I’m going to withdraw and mark this as a forfeit. I simply ran out of time before I have to move house (moving house in three days, April 30). I’ve been scrambling to get ready for that, tomorrow I break my office down, Monday I finish off disassembling furniture and signing papers, then Tuesday everything in my house that isn’t nailed down gets packed into a truck and moved about fifteen miles that way.
I am not disheartened.
I managed to complete twenty of the twenty-six days of the challenge, from ‘A’ (‘Alignment or Allegience?‘) through ‘T’ (‘Teratic Monster Design‘), with doubles on ‘I’, ‘P’, and ‘S’. I had two more posts outlined: ‘Unlike Any Other: Degrees of Uniqueness’ (expanding on distinctions between monsters of the same types and mechanics as described in Teratic Monster Design) and ‘Variations on a Theme: Teratic Monsters’ (demonstrating more examples of this, showing for several creature types how they can be varied and made more monstrous and/or inhuman without significantly changing them mechanically). I still plan to come back to these.
The posts for the challenge, in order:
All in all I’m quite pleased with my writing. Over 29,000 words, and I believe some of my better articles of the last few years are in here.
Mind you, I’m going to have to go back and review them myself, they happened kind of quickly.
I just wanted to say thanks for the great work this month. I found your blog via your article on Hex Population Density and read most of what was connected to that thread. It has been really useful in designing my own world.
I am now a follower ;) Oh great sage, I await your next missive with abated breath!
Lot of it about. Good reads anyway.
