Just saw the KS update. I’ve longed and wished and hoped for more on the Entity since it was first revealed in the Great Rift adventure - handled correctly I’d say it has the potential to end up way up there with iconic entities like Halo’s Gravemind, the Lich King of Warcraft or the Zerg/Tyranids. Awesome!

And if it truly unfolds like a mix between Great a Rift and Element with a hint of cosmic horror... yummy!

A suggestion - send a kickstarter update about deapnight endeavour/revelation to the Great Rift backers and the Element Class Cruisers backers - I won't mind getting the same email a few times but you may hit the inbox of people who didn't back JTAS.

Oh no, wouldn’t dream of it (In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming...)

(Tell me, do you hear the Entity’s whispers too, or is it just me?) Time to seek out a crowded planet and spread some spores...

There shall be no spores in IMTU, thank you very much.

Alien (the ancient guy).

Lives outside of space and time (in a pocket universe).

Sends visions and madness (the empress wave).

Grandfather is Cthulhu.

What does that make Droyne?

They make more sense than the Civil War and Virus, if you ask me :wink: :lol: ...

Yet spores explain so many things, including how jump drive technology works.

So the secret of jump drive technology is magic mushrooms?

Makes more sense than some of the other theories... :D

I tend to favour potential zombie cats.

Skandersvik (the Sword Worlds Campaign Book) is done and delivered.

I'm now writing the rules components of Deepnight Revelation. No zombie cats yet, but there's time.

Awesome. Send it to me and I’ll do some free proof reading for you. :)

I gather from Matt’s comments regarding illnesses in the office that art and layout are going to take awhile. Projects are kinda backing up, which is a high class problem, I guess.

That doesn't really change anything from the point of view of my poor overworked ass. I have a pile of work to get through, and once it's done there will be some more. It does delay the appearance of finished goods though.

Could be worse. You could be underworked.

There does get to be a limit to being "blessed" with overwork. If all you do is work what's the point of anything?

A lot of times it's self-inflicted or an artefact of deadline timings.
