Sentai Revisited

Well, the new job at MiniMart is not working out as well as I had hoped. So, I've given notice and am currently looking for something better. The last few weeks have been rough- in fact, I'd call them absolute crap, but hopefully the next few will be a bit better.

I just sent Heavy Weapons to Mark for posting at RPGnow. This nine dollar sourcebook is about 130 pages of very crunchy goodness- hundreds of new spells, magic items, mundane weapons and pieces of gear specifically for the Heavy Future campaign setting. And just to remind you, Galaxy Command itself is now a free product! Go get it when you sign in to download Heavy Future or Heavy Weapons.

I've got a small and motley assortment of projects on deck. Among them.....

1. Dirty Galaxy, a disease, haunt, trap and other innanimate nastiness sorucebook for Heavy Future.
2. Expanded Races: Erobots- robot fetish character options for Heavy Feature's most fun and modular new race.
3. Masters of Endara Campaign Setting- my He-Man and the Masters of the Universe inspired fantasy setting.
4. Closed: Monsters of the Army of God- still waiting on the last art from Felipe Gaona (grrrrrr).

However, my real-world situtation has me just distracted enough I'm not getting anywhere with any of them. So today, I plugged in a season of CSI, and started looking back at my Sentai material and revising it with an eye for POD. I figured it would be good, brainless work that would recharge my batteries a little with its completion. I'm right about that- tonight I'm about 70% of the way through the conversion and consolidation into one larger POD sourcebook. I will be combining the material from Sentai Spectacular and Sentai Sequel into the POD release, along with some, but not all the material from Expanded Occupations: Children of Gaea and some new, print-exclusive content.

Because of Amanda's art process, I've got solid B&W inked line work for the art, which will be easier to get into print, especially considering the ongoing darkness problems we've been having with BTU. So Sentai might beat hentai to the POD market as the first Otherverse Games POD release. You just never know how things are going to turn out, either in real life or in terms of desktop publishing.

Talk to you later, and hopefully I'll have more cheerful news,

Hey Chris, sorry to hear that you're having a hard time in the real world. If you'd prefer I'd have no problem paypaling you money for the books instead of going through DriveThruRpg so you'd get a bigger cut. Let me know and I'll shoot you my email.

Nah, thanks for the offer, but if you do that, Mark and John don't get their cut.
