Jonathan says. . . .
Here’s a list of my current projects, from a game that’s done and in the publisher’s hands to games that are just in the beginning stages of design. I always have several projects “live” at a time, although sometimes a single project takes over most of my schedule. Over the next months and years, here’s what you might see from me.
Design complete: A science-oriented kids’ game with a new publisher.
Largely complete: Sourcebook for a new publisher, offering a new take on a well-loved setting.
Design underway: A new edition of Everway, where I can apply what the free-form roleplaying game design community has learned and invented over the last 25 years. Working with the Everway Company, comprising people I’ve known since Everway’s debut.
Underway: Monthly 1,000-word essays about my history in RPG design, posted on EN World.
Underway: Sourcebook for another new publisher, also offering a new take on a well-loved setting.
Underway: In the tradition of Grandmother Fish, another lovable picture book that teaches evolution science to pre-schoolers.
Maintenance: Every year, I update the content of the game-design course I teach each fall through the University of Washington.
Beginning stages: Head-to-head card game. Latest brain storm.
Beginning stages: A story-oriented supplement for 5E with a new publisher.
Beginning stages: Possible relaunch of a quirky trading card game from the 90s.
Back-burnered: Non-fiction book, Jesus for atheists.
