You can call me Makapatag or Waks, good with He/They pronouns. I'm a Filipino living in the Philippines writing games about the under-appreciated folklore, myth, and precolonial cultures of the Philippines, as well as violent colonial angst. I also like big robots, tactical RPGs, and non-western fantasy settings.
I write speculative fiction novels and tabletop games both Filipino and English, drawing upon Filipino Folklore, Legends, Culture, History, and Myth. My favorite Fantasy authors are Guy Gavriel Kay, Nahoko Uehashi, and Ramon Muzones.
My writing tends to deal with violence in all forms: from martial to generational to political. how it affects self, and how we inflict violence upon others. after all, what is violence but love in its fulmination?
I make all my money from my games. If you want to support me, you can pledge on my Patreon to get early draft access for everything I write, alongside some other special perks. Find me on twitter and tumblr.
