Gaming Miscellany

jediwiker talks up a thread over on the Paizo boards about WotC's lack of outreach to the Paizo folks. Short version = Paizo has no 4E materials or OGL in hand, and no ETA for either. JD mentions "end of October" as the likely date for publishers to see more from WotC. Here's hoping, because the countdown to GenCon is definitely already happening.

I'm going to run an event at Emerald City Gamefest. If you want to play, drop by Third Place Books on Lake City Way on November 17th from 1 to 5 PM. Completely free admission. Let me know if you want to play at my table; it's a straight-up D&D clockpunk adventure. Characters provided, most likely.

mark_gedak discusses monsters and classes over at his Purple Duck Creations. He's got a thing about Otyughs, which always amuses me. He's found some ridiculous uses for the sewer beasties, and some scary combos. This time it's... No, I won't spoil it, but it's a well-tempered otyugh.

What else? Oh, I'm still proofing and finalizing Empire of the Ghouls, and forging ahead with the Six Arabian Adventures. If anyone knows how to contact the artist Karl Waller, I'd be much obliged.

Pretty obvious that someone forced the hand and move the product launch by 6 months if not more. The recent post about the "Race & Class" preview poduct being outdated (not stated that way, but that's what it is.) also seems to indicate this. Also, if they are talking about designing artifacts and weapons now, how can the playtests even be a proper playtest that takes all the factors into account?

Anyway, I just wanted to congratulate you on having both Kobold Quarterly's on the top 5 at Paizo.

Thanks, KQ is having a pretty good run right now. I think the next issue will keep things moving the right direction.

Yeah, I do start to think that WotC, despite having worked on 4E for a couple years already, may be pushing ship dates forward. The playtest timetable is looking very weak compared to 3E.

In some sense, it doesn't matter. My game will happen Sundays regardless. :)
