Ālea Iacta Est!
That's Classical Latin for "The YouTube Channel is Launched!"
Well, I finally did it. I cast the die. I crossed the Rubicon. I uploaded my first Arbiter of Worlds instructional video to YouTube. And it’s amaz… well, incredi… remarka… uh, excel… good, I think.1 You can find it here:
Tragically, despite the thumbnail, I was not accompanied by a voluptuous sword-wielding brunette in black leather during the filming of this video. (She does exist but she was taking a nap.) Now, if you’ve read my book, Arbiter of Worlds, you won’t be surprised by too much I have to say in this video, but even then I hope you’ll subscribe to the channel, share it with your less-enlightened friends, and generally help me promote sandbox gamemastering and simulationism to the needy gaming masses.
If you haven’t done so already, I also hope you will take a look at my current crowdfunding campaign, Ascendant: Platinum Edition. Ascendant was designed to be a physics-based simulation of a superhero universe with 1990s Image Comics aesthetics. There’s a trailer about the product over at the Arbiter of Worlds YouTube channel, too:
If that sounds like the game for you, please check it out. And if superheroes just aren’t your genre of choice, don’t worry — I’ve got a fantasy game in the works, Adventurer Conqueror King System II, that will be the finest example of simulationist fantasy game design I can create.

Once you’ve finished subscribing to the channel and backing the new campaign, head over to the links below for ways to get involved in my recently-declared Simulationist culture movement. If you’re a fan, be kind and spread the word!
