State of Things – A Ennead Games/Blog Update

What’s this? A blog update? But I thought it had been abandoned I hear you cry!

Worry not! This blog post is, as the name suggests, a way for me to update you about how things are going and what I am doing about stuff for the future.

First things first РUnless my financial situation goes really belly up, the blog and the generator will not be going anywhere (more about that later). The last few weeks, well, months if I am brutally honest, I was on the verge of burning out along with some other mental health issues. So, I wound things down, like with my workload for EG and the blog.

Whilst I don’t want to say I am back to full strength, mentally speaking, I am doing better, but will still have to take things easy...

Update on things

You may have noticed I have not been making many PDFs this month. Not to worry! I have been taking things a bit easy this month due to what can best be described as “ongoing health issues”. The summertime is always particularly hard on me. Yes, we get summer in England and I enjoy all two days of it ūüėȬ† So for the next few months I am going to be bringing out only 1 or two pdfs a month, then once things settle down will try and ramp things up.

It’s nothing to worry about, honest, just one of those things I have to do from time to time. One thing I am planning on doing is to revamp the categories on DTRPG to make things easier for customers and so on, such as putting all the free items in one, all the Creature Generators in their own and so on.

In the mean time, dont forget that over at ...

Modified Streaming Schedule

Due to some technical issues with the games and streaming software I’ve had to modify the games that I am running on HERE. As far as I can tell it’s not one thing that’s causing the problems, but a combination of the games being old, my system not being 100% perfect and having to run in a window, rather than having two screens (for game and OBS/Streaming software that is needed).

This means that on Thursdays will be playing another MMO – Assuming no issues will be Star Wars – The Old Republic and on Fridays am jumping ahead to Fallout 3 (then NV and FO4 once they are done). This will be added to the “set up a guild/group” plan for playing with others and so on. I think this will be it for MMOs for me, for the foreseeable future at least.

Saturdays still remain the same – Planned to have ST...

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 РI 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  РPhil from Tales of a GM is retiring his blog, so this means no more posts on Saturd...

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...
