplague-ify myself through diligent hand washing, applications of sanitizer, and I didn’t share my controllers or lick any banisters but I still managed to come home with some sort of PAX plague that has settled into my chest over the course of today. So, my PAX report is going to take the [...]

An Open Letter to Marcus King

Dear Marcus,

I awoke this morning to see Green Ronin called out on the front page of ICv2 as part of your commentary on PDF pricing,( ). Spurred by the Wizards of the Coast sudden decision to discontinue all PDF sales of their products, Green Ronin announced we were putting ONE product (our True20 [...]

Green Ronin Podcast

I spent last Thursday chit-chatting with fellow Ronins Pramas and Sass for a new Green Ronin Podcast. Tune in to hear us discuss recent staff changes, game design versus game development, Supervillain’s Handbook, the proper pronunciation of Leitheusser, True20 Freeport: The Lost Island, A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying, Flying Spaghetti Monster, Doctor Who, [...]

My Welcome Home

I guess I didn’t do a very good job of reporting in regularly from GenCon. I recovered from staying out too late after the Diana Jones Awards and was a good girl every other night, going back to my room to run credit card receipts instead of hitting the industry parties and getting enough sleep [...]

GenCon First Day

Green Ronin had a pretty good day today as the hall opened but the day had to start very early as we had to get into the hall at the crack of dawn to finish the massive set-up that still needed to be done. With so many of us unable to arrive before last night, [...]

Ropecon ended

Hanged zombie Originally uploaded by mrksaari.

I did not take this photo. I did not even see Hanged Zombie in person. But this excellent photo, of this excellent costume, taken at the honest to god live action Rock Paper Scissors tournament at Ropecon (and subtitled “Hanged zombie is quite unhappy after losing rock-paper-scissors battle.”) [...]

Green Ronin Past, Present, and Future

I found myself moved to make a post over on ENWorld today, where people were discussing our recent announcement that Green Ronin will not be signing onto Wizards of the Coast’s new Game System License to support 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons. It got a little long, so rather than spend more time trying to [...]

Origins Awards comments

I started writing a long response to mxyzplk‘s post about the Origins Awards here, but then thought to myself “Hey, this could be a blog post of my own!” so I’m posting it to my own much neglected blog as such instead.

Thanks for the kudos on Freeport! We are, of course, quite proud [...]

Rest in Peace Erick

Erick Wujcik Originally uploaded by Nikchick.

I just found out that Erick Wujcik passed away yesterday.

Last year when we were putting together Green Ronin’s Hobby Games: the 100 Best, I did not hesitate to jump on the opportunity to write and essay for the book on Erick’s Amber Diceless Roleplaying. Erick was one [...]
