So....it's been several months since I asked: Is it safe to say that we aren't going to get a print version of Glass Maker's Dragon, like, ever?

I promise, this will be the last time I ask about it.

At last report three weeks ago, Jenna was on what she hoped would be the last proof review of GMD. Once she's done with that, POD copies will be available to buy from DriveThru. (Jenna's move at the end of 2017, and her messy start to 2018, delayed things considerably.)

Correct. The proof got here ... four or five days ago? I need about a week while not sick or injured to review it.

Best wishes,

Jenna

Just logging in quickly to beam about my new Chuubo's swag.

I'm on vacation at the moment, and my sister presented me with a belated birthday present:


My games are going to be very fancy.

That's Chuubonic. (Chuubular? Chuubtastic? don't know what the appropriate Chuubo-related adjective is.)

Jenna has posted a coupleof new thoughts on a Horizon campaign on her blog. (And also answered a bunch of questions about CMWGE.)

A few thoughts:
  • The Troublemaker seems like an obvious fit for Bastet to me, unless I'm missing something. Too on the nose, maybe?
  • If I had a say, I'd vote S'aa as the potential PC the Antiquarian. I could come up with some justification, but who doesn't love big puppy whale skate squid things?
  • Interesting talk on default character gender balance. One of the really fascinating things about Chuubo's is how easy it is to play any character as whatever you feel like.

Edit: An ancient Egyptian toy puppy, taken from the British Museum's website. (So people would know what S'aa might be like in the game.)
Spoiler: Show

I think I personally like Wicked take Typhon the best as a pure Typhon concept, although the evolution into Antiquarian is awesome and she'd be cool to play. (Also seems like a broad enough concept for a College-age Miramie* or Sakura too, but I think I've got GMD on the mind too much.)

No real opinion on gender distribution; the cool thing about Chuubo's is there's basically no characters that can't have their gender swapped a bit. Heck, I've always found Chuubo themselves a really easy option to make non-binary if the situation calls for it. (the Wishing Child?)

* I mean technically Miramie/Melanie qualified as a jurist rather than a historian, but it's an easy enough subject to convert to as a postgrad. (I sort of assume a qualification from the Bleak Academy is fancy enough to qualify as an undergraduate degree rather than a Highschool Diploma in Town's educational institutions, given the specialist nature of their curriculum.)

I dunno, the Bleak Academy and how few colleges it has strikes me as kind of an early to mid-19th century kind of deal, before specialization into tons of departments really gained traction. It used to be that there were only three sections in European universities: The basic education everybody started with in the form of the general education field of trivium (source of the term trivia) and the mathy bits known as quadrivium, the higher education of theology and the higher education of law. Then in the early 19th century, engineering started becoming a thing and universities grudgingly started teaching it, just as they grudgingly started science departments, but mostly still called them natural philosophy. Those fit the Bleak Academy perfectly. The College of War and Nightmare is the engineering department, the College of Natural Philosophy is, well, natural philosophy, the College of Magi is the general starter education and the College of Dream and Nightmare are the two traditional higher educations.

About gender distribution, I feel like Seizhi and Rinley are probably the two best to make default nonbinary. Seizhi was made to fit into Chuubo's life, which gives some obvious malleability, while Rinley is Rinley no matter what and there's no need to let a little thing like gender define them. Chuubo and Jasper do seem pretty straightforward as well.

Also, I kinda hope Natalia ends up back in the main campaign book. She feels as iconic as Chuubo, Jasper and Leonardo and has been around since Fable of the Swan and Horizon seems to be her intended home turf. It just feels a bit off to not foreground her more in a Horizon campaign. On the other hand, this also means that she's probably had her time in the spotlight in the first two campaigns if she does go to the amin book.
