Weekly Update – 17th July 2019

Time for another weekly update on things. I think rather than having a good/ba breakdown, covering things by subject matter seems easier for me to structure and post. So, here we go…

Published PDFs

Last week saw the publication of my “Equipment Maker 8 – Ships“. Seemed to be well received and even, very briefly (but that was enough for me :)) to top the small press and “under $5” chart.

Other PDFs (not mine)

A PDF/DMs Guild PDf I had a hand with playtesting (the opening blurb is a reference to my character)  has been released by a friend of mine called The Ripper. A word of warning. This is NOT a player-friendly class, is designed for NPCs, and is, to be honest, a nasty class. But that’s the point...

Weekly Update – 10th July 2019

Hi folks, Chris here keeping the weekly update train going. Seems that phasing posts back in gradually seems to be working , focusing on one at a time until it becomes a habit, seems to be the way to go , rather than dumping a lot on at once and having my brain go “nahhh not having this” – Anyway, onto the update proper!

Books

Got three books this recently (i know I have a “problem” lol), Ghosts of Saltmarsh, Acquisitions Incorporated and a PoD(Print on demand) copy of one of my fave DnD settings, 2nd edition Spelljammer! Next month the Alpha Quadrant book for Star Trek Adventures comes out, much excitement!

PDFs

There were a Humble Bundle pdf and token bundle on sale for a silly price I just *had* to get...

Weekly Update – 3rd July 2019

Another week where not much happened personally but got some stuff done that I wanted to and a bit more.

  • PDF – Got the content done for “Equipment Maker 8 – Ships” and now in the stage of making the document – Should be out for this coming Monday
  • Streaming – Played a bit more Borderlands 2, but the main one Final Fantasy 14 Shadowbringers, went, well it was the smoothest expansion launch I have ever been involved with for an MMO. Granted the main influx starts now, but, so far I rate it 8/10.
  • World Anvil Summer Camp 2019 – As mentioned yesterday, I started the World Anvil Summer Camp 2019, a link to my page can be found HERE.
  • Books – “Ghosts of Saltmarsh” and “Acquisitions Incorporated” arrived yesterday, with “Descent into Avernus” due in September...

Weekly Update – 25th June 2019

Not much to say this week, but trying to keep this going:

  • New PDF released – Pirate Ship Names
  • Started on the sort-of companion peice to this, A ship generator. Started off fairly generic ship-wise but is rapidly heading into pirate territory again
  • Streaming – The Gal Civ III save locked up/crashed and wouldn’t work, so had to end that
  • Started Borderlands 2 to tie me over until FFXIV Shadowbringers drops via early access on Friday (fingers crossed)
  • Whilst I am on the subject of streaming I have a small request. If a streamer such as much self has “no back seat gaming” in their stream rules and as a tag, coming into a stream and then back-seat gaming is not “just pointing things out”….it is LITERALLY back-seat gaming and proves you didn’t read the very few chat rules I have...

Weekly Update 19th June 2019

How goes it in your corner of the world this week? We got the full-on British “Summer” going on right now. I shouldn’t joke, especially after last year when it was a 4-month long heatwave that put a lot of people in hospital and almost included myself in that.

Had some good and bad things happen this last week. Let’s start with the “bad” get them out the way.

  • Almost had what can be described as an “autistic meltdown” playing Final Fantasy 14 last week. The issue wasn’t with the game, it was full on with me getting frustrated with a particular part. When I did it off stream, still had an issue for a little bit but was able to focus more...
