What's Going On
August 20, 2012: It turns out that I and the rest of the team behind Green Ronin's won the Ennie for Best Bestiary/Adversary book for DC Adventures RPG Heroes & Villains Volume 1.
March 7, 2012: Green Ronin has finally released the second DC Adventures heroes and villains book. This means I'm finally able to add my writing credits for the book. Check out which characters I worked on in the Published Works section of the site.
February 1, 2012: I have just released my first ever project for the Pathfinder rule system, the Spellweaver -- PFRPG Edition. Go check it out.
November 1, 2010: The first ICONS / FATE release from Misfit Studios has been published. The ICONS version of my previously released DOOM product brings this supernatural supervillain book into a new game system, and is just the first to be converted and re-released in this way.
September 30, 2010: The Savage Worlds mini-PDFs have been selling very well, making my first foray into that game system a success! It's taking less than two weeks for these small products to turn a profit, and they are doing what I hoped: driving other sales by giving a low-risk "in" to Misfit Studios products.
September 9, 2010: I've just released my first of many Savage Worlds gaming products through my publishing company. So far it seems to be going over fairly well with the customers.
August 8, 2010: Ever since I took down all my Palladium Books content many years ago, I periodically receive emails from fans looking for copies of my Wormwood Netbook. Following a number of computer changes and hard drive crashes I thought the material lost for good. Well, I recently found a copy of the Wormwood manuscript I'd been working o nfor Palladium and have zipped it and added it to the downloads section. It was never finished--it was never even edited or proofread--and contains all sorts of rough notes, format templates, headers without content, and the like, but it also contains a lot of the information people have been asking about (and more). So, if you're a Wormwood fan, by all means swing by the downloads section and grab a copy.
June 18, 2010: I've started work on my next writing assignment for the DC Adventures role-playing game set in DC Comics' famous comic book setting.
May 3, 2010: With Green Ronin announcing it will be producing a DC comics RPG, I'm finally allowed to also say this was the "secret project" I've been working on for the past few months. Although Steve Keneson is the principal author of the core rules, myself and several other authors known for our third-party work with the M&M Superlink rules were asked to help with the additional books. This caused some push-backs with Misfit Studios products, unfortunately, but I wasn't going to let this opportunity pass by.
April 9, 2010: The samples gallery is now up and running. It took a while, as I had to tear apart the code in order to integrate it with my site design. I'm still in the process of tweaking it, but at least it's functional now. Said tweaks and sample uploads not withstanding, however, it's good to go!
April 8, 2010: Some material has been added to the downloads page. I know there are a lot of people checking in, hoping to see my old Nightbane or Wormwood gaming material, but it's not up yet. Perhaps someday, however ...
March 31, 2010: The new Trustrum.Com site is launched.
