Update: So proof-reading... takes... forever...

I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I mean, there's a reason I had to split this mammoth into two (and then THREE) books. It's big. Well... maybe not big compared to the World's Largest Dungeon or Starblazer Adventures or even DCC RPG. But... gah!

  • I've finished proof-reading 11 chapters. That's right. 11. There are 4 more to go. These four are much smaller. Consisting mostly of random tables.
  • The first two chapters are through layout. We're about 2/3 of the way through the 3rd chapter. That's the 0-Level chapter, for those keeping score. It's huge. And we're debating presentation at the moment.
  • This week will not feature much progress. I'll be at GenCon. And I have a few materials to get together.
  • Those materials will not include deadtree versions of anything. Which makes me sad. But time and financial constraints conspired to run out the clock on me. Come by for some business cards, though. And I should be prepped to run a ton of games, if called upon.
Not much of an update, I'm afraid. Once I'm done with proof-reading, I have some fun blogposts lined up. I'd look for those week after next or shortly thereafter.


  1. Hey! I watched you guys play TA at GenCon this week and we talked about playtesting the Gamma. I couldn't find your email but I want to get in on that action!

Back on the Rack

It's been a long time. But I'm still here. Still working on stuff. Over the last few months, here's what I've been up to. I took a brief hiatus around the end of last year and the start of this year. The holidays are always busy. And work was busy as well. Work's really continued to be busy. I consider that a good thing but it does hamper my ability to devote time to writing. During this hiatus, I took the time to explore what the tabletop RPG community had been up to. I read a number of books, played in some games, ran some games, funded some Kickstarters -- all that stuff I enjoy doing when I'm not the "Transylvania Guy". This is generally a time when I collect ideas. It was helpful when I came back from hiatus to look at Transylvanian Adventures  again with fresh eyes. I've been in contact with a potential co-author for TA . He's very interested and a legit writer to boot. Because he's legit, his schedule is just as crazy as mine

Only Mostly Dead

Well, that went by quickly. It's been a couple of very challenging months here. I've been able to dive into TA sporadically. But it's not uncommon at this point for my work hours to be 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. or later. So time has been at a premium the last few months. Here's a brief update to remind everybody that I am still, in fact, working on this. NTRPG I did not make it. I was on a plane with my 7-year-old and 5-year-old to fly them to the grandparents. I was optimistic that this would free up some time for the book but it didn't work out that way. As far as the book, here's where it stands. The Good I'm about a third of the way through re-writing the monsters. The new format works fairly well for me and exists in some strange place in between DCC RPG , 13th Age, and Dungeon World . As part of the Monsters section, I'm working on the Advanced Rule Options as well. This where the infamous "cleavage rule" joins us. The prima
