20 July » My Gen Con Schedule - Gen Con 2018 is rapidly approaching, and I’m scrambling to get ready for the “best four days in gaming.” I’d like to share my schedule so you know where I’ll be. Maybe we’ll run into each other!
1 July » Video Archive Now Available - I’ve been making videos on my YouTube channel for a while, including series exploring the core mechanics of various RPGs, explaining terms and jargon of the RPG lexicon, and making characters for different systems. Now those videos are archived here so you can catch them all in one place. Head over to the Video page now and catch up.
18 May » Wolf Spider (a supervillain for Fate Core) - Eric Nostrum was just minding his own business, working in the Outfit’s warehouse drug lab, when a bunch of costumed freaks busted in. One of three workers charged with defending the lab in just such an event, Nostrum took a dose of an experimental combat drug designed to give anyone powers for a short time.
1 May » Welcome Back! - It’s time for spring cleaning, and part of that included updating the Nothing Ventured Games site with a new (and hopefully improved) design.
1 January » Numbers for 2017 - 2017 marked my fifth year offering gaming products for sale via OneBookShelf (DriveThruRPG, DriveThruCards, etc.). In total, I sold 273 units (PDFs, POD cards and books) and had $304.41 is earnings. In both units sold and earnings collected, 2017 was my best year yet selling through these sites. I’ve included an interactive chart below that displays how many units of each product sold in each category of POD card decks, PDFs, Card+PDF bundles, and POD softcover book + PDF bundles.
