May apologies for that, but lots of stuff going on with me, and as noted in this journal entry, I've been working my butt off on the re-edits of the Shadow, Sword & Spell Basic rulebook. The editing work on the Shadow, Sword & Spell: Basic book has eaten up large chunks of my spare time, and virtually the last two weeks have been spent editing that book when I wasn't at work, or doing somethings friends- or family-related.
Suffice it to say there was a lot more work on some of the chapters of Basic than I had expected, but I have managed to finish off this round of re-edits (though I have my doubts that the book was actually edited when it comes right down to it, given some of the sheer grammatical and spelling that I've had to correct), and the now properly edited chapters of the book are back with Richard Iorio II at Rogue Games. I like to think that the edits and work that I've put in to the book will makeBasic a better rpg rulebook, and that the Shadow, Sword & Spell game will be better for my work. Only time will tell, I suppose.
So now I sit back and wait for the revisions of the edits to come back from Richard for some more possible editing, as well as in the hopes that several other projects for Shadow, Sword & Spell get tossed my way in the meantime. If nothing else, the edits on Basic and Expert will have to be gone over again, so I'm assured of some more to do on both those books before the end of the year. I've also submitted a couple of adventure ideas to the folks at Rogue Games for the system, and will see if any of that bears fruit.
