5-Star + Seal of Approval (+ 2017 Top 10 Candidate) for Wrath of the Jötunn

I'm excited to announce ethat "Into the Wintery Gale: Wrath of the Jötunn" (AAW Games / Adventureaweek.com) has received a 5-star + seal of approval rating from Endzeitgeist! The title was also made a candidate for the Top Ten of 2017!

"Let me elaborate: This is, in essence, a massive sandbox with a really strong narrative that resounds with themes of love, loss, glory; this feels like a larger than life tale, straight from a mythology that could have been. This module at once manages to evoke themes of old-school masterpieces, the sense of myth, the sense of plausibility and the new-school focus on a captivating narrative, with tons of read-aloud text, diverse challenges..." -- EZG

GM Tips with Satine Phoenix & BJ Hensley

Well, that was very cool experience. Taking a few minutes to catch up with my favorite D&D-themed show (GM Tips with Satine Phoenix) [my primary reason for subscribing to Alpha], and I’m excited to see this episode’s guest is an awesome person I’ve worked with (BJ Hensley). Then while I’m watching (at about the 9-minute mark) the conversation shifts to an adventure that I wrote. It was very neat to see my name on the cover show up on screen.

Neat personal moment aside, it’s a really fantastic episode about teaching through gaming, and about how to get kids involved in tabletop RPGs. A must-watch for gamer parents or anyone who works with children.

There’s also some super exciting news about a new license acquired by Playground Adventures. I won’t spoil it, but I will say congratulations to the Playground Adventures team; there’s no better group of folks that I could imagine working on the project!
