Don't think you're seeing the leading edge of the hobby by reading Game Chef games. Game Chef is about the internal battle. Can I complete a game? Can I find a better personal understanding of what "complete" means for an RPG? But the...

Remember when people came to The Forge in 2004 or 2005 and were frustrated there were too many finished conversations that felt like a barrier to entry? Well, my recommendation is to start reading and playing games from now. Start with PWYW games. Give yourself a...

Finally realized I can delete the "More" button in Thunderbird.

Can't tell you how many times I've accidentally archived an entire thread because the delete button moved.

Wonder how many couples had to be talked out of using "In the Air Tonight" by Phil Collins for their couple's dance.

Worse, I wonder how many weren't.

As part of this year's title audit, uploading "Immortal Clay" books to draft2digital and PublishDrive so I can get them in all the smaller stores.

They both ask: "Does this book contain adult content?"

Me: "Well... no. Not in the way *you* mean, at least. But by all you hold sacred, don't give it to children."

Dear artist putting out CDs in 2019.

Hi. Remember when it was really cool to make clear-backed plastic jewel cases so you could see some artwork behind the CD? I remember being wowed when that first came out.
