What Did I Accomplish in March

This month, I continued my effort to produce daily content here on One Yard Hex as well as weekly Fragments on www.nothingventuredgames.com. Unfortunately, I missed my blog goal once in March, 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 338 words per post. Over on www.nothingventuredgames.com, my goal was still 500 words per Fragments post, but the average there dipped a little to ~480 words each. In total, I planned to write 4,700 words this month, and I ended up writing ~8,300 words.

In total, I produced:

  • 18 blog posts here on One Yard Hex, including
    • 6 GURPS posts, 
    • a 5-part series looking back at Vampire: The Masquerade 1st Edition, and
    • 7 posts on other topics; and
  • 5 Fragments posts (including tomorrow's entry) and one news post on www.nothingventuredgames.com (with another news post scheduled for tomorrow, the 31st).

I also streamed 6 Fallout 4 game sessions on Twitch, and those are all archived at my YouTube page.

I was less concerned this month about when I posted. I'll see if that had any measurable effect on views. (I suspect it won't.)

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…
