Easy joke is easy...
Holy shit! Has it really been since January since I updated this here 'blog? God almighty, yes it has. Well, I'm sorry Gentle Readers. A combination of being busy and apathy toward 'blogging has been my downfall. But, I'm back now if you're still interested. It's been a long and interesting seven months since we last spoke, and shit has most definitely gotten real since then. If you've got the time, I'd love to tell you about it.

Time for a break!
So, in my constant quest to leverage the synergy of social media with all the Googles and YouTubes and Faceyspaces and such, I've come up with yet another harebrained scheme to help me get the word out about Motor City Gamewerks. That's right, we're now using Meetup.com to organize get-togethers of like minded game writers and designers in the Detroit Metro Area (of which I'm one of probably a half-dozen, but oh well). So, if you're in the Metro Area, are currently working in the games industry or would like to be a writer or game designer in the games industry, stop on by and have a beer with us! The Link is below:

Welcome to the Adjective Animal...
So, yesterday I spent the day doing actual work to avoid blogging. Doing actual work to get out of doing fake work, what has become of me? Anyway, since I need to write about something to justify calling myself a writer, howsabout we talk about starting campaigns?

It's been a busy night. After the shock and anger of finding our home invaded and the majority of our wealth stolen, we acted quickly. Some would say we acted impulsively, I prefer to think that we took the initiative, and struck while the iron was hot. With the dust of the road and the stink of Stymos still on our clothes, we set about finding the men responsible. Now here we are. After a night of violence we have our man, or one of them at least. Lashed to a chair in the back room of the chandlery, his wife dead, his children sold into slavery, we make it clear to him that if he talks, his death will be swift. If he remains silent, well, let's just say that the Coranan Lia Kavair can extend an interrogation session as long as it takes. He talks, the words come out in a rush. All the while he is staring wide-eyed at the rendering vat Kezner uses to make tallow, and knows full well how this will end.

Ugh, what year is it again?
Well, well, well. It's 2011! Did Santa bring you everything you wanted this year? New dice? Pathfinder books? A trip to the Mojave Wasteland, perhaps? It was a very nerdy Christmas at our house, with a lot of Ugly Dolls and plush Companion Cubes and giant squishy dice under the tree for The Kid, and new games and hardware for The Wife and I. There was a lot of eating and drinking between Christmas and New Years, including a White Elephant party we threw wherein I got a bacon scented car air freshener that smells like bac-os that were stored in an old boot for a year. Now it's the first day of the first week of the new year and, well, it's time to get a fresh eye on things.

This eagle is stunned by all the awesome
Like them or not, Muse has an awesome song called Knights of Cydonia, with an equally awesome video that you need to go watch right now. Go. Okay, back with us? Awesome, right? Yes, I know this is old news, just humor me here. I first got hip to this song through Guitar Hero III, and then to this hysterically campy video through some casual YouTube surfing. I watched, mouth agape, and in the silence I looked around at Jacko and Munin and Riff and Shade and everybody else and said, "We need to play this game, right now!" I do that a lot. I'll see some crazy thing like the Knights of Cydonia video or get really into a book (or series) and decide that I need to do some role-playing in that setting. So, let's talk about great and/or hilarious settings we want to play in, shall we?
