The latest web-based release from As If Productions, ThisIsFractopia.com is the home base of the Fractopia Podcast: forecasting the facts of tomorrow through the fiction of today. In this series, AIP founder Tod Foley examines current trends and developments in technology and science fiction, in order to create realistic visions of our potential tomorrow. Readers and writers of near-future science fiction will find much to think about in these topical episodes and exclusive interviews.
Announcing my new website! I finally broke down and purchased a vanity domain, and I'm using it to separate my writing and editorial bits from the software development and interactive studio bits. And so, without further ado: TodFoley.com is the new site, where I'm available as always for all your writing and editing needs. I handle fiction, non-fiction, game designs, journalism and technical writing. Freelance creative gun for hire.
The astute will notice that the new site uses Wordpress. No, I'm not leaving the Drupalverse. It's because I've had a lot of WP-related gigs lately, and I wanted an excuse to play with it, so... there it is. If you're looking for writing, editing or game design, that's where you want to be. Web-based interactive development? That's still right here.
The website of game designer and comic writer Ron Edwards, Adept Play presents a series of online seminars, actual play reports, videos and consulting threads for game designers, gamemasters and players of RPGs. The site features an archive detailing Edwards' history of contributions to the industry, as well as a unique threading solution for forum-like discussion of game topics. Roleplayers and designers can view all material and comment once per thread without charge, while extended interactions are available for paid members and Patreon supporters.
