Robots are pretty cool, man.

We’re running a Kickstarter to make some Atomic Robo stuff and The Official Tesladyne Field Guide for all things action science. Check it out!

And because I feel weird self-promoting in a space I have been reserving for talking about more general nerdy stuff, here’s the Warmachine Kickstarter. It looks like they’re doing (almost) everything I wish Games Workshop would do, re: 40k and vidya game.


Absolutely Dreadful Wallpaper

Matt cooked up some wallpapers to celebrate the returning to The Dreadful.

Wallpaper @ 1280 x 1024 or 1680 x 1050 or 1920 x 1080

Look for the next page of his series on Monday!


How you doin’?

Hey, remember when I used to do webcomics? Fucked up but true!

In other webcomics news, Mr. Matt Speroni will be back on The Dreadful pretty soon now that he wrapped up a side project that turned into a not-so-side project. Look for more updates in your near future.

I haven’t been following any SUPER NERD Kickstarters in a while, so this update won’t attack your wallet. Much.

We recently partnered with ComiXology to deliver the first ever convention exclusive digital comic for Emerald City Comicon. It is now merely a digital exclusive comic that you can get for yourself right now.

The Atomic Robo RPG is nearly done. I think we’re still shooting for a May/June release on that. Scott and I got to participate in an play test a few weeks ago and, okay, I’m biased, but it was amazing.

Oh, and Second Fiction went and made an Atomic Robo mobile game based on the animated short The Fictory will release in May. It’s just iOS for now, but Android and Win8 versions are incoming.

Meanwhile, after hiatus-ing for far too long, I started updating both The Traitor and the Monk and translations of the surviving parts of Gao Wen’s The Chronicle of the Sword Witch.

So, that’s what I’ve been up to. Hope you guys and gals are doing well.


FATE Core Kickstarter is go!

If you know anything about tabletop RPGs, then you know the FATE system by Evil Hat is pretty rad. So rad, in fact, that we’re using it for Atomic Robo.

They’re Kickstarter-ing the newest edition of FATE. It’s the most streamlined, most adaptable iteration of the system so far. Every single reward tier, including $1, gets you access to the game via PDF, and every version of that PDF as the game is tweaked by player response during the KS campaign. Cough up a little more cash for the print or hardcover editions if you’re so inclined. And check out all those other stretch goals if you want to watch money disappear from your account.

The upcoming Atomic Robo RPG runs on an adaptation of FATE Core tuned specifically to the source material by Mike Olson. You do not need this book to play it. You should get it anyway, because it’s for running any and every other kind of game.


Hey, listen!

I’m making a couple official appearances in November! Maybe you’d like to officially appear in front of my appearance?
