View from the Pelgrane’s Nest – January 2019

It’s a new year and a new Pelgrane, with a lot of changes around our virtual office. Simon has now started his one-year sabbatical, and to cover the skills gap left by his absence, we’re welcoming Sadhbh Warren to the team. She’s joining us on a temporary contract as a Project Manager, and will be continuing Simon’s […]

View From the Pelgrane’s Nest – December 2018

This months’ View is more remote than usual, coming to you from the heady heights of New York City, where I’m waiting for my flight back to Europe after PAX Unplugged. This was our second time at this Philadelphia-based show, and it went very well for us this year. I’m very excited by how our […]

View from the Pelgrane’s Nest – November 2018

Hallowe’en is sadly over, but this month, it’s our printers who’ve been largely horrifying me, with tales of a 10% increase in paper prices. This has generated some hair-raising quotes for our upcoming books, specifically impacting the printing of The Yellow King RPG. Kickstarter backers will be unaffected, but it may make the final book collection […]

View from the Pelgrane’s Nest – October 2018

It’s October, and my social media feeds have turned into an endless display of pumpkins, interspersed with occasional #Inktober images from some of Pelgrane’s talented artists. There’s little sign of Hallowe’en-related activity on there yet, which is disappointing. Hallowe’en is my second-favourite holiday (after St. Patrick’s Day, of course), and I’m looking forward to the all […]

View from the Pelgrane’s Nest – September 2018

This is my last View article for a while. Pelgrane Press’s managing director Cat Tobin will be taking over this column, and I’ll be stepping back into an advisory role as I take a year-long sabbatical. Cat asked me recently – what exactly is a pelgrane anyway? And I thought back to my own introduction […]

View from the Pelgrane’s Nest July 2018

We are in the all-too-narrow gap between Origins and Gen Con, and the Nest is a hive of frenzied activity (if you’d forgive the mixed metaphor). Some new releases will make Gen Con, others won’t.  Origins is a little like a relaxed dress rehearsal for Gen Con. It has shorter exhibition hours, and while it’s […]

View from the Pelgrane’s Nest: June 2018

This month for me featured online games – a playtest of a Yellow King RPG adventure, new releases from virtual tabletop providers, and Steve Dempsey ran his 60th Fearful Symmetries session. It’s not quite the same as playing in person, but I find that aside from the convenience of online play, players spend more time […]

View from the Pelgrane’s Nest – May 2018

Here in London, it appears that an enthusiastic eight-year-old has taken over the weather control panel and is twiddling all the dials. I often forget the weather when running games. When I do remember to highlight it, it really draws the players in, even if there is no mechanical effect. Picture a meeting between spy […]

March 2018: View from the Pelgrane’s Nest

Both Senior Pelgranes are freezing our pinions off here in these Pretanic Isles, as inclement weather descends on us. I can hear the mocking laughter of Toronto-based Robin and Chicago-based Ken as we complain that -4C is cold. At least we can all agree that Farenheit is a nonsense, eh? From London, it feels like […]

View from the Pelgrane’s Nest: December 2017/January 2018

This will be a short and snappy View. The Dragonmeet convention was a great success – we sold more books than ever before, and hosted a jam-packed investigative masterclass seminar. Gareth ran Fall of Delta Green for the entire Pelgrane crew. PAX Unplugged has the potential to grow to be a top-tier RPG convention, matching […]
