The Con plague lingers. I am almost over it, a full 2 weeks later, but I have managed to pass it to my wife and daughter who are none too pleased with me. I wonder if the illness was worth the trip to Gencon? EVERYONE in my house is miserable right now, our Labour Day long weekend consisted of us sitting around being sick.
Warbirds is doing well. People are buying it and stuff. That is good news. What I think is great news is that people are already hacking it. I started my game design adventure hacking games over a decade ago, and to see people to the same thing with my stuff is really exciting.
If you go to the thread, they are using Warbirds to hack Macross/Robotech. Now if you have been reading the blog for a while, you know I have a special place in my heart for that weird, flawed, anime. However, the license for producing Robotech RPGs is firmly in the hands of Palladium. I have criticized their work with the license before, but it is theirs, and they also have a history of litigation, so as much as I want to contribute to the hacking, as a writer I choose to err on the side of caution, and keep my fool mouth shut.
Keep hacking, guys. I am waiting for a Top Gun hack (be sure to include rules for shirtless volley ball).
Odds and Ends
I recently fired off emails to everyone who bought stuff at Gencon. I had to deal with more than one mailer daemon telling me I had the wrong email. I was able to fight through most of them, but there are still a few that stumped me. If you are reading this, and you were supposed to get PDFs, leave a comment and I will sort it out. Next year, people will type their email addresses into my laptop.
In other news, I have a few return to sender books that need to be re-sent out tomorrow. After that, all Warbirds commitments will be met... except for Mad Science. Still got mad science to do.
My work is never done.
