About Deeper in the Game

Who I’m writing for

Geeks of color and marginalized folks.  Those of us who have always been at creative forefronts and had our fantasies and happy mental escapes policed and harried by the usual Hatebro kind of crowd.   Those of us who love to make stories together, with a bit of dice rolling and unexpected outcomes along the way.

I’ve been playing RPGs since the mid 80s and writing about RPGs online in various places since the early 2000s.  Some of my ideas or ways of communicating said ideas has evolved, and some are pretty much the same.


I’ve started breaking out key posts on the sidebar under appropriate categories.

The numbered links indicate the order I think people will get the most from reading in that order, the unnumbered ones are pretty much good at any point.

I’ve made it easy not to be stupid, so don’t be stupid

The comments are off on nearly every post these days.

Some people, for some strange reason, take that as an indication that I secretly want to talk to them, and that, they should either go looking through old posts OR go stalk me down on other websites.  It’s been mostly creepy racist white dudes who hold grudges because “It’s all they have”.

Needless to say – the more effort and commitment you put into being terrible will be noted as such.


If you think your gaming or game design has been improved by what I write, please hook me up with a few bucks at my Patreon.  I’m no longer in desperate need of cash like when I was fighting or recovering from cancer, but the extra cash is appreciated.

“I would like to use your writing!”

Thanks for the thought!  As usual under copyright law, you can quote and attribute appropriately in other works.  I do not give permission for my posts or writing to be used in entirety, including as translations.

(A number of years back, someone decided to publish a book using some of my theory without notifying me.  When I contacted them, they “claimed” they found my work “anonymously” posted in another language.  Either way, people can’t act right, so the answer is a flat no, all around, these days.  Sorry.)
