Here we are in a new year! Well.. we're 3 months into it now, I suppose. I'm always a little behind the times. Anyway, what do I want to accomplish, creatively, in 2022? Let's explore this question.

I love to do a few things, generally:

1. Draw stuff. Whatever the fuck I want to draw. I hope to do this as much as possible in 2022.

2. Make shit up. The great magic of RPGs is their potential. Every game could be a million and one things. I want to make up a million and one things.

3. Publish stuff. I have been self-publishing books and zines and comics since 1988 (87??). It fills me with joy and pride to hold the finished book in my hands. I do not believe I published anything in 2021 so I'm really hoping to get some books out in 2022.

So far this year I've been mostly focused on design, writing, layout for a few books. At this time, there are at least 3 books I could finish and publish this year. GOZR (finished, just working on the publishing end), Doomslaker B/X (tons of work, mostly done), and Hellion Cross (my third Troika! book, probably 75% complete).

I have this crazy notion that not only might I publish those 3 books in 2022, I might also publish a 4th book... a pinup art book. But that's a distant possibility. I have the material, of course.

This all depends on my energy and focus. But I can tell you that GOZR is done and will be out in the world within a few weeks. The other books are largely finished, but still need a lot of work. So who knows? By next month I might be in a death metal band living in Spain. I dunno.

Blue Gooz

Here's a blue gooz with their spiffy helmet.

The game is finished. Now I'm considering the ways in which to publish it. Current thinking is to get it printed through Mixam and sell via Etsy. This feels like a fairly simple way to move forward. The reason I haven't went POD, which I do prefer, is because of the lack of the ability to print inside covers.

I could go with a comic printer, like Kablam or ComiXpress. But then I'm outside of the insular TTRPG community.

Still thinking.

Basingstoke's Butterfly Knife

There was a very crucial weapon missing from GOZR. A mistake I have now corrected.

What's a sci-fantasy full of ugly gooz going to be without a god damn butterfly knife?
