Where in the Hells has This Guy Been?

What's new with me and where I have been:

So, you may have noticed that I haven't been around much since wrapping up the giveaways form SWAp Day.  I have been pretty busy with work, fatherhood and something else.  That something else is the next Goldenrod supplement.  I've taken some time off from almost everything else to real pound away on this one.  It took far too long for me to produce the combat guide.  The next one is going to be a booklet centered on one class, the Sorcerer.  

I got to thinking about the Sorcerer that I adapted for S&W back on the original SWAp Day in 2013. I decided that it was time to really hammer the thing out.  Well, I'm more than half done.  All that I have left to do is write up some of the new spells that I have ready and it will be good to go.  

Revising G&G:

Another thing that I've been thinking on in my hiatus is "Hump-day Hildebrandt."  I want to keep rocking this, but with an expansion.  Starting this coming Wednesday, you can expect to see a revised feature.  "Inspirational Wednesdays" will occasionally feature Hildebrandt are, but it will feature so much more.  From music and film, to art and literature I will be posting images and articles about things that have inspired my games, or things that I have recently found that I  find inspirational.

Well, that's all for now.  Just wanted to let you all know what I've been up to.  I'll let everyone know when the next Goldenrod Guide is available.
