Heya, Halloween weekend is just a few weeks away! I’m so pleased to share with you my schedule for GameHole Con. It’s packed this year, so be sure to say hello!

Back in November 2018, I had played in Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition game that was live-streamed to benefit the Extra Life for Kids charity. A. Happy “Hap” Gnome is a silly multi-class (4th Level Rogue, 1st Level Bard) character created for an Extra Life Live Stream charity event during Gamehole Con 2018. The game, which was run by Mike Mearls, included John “JinJur” Kovalic, Lysa “Oooh, I’m an angry fish!” Chen, Pat “Pala-Dad” Kilbane, and Rob “Correllon” Wieland.
Now, I’m pleased to announce you can download Hap’s character, his sordid backstory, and a new Bard College called the “School of Bard Knocks” on DMsGuild.com. A. Happy Gnome was illustrated by John Kovalic. A portion of the proceeds will automatically be donated to Extra life.
Heya, I am happy (and ashamed) to report I was interviewed by Jonathan Mayberry for the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers I’m a member of! The interview is from November, and in Jonathan’s wisdom it went live when my new Firefly Encyclopedia from Titan Books debuted.
You can read my IAMTW.org interview on the site, and check out tons of great interviews with other members. I’ll be cursing my In Box for burying my notifications for at least ten minutes…right before freezing my proverbial bum off. It’s cold out there so stay warm!
Maia Strongheart stands alone against the world. A cabal of conspirators has framed her for the death of her own mother, the Sun Queen, and they intend to usurp the throne from her family. To prove her own innocence and reclaim her birthright, Maia must step into the Proving Grounds to complete a trial that will stretch her combat skills to the limit. Will the Wizened’s chosen daughter vanquish her foes in the arena? Or will she be overwhelmed by the conspirators and their evil aspirations?
If you’ve never played a solo game before, this is a great place to start. There is a training game and six different gameplay modules. Once you’ve learned the basics, add a single module or mix and match to your tastes. If you’re feeling truly adventurous, put them all together for a true test of your gladiatorial combat skills!
Proving Grounds is a unique title that’ll be released this Spring from Renegade Game Studios. The release is a solo card game plus novella! I designed the fantasy world and wrote the novella titled: “Only the Strongest Has the Heart of a Wizened Queen”.
You can pre-order Proving Grounds now from the Renegade Games store. Exciting!
