Long time, no update

So here's what's been going on in the world of Transylvanian Adventures of late...

  • Alex Lucard (awesome name, btw) has put up a nice review of TA. I think it's fair and a generous 4 star rating. So that's cool. There are a couple of inaccuracies in there (likely my fault as a writer) that I will try to clear up in a blogpost soon.
As for the print books...
  • I've gone through a couple of rounds of minor edits. Each round takes a while to clear through the approval process. That's the big hurdle at the moment.
  • Bad News: I may have one more edit cycle to go.
As for what's next...
  • You might guess that supporting and finishing up the print-on-demand version of Transylvanian Adventures has absorbed most of my time. That's true. So no new progress has been made on the second book.
  • After the print-on-demand edition is available, I'm going to work on a PDF only cheapo edition. I don't have the street cred at RPGNow/DriveThruRPG to offer it as a free download. But it will be entirely inexpensive, feature only the bare bones of Transylvanian Adventures, and contain no art. It will be a way for people to check it out and see if it's for them.
  • As far as the second and third books are concerned, I'm still formulating the release plan for them. Transylvanian Adventures is doing well but it's not doing well enough, unfortunately. This means I'm going to have to rethink my next steps. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. I'll have more information towards the end of the year but, from what I've been pondering, it could mean more content is made available in PDF form sooner while the full books themselves take longer to complete. We'll see on that.

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

House Rule: Solving for Hit Point Inflation

A character's Constitution score is the lowest a character's maximum hit points can be. Changes & Examples A character's Constitution modifier is no longer applied to the hit points a character gains each level. The character's Constitution score, instead, sets the minimum threshold for the character's maximum hit points. Example: A 2nd level fighter in B/X, for example, with a 15 Constitution would not have a maximum of 2d8+2 hit points but, instead, would have rolled only 2d8 for her maximum hit points. No bonuses or modifiers applied. If the rolled hit points were lower than the fighter's Constitution score, she would take the 15 Constitution as her max hit point total instead of what she rolled with her hit dice. What is this? This house rule is a lot simpler than it seems from the description above. I tried to make it easy to understand but, even reading it, it seems a lot weirder on the page than it is in practice. In pretty much all
