Dear patreons, dear readers!
First of all, I’d like to thank my patreons for their continued support, for having my back, for their kindness! Without the support of my patreons, there would be no endzeitgeist.com.
This month has been rather turbulent for me, and honestly, rather stressful. In spite of my mini-hiatus, I have exceeded the page-count of my usual production, which should tell you something about how hard I have been at work on your behalf.
I am pretty happy with the amount of material I have finished; beyond cutting down my print to-do-pile to only 2 books (both reviews are almost done!), I have done a lot of catch-up work on various publishers and covered several big and time-consuming books. There will be a couple of big reviews this week and in the weeks to come!
Which brings me to the subject of prioritized reviews: If you are eligible for a prioritized review, please tell me as soon as possible! I have a couple of multi-slot priority reviews that will be completed this month, which makes time crucial indeed.
Come hell or high water, the following reviews will be completed in July:
Rite Publishing – The Gamemaster’s Guide to Kaidan
Everyman Gaming – The Skill Challenge Handbook
At LEAST one of the two LRGG files I received
Echelon Game Design – Echelon Reference Series: Barbarian
Jon Brazer Enterprises – Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Compendium
Fat Goblin Games – Firearms & Margarine (in fact, that one will hit sites tomorrow!)
I *might* also finish my review of the Grimoire of Lost Souls, but considering the huge size and density of that tome, this one may carry over into August.
In the spirit of transparency, I have to let you know that the second half of July will be an extremely busy time for me, real life-wise. I am not 100% sure how much time I’ll be able to devote to reviewing for about two weeks. I have been pulling several all-nighters to set up a back-log to publish and make sure that you get enough to show for your support, but there is a chance that there’ll be some days where I won’t manage to post an update.
I assure you, however, that there will be AT LEAST one review for each day of the month, very likely more. All prioritized reviews and the wishes of my patreons, obviously, as always, take precedence. So, if you have some requests, please don’t hesitate and tell me! 🙂

I thank all of you, my dear readers, for being interested, for being a cool community.
If you haven’t done so already, please consider supporting my patreon. If everyone who visited my site would donate $1 per month, I could do this full-time and actually save a bit – every little donation helps and the more people there are who consider my service at least worthy of a cup of coffee, the more stable this whole operation becomes and I do listen to my patreons -the OSR, 5e, Falkenstein and Cybergeneration-reviews all are the result of my patreons asking for them! Here is the patreon.
I take a bow…and since it’s convention-season, roll some dice for me and have fun!!
