I just realized that I made my first post on this blog two years and two days ago.
I definitely have not been a prolific poster of late, having only averaged six posts a month this year, but I feel like I'm getting back in stride after a rough beginning of the year. I've collected a good amount of art for From the Ashes, and although I'm struggling to fit the last few pieces of the puzzle into place, it should be coming soonish.
Yeah, I know, heard that before, so in the time-honored tradition of deadline-challenged creative types, I'll just say that it'll be done when it's done.
In the meantime, when I get stuck, I've been having a blast working up stuff for Tayxis, and my brain seems to be responding. Instead of detracting from my work on FtA, it seems to be supplementing, even augmenting it. I may end up going back and redoing all the stat work and setting it in another system, but in the meantime, 2e is comfortable to me, and I don't want to break my flow to go and see what I should be doing according to a ruleset. Time for that later.
In case any of you aren't aware, Pulp Mill Press will be releasing an anthology of short stories entitled Libram Mysterium with a, you guessed it, pulp fantasy theme. I submitted a story I'd been kicking around for awhile, and was lucky enough to make the cut. Based on what I've seen of other submissions, I'll be in good company. So keep an eye out, they're shooting for a winter-ish release date. You should get a copy, because if there's enough interest, they intend to do more.
Anyhow, here's to another, hopefully more productive, year!
Thanks for reading!
