Done some work on maps for my next Squaddies scenario.
Also read the 2 part "Towards a Taxonomy of Cliches in Space Opera" by Charles Stross, where he lists cliches and mercilessly takes the mickey. I shall file it away as incredibly useful source material for SF games. (The articles are in Focus magazine, which is sent to members of the British Science Fiction Association).

I don't know if its the same as published in Focus

(ETA: I don't know Mr Stross' work, something I should change but that list sure makes me think he's played Traveller a few times and is likely at least a lurker at numerous forums)

Yes, the print magazine version of Focus appears to be based on that online one.

I'm still alive, got back into working on my D&D world. I made a new Druid circle (Circle of the Elements) for it! http://homebrewery.naturalcrit.com/share/B1NTFM4c-

Taking a big step for me and being more "Profesional" in my "hobby".

I am taking a Writer's Workshop - 4 days of reviews and honest criticism.

Hopefully, this will make me a better writer...

Wonderful!

As of myself, I am working on Stellagama stuff myself; I have one product almost ready for release, and I am working on another, even cooler one.

Hope it was interesting and useful.

Today I've drawn some more bits of map, and then realised just how much more I have to do before Dragondaze on Saturday! Engage panic mode now. :-)

The workshop was REALLY good, I think it will be a big help in my RPG writing.

I also had two publishers interested in some of my fiction (!).

I also attended an RPG World Building forum. The leaders were the people working on Star Trek Beta Quadrant and the writer/creator of Victorius (Victorian superhero).

ALL FOUR had read my RPG stuff from Stellagama. Additionally, afterwards, one of the audience members asked me if I had written "Space Patrol" (Available on SFRPG.COM from Stellagama Publishing). When I said "Yes", he asked for my autograph.

Overall, a great ego-building week! :) :lol:

Congratulations! You definitely deserve the praise. Your material is wonderful.

I wonder if they have read TSAO as well :-D
