2014-07-27 : The Days are Few and Busy

...But the work is good.

AW:Dark Age

On Thursday we leave for Italy for two weeks. There's basically no way I'll have a playtest document ready before then. But it's going really well and I'm getting really close.

I'm getting the sense that a lot has changed since the last playtest.

Previews and teases are lame and I've had my fill with Comic-Con, but once it's out I'd love to get a bloggy sense of your development thoughts, what got iterated and why those changes got made from a design perspective, and also what the actual list of items on that countdown clock were.

Since I'm where you're heading, I am willing to accept your requests for bribery in exchange for your drafts :-)
Be ready; it's one of the craziest summers in Italy in quite a long time. Be prepared for some rain.

Where in Italy? Since i'm italian, if you don't mind me asking

Sure! We're going to EtrusCon, in Montecatini, plus a few days in Milan.

aww, too bad it's a bit too far for me, 350km from my house. I would have liked to meet you in person :)
I lived near Montecatini some years ago, in Lucca. ;)

Cool! We come to Italian cons pretty regularly. Maybe next time.

I just handed off 8 playbooks to my co-designer Meguey for her comments. She hasn't told me what she thinks of them yet. I'm all anxious.

The playbooks are solid. Good grabby bits, pieces definitely coming together nicely. Let's playtest this!

I'd love to playest this :)

I'll be putting out the call for playtesters as soon as the playtest document is ready. Like I say, there's basically zero chance that it'll be tomorrow, which means that it'll be in mid-to-late August instead.

2! Down to 2!

See you all when we get back.

Have a nice trip!

Oh!  Excellent!  I took this look, hoping to see another notch, but I'm greeted with not 1, but 2!

Now, here's hoping (not expecting) some momentum to carry us quickly into a new beta test!

Oh, mid to late August then!  That's exciting!
