Sunday in the Studio – July 14

July 14, 2019

Today’s project was working on putting together the print version of the Planetary Display Log Book.  As soon as we’ve got an approved print, it will be available from OBS.  This will be an inexpensive version, since it’s a blank book to be used for mapping a single planet.

For those who already bought the PDF version, we’ll have a discount code to get these print copies at a reduced price.  I also need to figure out if we can do a bulk discount (4 for $12 or some such).

It will be nice if the cover is suitable to allow it to be drawn on.  That’s part of the intent with having the simple, faceted globe on the cover.  If it’s not markable (or can’t be marked well), we’ll probably revise the cover.

Our Trav campaign GM isn’t too into the idea of mapping any of the planets in our campaign (there are probably a half-dozen we go back and forth to in this current setup), but maybe this will make for at least some schematic mappings.

Quick Hits – What’s New for April 2019

April 8, 2019

It’s hard to be throwaway with a blog post, but that’s what we need in the post-G+ world.  A kind of shorter, less authored thing, more like the kinds of things we would’ve posted in groups.

Working on the Moon Station Zvezda project.  I’ve got a preliminary mockup of the format I’d like to use for it, and I think it’s going to be a good looking piece. In an ideal world, we’d have it ready on or around the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing in July.  That may or may not happen, but we’re trying.

I got the Planetary Log Book almost completed this weekend.  Letting it percolate for a couple days, and waiting for some outside feedback, but it could be ready pretty soon.  My inclination is to make the PDF a bit more expensive (around $10), since that is actually going to be the useful version where you can print out your own planet books one after another as you need ’em.  The print version (from DriveThru) should be comparatively cheap (possibly around $3 – $4 each), and I’d like to be able to offer batch discounts (maybe 6 for $20 or something like that; maybe a package deal with a few print copies plus the PDF).  I’d like to get a couple outside reviewers to look it over and offer some feedback on the present version.

Recent listening:

Has anyone else used someone as a hired social-media person, and how did that work out?  We don’t do a particularly great job with keeping Antherwyck House out there, and I think it would be useful to find someone who could do a few things for us on various platforms.
