This blog exists primarily to demonstrate to my instructors in the Social Media Marketing  program (through University of Nevada, Reno) that I’ve been paying attention in class and know how to do this stuff.

I’m a graduate of the University of Southern California (’93, BA History) and of California State University, Long Beach (’98, MBA). I’ve recently moved to Reno to be closer to family and for a change of pace.  Previously I lived in Los Angeles, working for Wilson Marketing Group (a database management and marketing research firm specializing in early childhood markets) as their Customer Service Manager. 

Presently I’m job hunting in the Reno/Sparks area, which is one reason I’m obtaining the Social Media Marketing certificate (need to keep those skills up-to-date).

    Hey Ed!

    I came across your blog by chance when I tried to search for the title of my new game: “Economies of Scale” to see how it’s ranked in the search engines, but instead I found your line: “There is no Economies of Scale in a MMORPG”.

    I read the article and liked it, and I especially agree with “time is money” now that I’m a developer and seeing how players progressed – although my goal is to reduce the time is money factor as much as I can.

    You might be interested to take a look:

    Hi Ed,

    I’ve been working on a new 3D browser based space game called Cimmerian Space, it’s really looking great and nearly ready to launch on Facebook, I thought that this is something which you might be interested in covering on your site. I’ve put together a press release which you can download as a PDF from this link:


    I’d really appreciate any coverage and am also available for further comment, info etc. Thanks for taking a look, please let me know if you are decide to run a press release.

    Love the blog! Found it while looking at salvage/crafting systems. My daughter (6 years old) and I have been grinding away at a postapoc fantasy rpg aimed at kids. Hoping to get it finished this year. Anyway, I absolutely _love_ your ABCs of scavenging. If you don’t mind I’m going to incorporate it (with some modifications). It’s that good. 🙂

    Ed, love your PFBB conversions! Any plans to do Occult Adventures or Ultimate Intrigue? And I’m trying to do the Ultimate Psionics classes, would you have any interest in having access to those after they’re done?

    • EdOWar Says:

      Thank you. At this point, I’m probably not going to do conversions for the OA or UI classes.

      When you’re done with Psionics classes, if you post a link to them I’d love to see how they turned out.

    Hey there Ed’O’War,

    Great blog! I want to thank you for all the amazing PFBB material that you’ve made over the years.

    While I am currently running 5e, I want to convince my players to switch to PFBB. Fingers crossed.

    Have you thought about converting the only class in 5e worth its salt, the Warlock to PFBB?

    Also I would like to speak with you privately about something, but there is no PM feature on WordPress.

    How can I contact you?

    Hello Ed,
    I would really love to see your work on the Pathfinder Beginner box conversions, unfortunately some of the links are dead now and I cannot find them anywhere else. Please, if you get a chance, it would be amazing to have access to everything. I have greatly enjoyed what I am able to see.
    Warmest Regards,
