I do not have a lot to report but here are the latest things happening in the background that will most assuredly lead to some posts in the future.
Escape from Camp Blood: I am still jotting down ideas but would really like to get some serious work done on this board game. The truth is, I do not have a tremendous amount of serious board game experience so the going has been kind of rough. Eric at Memories of the Mayfly has been tremendously helpful with providing insight and ideas but I just have not had any solid ideas yet. It will come along eventually but in the meantime I want to say "Thanks, Eric" and hope that the game starts to take shape soon. It kind of sucks to be stuck in brainstorm and research mode with no real progress to show. Soon, I hope to have something for us to make available for download.
Swords & Wizardry: After a bit of investigation I believe that I have settled on Swords and Wizardry for my standard retro-clone of choice; as in, games that stick pretty close to the older editions of D&D. I think S&W does a fabulous job of it and I am working on a project right now with Venger that should be completed later this year. The DCC RPG is still my all time favorite neo-clone type of game for all of the little changes it makes in the rules.
Toldara: I have two ongoing projects for my campaign world. First, I need to complete the B/X campaign handbook; who knows, maybe I will whip up a S&W version also? Second, I need to update the map with some geographical changes and additions.
USR: I am still working on the zombie apocalypse adaptation of the USR system. Most of my work has consisted of background and setting material because USR tends to fade into the background. The biggest change is in the name of my project. The name, OUTBREAK, is already taken by a small press rpg and also used for the title of a supplement to another game. I have decided to either use REMNANTS or REMNANTS OF HUMANITY.
In case you were wondering what has been going on behind the scenes, there it is...
