I've been asked about the current status of the various projects that have been announced and I am heavily involved in. Long story short, my participation is on hold, which means many of the projects are on hold.
Long story long. I caught a viral upper respiratory infection when I was at Total Con. 2 1/2 weeks later, it had progressed to viral and bacterial pneumonia as well as sepsis. 5 weeks ago I spent 2 days in the ICU. A month later, I was diagnosed with the return of pneumonia. That was last Tuesday. I'm now finished with the new antibiotics and slowly on the road to recovery. I still run out of breath walking from one end of the house to the other.
All of this means the following projects are currently on hold, or at least my involvement is:
Torchlight - this was suffering before my URI, as I had been sick off and on pretty much from Christmas 2019 on. Its very dear to my heart. It will happen. No idea when.
Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day - I need the energy of a healthy person to organize this. Not there yet.
RFI Podcast - The return of this classic is currently on hold. I'd like to thank Vince for his patience. He's put no pressure on me and I appreciate it.
My As of Yet Unnamed Youtube - you guessed it, on hold. Daily blogs and podcasts are more than enough for now.
The Return of Fireside Chats on the Tavern Chat Podcast - when I can hold a conversation for 30 minutes or longer they will return.
If you have any questions ask away :)
Catch is a Bug - Let's talk about catch. Tynan Sylvester, in his book *Designing Games: A Guide to Engineering Experiences*, describes the game of catch as an opportunity...
