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


Authorial Highlights

  • GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Denizens: ??? aka Marl Ankh-3 is fully in the hands of SJGames and is now on the current playtest queue.
  • GURPS Realm Management aka SNO-51 has been published! GO BUY COPIES. Make me all the fat stacks! Well, some fat stacks. Ok. Maybe just one stack. If you have it remember to go to Warehouse23 and rate it (it’s right under the title of the book and is a series of empty stars). Talk about it on the forums. Tweet about it. Share it on Facebook. Get it out there. Please. I’d love to see this go further than just the GURPS fandom.
  • Nordlond Nibelung aka Nordlond Magic Items – is still being stewed upon. I honestly haven’t had the brainspace to dig into it too much. I talked to Doug about it and we both agreed, it’s got potential, but I’m going to have to kill my darlings on this one and that’s always a slog.
  • I pitched a new book for GURPS but not for GURPS. I await for the contract. I’m pretty sure about this one so I’m going to go ahead and give it a code name. Let’s call it Invincible-13. Yeah. I like that.
  • I currently have two outstanding contracts: 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. This is being worked on behind the scenes, it’s just taking some time.
  • 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 March. Still releasing them to schedule.
  • I gained eight new patrons and lots of upped pledges. 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 still welcome.
  • My “monthly goals and rewards” for my blog/Patreon REALLY worked. Both goals were met and I’m slowly spreading beyond my normal circle of influence. This months rearwards and goals also really worked. I’m super excited that folks are responding so well to it. I’ve got lots more ideas and many many things I want to blog and write about. So join my Patreon today.
  • No fiction was released during March either, the trend did not end. I am disappoint.

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’s starting to clear up, but good Gawd what a terrible time we’ve had. Sigh.
