Things change

After the official announcements for D&D Next (aka 5E) products this week, I have to admit, I’m just a little bit more excited. My plan remains the same, though. I’ll fork over the $20 for the Starter Set, and see where that leads. But that $150 price tag still looms like a menacing dragon. We’ll see if it needs to be slain or avoided later.

In the meantime, I am still picking away at various of my own projects. Opened up the Life of Rage - Complete Edition yesterday, and chiseled away at a few of the monster descriptions. Once I complete all of those (about a third left), I’ll just need to do a final read-thru, and add some artwork. Although I was surprised at how complete it feels with the few pieces I have done already. And a Facebook friend has volunteered to do a nice color cover for me. That’s pretty exciting!

Related to LoR, I have a question. Should I include a small adventure in the book or not? I’m going to write one for sure, but I’m not sure if I should include it in the book (which is where I am leaning) or offer it separately.

I’m also still working on my Skills and Advantages house rules for Castles & Crusades. The Skills section is done, and I have determined how I will do Advantages (basically, stripped down Feats). Now I just need to create a list of Advantages and describe how they work in the game. All of this in the hopes that I will someday get to run a game with my group.

Other than that, my gamer life has been pretty quiet. Still playing the 3E game, and making progress. But most of my time has been occupied with my research paper that is due on Sunday. I’m about half done with it right now…
