Cristoforo: Reviving Victorian fonts with a... →
Cristoforo is my name for a pair of new fonts reviving classic American-Victorian art nouveau metal types by Hermann Ihlenburg: Columbus (1892), Columbus Initials (upright swash capitals) and the italic companion American Italic (1902). Cristoforo Regular will have some 300+ glyphs. Cristoforo has a huge history here. Its predecessor, Columbus, was the typeface used to create the logo for the Call...
Roll20: A new virtual tabletop focused on ease of... →

It’s currently raising money to fund development during a closed beta, and plans to...
Midgard Tales →
Great adventures are the foundation of any tabletop RPG. The Dragonlance series, the Vault of the Drow, Tomb of Horrors, Sunless Citadel, Rise of the Runelords—and even Open Design’s own Courts of the Shadow Fey have all defined adventure for a generation of gamers. The Midgard Tales project aims to do to the same, with 13 adventures that reach out to remake classic themes, such as a...
Ogre Designer's Edition →
Ogre was the first game I ever designed. It came out in 1977! It’s been out of print for years, except for the miniatures rules. I’m constantly getting requests to bring it back, and in 2008 we started working on a new edition … a “designer’s edition” that would be as big and beautiful as any wargame you’ve ever seen. Even as planned right now, the game is huge. The current prototype weighs...
Metamorphosis Alpha RPG →
Metamorphosis Alpha was the very first science-fiction roleplaying game, written and designed by James M. Ward and published by TSR in 1976.

Now Signal Fire Studios is prepared to relaunch Metamorphosis Alpha as a self-contained RPG with setting material by James M. Ward...

Quicksilver Worldbook for Pathfinder →
What would it be like if a quaint medieval fantasy realm had humans, goblins, and elves living peacefully side-by-side? What if there were psionic powers? What if there was a strange substance that “mind-mages” could shape, and imbue with mystical abilities? And, what if that process occasionally went awry, producing creatures of living metal that immediately turned on their...
Witch Girls: Book of Shadows →
Witch Girls Adventures did the impossible by bringing table top role-playing to a new and under appreciated demographic (Girls ages 11-16). Now two years later we’re preparing our second edition, “Witch Girls: Book of Shadows” . Our goal is a bigger print run and a full color book with the same easy rules and character generation and expansive family friendly world.
The Urban Tarot →
The Urban Tarot Deck began in 2003 as a tie-in to a RPG called the Zero Movement written by Nick Fortugno. However, the project was never fully realized. Since then, I’ve continued to add to the deck and show at gaming and fantasy conventions all over the country and received a ton of great feedback. So now I’m aiming to finally complete the set and distribute it myself. With the help...

Myth & Magic Player's Guide - 2E Revived and... →
2nd Edition was wonderful and unique. Not only did it maintain most of the game’s 1st Edition mechanics, but it created more options for the player and delivered to the Game Master a horde of awesome product.
