I messed up by forgetting to do this update last month, so we’re already off to a fantastic start. However, the reasons to have this email list remain extremely strong, those being that social media is a shit-show where nobody gets to see a damn thing you talk about. Facebook keeps trying to get me to pay to let people see my posts, which strikes me as a little bit of extortion. Anyway, I promise to try and do better, and if it gets to the second of the month and you haven’t seen an update, feel free to nag me.Here’s your update for the last month.
Last month was pretty good for work, I managed to release two products, Satana Station for Machinations of the Space Princess and the restart of my ‘zine ‘Autopsy’.
I will be looking for submissions in the future and will be paying $10 a pop for articles or doodads 500-1500 words. So if anyone’s interested, you might want to get in on that.
I’m also looking to support artists, in particular, who are affected by the Coronavirus. So if you have any friends in need, who have a bit of talent in that regard, send them my way and I’ll see what I can manage.
The virus is, obviously, having a fairly dire effect on many businesses, including mine. I have actually done OK, two releases and a big stock art sale (go to DrivethruRPG, select Postmortem Studios and select ‘Clipart’) along with my various ‘side gigs’ mean I almost made minimum wage last month.
A lot of people are hurting though, and if you can afford to give them your support, please do. Authors, game designers, artists, cosplayers, LARP stores etc are all especially harmed because they have all become so reliant on the convention and event circuit, so spare them a thought.
I’m knocking out a bunch of small projects and blogs at the moment, to maintain a steady release schedule. A lot of people are playing games online or finding themselves with a lot of time on their hands, so providing tools to help people stave off boredom and to give them something to do seems like a good idea.
I have been doing promotional giveaways, but they’ve been hit and miss and now, with the virus, obviously I want to stay away from the Post Office, so I’ll be doing them electronically.
I’ve been ill. With no tests there’s no way to know whether it was The Dreaded Lurgy or not, but I’m starting to feel better. It’s stopped me doing videos and recordings for about a week because of a terrible sore throat and a dry cough.
I live rurally and naturally self isolate anyway, which is a pretty good thing as I’m fairly high risk (bad lungs from childhood asthma). So far the only real impact on me has been a lack of groceries, and my missus being underfoot all day, which isn’t ALL bad.
I was trying to run RPG sessions online to provide something for people to do who are forced out of work or self-isolating at the moment. The uptake was disappointing, but I want to try and keep that going. Watch my social media for updates on when sessions are – it can be fairly short notice. I aim to do them around 7:30-8pm UK start, and keep them to short, convention-style slots of 3-4 hours.
If you have a group or can get together a group of 3-6 people I’m happy to bend that time to meet your demand, and run during the day or late in (my) night. Just get in touch.I also have a Facebook group for people who are interested: https://www.facebook.com/groups/grimstream
Depression seems to have backed off a bit, which is nice. I’ve been doing this ‘gratitude journal’ thing, that was recommended by Kurzgesagt, I’ve found it somewhat useful, but not as much as they suggest. Unlike a lot of this stuff, there’s some actual science behind it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPPPFqsECz0
I’ve been playing the ever-loving shit out of Mechwarrior 5 and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, which I wish I could stream, but the Switch is shit for that. Perhaps when I’ve completed it, I’ll play something I can stream from the PS4 again.
