What Did I Accomplish In February?

This month, I continued my effort to produce daily content here on One Yard Hex as well as on www.nothingventuredgames.com. Unfortunately, I missed my goal twice in February, but I still exceeded my word count goals for the month.

I maintained my goal of  100 words for posts here on this blog. To date, I am averaging about 286 words per post. Over on www.nothingventuredgames.com, my goal was still 500 words per Fragments post, and those are averaging 555 words each. In total, I planned to write 3,900 words this month, and I ended up writing ~6,900 words.

In total, I produced:
14 blog posts here on One Yard Hex, including
4 GURPS posts,
1 GUMSHOE post,
1 Fate post, and
8 posts on other topics; and
4 Fragments posts and one news post on www.nothingventuredgames.com (with another news post scheduled for tomorrow, the 28th).

I also streamed 3 video Fallout 4 game sessions on Twitch, and those are all archived at my YouTube page. (The most recent was split into two videos due to a game crash in the middled of the session.)

I was trying to switch my posts from a morning schedule to an evening schedule this month. Unfortunately, I found that doing that made it very easy for me to put off writing the post and then missing it altogether on a couple of occasions. In March, I plan to go back to morning posts to try and stave off procrastination. 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…
