07/08/2020 Report, FERMI RESOLUTION RPG: 30,158/37,800.

Got the original Geography part finished and added some more locations. The next two are the big ones, though: Magic and Religion. I wrote them originally before I had an actual magical system to link them to, and there’s going to have to be revisions there. Mechanically, magic and theurgy run off of the same mechanics; but the styles are completely different in this iteration.

07/03/2020 Progress Report, FERMI RESOLUTION RPG: 25,600/37,800.

I’ve decided to go with a 64 page supplement, roughly 15 of which will be made of rules. That means that I have to shore up existing word count in a few places and add a few more pages elsewhere.

In the Mail: The Dragon Age RPG Core Rulebook.

That moment when you realize…

…that the RPG supplement whose used-book price you’re looking at ruefully is actually a second edition of a previous supplement, under a different name. And that the picture on the cover looks awfully familiar. And then you go look on your shelves, and lo! There it is.

Yes. THAT moment. That f*cking moment.

[UPDATE] For clarity: I didn’t spend money on this.  Just an hour and a half of frustrating shopping time.
