Hi, I'm James.

I'm a writer and a game runner. I've been telling stories for as long as I've been able to talk. I love comic books and science-fiction/fantasy, and have been writing poetry and fiction since I figured out that scribbles on paper can be magic.

I have been involved in role-playing games since my cousin first introduced me to the D&D Basic Red Box around 1983. I've been consistently running tabletop RPGs since that time. Recently, I've been streaming a Fate Accelerated game on RaigeMage's Twitch Channel. You can see some of the sessions here.

I started LARPing in 1992, at the impressionable age of 14. I've been LARPing ever since. I joined a LARP staff in 2008 and have participated in running several LARPs for groups as small as 20 to as large as 75 people.

From 2014-2017 I wrote, directed, and ran (with the help of an amazing staff) The Fifth Gate LARP, a live-action role-paying game that spanned two worlds - one, a high fantasy world of Champions, the other a post-apocalyptic steampunkish world of Survivors. I launched it with the assistance of an awesome community and a successful Kickstarter Campaign. I'm sharing things from that campaign at my website Beyond Fifth Gate.

With that behind me, I’m looking to spend my creative energies creating works of fiction and settings and aventures for table-top role-playing games. The settings and adventures will be using various OSG concepts  and systems from a number of different games, including DnDd20FateDungeon World and Blades In The Dark.

Each month, I will produce a work of fiction, an essay on LARPing, a table top RPG adventure or table top RPG setting.  I hope you'll support me in creating these things, and celebrating my love for storytelling.

I’ll hire someone to help with layout and proofreading to make everything look nicer!  This will cover software and me paying someone who knows things about stuff like this.
