Welcome to Radio Free Covenant, a podcast about the science-fiction roleplaying game Covenant and the urban fantasy novel Crossing the Line, soon to be published by Black Opal Books.
We’ve had a rough week here at Radio Free Covenant, but the podcast is (hopefully) back on schedule! We’re now shooting to get Episode 6 out next Tuesday. Stay tuned.
Sean here. We can’t talk about Covenant without talking about the System Mastery podcast. Click through for more.Continue reading “Today in Podcasts – System Mastery, “Godlike””
Las Vegas is a dry place. Always has been. It just got more intense after the war.
The residents got put on short rations, and all our lavishly watered lawns, even in the Republic of Summerlin, got torn out and replaced with xeriscape – pretty if you like fifty different shades of brown, but hot as the hinges of hell in summer.
Really, the only places where you see grass and flowers – and I don’t mean hardscrabble little desert wildflowers, but big, succulent, mob funeral-grade blooms – are where the power and money concentrate in the valley. That’d be the hotels and places like French Hills.
You get there by heading east on Sunset, past McCarran International, past Sunset Park, past row after row of strip malls and garbage-choked lots, and everything’s painted variations on the same two colors – fake stucco brown and caliche grey – and you’re wondering who stole all the colors and where he put them…
And then wham. Right between your eyes.

Crossing the Line is coming to Black Opal Books!
Sean here. Remember when we used to put out a podcast? Well, we still are, and we just cleared up the Google Drive problems that were keeping us from putting out Episode 6.
We’re hoping to wrap up the valka for now and move on to something else. Expect it to drop next Tuesday!
I was supposed to post the last part of my review on Wendy’s Feast of Legends, but I’m behind on reading it and don’t have enough for a post.
Then I remembered that I have a novel getting published at Black Opal Books, and that I promised them that I’d do publicity for it…
My urban fantasy novel Crossing the Line takes place almost entirely in Las Vegas, my adopted hometown. And I have photos of Las Vegas! Click through to see more.Continue reading “Streets of Las Vegas – Part 2”
Wendy’s Feast of Legends (FoL) is a full, straight-faced roleplaying game and campaign that’s also part of a hamburger shack’s advertising campaign. I’d normally rip it a new one, but this is an odd beast, even for a game tie-in, and requires a nuanced response.
I mean, I am going to rip it a new one, but not for the reasons that you’d expect. I might need more than one post to do it, though, because this one is rough. Click through to start.Continue reading “Feast of Legends – Part 1”
