Emerald Specter 117: My Comic Book Art Hangup

I have, in my mind, this idea for a grand column that is long… it’s about my own personal comic book art hangups, specifically related to me not wanting to draw my own comics because I think my art sucks. I’m sorry if this is too short, but I wanted to at least discuss this […]

BuJoRPG Dev Blog 003: Power Creep

Back again so soon? YES! It has come to my attention that my “tree” idea might cause something I’ll call “power creep.” Basically, in a nutshell, that means completing a couple of these adventures and exploring the entirety of each of the trees for those adventures might have you, or your character, at a power […]

Emerald Specter 116: Redefining Comics

There is a movement in the comic book industry that is finally starting to take a little hold and I wanted to talk about it because if I can make my own comics, this is the method I’d like to use. Before I get into that, though, I wanted to point out to anyone that […]

Coming Soon… BuJoRPG and More

There has been a lot of thinking that has gone on for the better part of the year so far… and I’ve already launched the BuJoRPG Dev Blog, which has immediately made an impact with traffic. So, with some other tings on my plate and a rough outline of a plan made, let me tell […]

BuJoRPG Dev Blog 002: Trees

Look at this! I’m already back for another update… and I’m probably going to ramble on this one a bit. I also have visual aids! In BuJoRPG Version 1 (V1), there weren’t any Attributes to advance and all the stats just climbed up as you acquired them. So, for example, if I wanted to level […]

Emerald Specter 115: My Wife is Addicted to Escape Rooms

My wife is addicted to Escape Rooms. I could literally leave this column at that single, short sentence but I felt it was time to out my wife in public and compare her addiction to some of my own. That, and I wanted to talk about escape rooms. This header is the only one that […]

In this Golden Age of Geekery, we have a bounty of wonderful science fiction to intake. While the TV screen has been previously dominated by Star Trek… but now we have something that is better Star Trek than Star Trek: The Orville. This is not a popular opinion, but let me explain everything about my […]

BuJoRPG Dev Blog 001: The Beginning

You’ve waited for it, and it’s here. I looked at the poll and I decided that everyone would be happy with a bit of video AND a blog, so I’m starting with the blog portion and I’ll do videos now and then. So, let’s get to the goods. Unlike the original BuJoRPG, I boiled down […]

Emerald Specter 113: I’m Not Watching the Super Bowl

This was going to be called “the State of the NFL,” but I wanted to cut to the chase and just say, in the headline, what I’m really looking at this year. I’m not watching Super Bowl LIII. I am not a Patriots fan. The sole time I rooted FOR the Patriots was the season […]

A SpecterChess Update

This is a tale of epic failure… but all hope is not lost. When I recorded the first SpecterChess, I did so with the intention of only having audio to distribute. I used screen recording software and thought I might also get away with putting out video. That was a problem. The video / audio […]
