Kevin was kind enough to spend a little time with us at Critical Glitch to share some amazing stories. From his earliest days as a console gamer all the way through his current Novel Crimson; as well as, some possible projects he hopes to work on in the future. Through the evening we talk about sources of inspiration, such as works by Mort Castle, and the music of Celldweller. Kevin also shares with us his connection to his character and the protagonist of this book Red aka Rick.

Pushing The Envelope 001: Strays


This episode sets the stage for a special segment where we branch out from our normal pure Shadowrun coverage and explore what other games are in the wild. It is a way to bring the spotlight to many of the people who have worked long and hard on the project we all know and love so much.

Russell Zimmerman gets to lead the way with us in the exploration of his Fate Accelerated based game system called Strays. Russell is a long time Shadowrun freelancer his works include; Neat, Eleven Blood, Way of the Adept, and a contributor to Shadowrun 5th edition and the Shadowrun Digital Tools Box to name a few.

You can find the Strays Kickstarter here as well as Wordsmith Games facebook here.
