On a more personal note ...
Folks, in the last update I complained about being sick, but I'm definitely not the one who should be complaining. I'm almost hesitant to bring this up, because I don't want it to seem like I'm playing on sympathy to garner pledge-money. (I'm not. Seriously! I'm hereby ordering you only to pledge if you are interested in Metamorphosis Alpha and want to support the game project.)
Some of you may know that for the last few years, MA creator Jim Ward has suffered a series of health setbacks. I'm very grateful that his original condition has been treated, but he had a heart attack and is going in for surgery on Tuesday for work on one of his lungs. Everyone is quite hopeful this will lead to a big improvement in his health and his strength will come back better than it has for a while. Your thoughts, prayers, and general support are all very much appreciated, as we hope Jim will be with us for many years to come.
Anyone who would like to send a get well card, letter, etc. can send them to my office and I will forward everything at once to Jim.
