Hi! I’ve missed you all! But I’m back with avengence and I’m ready to go!
So a lot has happened over the last month or so, from moving house to shoulder surgery, stepping away from projects and starting new ones, I’ve found myself with some time in my schedule to finally get round to writing my DM’s Guide to Ancient Greece.
Disclosure: I’m not sure what form this will take yet, it’ll either be: a Theros hack; a DMs Guide to building an ancient greek world; or an ancient greek Campaign Setting. Whichever it turns out to be though, I can’t wait to show you all the end result.
This is something I have been working on for the last year or so on and off, you may have heard me talking about various different versions of this in the past, but I’m finally going to do it and actually finish it this time. So in order to give the project a little jump start, I found this:
Throughout the rest of this month, I will be doing #Slotober alongside my other projects to get myself back into writing this stuff, and the results will be posted on here. Each prompt will show a snapshot into the work I’m doing (though will likely face heavy editing when I finally incorporate them into the finished piece) and will hopefully get you guys as excited for this as I am. As the month comes to a close and we head into November, I’ll keep you all updated and you’ll continue to get snippets and sneak peaks as the journey continues. This isn’t a journey I’m undertaking on my own though, a couple of good friends of mine, @SaltLordRoss and @SilentAddle, will be helping me along the way with new subclasses, monsters and who knows what else along the road.
In the coming week’s you’ll also be getting a new series called FrostyFriends, which will be my D&D 5e Rime of the Frost Maiden character diary. I’m absolutely loving writing this and I hope you all enjoy it too. You can also check out ‘The Wandering Party’ our 5e Actual Play Podcast DM’d by @SaltLordRoss. I will do a full post on it at some point, but until then though, you can find it here!
For those of you less interested in my Tabletop RPG stuff though, don’t be disheartened. I plan to start ‘They’re Reading Greek Tragedy Online’ up again next Saturday with my commentary on their upcoming episode on The Iliad, which I am super excited for. There will also be a few classics reception pieces coming up and as well as another series in the works, and I’m still working on that Stonehenge piece I promised you all.
Having taken huge inspiration from @Hells_Belle99 with her work on After The Belle (which everyone should go check out, her work is amazing!) and @Wrestle Joy (also awesome) there may be a few more wrestling posts coming up, though I’m still undecided on whether they will be posted here, see if they can be hosted elsewhere or if I’ll start up a sister site for them.. We’ll see how that goes and cross that bridge when we come to it.
For now though, I’m going to leave you to it! Enjoy what’s left of your Sunday (or whatever day it happens to be when you read this) and I’ll see you all again soon!
