Holly Jolly Holdup

So, despite my regular updates, things haven’t been going pretty well.  I’ll be open with my readers.  I’ve been less than well.  My leg pain has gotten severe and alarming, I’ve had several stress related incidents and I’ve even been to the hospital in the previous week.  This has been a rather hard year for me, but I want to stay dedicated and devoted to this fun little page.  This time of year has always been rough on me, whether from work or personal issues.

Who knows?  I might soon polish some more works to put into equally (if not more so) awesome projects sooner rather than later.  But, for the time being, I need to focus on recover, especially as holiday-time retail proves particularly abusive.  I’ll try to update my patreon too, including formatted PDFs of some of my posts.  Plus, I might alter how my Patreon page works too.  But, recovery comes first, as I’ve said.  This week might very well have to wait.  None the less, I wanted to be honest with my followers.

Doc’s (back) on Patreon!

So, about two years ago, I tried to boot up an account and I didn’t really know what to do with it.  In short, I ultimately took it down.  However, it’s time to bring it back up.  I’m hoping this provides a great way to help revise my old content, preview new stuff and help to improve my work along the way; all while providing my viewers with awesome things worth coming back to.  As always, stay tuned!

Accursed Vampire Swashbucklers!

It’s talk like a Pirate Day and here I find myself fending off seaworthy undead!  The process has left me a bit drained.  But seriously, I hate constantly making these posts, but at the same time I want to keep everyone in the loop.  I’ve been exhausted from work, a lot of personal stress has gotten me down, among other things.  I’m not completely sure that my current post (Evard) will reach too much of an audience, granted this is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while.  It’s also a conversion document, which might be a fair bit more niche… even more so, since it was a somewhat obscure module meant for organized play MAAAAAAANY years ago.  Needless to say, I’ll push myself to create something, probably for next week.  Whether it’s another DM’s Guild update or some more fearsome creatures of the realms of the Gothic, I’m not sure yet.  Heck, I might try to toss up something tonight or tomorrow!  We’ll see!  But first, I need a moment to recoup from the challenges of both the otherworld and the real world.

 

On another note, I think I created a name for an adventure or a monster post!  Even in my fatigued state, I still have tons of crazy ideas!

Updates, Overhauls and Musings

So, I’ve been putting some thought to this.  Paypal isn’t really working for me, especially since they have come across as kinda seedy.  With that, I might fully switch to Patreon instead.  I might have some neat bits for future projects put there, perhaps the prototypes as well.  On top of that, older posts might be given new life there, using patreon as a workshop space to brush them up so they’re more up to snuff with newer content… or at the very least, the core of the game itself.  So, content like the beastfolk races and various other things will likely be moved to this work space at some point.  I’m honestly not proud of them and am tired of seeing these dated drafts getting the most views.  For the time being, they’ll probably be set to private.  However, something will be made available at some point.  Perhaps.  I’m not sure yet.  I’m not really good at the Patreon thing and can’t really think of rewards, but extra support helps me continue, especially as things get slightly rougher and time is more of the essence.

Anyway, this is mostly just rambling and putting my thoughts out there in regards to the blog.  Nothing is really set in stone yet, with anything.

CHANGE OF PLANS!

Due to a recent announcement, my Gaslamp/Gothic/Weird Western theme is temporarily semi-suspended.  I plan on releasing a mixture of more monsters as well as some player options, (possible) alternate rules and magical items.  I’ll release what I have in a few days before this train goes from steam to lightning.  That’s right, Eberron content!  Also, I say semi-suspended because Eberron kinda channels that gaslamp setting sensibility in a few ways.
