I always pronounce it Bree-ox, in my head. Oh, I know how it's supposed to be pronounced, but some childish part of my brain decided that "Bree-ox" sounded funnier, so now that is what I hear in my head when I read it.
I have this vague fear that I will someday meet him, and hear myself saying, "Nice to meet you, Mr. Bree-ox!"

Wow, I just found out about this today... I had no idea. Keither was one of my favorite artists, not only for his AMAZING Atlantis Cover, but for his incredble work on the Guardians card game.

I've seen the original of the Atlantis cover (and for that matter, the original for the RMB cover)...both are more beautiful as originals that can ever be stated as for the copies.

Why did Coffin get canned? That's so general. Did he deserve it or was it a personality conflict?

I know for a while he was working for another game company that he was a partner in that is now out of business. Other than that I'm not sure where he ended up, last time I saw him was about four years ago at GenCon.

Comment: My comments do not necessarily represent the views of Palladium Books.
CJ worked for (was?) Eden Studios. They put out a game called "Witchcraft", using a system called the Unisystem. They also did the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel" games, using a slightly modified version of the same system.

I think that Myrmidon was the company that CJ set up, but I could be wrong. Eden got the rights to reprint a couple of books that had been released previously as Myrmidon editions (WitchCraft and Armageddon: the End Times as the ones immediately jumping to mind), and they also have the exclusive license to use the system that CJ came up with (Unisystem) in their own products.

CJ wrote Buffy and Angel (at least the cores, anyway) and from what I've heard from George (the guy in charge of Eden) has finally submitted a manuscript for Beyond Human, which is purportedly to be a more genericized version of the "Cinematic Unisystem" from Buffy and Angel.

:lol: Wonder what he thought of doing buffy and angel...
I was hoping to learn what happened since he stopped turning out Witchcraft stuff, which is too bad. Witchcraft is the only game I know where I can play my archetypical Svartalf straight out of the rules without having to do major work or adaptation... I like it.

I believe that Mark is making reference to this page, which does seem to be supplemental info for the game vs. any original publications.

Nearest I have been able to figure out about Manhunter was that it was originally put out in 1987 and then re-released by Myrmidon in '93.

Can't find anything particular with regard to the specifics of who did what with Myrmidon, but the timeline does seem to indicate that CJ probably wasn't a founder. He may have joined as a "partner" after his work with Palladium, but that's just a guess.

[edit] In an interview with one of the guys from Eden, he mentions that: "We all liked CJ Carella's Rifts and GURPS work, and followed his efforts when he tried to start his own company and publish WitchCraft and Armageddon." Doesn't mention what said company was, and Jurkat may have been confusing things, but that sounds like it could have been Myrmidon.

I could go looking for it, but it's really just rpg.net's database. And by compliatory (which should be compilatory; misspelled, there), I mean he's credited on books where everything was reprinted, as in a compilation.

A project called "The Nursery"? Never heard of it before I read the (out of date)Company Profile. It';s mentionned near the bottom in the shape of things to come section.

Also.. therifter.com?

Don't know about rifter.com, but the Nursery was an idea that Kevin Long had a long time ago. I know Kev has talked off and on about resurrecting it, its basically "growing" super heroes.

to give you a couple examples of a nursery type programs in entertainment, the government program Manticore in the series "Dark Angel", the Rainmaker program in "PS238".

While Manticore is a Genetics program, the rainmaker is more of a what the nursery idea is.

From the man hisself:
Quote:
It's funny, taking a look back at my RPG career. I've done freelance writing (SJGames), staff writing (Palladium) and had the privilege of designing my own game system from scratch (first at Myrmidon and then with Eden Studios).

For most of a decade, I supported myself just by making stuff up and writing it down. It was a dream come true for me, and I don't regret devoting myself to RPG writing (not that I didn't make a bunch of mistakes along the way). My first book, GURPS Martial Arts, came out about 20 years ago (and yeah, I remember the flame wars on the SJG playtest bbs back in the Internet Paleolitic - no apologies necessary, that was great training for life on the electronic superhighway). My last bit of writing was for Beyond Human. It was a tremendously enjoyable and gratifying journey.

But things changed. Money's never been very important to me, but things got to a point where writing no longer felt worth my while. It became work I wasn't enjoying and which was no longer paying even some of the bills. I went back to writing part time, but I guess I couldn't do it as a hobby, not when I'd done it as a career, so I drifted off and stopped completely. I'm still writing (fiction, nothing worth publishing so far), but I now mostly work doing writing, photography and videography for assorted websites - it's not going to make me rich, but it pays the bills. I've contemplated doing some work for the MMORPG industry, and got a few nibbles, but nothing as of yet.

Will I come back to writing RPGs? Nothing's impossible, but at this point I don't feel the market can afford to pay me what I think I'm worth. I haven't been paying too much attention to the pen-and-paper RPG industry, but before I stopped paying attention it seemd like the whole system was on a steep dive. I do miss it, and sometimes I find myself designing things in my head.

Cool, thanks Maryann.

Funnily enough, I've been reading Century Station (got in a grab bag and I love it) and there's a reference to The Nursery in there, away from books though for page no.

Wonder if it will be resurrected?

Man that dude's a powerhouse illustrator. I think he only did a few books for Palladium, but he's a giant in the industry. I recently received a Larry MacDougall artbook, that was printed by Steve Jackson games, with a few pieces he did from a few years ago. He's got a deviantArt page as well (I just googled and found it when I read this post) http://bridge-troll.deviantart.com/ (his water colors are awesome).

What ever happened to Wayne Breaux?????


Very good question! :D

I am still here, physically, though spiritually I am not the author/artist you once knew. I wish it was due to an elevation in awareness accompanied by a lightsaber or the right to wield Ashbringer, but alas this isn't so. I'm a working stiff now (and not even a cool zombie stiff), who tries to do some art in between working up a paycheck to take care of the bills. I am currently working as a quality assurance supervisor monitoring inspections and preparation of equipment prior to shipment to the deepwater drilling platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. Good pay and white collar work, but the hours can be murder (24 hour call).

But enough of the boring, technical details. I wish I was back full time, but that isn't likely to happen without a lottery intervention. I do, however, have some small bit of good news, which is why I made a point of dropping in here to post. I have been slowly working on some artwork in my free time and trying to post it where people can take a look at it. A lot of it is Warcraft inspired (my latest time killer), and some is not RPG oriented, but it's all Wayne Breaux goodness; although, you will note a definite style change. My limited free time doesn't allow for the tight, technical and detailed work I used to put out for illustration, but the introduction of color is a new bonus. So take a peek at the link to follow and post feedback (either there or here, though a new thread might be best to avoid cluttering this one). I totally miss you all and Palladium and really hope to see the Atorian book out one year.

Anyways, here's the link... :arrow: http://wbreaux.deviantart.com/gallery/

Enjoy and good gaming!

You have improved, alot. I like this art much better than your Palladium work, and for the most part I was a fan of your Palladium work.

We miss you too Wayne. I still have my copy of the Atorian manuscript (would love to see more examples of their weapons of war!) and occassionally I run my HU group through a space opera type of campaign.

I'm glad you found something that pays the bills but from a strictly selfish standpoint I miss your art! You're one of my favorite artists. Seems like this new art, you didn't put as much time on, is better than ever! Wish you could find a niche in the Comic industry or something where you could pay bills and still put out such great art. Go submit some art onStan Lee's myspace page and see if you get hired! ;)

Damn Wayne, that new art is awesome!
Your old stuff was pretty good but you seemed to have some weaknesses with the human face. Having checked out your new stuff, it's clear that those weaknesses have been completely obliterated. Keep up the good work!
