The cat is out of the bag! The Murder Hobos with their Transmuter Banker and Spy Bard and Undead King friends are moving to their new permanent home on Critical Hits under their dedicated column, Dungeonomics! They produce some of the premier RPG content on the Internet and I’m proud to join their collective and become part of the Borg.
Being part of the DC gaming scene is super cool. Washington DC is turning into the Silicon Valley of RPG game development. So many awesome people live here and contribute to the constantly living and growing body of RPG content, it’s amazing.
I started blogging in 1997 (I went and looked it up) and most of the time it’s been about random slice-of-life stuff. And then up in a bad chain Mexican restaurant in Michigan I went off on how I couldn’t stand D&D5e Tieflings because they weren’t true to the (superior) Planescape originals. That worked, so I decided, hey, it’s my blog, I’ll write about what interests me. Turns out it interests you, too.
But! Since now about 1000 of you are hanging out, you deserve a FAQ.
Also, big shout out to Illuminerdy, another excellent online RPG blog you should follow. Like, now.
Will you be tweeting/G+ing/FBing your links on a weekly post?
Yep. I will still personally man some of my personal social networking. You don’t need to go anywhere if you get the links from twitter or G+. If you get them from RSS or an email on posting, you will need to move, unfortunately.
But if you sign up to the Critical Hits RSS feed, you will get even more great content! This is like an everything for nothing deal.
Do you have enough ideas to keep this going for a while?
Where power, money, violence, and magic intersects is a well with no known bounds. Although I take people’s ideas and expand them all the time.
Will you still be sticking to your schedule?
I’m still writing on Sunday mornings with plans to publish on Mondays.
Are you planning on publishing your essays?
Not in the first half of 2015.
Are you making any money off this move?
Well considering I’m going from -$10.99/month for hosting to $0 a month, it’s a net gain of $10.99 a month.
Although if I ever get a logo, I am printing it and “Given an infinite amount of time and actual economic pressures, all adventuring groups become neutral evil” on a t-shirt and selling them.
Is your old blog coming down?
It’s expensive to maintain and I will likely start ignoring it. But I am going to wait until the traffic moves over cleanly.
I don’t know. I don’t know what I am going to do with it. If anything.
What about your Nephilim FATE Conversion?
Yes, I have a mostly finished conversion of Nephilim to FATE. It gets constant traffic all day. If I shut down this blog it will need a new home. I’m not sure what that new home is. That is TBD.
Are you attending any cons?
Gaming conventions? Dunno. I’m well-known hermit who never goes into public like Thomas Pynchon.
What is the best place to find you online?
Twitter. I’m a junky. Follow me at @multiplexer.
Do you truly have a dog named after Arthur Schopenhauer?
Yep. He helps me write. It’s his job. He also really likes reading /r/economics.
