Now on the Escapist: Dungeon World - A Closer Look

Some of you may have noticed my absence... As I emerge from my unexpected month-long hiatus like a sinking man clawing at a vine above a pit of quicksand (believe me, this analogy isn't as fanciful as you might think) I find myself wondering:

What am I going to post?


Well, the first and most obvious answer is the announcement that my second entry into The Escapist's "Days of High Adventure" column is live. If you'd like to know more about the (free) "Dungeon World" setting, head on over to the article and check it out.

I guess the second thing is to give you an idea of what I'm considering for upcoming posts. I've got a lot of pots on the stove, so to speak: the promised series of Top Secret resources from my scanning project; the continuation of the "A Comic Ad Is Worth 1,000 Words (or Thereabouts)" series; and a series of horror-themed scanning project and resource posts in honor of the imminence of my favorite holiday.

To be honest, I'm still struggling to recover from being blind-sided by a series of personal issues that laid me low and totally derailed my posting schedule. I can't promise that I'll be back to the regular, post-a-day schedule I was keeping prior to my going MIA, but I will do my best...

  1. It's good to have you back. It sucks when you just can't seem to make your saving roll against real life's complications.

    Then again, we should probably be thankful real life isn't more like a Gygaxian dungeon.

  2. *Rolls on a d% table*

    The imp convinces you to take a second and third mortgage on your castle in exchange for 6,000 scrolls of Stock of Enron. He disappears in a puff of fetid vapors and cheeseburger wrappers.

  3. @Propnomicon: If life were more Gygaxian, surely I'd be of a decent level by now - at least enough to be able to take a vorpal sword to those who vex me. ;D

    @1D30: See my comment to Propnomicon - when I find that imp, he's going to have a close encounter with aforementioned vorpal sword.
