Well, the students have finally started back and we get back into the daily routine at work, rather than the project driven summer holidays. For those who don’t know I work in I.T. at a UK University, and the last few weeks have been frantic as per usual. But as I said they’re back and things are settling down a little again.

As a result I haven’t been a productive as I would have liked, having got a new set of cover stock art out, and a few other publisher resources ready for release, but I haven’t been entirely idle on other projects. I have started laying out Marauders 2 for YotZ, and continue working on Shadow of the Zombie. Additionally, I am working on a number of Masterplan Modern: series floorplans, some of which will be suitable for a Post Apocalypse version as well, and hopefully one or two will also make potential YotZ Encounters products.

Finally I have started work on what I hope will be a great resource for YotZ and Post Apocalypse players in the D20 Modern setting. One of the things I often find when working with the YotZ setting, is the need for a few survivor NPCs. And by this I mean, not the Fleshmongers, Marauders type of survivors, but general everyday folks who have by wit, skill or luck managed to hang onto their lives despite Mr Hungry trying to take it at every turn. These are the doctors, lawyers, students, builders, electricians, normal people who we all know.

So I thought that a series of products detailing more rational, and normal survivor types at various points in the rising would be a useful resource for me, and therefore possibly for other YotZ GMs as well. Additionally, I will be not only providing a bio, stats and other information on these NPCs but their zombie stats should they die. These zombie stats will be in form of “Zombie Cards”. Index cards of the zombie so if you need half a dozen zombies you can randomly pluck them from a deck and voilà zombies ready to go.

If you have any thoughts on how this product idea could be improved, do feel free to drop us a line.

Finally, I am including 2 more wallpapers from John Picot. Enjoy.

Weekly Roundup

Well apart from the new StockArt Cover, there’s not alot to add. This week has mainly been dedicated to icing a cake for our friends combined Stag and Hen Party, hence forth known as a Sten Party (we suggested Hag Night, but the girls weren’t overly keen on that idea).

That said I have still managed to get a little work in on Pluto Rising (The first Dead Future adventure), mainly working on building the floorplans for the I.P.S.E. Pluto and getting some ideas down for nasty trick to spring on the party as they occur (usually as I am mapping a particular section and think “That would be fun to do here”). I’ve also managed a little more on Shadow of the Zombie, starting to work on the Jiang Shi (or Hopping Dead) from oriental myth.

I am finding that OneNote from Microsoft it a great tool for recording your idea’s and building up the various project I have on the go, and double useful when linked to SkyDrive so I can access the file anywhere I have Internet access. If you haven’t tried OneNote yet and have the Office Suite I seriously suggest you have a look, you won’t regret it.

Finally, I have picked up “Rise Britannia” again, and I am making some progress on the outline for this book.

Anyway, enough for tonight.
