Cave of Secrets: Dead Things

So, before I get into this blog post, couple of quick reminders. This weekend I'll be at Anthrocon in Pittsburgh, PA. In the absurdly unlikely event that anyone who reads this might be there, feel free to say hi! Also, I'm appearing in an anthology that's coming out this weekend as well!

(On a related note, this week I'll be getting in a Doctor Who session, but it might not get written up until I get home because it's literally the night before we leave for the con.)


So as I've mentioned previously, the reason it's been so quiet on this front is because one of my players had a minor medical crisis. He's doing better now, so we've been able to dust off the dice and the gaming table and sit down for some sessions. Which means that, in case you somehow missed the title of this post, I've got a Werewolf session for you!

(It's been a while, so to facilitate refreshers here's a quick link to the last post.)

Mini-announcement

As mentioned in a previous post, my writing is appearing in an anthology that comes out in about a week. Well, the product page for the book is up!

Check out that author list, aw yiss.

(Wait, wait, don't go, I won't say 'aw yiss' again!)

And just for the record, I know the assumptions some people make about anthro fiction, which is why I'm taking a second to reassure you that the aforementioned link is entirely worksafe (even if not all of the products in the FurPlanet catalog are), and that the anthology in question is a general audience one.

(I'll link the ebook version when it becomes available, in case anyone would prefer that over a print version for some reason or another.)

Cyberpunk furry stuff

So I've been doing a lot of writing for one thing or another over the last year and change and as a result the main story in my Conversion setting has kind of gone neglected. Not proud of that, but I'll own it. I've been trying to write stories in the setting for magazines and anthologies (and am finally getting something published) but that means that I've had less energy/focus to devote to it while also toying around with/pursuing other writing projects in addition to gaming prep. But that also means I got a little burned out on it, as I was spending a few months with my head down, trying to get stuff into submission inboxes, and that burned me out a bit on the setting.

Well, I've recently been able to swing back around and finish the most recent chapter. Also, over time, my writing processes have refined themselves somewhat, and I've got a solid outline regarding the rest of this story so future installments should (in theory) be quicker. Maybe.

Anyhow, all this means is that the fifth story of Conversion, my cyberpunk furry story, is now available.

And rather than link to all the past chapters again, I'm just going to set up a label for the series/setting that I've retroactively added to prior posts with my writing in this setting.

Enjoy! And please feel free to share any feedback here or over at my Twitter or Google Plus.

A quick heads-up for the summer

Okay, so a few things regarding this summer.

First off, at the end of this month/beginning of the next, I'll be at Anthrocon. The only real reason I bring it up (since online communication won't exactly cease during the convention) is that my writing is appearing in this year's ROAR anthology from FurPlanet, and unless I've missed something that should be out at the convention this year. When it's available from their store page, I'll go ahead and link it on this blog.

Second, with regards to Gencon, I've submitted a second Monster of the Week game for Saturday evening. I'll keep things updated here regarding that so anyone who will be there and might want to play in it can sign up.

Cave of Secrets: Dump the Body

Okay, at this point I should be caught up on gaming posts for the immediate future. Just a reminder, I'll be at Gencon this year from Wednesday to Monday if anyone wants to hang out or whatever.

And just a reminder of something from a previous post, we're heading into the last Werewolf story for a while. This will be something of a 'season finale' and then I'm going to take a break from running it for a bit (likely focusing on my group's Pathfinder game to get the Adventure Path we're on through a slow section).

So here we go. Some of you who follow Werewolf: The Apocalypse material since W20 came out may recognize what it is I'm doing, if you haven't already. If you leave a comment (not that anyone ever does), please try to avoid spoilers since my players sometimes read this.
