Bully Pulpit Games LLC is a small-press publisher of high quality role-playing games and game-related products based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and run by Steve Segedy and Jason Morningstar. We started Bully Pulpit in 2005 with our friend Patrick Murphy because we wanted to share our work with a broader audience, promote independent gaming, and fund our various projects.
Our intention is to offer materials that live up to the standards set by our guide and inspiration, the late Colonel Theodore Roosevelt. Those standards are, as the Colonel put it so succinctly, “Fair play and a square deal”.
Jason Morningstar’s first game design, Baby Wars, was a transparent rip-off of Steve Jackson’s Melee that he wrote in fourth grade (unlike Melee, it did have rules for dirty diapers as weapons). Jason lives in the Bull City, Durham, North Carolina.
Steve Segedy has been hooked on gaming since the first time he set his eyes on the Monster Manual in 1981. He still longs for the day when he can play in a successful, ongoing sci-fi game. Steve is responsible for the production and business aspects of the BPG operation.
Theodore Roosevelt was, at various points in his life, a statesman (including a stint as President of the United States from 1901-1909), prolific author and scholar, police commissioner, soldier (Colonel, First U.S. Volunteers, 1897-1898), ardent conservationist, progressive reformer, sportsman, cowboy, explorer, faithful husband and doting father.
We noted his passing in January of 1919 with particular sorrow.
This site was developed by Steve Segedy using PHP and MySQL. It integrates two instances of the WordPress blogging tool to provide the main page news and our Fair Play development blog. The theme used in the blogs, and by extension the overall design of the site, is based on Firman Pribadi’s Clean Look theme. Our thanks go out to the folks mentioned here and the open source community in general.
