Intermittent Activity Warning

Well, the Shadowdark Kickstarter was an amazing success, and I am eager to get my books – I went all in with the Crawling Group level, so that the players in any group I run will have everything at their fingertips. The PDFs are all amazing, but I’m still old school when it comes to having the real deal and can’t wait to get my hands on that premium basilisk-skin tome!

One thing the success of the Kickstarter has created is an amazing mass of new Shadowdark players and hopeful publishers. It seems something new is coming out every day now. Lots of new designers who are eager to show the world what they have to offer.

I think for now I’m going to sit back and enjoy reading the works of others, rather than diving right in and adding more to the corpus of Shadowdark third-party works. I want to see what others have to offer, before dive back in. Dan Proctor continues to work on Second Edition Labyrinth Lord, so it is also a wait and see on that still, as well.

A few stupid hiccups aside, Hasbro remains quiescent on the OGL front. So, I’m leaving the existing OGL products up for now. Hasbro can change its mind on that as quickly as a Pinkerton can kick in a door, so make sure you’ve downloaded all my products you have purchased and saved them on backups.

It is back onto hiatus I go. I’ve been reading some books and comic books and watching a bunch of movies. Just enjoying leisure again, rather than pounding madly at a keyboard like a man possessed. I suppose it is because right now gaming sessions have been few and far between. Maybe once I get back to gaming more regularly, I will again feel the need to pour words into a computer and share them.

We shall see. Until then good gaming!
