Digging for a Dead God: 7,000+ words.
Calling the King: 17,000+ words.
I guess Act 3 is gonna be 27,000+ words or something. Sheesh.
This one is a toad strangler, folks. Last night, I woke up from a very intense dream and could not get back to sleep. I decided to get some writing done. I plopped down in front of the Mac and started typing… but after about thirty minutes, I started feeling… something. Just a sense of real dread. And for a moment, I knew that if I turned around, the Man in Black would be standing in the doorway. I knew it.
I turned slowly… and he wasn’t there.
At least, he wasn’t there when I looked.
I quickly retired back to the bed and put myself back to sleep as quickly as possible.
Now, writing in the afternoon, I still get that itch down my spine every once in a while. And the cat jolting around isn’t helping.
The writing is mostly done. I’m gonna run one more playtest on Friday then hand it off to Aaron for art and layout.
And hopefully–hopefully–I’ll have the PDF for sale at Gencon.
Don’t read this one alone, folks. Just don’t.
