Raider's Haul: Vikmordere Magic Item Compendium

The newest book I wrote in the "Into the Wintery Gale" series is now available for purchase.

Life in the Vikmordere Valley is harsh, especially during the wintery white, yet humans have survived in this brutally frigid environment for centuries. Their trials have birthed a vibrant culture bursting with an array of tools and magic items entirely unique to the region. Amidst these pages you will find a selection of treasures ranging from affordable arcana to priceless artifacts useful in any campaign.

This beautifully illustrated Pathfinder Roleplaying Game compatible book includes:
• Vikmordere cultural information
• 29 Nordic-themed wondrous items
• 8 magic armaments
• 5 magic weapon
• 2 new weapon special abilities

This book can be purchased via Adventureaweek.com, DriveThruRPG, RPGNow, and Paizo.

AetherCon Online RPG Convention Website

After having developed the Speed Painting Duel web app for AetherCon III, I was invited to be on the convention senior staff and asked if I would develop an entirely new web platform for the whole convention to take place on. I agreed to do so, and after several months of development (and dozens of meetings later), AetherCon IV took place on the new website interface that I developed.

New features included front-page managed entry into various "taverns" where live events were taking place, a complete vendors hall interface including a back end for vendors to manage the products they were selling at the convention, Integrated media platform management (videos, wallpapers, downloads, etc.), and a fully integrated cycling advertising system with intelligent referencing (i.e. if a convention attendee was in an area related to RPG miniatures, they would only see ads for RPG miniature manufacturers). The project also included a full integration of custom polling and survey functionality, and the ability to allow attendees to enter various contests and answer after-surveys at the end of the convention.

I designed the graphic layout for The Tome of Beasts and The Book of Lairs (by Kobold Press) Kickstarter campaign, which I am happy to announce has fully funded with $191,431 and 2,312 backers! It was a pleasure to be apart of such a successful project, and fun to work with the Kobold Press crew again.
