I am an unapologetic leftist who's been playing tabletop RPGs since 1981.
After much hand-wringing, I've decided to leave the Pathfinder community for many reasons... the main one being that my taste in RPGs has changed.
These days, my primary RPG areas of interest are rules-light, narrative-focused story-games; particularly the intersection of story-games and Old School Renaissance (OSR)-style play.
My current RPG projects include...
Naked City Blues, a hard-boiled/film noir detective RPG set in the 1940s. Powered by the Apocalypse.
Ultraviolet World, a stand-alone hack of Dungeon World for playing in Luka Rejec's heavy metal science-fantasy point-crawl setting The Ultraviolet Grasslands.
Echoes of the Void, a "Rooted in Trophy" sci-fi/horror RPG. [Link to the beta playtest edition pending completion of a playable version.]
Regular contributor to the Miscellany of Gauntlet Publishing's Codex magazine.
Follow me on Twitter! I mostly post about TTRPGs and leftist politics.
You can also find me as a regular contributor to The Gauntlet Forums, and at the Discords of Magpie Games, the Happy Jacks RPG community, and the Trophy Role-Playing Game.

I occasionally sell of parts of my RPG collection that I don't want anymore at my eBay store (which isn't always active).
