About B.J. Keeton

I'm BJ. You can call me Beej if you want to. I write all kinds of RPG content and probably spend way too much time thinking about Beholders, Mind Flayers, Goblins, and Dragons.

I live in North Alabama, and I've been playing RPGs most of my life. D&D 3e was my first TTRPG, so I've been DMing/GMing for over 20 years now. 

I began writing D&D adventures in 2020, and since then I've been hooked on game design and creating supplements for the games I play. My adventure Claus for Concern is a Mithral-bestseller on DMs Guild, meaning it's in the top 1% of titles across the entire site

I am a Content Team Lead at wpbeginner.com, writer at ScreenRant Gaming, co-host of the Dragon Quest FM podcast, co-founder of Geek to Geek Media, and author of 4 novels, the bestselling Technomage Archive series and #1 bestseller Nimbus: A Steampunk Novel.

I've also been featured in publications such as Runner's World and Like the Wind Magazine.

Upcoming Projects

Project 2023b is the working title of a cyberpunk-fantasy TTRPG from B.J. Keeton. It uses the Powered by the Apocalypse (PbtA) system with some features from Forged in the Dark and a splash of Dungeon World.

2023b is a game about building a team of characters in a dying fantasy world and telling their story. The world is being slowly eaten away by the encroachment of The Bitlands, a purely digital plane, that is breaching into and destroying the physical world.

The world of 2023b may seem similar to fantasy worlds you're familiar with from other RPGs. You will find kingdoms and monarchies, conclaves of arcane spellcasters, dragon lairs, and reanimated horrors from beyond the grave.

Where it differs is that it's set in the far-flung future of one of those worlds. Small merchant guilds, wizard schools, and temples to the gods have become megaguild conglomerates. They control the world, and everyone knows it—including the governments. 

This new world is connected by not only ley lines but also wireless signals. Artificers and Alchemists have just added silicon, lasers, and nanotech to their gunpowder and nightshade.

2023b is cyberpunk-fantasy turned on its head. If you were making a World of Warcraft and Blade Runner cocktail with a twist of Altered Carbon and The Matrix, you'd be most of the way there. If you're familiar with Shadowrun, then flip it upside down.

The fantasy world of this game has "evolved" into its corporate, dystopian, post-capitalist cyberpunk era, rather than an urban world being invaded by fantasy elements.
