Carpe Blogiem: Author, Patreon, and Blog Highlights – January 2023


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 still in playtest and there has been a LOT of emails back and forth: 1,203 emails so far. That is a LOT for a book this size. The playtesters have been very good about looking at every bit and bob and I can say with surety that it is a better book than what it started as.
  • 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. I even got some head letter time.
  • GURPS Monster Hunters Adventure: The Face of Fire” aka GURPS Visage-22 has been revised by both myself and my partner and we’re meeting on Saturday to chat about a few things and then send it off. It will arrive early on by its deadline unless something really unforeseen happens.
  • Haptic proceeds at a pace with a release every Tuesday and Friday on all topics videogame. It’s been a ton of fun. Come on over and read. .
  • I currently have four outstanding contracts: a Hexagram article, a TFT Quick Quest, GURPS Monster Hunters Adventure: The Face of Fire, and GURPS Meta-Tech.
  • Total wordcount for January was 18,972 words – I did not meet my goal. Close, but no cigar. I knew this would happen however as GURPs Meta-Tech was getting revised on the spot as we went.
  • I’m guessing about 20,000 words for February 2024.
