About

Hey, my name’s Chris. If you’re here, you likely know who I am. But just in case: I am an advocate for change, game developer, writer, and scotch drinker with a dream to create a more inclusive world through geekery. That sounds simple but it’s a hard one to fulfill, and well-past-time. I need your help to make this happen, to help me to supplement my income which will make time to keep the fires burning.

What are my credits?

I’m the creator of the three-time Gold-ENnie-Award-winning Harlem Unbound. I’ve worked on Cthulhu Confidential, Deadman Stomp - Call of Cthulhu Starter Set, Out of the Woods, A Thousand Years of Night and lastly, Haunted West which I wrote, self-published, and managed. There are also a few soon-to-be-released items from Chaosium, Onyx Path, Paizo, and more.

Why would you consider backing me here?
You want to make safe spaces for diverse voices to be heard. You want to see diverse creatives making beautiful, engaging and authentic pieces that feature people of color. Or, you know me and despite being tired of hearing me talk about this stuff, want to support my work.

The Skinny
This is a monthly subscription for people who want to support me in my mission to create a more inclusive space by developing new products that highlight the experience of marginalized people. These products may include role-playing games (RPGs), novels, magazines, and more. Every little bit helps that dream come to life.

Your support helps me hire people, back other projects, and keep the creative lights going. My process involves producing sketches, written ideas, playtest materials, and group-think sessions over the long haul. As this comes together, expect updates and insights into my process with a healthy dose of general geek talk.

What You'll Get
In 2019, patrons get these perks in addition to any pledge level goal.
  • One or more blog posts a month about gaming, media and so forth.
  • A discount on any items at the Darker Hue Studios online store.
  • Two draft excerpts from Haunted West based on tier level
  • Occasional digital ‘thank you’ swag.
  • My undying gratitude.
