Another week in the life of GURPS

May 5th, 2017 (04:36 pm)

current mood: working

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.

That's a huge amount of life stress. I'm sorry to hear of it, and of the events that created it. Please accept my sympathies and my best wishes.

My condolences on the loss of your father. Mine died in February and I'm still dealing with it. Although it's great to see new Gurps work underway, you should make sure to take care of yourself as well.

Wish you the best

I know I and a few friends were worried about your absence and sorry for the events but wish you the best.

Words are always so inadequate. My deepest sympathy for your loss. (This is Greg 1 from the SJG forums).
