With little over a week left in the year, I thought I would do some analysis on the company. How’d we do? Well, we released a total of 11 new products this year (plus 4 d66 lists, but we’ll talk about that later). In previous years, we tried to release one product every two weeksContinue reading “2016 in Review”

Calm Before the Storm
Right now, I’m preparing for a number of announcements we will be making next week. It is going to be a busy week to say the least. But frankly, everyone at JBE is really excited. You can almost feel the palpable anticipation through your daily, sometimes hourly, emails. It is the calm before the stormContinue reading “Calm Before the Storm”
The Right Font for the Right Job
Last night I was working on the cover to the next Book of Beasts. Placing the logos is a lot more time consuming than you’d think. “Does it look good here or should I move it over 2 pixels?” is a common question. Yes, being that nitpicky really is that important. So I came toContinue reading “The Right Font for the Right Job”

Update to My Whole Secret Project Thing
Just a quick update. For personal reasons (of maintaining my sanity), I instead decided to launch my whole secret project thingy on Jan 13, ’09. My original intent was for Dec 16, ’08, but things got in the way. But This will allow me a touch more time to get things right the first time.
What Does Traveller Need?
As a Traveller referee, I have a decent idea as to what would make my job easier. But I am not a player so I do not know what kinds of products a player would desire. Any suggestions?
Coordination, Not Timing, is Everything
When you’re going to do something big, you have to time it just right. Striking while the iron is hot is important, but so is being coordinated. At the end of the day, coordination is more important. Even a slow economy can work to your advantage. Being as professional as possible by meeting deadlines, havingContinue reading “Coordination, Not Timing, is Everything”
Tonight’s Traveller Game
As part of my writing regiment, I write out my material for a given role playing game. So for Traveller, I write out my patrons, I write up a description of a planet, the goods for sale, places for the players to buy drinks and so on. Previously, I just came up with a listContinue reading “Tonight’s Traveller Game”
Travelling the Stars of My Dreams
Ever play Traveller? I have. I’m still new to the game, and by new I mean I have played two sessions since the new rules were officially launched and two sessions of the playtest rules. That’s it. Its been around for 30 years and I played 4 sessions. I ran all of them. Last nightContinue reading “Travelling the Stars of My Dreams”
