My name is Graeme Laird, I go online by the ridiculous handle of Doc Destructo, and I’m an individual that is about making games, and making games better. From tabletop roleplaying to videogames, I want to entertain while exploring principles of design, themes and story, all the while refining my craft and sharing with you my process and opinions. That, and make some really, really metal stuff in the process.

I take a working class approach to game development, that game development is as much an art as it is a science. I believe that there’s more than one way to do things from both ends of things, but I also happen to think that while theory is all well and good, developing a real grasp of these concepts comes from actually doing them. That’s why I’m here- to do, learn and share. That, and commit to the dream of any individual with anticapitalist streak, which is turning what I actually want to do into an honest living. It just so happens that what I want to do is make cool stuff for you. That’s what I’d call a good deal in this economy, frankly.

This is a thing I’m calling Human?

What's Up for 2018?

BASIC rolls on, as Otherlore's initial test release draws near. Strange emanations of greater positivity about games?

Streaming?

Yes.

You'll get my gratitude for the can of pop or donut you decided I get to have on your dime. This means quite a bit to me, actually.

Get all my assorted writings, essay content, snippets and other bits I release as I come up with them, including Volatile Processes, Oh, I'm Not a Doctor and Gross Bodily Harm.
Recognized Human
$10 or more per month 1 patron
You still get all the writing and articles I put out, and on top of that, here's flavor country: if you're a Recognized Human for 3 months or more, you get access (for the next 12 months) to PDF files of all the BASIC System Games and Major Expansions as they come out.
(Of course, if you keep being a Recognized Human for more than three months, your access gets extended for every month after that.)

For an extra two bucks, you get everything a Recognized Human gets, on the same terms, as well as Incremental Updates to the BASIC System games I'm putting out, either stuff that's destined to find its way into an expansion down the line, or just small, quirky, fun stuff for folks with a little bit extra to share.
