Arkham Files Script – Episode 001: Martin “Mad Dog” Hawkins

Personae Dramatis “Providence” aka Dennis Howard Irving: A twenty-something hacker who has come into possession of various Arkham Asylum case files and is working to undermine the institution by exposing its barbaric practices, grim history, and infamous residents.

Knightfall: First Nights

Gotham Nights was a Smallville campaign I ran from February 18th, 2011 until January 13th, 2011 spanning four seasons and a Christmas special.

Now, for the first time ever, I’ll be sharing all of the notes I’ve collected from Gotham Nights.

Smallville: Party Conflict

I got a message on Obsidian Portal today from a user called DissenterKnight. He found my Gotham Nights page and wrote to me. I’ve included his message so you can see what he said. I wrote a pretty lengthy response and I wanted to share it with all of you too. I talk a bit about getting into Smallville (a story I’m sure you’re all very familiar with), a bit about party-conflict in gaming, and the strengths of Smallville. I also do some shameless promotions for good measure. Check it out and let me know what you think in the comments.
