Hello, fellow mooks and monsters. I’m here with some news.
Rob Ward and I are going on a bit of a podcast vacation. We’re a bit behind in recording, and with last week’s technical difficulties we’re feeling the need to reassess and revitalize the show. When we’re back, don’t expect any huge changes. We’re going to keep recording, but we need time to build up the buffer again. From Rob and me, have a great break.
We’ll be back before you know it.
Thanks for listening (And reading).
Hey, everyone, just a quick notice that due to some technical difficulties with my main computer this week’s episode of the Of Mooks and Monsters podcast will be delayed to later today.
Thanks for listening, and my apologies for the inconvenience.
Hey everyone, Tim here.
Rob and I recorded an episode of the podcast this week, but due to some technical problems, we didn’t think it was quality enough to share it with the public.
We’re working on sound quality. Hopefully, we’ll be able to release again next week.
Thanks for your understanding.
And, as always, thanks for listening.
I have hit my stride over the past couple weeks in designing stuff for this RPG I’ve had on my mind for the last 5 years.
The RPG? A tabletop game based on S. John Ross’ Risus, the Anything RPG.
I call my version of it Risus Hack, but perhaps I should think of a different name because of how much the game has grown from the base I started running as a senior in college.
I think it’s still a simple game, though one with a lot of room for fiddling.
As I get restarted on “Spurring the Beast” (Sequel to last year’s first book, “Hunter and Seed”) I keep having RPGs in the back of my thoughts. That may have something to do with running an RPG podcast every week. And, oh boy. Fans of the Of Mooks and Monsters podcast are in for a treat over the next few weeks.
I have to credit the show with a lot of my recent enthusiasm for games and stories. Turns out, going back to my roots as a game master and player has been good for my brain. Soon, I hope to have a version of Risus Hack available for download. I am not sure if I should charge for it. And if I do charge, how much should I?
I guess I had better get to work.
I’ve put a lot of work into this game. I look forward to sharing it in the near-future.
Thanks for reading.
Tenlyres is still available for Pre-Order. Buy me a cup of coffee and get a full novel in return.
Happy holidays, everybody!
Just here with a brief announcement that the podcast, “Of Mooks and Monsters” is taking a break until January. Hope you all travel safely and stay warm through winter months (Or endure whatever weather our part of the world dishes out in its place).
Take it easy everyone, and have a happy new year.
Hey everyone, the site is working again!
While this place was having technical difficulties I created a new place where soon you will be able to listen to every episode in Of Mooks & Monsters, and eventually read articles about Game Mastering.
Once everything is running smoothly there, this site will only link to the podcast site and will return to being a place primarily for my fiction.
For now, though, I will be putting up the latest episodes of the podcast on both sites.
Thank you for your patience.
Here is ofmooksandmonsters.com. It’s still wet behind the ears but should work more reliably.
I have been swamped, and exhausted today. My apologies if any of you were looking forward to the next episode. I may be retooling the show soon. I am finding it difficult to podcast solo.
Anyway, Tenlyres Chapter 18 drops here tomorrow.
Have a good time until then.
