My name is Ken Wickham, and I create game and writing material. I specialized in writing tabletop roleplaying game material, especially solo RPG game tools including solo engines, minimalist descriptive tools, generator tools, all-in-one volumes called mechanisms.

I have been writing stuff in some form since 2006 or 2007. For writing, my first stuff was more forum and group non-fiction related; however, writing eventually brought me to writing fiction and NaNoWriMo, winning in the three years that I participated: 2014, 2015, and 2018.

After writing for the my first NaNoWriMo, a deep desire to return to tabletop RPGs hit me deeply and passionately. So, creating a blog about my journey seemed inspiring—which was a common thing to do back in 2015. World of the Fifth Sun blog was created to share this experience with everyone else.

And that blog led to publishing my first RPG products and has help inspired several product lines.

Titles created as of the 4rth of September 2019 include the following:

The Quick free world maps using GIMP filters and Donjon fractal maps,

  • Forty-one character, story, and setting solo RPG and fiction writing tools. These spawned four mechanisms volume books,
  • Three solo RPG tools 2nd edition,
  • Three Aioskoru World books including maps,
  • Two fantasy languages (several more being written or adapted,
  • Three parallel open gaming books,
  • Sixteen, 5e x 5 books related to converting 5e SRD, and combining other d20 SRD sources into a d100 system books,
  • A Fudge system solo game book created for SGAM '18.
