You may have seen my post on social media that my computer died Monday. What exactly happened and what does it mean for JBE. First, what happened: the hard drive went. The boot sector is dead and nothing I do is bringing it back. “Have I tried …” My wife is a computer adept. She tried it. She was able to bring it back enough to copy any files that weren’t backed… Read More

Incase you had not heard, there has been considerable discussion online about the new licenses that DriveThruRPG put up last week Friday. At first glance these licenses are pretty good: you get to publish whatever you want for the system with an easy path to becoming a publisher. However, for reasons I will not go into here, the license has some down sides. All of them are in the “iTunes User Agreement”-size… Read More

Its official, we signed the 13th Age Compatibility License yesterday. We will be redoing the covers of our two current 13th Age Role Playing Game releases in the next week or two. Also keep an eye out for our next 13th Age release: Age of Icons: 100 Lich Queen Agents. Like Age of Ideas: Character Backgrounds, this will include 100 names of agents of the Lich Queen you can use in your… Read More

Jon Brazer Enterprises would like to welcome our new line developer. From the Mile High State of Colorado, we are pleased to have Marie Small join us.

Marie describes herself as an evil overlady with her own small army of minions consisting of a husband,… Read More

As a publisher that tries to make my books as attractive to game stores as possible I do quite a few things to help them out. Most notably, I have a PDF guarantee where a customer can get the PDF for free no matter where they pick up a print book. And game stores can give out the PDF via Bits and Mortar. However, I only know of a few game stores… Read More

Yesterday, JBE hit an important milestone. We received 2 checks in the mail for PDF and print book sales. The total of those two checks is more than I receive in take-home pay per paycheck from my day job. That is highly significant since my job is in the category that Matt Sprange (of Mongoose Publishing) describes in “I am Mongoose and So Can You” as “will likely require to take a… Read More

I applied to have my the Brazer Blog over at ENWorld added to the RPG Bloggers Network and they accepted it today. If you are not familiar with the Brazer Blog, it focuses mostly on the Pathfinder RPG material, but there is the occasional Traveller post there as well. Mostly I blog about actual play experiences with my Pathfinder character currently in a Curse of the Crimson Throne campaign (and give tips… Read More

This morning on my way to work, I stopped at my local Wawa for breakfast (bad for the waist line, but still good) and there was a guy from the local newspaper there handing out free copies of their paper. I didn’t take one and as far as I could tell no one else did either. It amazed me that they were still trying to keep that end of the market alive…. Read More

Normally, I do not comment on adding or deleting a widget, but this time I am because it is a relative big deal. Its a writer’s word count meter underneath the Tweets from the Future widget. It displays the current word count of a major project I’m working on. I don’t know how many words the final is going to be but 50,000 is a good estimate for the moment. That is… Read More
