Crusade of Kings

I met R. Scott Peoples through his history blogging (as "Unitary Moonbat") at the DailyKos political blog, where I used to be fairly active in its early days. He was doing a long series on the Crusades, which I just loved the tone of, and I encouraged him to turn it into a sort of hybrid between a history book and a game supplement for roleplayers and folks running historical simulations. This was definitely a labor of love, but it brings a real vibrancy and immediacy to a fairly horrifying period of history. And I really wanted to do all I could to help Scott's writing reach a larger audience.

Koboldly Where Gnome Has Gone Before

i admit, this one was all about the pun. After Wildside Press published my tabletop roleplaying system, they asked me to acquire and develop a few supplements that players could buy in addition to the main book (which contains the complete system). Some would be serious, in-depth guides for developing longterm campaigns like Crusade of Kings, and others should be unabashed romps designed for an afternoon of dungeon crawling. I turned to Rob Altomare, who I had gamed with for years while we still lived on the same part of the continent, and whose sense of humor, writing, and gaming skills were exactly what the project needed. I really miss gaming with Rob, because even the most serious games would be fun and funny; every once in a while when we're on the same side of the continent we get a chance.
