Today we’re going to dabble in a dark art that always makes me cringe with existential terror. That’s right, it’s SELF-PROMOTION TIME. The crowdfunding campaign for Advanced Death Saves has gone live! Like its predecessor, the anthology features tales of tragedy lifted straight from the gaming table, written and illustrated by an amazing roster of […]

Cooking with gas

May 19th, 2017

Peter was the morning shift cook at the hospital kitchen where I worked in high school. He had about ten years on me, though you wouldn’t have know from his looks and antics. He lived for stupid pranks and tasteless jokes of a type that made our supervisor wince before delivering a stern lecture. In […]

Half post eleven

May 3rd, 2017

You know the drill. You start something on a whim. It gets some positive feedback. It becomes an obsession. For a brief moment, you feel like you’re on the verge of bigger things. You suffer a crisis of confidence and a cluster of setbacks. You try to re-tool things, but can never quite re-capture the […]

Though my attempt to run Tomb of Horrors turned out to be a glacially paced fiasco, it did result in a new friendship with yet another kid named Scott. Scott lived two streets over from me and that geographical proximity led to Scott spending a good deal of time at my place during the summer […]

That Mysterious Bloom: Day 25

February 25th, 2017

(from “Y2K Bug” by Tom Peyer, Duncan Fregredo. Richard Case, and Dean Ormston in Totems #1, February 2000) “By God,” I said when I could speak, “he brought you an orchid.” “Brassocattleya Thorntoni,” Wolfe purred. “Handsome.” — Rex Stout, The Silent Speaker (This one is the handiwork of good pal Bully, who saved me the […]

From the flames of this fallen world, the Ultimate Powers Jam has risen anew. It probably won’t help things, but it certainly can’t make them any worse. So, with that in mind….are you ready to rock and roll all right, my faithful gods of thunder? Because it’s time to strut out new installment of… …in […]

Year (Less Than) Zero

January 24th, 2017

The old cliche is true. Waiting is the hardest part. No matter how bad we told ourselves it was going to be, watching it unfold makes it feel even worse — that feeling of powerlessness, flinching as each fresh blow lands even as you realize the brunt of it is landing more ferociously on someone […]

After the initial horror over the election results subsided a little, I could feel the spark of indignant rage — the one that sustained Armagideon Time through its golden years — returning. I vowed to step up my game, get my shit in order, and get back to updating on a regular basis. As it […]

New jam from old jars

January 9th, 2017

One of my reasonably ambitious plans for Armagideon Time in this grim new year is to revive a few of the features that have fallen by the wayside for various reasons. While Nobody’s Favorites is at the top of that list, I’ve also decided to bring back…. For those of you who’ve arrived here after […]

30th Century deja vu

May 23rd, 2016

The Mighty Mike Sterling recently fielded a reader question about the Legion of Super-Heroes’ decline from a fan favorite franchise to its current state of sad irrelevance. Mike did a great job breaking down the Legion’s tragic cycle of reboots and diminishing returns, and which has been on my mind since I revisited those funnybooks […]
