A week ago, I was laid off by CCP, along with about 120 other employees. I’m very sorry to leave — the White Wolf crew have been my friends and family for four years now. But it seems it’s finally time for us to go our separate ways.
As far as White Wolf itself is concerned, Rich Thomas and Eddy Webb remain with the company. I’m expecting to continue developing Vampire: The Requiem as a freelancer. The World of Darkness will go on.
As for my own future, I’m not sure what comes next. I’m already interviewing with other video game companies. I’m also lining up some freelance RPG work outside of White Wolf. And I’m working on a deal to publish some of my short fiction.
However, if any of you have any leads, whether for salaried or freelance game design work, I’d be interested in hearing about them.
“The Apprentice’s Tale” from Cavaliers of Mars resumes next week, with a piece on Martian warfare. And a little bit after that, I’ll be showing the next piece of art from the book with an article on the Lost Places.
