And I’m tired!
- Fiction: ROCCA JACK AND THE LIQUID GOLD JOB. Privateers! Bears! A vampire! And Cursed Jersey!
- RPG material: Artifacts, Chapter 2: The World, Iteration ∞.0. Note the infinity symbol! How swanky!
There ya go.
And I’m tired!
There ya go.
Stuff I just make up stuff about: science fiction, and warfare!
I have to keep reminding myself that it’s OK to show stuff like this off. This is just the preliminary pencil sketch; there are a couple details that need to be tweaked, and obviously the final is going to be in color. But Ben Fleuter here hit all the notes that I wanted hit. I’m really happy with the way it’s coming out.
There’s one minor tweak that I need have done, but otherwise it’s gonna pop, I think. Ben Fleuter does good work. Can’t wait to tease it out to folks.
Ach, what a weirdly productive month it’s been. I’m getting to the point where I need to start thinking about all the other stuff I’ve been — well, not neglecting. Money was paid for these projects; people need to get their money’s worth. But I got a manuscript that needs a second pass-through, then an alpha reader handout. And soon it will be November, and time to write another book. Busy, busy, busy…

The raw files are largely done, praise God. Or done enough to be playtested. Now I just need to put it all together in one file and then I can start looking for some GMs who aren’t me. Yay!Continue reading From the FERMI RESOLUTION RPG: yet more places.
Spent the morning doing spreadsheets! Testing basic combat out with matched characters, unmatched characters, and weak matched characters. And a good thing that I did. As I originally had the numbers go, the raw rolls for matched characters suggested that the average combat would be ten or more combat rounds, which is absolutely too bloody long. Fortunately, fiddling with the amount of damage done solved the problem enough for playtest purposes.Continue reading 07/22/2020 Report, FERMI RESOLUTION RPG Worldbook.
Mechanics, mostly. I’ve made it public and put it up here. Feedback welcome.

The Fermi Resolution RPG manuscript has been updated and expanded, and rules for GUMSHOE added. However, the manuscript still requires text on how to handle necromancy, enchantment, and alchemy; and the whole thing needs to be blended. There’s also art to be included, and a lot of playtesting. A whole lot of playtesting.Continue reading What I will do with the FERMI RESOLUTION RPG worldbook.
Getting some good feedback from people.Continue reading From the FERMI RESOLUTION RPG Worldbook: Technology Hand-waving Made Simple.
I was miscounting pages, so… 6K words to go, after all. The good news is, all the original stuff has had the expanded pass-through and everything else is fill-in-the-blanks. I should be able to hack it all together by Monday and get it out to the other folks having a look-see.
Not much else going on, really.
