Having a ball at Origins. Played a ton of games, discovered about a zillion new RPGs and other games I want to try, hung out with friends, ate way too much greasy fast food, made research contacts, verified that I will likely be working on two RPG projects within the next year, made contacts to pick up new writing work, found two publishers who want to see Tabula Rasa (and boffo9, I really need to get back to you on your extremely helpful comments!!) . . . .

. . . but the most exciting part was seeing my name (and the boy's!) on a real live book cover!

Everyday Heroes, the first supplement for Phil Brucato's urban fantasy game Deliria, is going to be released at GenCon this year. They had a mockup for display with a copy of the cover, though, and I got to see it! And touch it! And stuff! Yes, there was fondling. No, it's technically not my first published work, but academic articles just aren't the same. Plus they don't put your name on the cover! It even looks like we'll be doing a signing, with rscott, at GenCon.


*double squee*

You never told me you were working on Deliria!

I wasn't sure how much I was allowed to say before the project was publicly announced - so I guess I erred on the side of total silence. Sorry! But it's all official and stuff now, so I can say pretty much what I want. :)

So, yeah, me and the boy: Deliria writers. Have you picked up the game yet? I'm curious to hear what you think about it - drop me a line and let me know!

I might be able to tell you in person. Check your e-mail. :-)

You worked on Deliria? Wow! Sure, no one understands the system but the setting is awesome and the book and writing is great!

As for Tabula Rasa, I'm always happy to look at your stuff. Its my way of getting ahead of the news and seeing greatness in motion.

Finally, since I have never been to Origins, can you steal a salt shaker for me or something? Hee hee.
