This week is named Jean-Baptiste. The news:

• We did it – we released the Discworld Roleplaying Game in PDF! You can read about that here.

• We also released Pyramid #3/104: Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game. More on that here.

• The bulk of my personal work this week was seriously behind the scenes . . . I cannot talk about the two biggest things except to say they're not writing projects but more in the vein of support.

This week is named Robert. I'm wrapping it up early because I'm suffering from either allergies or a cold – either way, yuck. The news:

• I pitched in on Pyramid 3/104, which comes out next week.

• I took care of final details on the stretch-goal items for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game (those being Dungeon 2, Magic Items, and Traps) so we could get the Dungeon Fantasy Companion ready for print.

• I finished my review of that first draft from Bill Stoddard (whswhs
).

• I'm working on a new and better way to deliver the GURPS News. Stay tuned for more, err, news.

• Update to a previous update: On June 2, I posted links to Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS. Those didn't work. We've since made a few tweaks (to the URLs and the lists themselves) and now all is good.

This week is named Clyde (there was no report last week because I wasn't feeling 100%). The news:

• I reviewed production PDFs of both Dungeon Fantasy Traps and the second Dungeon Fantasy adventure – that is, of two of the three stretch-goal items for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game.

• I worked some more on errata fixes for GURPS releases via CreateSpace.

• My review of that first draft from Phil Masters (phil_masters) continued last week, though I had to put it on hold this week to take care of the two matters above.

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.
