Normally when I do the A-Z Blog Challenge, I wrap up with a ‘Z-A Index’ of the posts that month. I’m tired, and it’s an easy title and basically mechanical post.
This year I could have used the post title ‘Zounds! Almost 40,000 Words!’
In fact, that was the working title until I decided that being consistent with previous years’ practice would be better.
Counting this post, I have written 39,006 words for this challenge, and I’ve laid the groundwork, or least done the pre-thinking, for a game I had no idea I was going to work on.
I thought I was going to file down the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game to bare metal, then rebuild it the way I would have liked to see it. Instead, I almost immediately jumped the rails and started replacing mechanics left and right, where I didn’t discard them entirely (bye, ability scores!)
‘Jump The Rails’ actually might be a better title for this series. I thought about changing it, but I was mid-series and figured that would not be a great idea. I might still do it, now that I’m wrapping the series up.
I think I probably will continue work on this game, though. Now that I’m not constrained to the blog post title format of the challenge I can go back and refine things in a more organized manner.
Without further ado, here is the Z-A Index for my A-Z Blog Challenge of 2020.
