This week I introduce the main antagonist to the story.

Those of you who played Gamma World are pretty familiar with Cryptic Alliances. Well, the Purists are Knights of Genetic Purity.

They even have blasters and powered armor! =)

As always, I hope you enjoy this rapidly growing and expanding tale.

I can't promise that I will manage to get a chapter up every week, but I certainly will try for the foreseeable future. Also, I will be attempting to post it on Friday nights, time permitting.

The story switches gears pretty quickly here. New characters as well as a whole new environment are introduced.

I hope you enjoy!

As publisher Michael O. Varhola and those who follow me on Facebook know, I am a prolific writer. I get an idea and I run with it until I either get bored, another project hits me, or I set it aside for various reasons.

Last week I got hit with the urge to finally write some Science Fiction. In fact, this little story (I have no idea how long it's going to get in the end) combines SF and one of my favorite sub-genres.

I won't say which, you'll just have to read the story to find out.

Now this has gone through two quick edits, and the way I write I will more than likely go back and make some changes. I'll be sure to post in the opening when I have done so.

So, without further adieu, here is Chapter 1 of 'Buck Who?"

Following is an excerpt from Part 1, Chapter 2, of H.G. Wells' novel The New Machiavelli, in which he expresses the affinity for gaming that was revealed in his Floor Games (1911) and Little Wars (1913).

The following short story, "The Man Who Sold Rope to the Gnoles," was originally published in 1950 by author Margaret St. Clair (aka, Idris Seabright). It appears in an expanded edition of Skirmisher Publishing LLC's A Brief History of Gnolls: Anthropophagy and Emeralds from Wales to Wisconsin and Beyond, a book by author Paul Haynie that traces the history of the title fantasy creature in literature and gaming, from when it was introduced nearly a century ago up through the present. 

Following is "The Dinner Party," a fun piece of short fiction I wrote about a party of adventurers going out to eat one evening! It is set in the heart of the world described in Skirmisher Publishing's Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting, at a Dwarven restaurant called Moira's located on the outskirts of Kos City. This short story originally appeared in d-Infinity Volume #5: Full Circle and I am having it republished here as bonus content for my just-released "Into the Mines of Moira" adventure for 5th Edition D&D.
