In this episode of the Court Games RPG podcast, Kakita Kaori and Korvar invited me on to discuss my role in the development of Fantasy Flight Games’ story reboot for the Legend of the Five Rings as well as the writing I’ve done for it since. They asked me about my background with the setting as well as the aspects of the world that drew me in and are the most interesting for me to explore in the fiction and adventures I’ve created for the setting. We also consider player interaction with the storyline as well as some of the challenges of writing an inclusive and diverse setting. You can listen to this episode on Apple iOS, Spotify, or on the web!

So far North & South (the BBC drama) is like Brass: Birmingham meets Pride & Prejudice and I am here for it. (SO many yearning looks, against a backdrop of industrialism and class struggle.)
My debut album “Hope In Chaos” will be out 11/19! This album is about finding the light through the darkness and preserving though our inner demons. All 12 tracks are produced, written, and sung by me. No collabs. I’m going to give you all a story by me 💜2
On the advice of people who know what they’re doing I’ve created a folder of screencaps: kind acceptances / glowing reviews / good shit in general, to sustain myself through the harsh winter of no new pubs for the rest of the year and #nanowrimo 🤞
I was talking with an industry friend this weekend about social media branding. During our conversation, they expressed some (very reasonable) frustration surrounding community expectations when it comes to online presence and the nuances of social media etiquette.
