Today Rach and I celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. In the Spring of 2021, I wasn't even sure I'd be around to see our 9th anniversary.
I owe this very blog to Rach, as she encouraged me to start it and stick with it when we were dating. She has supported everything I've accomplished in this hobby of ours, and I can't thank her enough. I am far better for having her in my life than I would be without.
We missed GameHole this year, but thanks to Jeff Jones (layout artist and unofficial Tavern project manager), print issues of Torchlight Issue #1 were for sale at the Frog God Games booth. It is likely there will be a handful available at TotalCon and Gary Con. I've asked Bad Mike to ship me about 10 copies, and I hope to have some available for OSR Christmas.
Yep, OSR Christmas is sneaking upon us. If you are a publisher and you wish to participate in the gift of giving, email me at tenkarsDOTtavern at that Gmail thing with "OSR Christmas" in the subject and we'll add you to OSR Santa's Gift Giving List. This year, some of the gifts may be given away on the various Tavern Livestreams in addition to here at The Tavern's Blog.
Possibly around Christmas, we may see the release of Continual Light - Digest Sized Edition. Yep, it's dropping Swords & Wizardry from the title to make it a bit easier to parse, but the rules remain the same.
We are looking at micro settings from James Spahn and Rob Conley in support of the new edition. Too early for details but exciting times.
Early 2022 should see the launch of Pub Crawls, the one-sheet OSR adventure series. Bad Mike has a few ready-to-go to editing and layout. He's chomping at the bit to get these published ;)
Also, early 2022 should see an exciting announcement for Torchlight and its future. More on that when we are closer, but if all goes well we should have a semi-regular release schedule, print issues, and more.
Tomorrow I dye my hair blue, due to the generous donors to St Jude's Children's Hospital and last Saturday's Tenkar Does Yoga LiveStream. More embarrassing madness to follow :)
