Love and the Time of RPGs

Thankfully I have a wife who values my life as a writer.

The Great Kingdom, a Documentary

**UPDATE** I was chatting with Andrew Pascal, who is producing this film, and he clarified a bit about The Great Kingdom. He’d been to my house to shoot footage for Dungeons & Dragons: The Documentary, but that is a different project than The Great Kingdom. So…we weren’t left on the cutting room floor for The […]
