Hi!  I'm Steven "Bull" Ratkovich!  I'm a long, long time gamer, writer, game designer, and self-proclaimed Alpha Geek who is into almost anything and everything geeky, and I'm hoping to expand my horizons and have the freedom to just create things.  

What things, you may ask?

Yes.  That.  That.  That too.  Maybe a little of that.  No, definitely not that though, sorry.  Yes.  yes that as well.  That too, if I find the time.  Not sure that one's legal in most states.  No one wants that one, trust me.  And yes, most definitely that.

My big project currently is a series of novels called "Apoch's Twilight", a novel about a man named Bull who is run over by a truck and wakes up inside an MMO... An MMO based on a tabletop game that he created!

It's some pretty basic ISekai/RPGLit fiction, but I'm having a good time writing it. Right now I'm publishing the chapters to Patreon in sections, trying to write at least 5,000 words a week. I'm also publishing this publicly on The Royal Road web fiction site, posting one chapter per week (also around 5,000 words). Patrons are at least three chapters ahead of the story, and you will have the opportunity to influence the story or name NPCs and the like as we progress.

My second big ongoing project starting in the beginning of 2019 will be "Shadowrun Missions: The Fanfiction". It will be an ongoing, serialized story about a team of shadowrunners, using the backdrop of Shadowrun Missions Season 4. I'm planning to post one chapter of that per week, minimum of 2000 words.

I also do other stuff, though right now only occasionally. I do YouTube videos sometimes, other fiction, and most especially I do Shadowrun stuff, fiction, rules, and gear.

So thank you for taking the time to check this out, and if you are interested in supporting me I will be forever grateful.  Thanks!

Your support means the world to me!  You are awesome, you rock, and you'll get access to everything I create. Chummers get access to my serial fiction, currently Apoch's Twilight and Shadowrun Missions, at least a month in advance of it's public release.

At this level, you rock, you're awesome, you get all my videos and creative writing efforts, you're invited to the Discord, plus I'd like to work with you, give you a chance to put your own personal stamp on things I'm working on!

Add an NPC or piece of gear to a game I'm writing, or a character to appear in a piece of fiction.  

Or, choose a focus for one of my YouTube vidoes.  Pick a game for me to play and record, or request a topic for a Bulldrek or Shadowtalk video!  

Or something else!  I'm open to ideas.  Drop me a line and we'll talk!

You rock, are awesome, mean the world to me, get access to everything I create, are invited to the Discord, will get some nifty swag in the mail every three months, and...  I want to game with you! We'll arrange a night sometime where we can hang out and play a video game together online or I'll arrange a once a month online roleplaying game of some kind and save you a seat!  Whatever your preference!  

And if you make it out to a gaming convention I'll be at, I'll make time one evening to hang out with you, drink, tell stupid stories, and play something, whether it be a card game, board game, RPG, or just a rousing game of "Drunk, LARPer, or Crazy?" :)

Wow.  Ok.  You are amazing.  No, seriously, this is a true level of amazing that cannot be surpassed.  You get all of the above, and each month you support me at this level, I will create (or have created) something for you.  We'll discuss this one on one, but some options here are:

  • A month-long Let's Play dedicated to you, of a game of your choosing.  Minimum of 2 hours of recording per week.
  • An RPG adventure written specifically for you, theme and game system chosen by you (Assuming I'm familiar enough to write a game for it).
  • A custom action figure for one of your characters.  I'll work with one of my many talented artist friends to customize either a 1:18 scale (3 3/4" GI Joe scale) or 1:12 scale (6" Marvel Legends scale) into one of your RPG characters!  (this one may take some time to complete)
  • Something else?  Got an idea, pitch it at me!  We'll find a way! :)
