Let’s just cut straight to the point, shall we? GenCon 2012 was a riot. It was also very, very good for me. I’ll admit, before the show I was kind of reticent about going. You see, and I’m not gonna lie to you kids, I’ve been feeling both burned out and discouraged these past few months. GenCon fixed that problem for me, and quite handily. So, what all did I do at GenCon? What games did I play? Did I run anything? What’s the big announcement? Well, I’m glad you asked!
Look at this, y’all! The Beta for Only War is available for purchase at DriveThruRPG today! Only War is FFG’s latest 40K RPG wherein you play members of the Imperial Guard. This was one of my big projects last year. It owns and you should check out the Beta.
Ask me anything…
So, my man Ross Watson over at Rogue Warden interviewed me today. Have a look here.
Look here, kids! My latest book, Chaos Commandment for Dark Heresy, was picked as Sean Patrick Fannon’s (the mastermind behind DriveThruRPG) pick of the day! It’s a canned adventure, the final book in a trilogy of adventures wherein the players take the fate of the Calixis Sector in their hands. There’s a little bit of sneaking, a little bit of shooting, and a whole lot of mind-bending, body-twisting terror. Get it while it’s hot!
Here’s a little news to get you all excited about actually seeing regular posts around here. I’ve got some books dropping that I’d like to bring to your attention.
So. Where to begin? Well, I spent the first part of the year cranking out a bunch of books for Fantasy Flight, playing in my band, and generally being as aggressively indolent as possible. It was a time of ups and downs, strikes and gutters. Honestly, a lot of the time I spent wondering what the hell I was doing, and wondering if I shouldn’t just go to sea or take up driving a truck or something. Then, out of nowhere, came Gen Con.
Well, well, well. Looks like another of my Fantasy Flight assignments has dropped just in time for all your last-minute Christmas Shopping needs. This time it’s The Frozen Reaches, first book of the Warpstorm Trilogy. There’s a little something for every Rogue Trader player in this book. Back-room politicking for Rogue Traders and Seneschals, secrets to uncover for Explorators, objects of faith and desire for the Missionaries, and more Orks than you can shake a really big stick at for everyone else. So keep an eye out for this one, and Happy Holidays!
Oh, and by the way, check this shit out. Rites of Battle, a sourcebook for Deathwatch, has been announced over at Fantasy Flight. This is the Space Marine assignment I mentioned a few months ago. Go out right now and get yourself a copy of Deathwatch so you all can be totally ready to go when Rites drops! For the Emperor indeed.
Hey look! My latest book, Edge of the Abyss is now on sale. Get your ass to your FLGS or to your favorite online retailer, and lay your money down for this newest addition to the Rogue Trader library. It’s chock-a-block with setting info, NPCs, planets, crazy people, and it has more hooks than a fishing trawler.
