Almost caught up/work done

Things have gone quite smooth (touches wood) so far this week with regards to catching up on things. All but two projects have been recovered and restored to the state they were before the HD crash and having to get a new work machine. One, a quick generator, is going to have to be re-done from scratch. The other is my sessions/season plan for Star Trek Adventures. The last is not an issue as much as it sounds – I have had some ideas about other ways of doing things and this is giving me the perfect opportunity to get the groundwork sorted in a better fashion.

All in all, things have, considering the shenanigans of the last couple of weeks, gone much smoother.

I do have one small bit of sad news though  – Phil from Tales of a GM is retiring his blog, so this means no more posts on Saturd...

Patreon Plug Time

Now that Patreon has backtracked on their decision to change their fee structure, I feel like it would be an appropriate time to plug my own patreon, which can be found HERE.

To briefly summarize it:

  • There are 4 tiers
    • Tier 1 – $1
    • Tier 2 – $3
    • Tier 3 – $5
    • Tier 4 – $10+
  • Tier 1 is the basic “Tip” level you get 1 “free” pdf a month plus access to the patron only posts, plus if you need help creating something simple, that can be summarised in one or two sentences I’ll help you or do it for you.
  • Tier 2 gets you the T1 rewards plus what I’ll help you with is expanded
  • Tier 3 gets you T1 and T2 and is expanded further with what I can help you with
  • T4 is more for sponsorship or advertisement levels for the generator pages
  • The current Patron-exclusive project is called the “Deck of Decks” – Lik...

Pre Christmas Update on things

The last couple of weeks has been a mixture of things.

First Patreon said they were implementing new fees..then they retracted that when they vastly underestimated the backlash the would get.

The work pc went belly up. Then a new one was purchased. On that front, all the programs I used before have been installed and sorted, with some minor niggles, like Word settings and so on. I can now begin the task of reconstructing the two of three items from notes and hope I can rebuild the last one from memory, or at least use the same methods.

Then, the joy of joys (sarcasm mode off) I had yet another kidney stone. Not large enough to put me in hospital but enough to put me back on the pain and other medication.

Things are defiantly looking up – at the very least normal operations should be restor...

Semi-back from disaster

A bit of a bad news/good news situation this week for me and Ennead Games.

First, the bad – Last week my work machine suffered a catastrophic hard drive failure. Whilst I do have back-ups, the latest couple of items that were ready to be released were not able to be saved. I have the notes for two out of three of them, they still need to be recreated, have the background pages format etc. In essence, I am having to start again from scratch with this and the other projects as well as purchasing a new machine.

So what does this mean? Well this week, and probably next, there will be no new releases – That and the above “bad” news.

Now for the good

Instead of the planned releases I am, from now until Christmas Day, running a sale on the larger bundles EG has on sale

One is everything that EG p...
