Writing Update

Attack of the Frawgs update: My partner in crime, the lovely Ms. Catherine Harkins, is working on the one-sheet for the module for adverts. I’ve drawn 2 of the 3 maps which will be included using Campaign Cartographer 3. I’ve also done the first edit of the Adobe InDesign layout; once I do my first pass, Cat comes in and waves a magic wand and the InDesign file goes from looking like a plain-old Word doc to something magical. She’s like Cinderella’s fairy godmother that way. I’m confident all will be finished to allow us to align shipping with the Spring 2012 release of DCC RPG.

Haunting of Larvik Island (DCC Re-Master) update: as I mentioned in a previous post, I’m now re-mastering Haunting of Larvik Island (aka Larvik 1) for DCC RPG. This adventure (long ago in its infancy) started out as an AD&D adventure for my home group so going through the re-master for DCC is like slipping on a comfortable pair of jeans. I’ve converted all the monsters to DCC format, and now going through and and giving it fresh polish, and tweaking here and there as I’ve since done quite a bit more work on the mythology of this 3-1/2 module adventure arc. I’m hoping this can be complete by 3Q 2012.

“Larvik 2”: I’m still in the writing phase of this module, and it’s looking to be as big, if not a bit bigger, than Larvik 1 (so about 40 pages). The entire outline for the adventure written, and I’m about 1/2 through the writing of all the text. This one will probably be ready in 2H 2012 as well as I would still need to do all the playtesting, layout, etc.

Through it all, we continue to play DCC RPG on game night (including being lucky enough to playtest an upcoming GG adventure) and talking about what it is we like about in our favorite RPG adventures and how do we, “… do more of that!” as we write.

I’m very excited about the release DCC RPG, and I think you should be too.
