To- Do List

A few things I have planned for the blog's immediate future. I jotted this stuff down earlier in my little pocket notebook but I'm putting it up here to shame myself into actually doing everything on the list. This isn't exhaustive, by any means, but I want to at least make a sizable dent in it by the end of the month.

1. Lament for the Wheel of Black: an LotFP hack for M.A.R. Barker's world of Tekumel, stripping it down to the more gonzo, pulpy sword-and-planet version of Tekumel presented in Barker's original Empire of the Petal Throne RPG.

2. Some entries for Zak S.'s Vornheim contest. Deadline's fast approaching...

3. Weird Greece, with revisions.

3. More material for Weird Rome, with notes on RPing in the ancient world.

4. Psychedelic Warlords (working title) A mini-setting for trippy space fantasy in the vein of Jodorowsky's Metabarons, The Fifth Element, Zardoz, the Art of Richard Corben, Philippe Druillet, and Moebius. The sort of thing that comes to mind while listening to Hawkwind's Space Ritual.

5. A Hexcrawl set on a fictional Mediterranean island. If you're familiar with Over the Edge, this would be my take on Al-Amarja -- what I wanted Al-Amarja to be, anyway, rather than the surprisingly bland venue for a hodgepodge of weirdness that it was presented as.

6. I like what Nathan Ballingrud's doing with his serialized "Cannibal Priests of New England." A fiction serial might be fun.
