Dear patreons, dear readers!
May has come and gone and brought some great material with it – beyond managing to catch greatly up with a tone of Purple Duck Games material as requested by some of you, I have finally finished the literally most research-intense review I ever did with the Dracula Dossier-books. I hope you enjoyed those reviews!
I’d like to extend a heartfelt welcome to those of you who joined the patreon recently and salute those of you who had to sit back for a while – you’ll always be welcome here when your finances improve!
Last month was a bit stressful regarding prioritized reviews, since most of them only were asked for at the end of the month – I did anticipate ItC: Unicorns as one of them and thus began playtesting at the beginning of the month, but e.g. Playground Adventure’s Royal Base Class thus has slipped into this month – expect to see this review hit site soon. For June, I am currently aware of the following prioritized reviews:
Shadowrun Rigger 5.0
In the Company of Treants
As always, please tell me as soon as possible your choices.
I am pretty proud of the output this month had, mainly due to *A LOT* going on in my personal life regarding job applications and the like – rest assured that I will keep you updated on any decisions and developments that may influence my output beyond what you’ve seen this month. I am currently working on a bunch of rather awesome projects that are gaming-related, but you’ll see that soon. 🙂
On that front, depending on whether I can scrounge together the required bucks, I may be in Copenhagen for a couple of days in June, so in case some of you happen to be there and I can make the trip, I’d love to meet up. Right now, I don’t think it will pan out, but we’ll see! I will certainly update the site and let you all know!
Now if everything goes according to plan, June will be the month where I’ll, among other things, get Path of War Expanded and the Kineticists of Porphyra-books done, so yeah…hope you’ll enjoy those. They are a ton of work.
As for other reviews/information – as noted in my review of Ponyfinder, 3 hardcovers are waiting in the wings (Get it? -Sorry for the bad pun there…), but before those, I still have two smaller books to eliminate from the print pile; both of these will hit site this week, at the very latest next week. Obviously, non-PFRPG-reviews will continue, with me covering basically anything you want me to within the set of systems and rules I know – and yes, this means more 5e, 13th Age and GUMSHOE as well as OSR-material.
I haven’t been idle on the miscellaneous musings-front either and started collecting material from various sources and scratched bucks together to watch Civil War and a couple of similar movies. At the same time, though, the Dracula Unredacted review has left me with a metric ton of vampire-based theories and readings of said book and vampires in general…and I have written down my notes on two interesting arthouse movies you may or may not enjoy – so, dear patreons: Any preferences here?
At the suggestion of a reader, I am currently looking into the logistics of running a skype-campaign (interval to be determined) for e.g. the Dracula Dossier or similar games – would there be an interest for the like? If yes, what would you consider appropriate as a donation-level?
I think that’s it for now. So here is the array of reviews I finished this month:
