RPG Design

These past several weeks have reminded me why more of this material hasn't been published up to now: this is hard work! In most cases, the majority of the work is already done, but I have to pull out all the books and refamiliarize myself with the entire system just to be sure everything is right, etc., and I haven't played some of these games in years.

It is kind of fun, but I'd be lying if I said it was more fun than actual work. For one thing, I know I have little chance of actually playing any of these games anytime soon, so that tempers my excitement right off the bat. For another, formatting these pages is a real pain - especially since so few of the graphics are anywhere near ready for publication. Remembering to leave room for those and working around non-existent pictures is a real hassle.

But I am working hard, so I guess there's something to be said for that. I figure things will still be slow around here through the weekend, so I'm not bothering to worry with anything like that; I'm fully devoted to the gaming thing right this moment, but will be back to normal here once the holidays are over.

I figure everything will settle down, come Monday, but I'll be here throughout the weekend. Sorry that some of you have had to wait several hours for your comments to show up, but they are being published as usual, just a little slower than normal.

Not to mention how much time I spend perfecting the text and layout and, and...

Maybe I am a "perfectionist" - to the extent that I try to do everything to the best of my abilities (which are admittedly far from perfect). Either that or I simply obsess over details just to say I'm actually doing something.
