On the Road Again

Posted by Rampant Coyote on March 9, 2015

I’m off on another exciting adventure as a lead software engineer for crane simulation systems. This week, my journeys take me back to the land of my teen years, the weird-but-lovable state of Maryland. Unfortunately, I don’t yet know what my accommodations or my Internet access is going to look like yet. Since I don’t […]

Frayed Knights: I love it when a plan comes together

I don’t really mean to plug this thing, though I guess I really am. As always – buyer beware. I doubt it (or I wouldn’t be a backer), but there’s nothing preventing a Kickstarter-backed developer from taking the money and running. Or simply screwing things up royally.

Rampant Coyote Interview at RPGWatch

Posted by Rampant Coyote on March 2, 2015

I’ve got an interview over at RPGWatch today. Check it out! As you’d expect, it’s mainly about gaming and game-making, but there’s a little bit about my writing as well. I’m actually a little afraid to re-read it right now. I can’t recall my state of mind when I answered Couchpotato’s questions, but I suspect I […]
