Carpe Blogiem: Author, Patreon, and Blog Highlights – January 2021


Authorial Highlights

  • GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Denizens: ??? aka Marl Ankh-3 is now in my hands with comments from Sean. I still wasn’t able to get to start on this because personal life intervened. I’m devoting all of February to getting it done no matter what.
  • GURPS Realm Management aka SNO-51 is in the hands of SJGames. It has had it’s final editorial review and is in production for layout with Nikki.
  • Nordlond Nibelung aka Nordlond Magic Items – is still being stewed upon.
  • Calypso-4 is done and should be in the hands of backers. Glad to have this one off my plate.
  • I currently have three outstanding contracts: GURPS Realm Management, GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Denizens: ???, and Nibelung (Nordland Magic Items).

Blog Highlights

  • Blog entries have been around 1-2 per week.
  • Mumble mumble designer specs for headers mumble mumble.
  • Working on doing a facelift for the blog. Gonna roll that out as soon as I’m satisfied.

Patreon Highlights

  • Patreon remained on track for January. Still releasing them to schedule.
  • I gained five new patrons. Welcome aboard everyone!
  • Still using a voting mechanic for Patreon Specials – still not getting more than 30% to 45% of patrons to vote. Still no idea how to increase that. Ideas welcome.
  • I’m going to be doing a new “monthly goals and rewards” for my blog/Patreon above and beyond the normal. Read about it here.
  • No fiction was released during January. That’s too many months without anything to show for that side of the Patreon. 🙁

Miscellaneous Related News

  • My wuxia fantasy campaign, “Ten Thousand Jade Petals” continues at a pace. The players really like it and hopefully we’ll see a finish for Season 1 sometime in Mid-April.
  • My personal life imploded at the end of November. If you want to read about it check out my Twitter. It remains an unexploded bomb we’re trying to fix. That is all.
