To state the obvious, it's been longer than expected since the last update. Appointments gave way to more appointments, my job shut down due to corporate downsizing, and cutting back... Read more
Ok, as pointed out, an update is well overdue.
Where things stand now:
I've brought one additional writer on board, and am waiting to hear back from another that I... Read more

The "Melting in the Dark" Update
The soundtrack for this update is Donna Summer's "MacArthur Park," which (no joke) is for some reason one of my favorite songs. If you're not familiar with the song, it... Read more
Hey, gang. Tomorrow's going to be a pretty busy day (like today, but with the difference being that I'll be away from the computer all day) so we're not really... Read more
New Art Previews

This Is Not a Stretch Goal!
So there wasn't a 700-backer stretch goal, but we hit it anyway. ;)
In addition to the three caster-type class templates being included in the campaign/drop-in book, a fourth template... Read more
Well, the tally currently says that we're over $15,500, but there's a decent chance that the extra funds are the result of a typo in the pledge field. I've contacted... Read more
