What Did I Accomplish In January?

At the beginning of this month, I started my effort to produce daily content here on One Yard Hex as well as on Not only have I managed to keep up with the schedule I set for myself, but I've exceeded my word count goals nearly every day.

For the most part, I set a goal of only 100 words for posts here on this blog. To date, I am averaging about 350 words per post. Over on, I set a goal of 500 words per Fragments post, and those are averaging about 690 words each. In total, I planned to write 5,800 words this month, and I ended up writing ~10,500 words.

In total, I produced:

  • 17 blog posts here on One Yard Hex, including
    • 7 GURPS posts,
    • 1 GUMSHOE posts, and
    • 9 posts on other topics;
  • 5 Fragments posts and one news post on (with another news post scheduled for tomorrow, the 31st); and
  • One news post on my Patreon and an update to the campaign page copy (and another news post scheduled for tomorrow).

I also streamed 9 video game sessions on Twitch (six for Fallout 4 and three for Dragon Age: Inquisition), and those are all archived at my YouTube page.

I feel good about my ability to keep up with the schedule I laid out at the start of the month. I planning to keep this rate up for next month, and I'm hoping to produce some great content. I hope you'll keep looking in from time to time. If you enjoy what I'm doing, consider becoming a patron at Patreon!

Well, my first crate arrived today, and I thought I'd go through it here on the blog.

Discworld RPG Review

The Discworld Roleplaying Game is a standalone fantasy RPG written by Phil Masters with rules based on GURPS Fourth Edition by Steve Jackson Games. It is the second edition of Discworld RPG, following the original GURPS Discworld published in 1998 and reprinted under the Discworld RPG name in 2002.

For those who may not be familiar, Discworld is the setting of an extremely popular series of fantasy novels written by Sir Terry Pratchett. The Disc consists of a flat, circular plane resting on the backs of four elephants who in turn stand on the shell of an enormous turtle which swims through space. It began as a fairly traditional — if satirical — fantasy world, but through over 40 novels, Pratchett advanced the setting into a rich canvas on which to poke fun at the peculiarities of modern life.

The first edition of the Discworld RPG was based on GURPS Third Edition, and it included GURPS Lite, a pared down version of the core system. Still, it relied perhaps too much on knowledge of th…
