The last push for Bumps, and a new project

Friday, September 24th, 2010

I’ve gotten the last list of corrections that i need for Bumps in the Night, and am actively plugging them in. Fortunately it’s less than 3 pages worth, so not much of a big deal. I also got a font i needed. The sticky wicket right now are a couple of handouts i need to make, which i’m not terribly experienced at. I’ve somehow managed to rope in someone else who might be helping me out with this…if that happens, i’ll expand on this later. But even the advice is appreciated- i sure as hell am not at the level of the HPLHS guys.

And since the project’s getting announced, i feel safe in talking about it here: i’ll be designing The Legacy of Arrius Lurco, a new Cthulhu Invictus campaign written by Oscar Rios. Should be fun! More information about that book can be had here.

I haven’t had much time lately to work on Project: Pineal Gland, which sucks, because i’ve had it on my brain a lot recently. There’s a convention coming up next February that i’d love to playtest it at, so i’m hoping i can get it done before then.

Update on various projects

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

Suddenly, the stars are becoming right, and i’ve got movement on a few things i’ve been working on:

Bumps in the Night: i’m working through the last bits of corrections with Scott Glancy on this one, mostly having to do with map scales, bibliography, and, most importantly, those goddamn, accursed “pg. xx”‘s. None of them shall escape my layout wrath.

BRP Magic Book: finally got the feedback and stamps of approval i needed, so now it’s time to get through the first draft of layout. Should be pretty smooth sailing from here on out. Except for the tables. There’s lots of tables. Which involve tabs. I hate tabs.

Project: Pineal Gland: Still chugging away at this. Getting to the point where i’m going to have to figure out the ending. Heh.

Project: Bad Roommate: This was an old adventure idea for Call of Cthulhu in the Classic era, but got rejected at the time, as it wasn’t fleshed out enough. I’ve dragged it out, and am going to see if i can do something with it. No one’s done much with the tcho-tcho (outside of Pagan’s piece on Tiger Transit, i can think of little else), so that and a certain love interest twist makes me think it might be decent.

Project: Pineal Gland

I reckon i can bring this up now, since i’ve been working on it for a bit- i’ve been writing a new one-shot Call of Cthulhu scenario that i may actually see if i can get published proper. I’ve got about 3500 words down right now, but there’s a lot to get to yet, and i’ve a pile of research i’ve yet to sit down and do. I’ve never even thought about writing a scenario set in World War II, and now i’m hip deep in it. Oye, and i just had another thing that i realized i’m going to have to write up for the adventure.

See, this is what happens when you try to write something for anyone other than yourself and your gaming group. All these unforseen bases you have to suddenly cover.

Anyway. I’ll track the progress of it here, and give updates as they happen.
