Setting: The Staff, The Light and The Sword

“The One is perfect love. The One is perfect justice. The two cannot be separated. To ignore one is to dim the other, though to serve one above the other is understood.” – Martin Mercier, Celestial Chorister Those who serve the One are haunted by duality. They are difficult to trust. They have earned your […]

Eclipse Mobile App Concept

I have had a background in mobile augmented and mobile driven LARP projects for going on 5 years. It works, and is probably the way forward for parlor style games into the future. Mage: Eclipse could be such a game, taking the ‘unplayable’ LARP of Mage and turning into something nuanced and usable. Below are […]

Setting: The Second Inquisition

ECHO TEAM: “Control, target is cornered. We are not getting black body readings though we’ve observed black body adjacent abilities, please advise.” CONTROLLER: “Echo, hold position.

Setting: Syndicate Ascendant

“Humanity made itself clear. It’s not interested in Enlightenment or Transcendence or whatever trash the philosopher kings and shamans were peddling. They want two things – for everything to be free, and to have more than everyone else. That’s all they want. And I say we strip mine reality to give it to them until […]

Setting: The World is Thinning

“The world is thinning. While we looked up, things bent sideways. There are alleyways with cave paintings. There are trees that whisper of their thirst for blood in the park. In the thin parts, the thin places, that weren’t there before.” – Henry, Hollow One Seer, Cincinnati The Storm came and blew other worlds away. […]
