  Works in Progress

It's 2017. I made progress on some projects, failed to completely push through a few others, and made some important breakthroughs on even more. In no particular order, here's what's on my plate at the moment.

  The Harvest

It was the summer I turned 17 when Shannon got taken by the UFO.

  Grand Adventure and Damage

A couple of posts called "What's Your Damage" are up, but not public. I want to talk about consequences, wounds, harm, damage, hit points, whatever you want to call it, and how Grand Adventure deals with the underlying issues that these posts discuss.

  Pelaga

In comments on a previous post, describing a sample world for Grand Adventure called Talispire, I was challenged to do something more than just another fantasy world with elves n' dwarves. Here's the start of one, a water-world called Pelaga.

  More Talispire

This is another list of things I like about Talispire, the sample world for Grand Adventure. In the last post, I talked about playing with standard fantasy tropes. This time I want to talk more about social and identity issues that sit in the text, waiting to be explored - if you want.
