Another week in the life of GURPS

Yes, it has been much longer than a week . . .

I was away for the entire month of April. I was not on vacation (on the contrary, I could really use a vacation). Rather, I was called away because my father was dying. I helped care for him until his death and then helped my mother tackle the ensuing chaos. The stress made me ill – a situation from which I am still recovering. So aside from a brief bit of work way back on April 3, I had to write off a whole month.

I am back now and playing catch-up as well as I can. I'm going to start from a clean slate and fill you in on my activities this week, which I'll name Rama.

• I reviewed art for the three Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game stretch-goal items.

• I turned around a review of a first draft from Hans-Christian Vortisch.

• I began my review of a first draft from Phil Masters (phil_masters).

• I caught up on various "other tasks," which ranged from proofing an article for a trade magazine, through brainstorming on GenCon stuff, to offering recommendations for our next few GURPS releases via CreateSpace.

This week is named Ferdinand. The news:

• I reviewed the final PDF of Dungeon Fantasy: Magic Items – well, final but for some art.

• Ditto the final-but-for-some-art PDF of Dungeon Fantasy: Monsters.

• About that art . . . I continue to review illustrations for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game.

• Between Dungeon Fantasy tasks, I have started reviewing the first draft of a follow-up to GURPS Tactical Shooting.

Many more administrative tasks found their way across my desk, too.

This week is named Vasili. The news:

• We released Pyramid #3/101: Humor. You can read about that here.

• I reviewed yet more art for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game – once again, mostly for the cardboard figures.

• I turned in a couple more articles to support the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game.

• In a surprise twist, I stepped away from the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game to start reviewing several first drafts that were sitting in my inbox throughout 2016!

I also spend a fair bit of time on really thrilling administrative stuff.

This week is named Rosita. Everything I did was a continuation of something I started last week:

• I reviewed even more art for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game – mainly art for the cardboard figures.

• I finished vetting errata for the next round of GURPS books going to CreateSpace. That has nothing to do with the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game.

• I continued to write articles to support the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game.

This week is named Daniele. The news:

• I reviewed final PDFs of Dungeon Fantasy: Monsters and Dungeon Fantasy: Dungeon to check page references, get final word counts, and so on. That settles the words in five out of five books, though a lot of art is still pending approval.

• I also reviewed final PDFs of the two booklets to be included with the Dungeon Fantasy GM Screen. Again, that settles words but not art.

• Speaking of art, I reviewed more of that – including the map for Dungeon Fantasy: Dungeon 2 and some beautiful full-color portraits of NPCs for one of the Dungeon Fantasy GM Screen booklets.

• I edited the final text revisions to Dungeon Fantasy: Magic Items.

• I found time to dash off a promotional article for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game. I have no idea when that will run.
