Where do we go from here?

Having taken a look at the very beginning, now it's time to ask, as Buffy and the gang once sang, "where do we go from here"?

For those not in the know, James Daswey has bought a controlling interest in Vigilance Press and is going to be running things from here on out.

What does this mean?

Well, obviously we're going to change the way we do business. Longtime readers of the blog will know that I love this idea. Change is not something to be feared.

Here's a little secret: I hate business.

I ran Vigilance Press as a means to an end. Namely, I got to make the books I wanted to make the way I wanted to make them.

The USHER Dossiers is a great example of this. I love that book. Love it, love it, love it.

But Vigilance Press was growing, and taking more of my time from a management standpoint. This meant I was writing less and less, which gives me phantom limb pain.

Now James is an artist and a damn good one, and he has an artist's eye. So expect a lot of visual sprucing up of the old place as we move forward.

As for what won't change, you can still expect to hear me blathering on here, and in your game books. I am continuing to work on Nuclear Sunset: Northeast, which will probably be the next thing you see from me, as well as some super secret projects that James and I are really excited about.

The future is here and it will be interesting, not to mention fun!


  1. Sounds like from here you keep making sweet RPG products. My one suggestion is look into POD or some other way to get some of your smaller products in print. now has a POD service. I own everything vigilance for ICONS in PDF. I'd gladly pay again for most all of them in print.

  2. Congrats on this going forward. More writing from you is a good thing. Will James be pisting here as well?
