Through Gamer Goggles Season 4 Kickstarter Funded!

 Featured, Kickstarter  Comments Off on Through Gamer Goggles Season 4 Kickstarter Funded!
Mar 272015

Have you heard the news? Our Season 4 Kickstarter has reached its funding goal and is in its final days. It has been a rough journey though; more on that in a moment. I just want to thank all of you who have pledged and shared this on different social media groups.  Without you this wouldn’t have happened.  Now that it’s almost over I want to really make it fun, but first I’m asking that you read the story and then I’ll share what is in store for the rest of the journey.

When the project first started I was all fired up to do all of the social media and post updates that needed to be done. Then it hit.  I lost my hard drive and before I knew it a week had gone by, without any work on my Kickstarter being done.  In that time my wife managed to fix it up for me.  But the time I had to work was short lived, I was summoned for jury duty.  Which is nothing like you see on television, but it is time consuming.   I hoped and prayed that I wouldn’t be selected, but I was. It caused me to move my work schedule around a bit and I lost three days of good social media and posting to the Kickstarter project.

On my last day of jury duty I weighed the potential of canceling the Kickstarter.  I went back and forth measuring the pros and cons of what the better choice would be. This carried on late into the night, until I decided I’d cancel it in the morning and relaunch in a week or two.  Tired, I went to bed. I didn’t sleep well.

In the morning I woke to a nearly funded campaign. Instilled with excitement, I rushed to Hootesuite and hit my social media network calling out to all gamers.  It wasn’t long before Marc Tassin finished funding the project. (A quick side note, Marc is the current mastermind behind the Gen Con Writer’s Symposium and the Pathfinder setting World of Aetaltis: The Temple of Modren.)

I’ve spent the last 24 hours totally distracted from my “real” life by the Kickstarter.  I have been both distraught and ecstatic at the same time. Distraught because I haven’t really accomplished all of what I set out to do and I kind of feel like I failed.  I know the situations that arose weren’t really my fault, but I still feel responsible. Not to mention that I haven’t really had fun with it, which is always a part of  my plan. Ecstatic because, well, we’re funded and I’m about to have some fun.

I mentioned I was constantly distracted by this Kickstarter.  Well, the result of my distraction is that I’m going to shake it up a bit.  I’m reworking the stretch goals (actually changed some yesterday) and how they are obtained.

First I’m going to ask you for your help and in return I’ll add new unique stretch goals.  What is cool about this is that you get to be a part of the idea without even pledging.  Here is what you can do to participate.

  1. Visit the Kickstarter.
  2. Click Share – a pop up box will open.
  3. Find the Facebook icon and click it.

At 150 shares I will unlock a road to Gen Con 2015 living article.  Well a page really that will document not only my endeavors of this journey, but stories that exhibitors, publishers and game designers who are planning to attend the show are ready to share.  The first of these will be my thoughts about Gen Con and this whole Religious Freedom Bill.

I will unlock another “share” stretch goal every time the number doubles (300, 600, 1200).  I really don’t know what they will be yet, but they will be blog page related or an improvement to the functionality of the blog.

Next up we will be adding supporter related stretch goals.  You don’t have to pledge a lot to be involved, heck a dollar gives you a “number”.  These stretch goals will be 25 and 45 for now, I’ll add more if needed.  The first will open up the next stretch goal waiting to be unlocked.  Will you be number 25 or 45? I hope so!

There are only four days left, but I know we can blow some of these stretch goals out of the water, especially with these new and unique stretch goals.

Again I’d like to thank all of you for being a part of this community.

UnchainedPathfinder Player Companion: Pathfinder Unchained (Hardcover)



The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game contains numerous rules considered sacred by players and GMs alike. Since the system itself was based upon RPG “technology” already more than 20 years old, “backwards compatibility” often meant sticking with the familiar, even if tradition was filled with cobwebs and decades-old assumptions. Pathfinder Unchained dares to take a fresh look at the system itself, altering some of the fundamentals of the game and giving fresh optional takes on classic rules.

Great Article on Plea Gen Con Sent to the Governor of Indiana

 Gaming News  Comments Off on Great Article on Plea Gen Con Sent to the Governor of Indiana
Mar 252015

This is a hot topic right now and I’m really going to avoid giving my opinion until I’v thought things threw a little bit more.  Why? Well I’m christian which presents several possible avenues to consider when thinking about such an issue, especially since I’ve avoided them for a long time.   Avoided, isn’t the most accurate description, the truth is I’ve veered away because I think making a choice would involve passing judgement – which as a Christian is easily misconstrued or presented as bigotry.  Bigotry goes against the love message of Christ.

The issue that Gen Con has decided to make a stand on isn’t really about the choice of the individual, it’s about protecting the rights of those who make or have made a choice.

Well, that was more than I wanted to say before thinking I through. You can read the article I was referring you to at Polygon and another at New Now Next.
