This year I chose to be a massive cheat for NaNoWriMo by both adding to an existing work and editing it. To double down on the cheating, it isn’t even a novel, but a sourcebook for one of my favourite roleplaying games, Numenera!
Over the course of NaNoWriMo, I wrote approximately 20k additional words on my project and did 30 hours of editing, resulting in a final word count for the project of 60883.
I’ve still got a lot of work to do. I need to do all the art orders, get the actual art, get the map made for it, do all the layout, get it properly edited by someone who is not me and then publish this bad boy. All these things will cost money because I suck at them and will need to pay someone else – so I guess my next task is actually finding people to do these jobs and rustling up the money to pay them.
I’m running a new game for the same group I’ve been playing Numenera with for the past year or so. When our campaign came to an end, we discussed what […]
I finally managed to complete a game of Elegy for a Dead World, a game about writing and exploration. Previously I had trouble under Linux with keyboard input not working […]
Kickstarter for many seems to be a mixed bag, but so far I’ve had fairly good luck with it. Out of all the projects I’ve backed, including ones that have not yet finished funding, a little over 50% have delivered me things.
Of the ones that haven’t delivered yet, nearly all of them haven’t yet reached their estimated delivery dates or even finished their kickstarter campaigns yet. In fact, only about 8 or so have passed their deadlines and of those, only about 2 or 3 have basically disappeared with the money and never delivered anything and cut all communications with anyone.
On the whole, I’ve had a pretty good run, I’d say. ∞
This seems like one of those things where there is an obvious answer – friends. After all, what else could you expect from a game that’s inherently rooted in social […]
I dunno. I don’t really follow celebrities, their lives or news about them so I don’t really know any except Wil Wheaton because he very actively puts himself out there, […]
It’s pretty much impossible for me not to say roll20.net. Roll20 has made gaming so much more accessible to so many people, but since we’re talking about my favourites here, […]
I think this easily has to go to Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition or WFRP2 for short. One of the things I really enjoyed about WFRP2 is how brutal and […]
This one is an easy one because I’ve already done it, though in this case I did it with 3 games, rather than 2. I ran a game that combined […]
This is another one it’s hard to pin down. I don’t typically look specifically for inspiration, things just sort of emerge from my subconscious at more or less random moments. […]
