This right here’s my final standing replace. I’m sick of writing these items. And I’m gonna do that one fast and soiled. I promised I’d do that as soon as I had a plan. I do, so I’m.
First, the opposite evening, I gave a Dwell Chat on my Supporter Discord Server. The primary in a number of months. It went on for over two hours. The primary half was a recap of what’s been occurring and the way I’m doing and why and the way issues have gotten completely derailed. The second half was simply off-the-cuff enjoyable like my Dwell Chats often are. I talked about a couple of enjoyable issues after which took questions and feedback from my Discord peanut gallery.
I usually don’t make these recordings out there to most of the people. They’re bonus content material for my supporters. However, within the case, I’m going to let anybody who needs to hear as a result of I believe it’s essential to be as clear as potential. However, it’s a protracted ‘un. And so I’m going to summarize the essential standing replace bits under.
Second, in the event you simply need to know if you’ll get some precise content material, right here’s the thin…
Due to my well being, monetary, and life scenario, I’m properly behind in my content material launch schedule. In an effort to permit myself to get again on observe, for the following six weeks, I will probably be placing my main sequence on maintain and specializing in one-off content material. I’m not going to fill November and December with Mailbags and Bullshit. It’s good, strong, meaty content material. Nevertheless it isn’t tied to any specific sequence. It’s largely matters my followers have recommended.
I’ll, nevertheless, be offering the Massive Social Encounter Instance promised within the True Sport Mastery sequence and I may also be offering the much-desired Infiltration and Stealth Encounter article that I attempted to push off. I don’t know when they may come out, exactly, however they are going to be combined in amongst the following eight articles I publish earlier than December 31.
The True Marketing campaign Managery sequence will begin for actual in January. True State of affairs Designery will observe later in 2024 when True Marketing campaign Managery is completed.
The Indignant Hacks sequence may also begin in January with the Pressure Cube hack and it’ll proceed every month with numerous hacks particularly helpful for downtime, townmode, and basic world interplay.
Proofreadalouds for articles will resume in December and proceed into the brand new yr.
Articles in November will probably be printed on Wednesday, November 22; Friday, November 24; Tuesday, November 28; and Thursday, November 30. The December schedule stays to be decided however the focus will probably be on publishing content material weekly. Doubtless on Wednesdays.
That’s it… that’s the restoration plan for content material. No less than, so far as I do know it. Something I didn’t point out remains to be up within the air.
Very briefly, as a result of I’ve obtained numerous involved messages, let me go over the issues I defined intimately within the Dwell Chat for people who don’t need to hear.
First, I used to be delivered to the Emergency Room twice and hospitalized as soon as attributable to an unexplained drawback with my coronary heart. I didn’t have a coronary heart assault. My coronary heart seems wholesome. However I suffered episodes of untamed and irregular heartbeats often called atrial fibrilation. It isn’t a life-threatening situation, although the underlying trigger has but to be decided. I’m working with my physician and a heart specialist to determine what’s occurring and the way greatest to deal with it. However, for all intents and functions, I’m wholesome. I ain’t going anyplace for some time.
Second, my relationship with Allie — The Tiny GM — has ended. It ended by mutual settlement and, although extraordinarily tough and emotional, has been an amicable separation. However as a result of the connection has been ongoing for over seven years and since we have been engaged to be married, it’s a very tough and protracted course of.
Third, and partly because of the 2 above incidents, I’ve been left in a particularly tenuous monetary place. I’m not in peril of shedding my place to reside or ending up on the road or something like that and I’m not contemplating shuttering Indignant Video games or quitting as The Indignant GM and I’m completely, positively not looking for monetary assist of any form. I’ve numerous choices open to me that, with shrewd cash administration and a really thrifty way of life for a couple of years, will let me get again on secure monetary floor inside twelve months. However the stress and uncertainty surrounding it’s simply including to the burden of all the pieces else.
Briefly, I’m exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious, and depressed past something I’ve felt for a lot of, many lengthy years. I’m feeling crushed down. However, I additionally refuse to remain down. I by no means have; that isn’t who I’m. I intend to maintain transferring ahead, even when it’s at a limp. Even when I’m dragging myself.
So, I ask on your continued endurance as I attempt to get again on track. As a result of I promise I’ll. I at all times have. That’s simply who I’m. Thanks.
