This week I will highlight another friend of mine who is a writer, Brandes Stoddard. I am pretty sure I have highlighted his blog on game design before (here is the link if you missed it: http://harbinger-of-doom.blogspot.hk/) but this week I want to show off his book. Brandes is an exceptional storyteller, designer and game master. He has had the misfortune to have had me as a player on more than one occasion because I am that much of a fan of his work and he is a masochist to keep letting me in. Anyway, yesterday was his birthday so check out his book and blog.
