Upcoming new feature – Resource Tuesday

As I have mentioned a few times, here and on twitter, I’ve run out of all the planned generators I had notes and deatails for.  Now there is no need to panic. This doesnt mean I’m going to stop doing generators on the site, far from it, just that till will not be every week like before. Now the question has come up, what to put in the gap whilst i hunt for new material to make into generators.

Then the other day it hit me – generators are not just the only resource people need.

So, the plan is, starting next week, on any weeks I can get a generator out, I’ll be putting up other resources for people to use.

These could be, but not limited to…

  • Map Tiles
  • Maps
  • Programs and tools
  • Printouts/player handouts
  • Other sites, such as blogs

I’ll be putting up a new page for just these links and mater...

News – Blog/Site Changes

Warning: Long non-ranty Blog post incoming
TL: DR – Some changes coming to EG after I take a much-needed break.

The last 2 or so years for me has been a major struggle, both financially, physically and emotional. With a couple of deaths of close family members close to each other, my own personal health fluctuating and other issues, it has been a long period of stress, which is now catching up with me.
This is why there is no new releases or RPG roundup this week. After posting this post, I’ll only be posting “re-runs/best/favorites” posts until next Monday.

When I return on the 30th of January, I’ll be starting off some new changes for Ennead Games that will help me in the long term. It mostly concerns the website, but also concerns behind the scenes work as well.

No gen this week and some other news

No new generator going live this week. I got a lot of work to catch up with, including finishing off the sci-fi version of the adventure outline maker and the latest in the Spell Options series. Plus am planning what will be going on in the new year, once the current Campaign Chunks and RIGS volumes are done. Things should be back to “normal” in the new year.

In other news, Open Gaming Store has a 30% off almost everything sale going on, and that includes Ennead Games

Lastly, in case you haven’t notice, I have updated the rewards at Patreon. Now, starting at only a $ you can get a free PDF most , if not every month, and I can help you with your game and story preparation.

Hope you all have a great holiday season and new year.

Concerns about the future of Ennead Games

Warning : Semi-rant incoming

Recently, this week in fact, DrivethruRPG/OneBook shelf changed their sorting algorithm that sorts the order of titles shown in the Hottest Titles strips.

Before it was based on units sold/number of days on sale. Now it has been changed to sales$/days on sale.

This change, according to them was made because some publishers complained about their higher investment $10 or $15 etc PDF titles getting crowded out by PWYW titles.

You may be wondering why I am posting this? Well to be perfectly honest, it affects EG and other small publishers a LOT. Many of us sell cheaper, smaller items in the sub $2 price bracket. This results in higher units per day...

No new generator this week

No new generator this week. I am trying to work on a new layout for the main generator page that makes it not only easier to find what is wanted, but also makes it easier and less cumbersome for me to add in new ones and not spend ages re-arranging everything. This has to take into account things like mobile devices and tablets, as well as various browsers and more. It’s proving more frustrating and fiddly than i first hope, but I will keep the current format up for now and only change over once/If i am satisfied with what I am working on.
