Decider….or Not.

George W. Bush, April 18th, 2006:

I’m the decider and I decide what’s best. And what’s best is for Don Rumsfeld to remain as the secretary of defense.”

George W. Bush, April 19th, 2006:

“It’s going to be hard to replace Scott, but nevertheless he made the decision and I accepted it.

Man, it’s gotta suck when you can’t stick to your bullshit posturing for even 24 hours……

Gaming: Wuxia-genre playtest?

If you’re seeing this post, it’s because I’ve added you to a super-secret filter of local folks who game.

Please do not publicize the information in this post, because none of this has been made officially public yet.

My company, Adamant Entertainment, has entered into a deal with Green Ronin, regarding their forthcoming Dragon Fist wuxia (Chinese fantasy) RPG. We’re going to be writing and editing the first two adventures published for the game — they’ll come out with both the Green Ronin and Adamant Entertainment logos on them. After that, Adamant will be producing an exclusive line of PDF support products for the game.

Green Ronin has sent me the manuscript. I need to write the adventures….and playtest them, which is where you come in.

If you’re interested in doing a few sessions of over-the-top wuxia action, please let me know. I’m thinking of trying to get it together once every 2 to 3 weeks or so. My schedule is flexible, so we can hash out a good day and time once we know who’s involved.

You’ll be credited as playtesters in the final products….and, actually, if we end up making comments which effect the core rulebook itself, you’d appear as playtesters for that as well.

The adventures are already titled: Tianguo Ghost Story and The Burning of the White Lotus Temple.

I’m Done.

If you’re actually interested in making amends and rebuilding burnt bridges, it is perhaps not the smartest of ideas to make a request which clearly demonstrates that

A) You’re really only interested in scheduling as many “redemption appointments” as you can on your convenient day off,

B) You’re only doing this as a public effort because of an ultimatum you’ve received, and you need to show progress by Saturday,


C) You view me as the one that you can reschedule, so that you can concentrate on the ones who count.

I suppose this way, he’s managed to neatly avoid being popped in the fucking mouth for calling me “brother.”

That’s it. I’m done.
