Captain Swanhands

Fighting crime would be easy if you didn’t have swans for hands. Well – it’d be easier.


Suggested Price: $3.80


Written in collaboration with Jeeyon Shim.

Captain Swanhands is a surprisingly nuanced take on the superhero genre considering that your superpower is “your arms are replaced with the heads and necks of swans” or some other similarly difficult-to-wrangle animal.

If you’re interested in overcoming personal dramas, making ends meet despite being a hero, and trying to fill out a form at the Post Office when both of your hands is a full cat, then you’ll love Captain Swanhands. And even if you’re not Jeeyon wrote a bunch of cool animal facts in there, too, so there’s something for everyone.


One page games?

HERE’S THE DEAL: I write one tabletop or live roleplaying game a month. It will be no bigger than one side of A4 paper (that’s one side of letter paper, for you American types) and I will do all the art, layout and design myself in pen.

My games are, in general: short, punchy, well-written and exciting. Over the last six years of writing I’ve become more serious and less silly, so expect to see a mix of tones ranging from introspective and heart-breaking to daft and explosive. I’ll always strive to innovate and offer something original or surprising in each game.
