Holy Crap, It's July

Boy, have I been busy.

It has been non-stop Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, designing, creating, throwing away, redesigning, re-creating, streaming, and new game playing for the last two months. So much for the schedule I'd set for myself.

Here's what I have worked on, and I hope that I can write about it a bit more in the coming weeks:

-Kylind Campaign is going to be adapted to the Pathfinder system. I have a lot of reasons for doing this, but the main one is because Pathfinder is all published under OGL, or the Open Gaming License. As a writer and designer, this is a god-send because I don't have to worry about stepping on toes when I'm working on my own mechanics. If I like how something works, now I can reference it for players. If I don't like how something works, I can provide alternate rules in my document. Really, it's less of a mess and headache, so that's what I'm working on now - full scale conversion.

-Streaming! I now stream approximately five times a week on My channel is located here and has been added to the sidebar links. At the moment, I stream two things regularly: Diablo III on Mon/Wed/Fri and Minecraft on Tues/Thurs. I may swap a day here or there in and out for other things by request, but that's my general schedule. Be sure to catch me between 1PM-5PM PST/PDT Monday through Friday if you want to see me fail miserably (okay, maybe moderately succeed) at gaming.

-YouTube Videos. This was requested by the few people who currently follow me on stream. Right now, I'm drafting out ideas on what I can make videos for and how often. So this is in the pipeline, just not sure when or what just yet. I'll see what I can do. =) Because there's nothing there right now, I'm not planning on linking it. Just keep an eye out for it in the future.

-THE BOOK. And yes, I do mean THE book (my dad's). Book #3 is on the gamut next for editing and release. It has been in my backlog for two years now, and I have nothing but time to get it done now, so I want to take advantage of that. Other projects will likely have to go on hold for it, but that's okay. I owe it to myself, my father, and to the people who enjoy it to get it out there. That, and if I finish it sometime this year, maybe next year I'll have Book #4 to work on!

-THE GAME. There is a game of the video variety that I have had tumbling about in my head for quite some time now. Unfortunately, I think someone may have gone and made it already, though it isn't out yet. So now, I need to decide if it's worth developing on my own with a few trusted associates as competition. That's a whole other project on its own, and likely the lowest in priority as a result. Definitely has the most work to do.

Last but not least, I am still job searching. You may remember several months ago I posted about what to do when you find yourself without work. Regrettably, I haven't been very good at taking my own advice, so now it's time to hold myself accountable. Feel free to hold me accountable too! Poke me on Twitter. Comment on my blogs. Yell at me about why I haven't posted anything recently.

I owe the world so much for being so kind. It's about time I pay it back by letting all these head goblins out and producing something wonderful. I hope you enjoy it.
