What I learned taking apart a DCC module…

Many different things are going through my head this week as far as book production goes, so I decided I’d take a look at a Gold Best Seller. I’m not sure what it takes to become “Gold,” but I’m guessing based on some Googling that it’s somewhere between 1,000 and 2,000 sales of the product…

Infinity Loop: March 2014 Report

Wow. Just wow. That sums up March pretty well for Moebius Adventures. Best. Month. Ever. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Amazing web traffic. A ton of product sales. And we’re chugging into April with a 20+ page draft in the works for the Big Book of Little Spaces: Haunts! Let’s break this down a…

Infinity Loop: Some News

Happy 2014! Last week I looked back at 2013 and some of the great milestones we hit with Moebius Adventures. Quite honestly for the first year back publishing, I couldn’t be happier. This week I want to talk about a few efforts underway to hopefully do a better job of getting capital where it needs…

Infinity Loop: A Winding Road

Though I usually talk about Moebius Adventures-specific publishing plans, decisions, and conundrums in this column I’m going to write about something slightly different this week. Thursday saw the publication of my first paid freelance RPG project. We’ll get to what that project was in a minute, but I want to talk about the significance of…

Infinity Loop: Five (Potential) Problems with Rotating Pages

So this past weekend I spent some time taking the standard portrait layout for One Spot and turning it on its side for a landscaped version. For One Spot #3: The Reeve I already have nearly four pages of content… Three pages with three columns and images and one page that will be the map…

Interesting Statistics for Moebius Adventures

With all the recent activity on the blogosphere regarding 2010 results for small RPG publishers (Nevermet Press here, Stargazer Games here and Rite Designs here), I thought I’d throw mine out there too because I was curious. When I first published the Moebius Adventures Core Rules book back in 2007, I gave away more than 1100 copies in…

Book Review: Open Game Table: The Anthology of Roleplaying Game Blogs, Volume 2

When I reviewed Open Game Table: The Anthology of Roleplaying Game Blogs, Volume 1 back in October 2009, I felt it was a monumental and worthwhile compilation of game material from around the blogosphere. Jonathan Jacobs somehow managed to do everything from curating the articles to having the book printed and available. The result was…

Pre-made Art for Independent Publishers

Let me start out by saying that I am definitely not an artist. My artistic skills peaked when I was 12 or 13 and have had plenty of time to regress since then. But I understand the importance of artwork in roleplaying materials. Text by itself, even when you play with layouts, fonts, and lines…

Small Press Week Links for Friday, October 23, 2009

Hi all… Instead of my usual Friday links post today, I’d like to focus on entries in the Small Press Week effort for the RPG Blog Network. There were some great games covered, including my own. Check ’em out! AllGeektOut covered  Berin Kinsman’s Gaming Toybox product: http://allgeektout.com/2009/10/20/spw-berin-kinsman/ I covered the Open Game Table book from…
