What Are We Up To? (part three)

The long awaited Mexican wrestling roleplaying game Darren Watts and I wrote has at last come out! That's right: Lucha Libre Hero is for sale in stores across the English speaking world and the Internet.

Hero roustabouts Darren Watts and Jason Walters put on their magical wrestling masks, get cranked on tequila, and create for you the ultimate gaming guide to monster-hunting, gangster-fighting Mexican wrestlers in Lucha Libre Hero! Dive right into the weird, fight-filled world of Mexican wrestling adventure movies as you and your masked cohorts save the villagers from werewolves, help the police round up vicious criminals, and then head out for a night on the town with beautiful women!

What Are We Up To? (part two)

As some of you also know Tina and I run a business here at Midian Ranch. More specifically, we run a branch of a corporation known as DOJ Inc here at the ranch. DOJ is the parent corporation which Darren Watts, Steve Long, several others, and myself formed in 2001 to acquire Hero Games from Cybergames. Our division is known as DOJ Logistics (or DOJ-L for short), and it handles shipping, receiving, storage, and convention support for Hero Games, Indy Press Revolution, Burning Wheel, and several other companies. Besides Tina and myself it employs Tara, a friend of ours who lives in Gerlach.

The Cover Of My Novel. Pretty Cool, Huh?

What Are We Up To? (part one)

This isn't strictly about the ranch, but as some of you know already I'm part owner of a small publishing imprint called Blackwrym Games and Fiction (www.blackwyrm.com). Besides such award-winning game books as Scott Bennie's Gestalt: The Hero Within and Lux Aeternum, we also publish a line of experimental fantasy novellas of between 40,000 - 80,0000 words in length: just the sort of thing to take on a long flight or to enjoy on a warm Saturday afternoon. Our titles include Lynn Tincher's psychic thriller Afterthoughts, Dirk Vandereyken's necromancy courtroom drama Baour: Strands of Death , and my own military fantasy novel The Vast White.

So, if you're interested in what we're doing over at Blackwyrm, go check it out!
