Carpe Blogiem: Author, Patreon, and Blog Highlights – February 2024


Authorial Highlights

  • I have settled on what form of fiction I want to write, but I need to consider it some and do some preliminary outlining.
  • GURPS Meta-Tech” aka GURPS Whatchamacallit  is out of playtest and now in revision. There were about 1300 emails total for the book which is looking to be about 30,000 words (or 38 pages). That’s about 35 emails per page. That is a HUGE number. Also, the emails were not just a sentence or a paragraph. I had some excellent breakdowns and suggestions on things. We wibbled and wobbled a bit on some stuff, but the book is so much better for the playtest. It was the best playtest I’ve had as an author and maybe any I’ve ever participated in.
  • The Fantasy Trip Quick Quest “The Gallery of Hands” remains in the hands of Steve Jackson.
  • My article for Hexagram for The Fantasy Trip is going to be in issue #12. The kickstarter is over, but they are open to late pledges still. Go grab a copy!
  • GURPS Monster Hunters Adventure: The Face of Fire” aka GURPS Visage-22 is in the hands of Steve Jackson Games.
  • Haptic releases are now on Fridays and we’re working to restructure the social media release aspect. We’re also getting ready for Palworld!
  • I currently have three outstanding contracts: a TFT Quick Quest, GURPS Monster Hunters Adventure: The Face of Fire, and GURPS Meta-Tech.
  • Total wordcount for February was 26,740 words – I met my goal (somehow) given that I was also “real-time” revising GURPS Meta-Tech
  • I’m guessing about 20,000 words for March 2024.
