Leaving Blogger

I'm leaving Blogger to do all my blogging over on LiveJournal. It's easier for me not to have two blogs, and I get more feedback over there.

[How We Came to Live Here] Update

Quick update on HWCTLH:

I have a rough draft of the basic rules done, and I am doing some editing based on quick review feedback from Jason Morningstar. It's always great to get a second pair of eyes to look at your design. I had a number of things in the rules that were basically just a legacy from an earlier version. These were rules that solved a problem I had, but as the rules evolved the underlying problem disappeared, yet the solution lingered on. I should have an alpha playtest version ready in about a week or so.

I've also been talking with Jonathan Walton about doing a character sheet for the game, and he also expressed interest in doing a cover. I will be consulting with him on this over the next month or so and we'll see what we get.

I'm excited to have some motion on the project! This one has been a seriously long slog, thanks to increased pressure at my day job, and the fact that IPR has sucked up all of my out-of-work time.
