Welcome to Hard Luck Ink
My name is Christopher Cortright and I am happy to introduce myself. I am a writer and artist who has been working on one RPG based project of another since the late 80's.
I was first introduced to the hobby by my friend Jeff with the grand old Marvel Super Heroes before delving into a nearly endless stream of new games since that time. I fondly recall my first foray into writing a RPG of my own.
I attempted to take TSR's spy game, Top Secret/SI and turn it into a fantasy game. After many different incarnations of it I moved on to some other project although those are lost to memory now. Over the decades I have had the pleasure of playing in a multitude of different games and reading many many more.
It's safe to say that gaming is my primary hobby. I like to consider myself a free-form type of GM. I like to make things up as I go along rather than stick to any sort of pre-set plan.
I know this isn't for everyone but it has worked for me for many years. I have spent the majority of my gaming career as a GM for different Fantasy games but I have run just about every type of game I can think of. It has been a lot of fun.
I have dabbled in writing home-brew games for just about every genre type and while some have come out well others have gone down in a ball of flame. I think that is the plight of every creative type though. I am proud to say that I am now the primary writer for the Crazy8's Second Edition game system coming soon from Composite Games.
It is rules lite and supremely flexible. I look forward to being able to flex my writing skills with this game and with a number of upcoming releases for it. My main hope is that some of you are able to enjoy my work and that you spread the word.
I understand that not every game is for everyone, but I think that there are games out there for everyone, regardless of their personal style.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, I appreciate it!
