With the release over there is this weird lull in production. Usually I have three things going at once so if I get stifled on one project I can work on another to keep me going. But I noticed a couple of weeks after a product release I just need to take a step back and take a breath. Hell, I didn't even go to my Monday Night gaming session this week.
Like I said, this is not uncommon. But I still find it strange to need a break from gaming. With that said I have one piece done for the next Manor, a micro-adventure nearly done (and an idea for a series of them) and a project that needed completing a while ago. In addition, I've been messing around with modern, supernatural themed type adventures.
A Random Topic Change
Another subject I wanted to bring up was subscriptions. I just fulfilled my first subscription. It was a six issue run and at times I wondered if I would ever get there. But I was talking with a fellow ziner, +Daniel Sell who produces the wonderfully creepy Undercroft zine, and we were discussing subscriptions. And it got me to thinking of doing another round of them.
I wanted to just get an idea if there would be much interest. Here's how I would handle it this time around.
- Like last time I would open subscriptions for a window of time. I don't want to have to manage staggered subscriptions. So if I opened it up again the subs would all start with issue #8.
- This time around I would do a 4 issue subscription. Seems less daunting and I have a better chance of completing them before the post office increases their rates.
- I haven't worked out pricing. I'm thinking $16 for 4 issues for US folks and then on up for Canadian and other worldly orders.
