I’ve been doing a lot of writing on my next adventure in what I jokingly call the Tannic Extended Universe. In all seriousness, I’ll be continuing to write “gay romantic fantasy” in the the OSR/NSR mold. It’s very fun to do.
This email will be short and include some maps I drew recently and a few blog posts I wrote about how I approach writing.

What is Happening?
I’ve been playing old roleplaying games like the Persona series and busy otherwise with my day to day life. I’m hoping to have my next adventure ready for playtesting in October. Look for news on the publication of my Mothership adventure soon.
