Darkness Between the Blog

Postby Angelman » Sat Jan 10, 2015 6:51 am

Hi all,
I post this in the players' forum because it applies to all fans of the game.

Recently, Colonel Bogie/Todd hinted about the blog we’re working to set up, and in relations to that I wonder what kinds of things would the FS community like to see us blog about? Any specific issues or general categories? Publishing history? Small game material pieces (these require official sanction and will therefore take a little bit longer to post)? Design thoughts/insights? Generic rambling (I’m really good at this, if I may say so myself)? Developer introductions? Sample dramas/NPCs/fiefs/starships/etc?

In your best case scenario, what would a FSR developer blog be about?

Best wishes,
V

Hum... could we choose all the above options?

Yes, you could, but that wouldn't be very useful for me now would it :p

Well then, what I would like to see in a FSR blog:
- Upcoming projects and publishing history;
- Sample dramas/fiefs/starships,etc;
- Thoughts and ideas from the developers and designers;
- Generic rambling (since Angelman is good at it :lol: )

I think that is about it.

Awesomesauce!

I'll just second Mr. Holz! :)

I'm guessing the Antinomy thingy is creeping along so I won't plead for more evil rites through the blogs. Perhaps a bit more on church occultism and/or the various pagans?

Møs! :)

FS occultism/mysticism/religion is my speciality, so I'll see what I can do :)

Would you like brand new things or previews best? I.e. should the blog offer things that isn't offered anywhere else, becoming a sort of slowly evolving secondary source material, or should we keep strictly to a preview-things-to-come scheme in the blog?

A mix of both, with "Collected Blog Vols: I to MMCX" being an eventual downloadable .pdf series compiling the "new" material in a convenient series of annual publications....
"The crazy ol' Vorox"

Something witty, pithy and observant ought to go here.

Oh well.

That's not a bad idea, not bad at all that isn't ;)

Seconded!

Nay Thirded! :)

And may I say that it's wonderful to be able to interact so much with you lovely Devs. (Developers? Devils? Deviants?) as well as the rest of this community.
Our crew may be small but it's dedicated and creative!

That said I think the mix of both development news and teasers as well as tidbits of new material.

I think it would be wise to make pdf versions of the new material that surfaces in blogs as players and GMs who don't follow the blog (Shame on them!) would probably like to have the intel as well.

RIght.- I've written much without saying anything new sp maybe I should get back to work :)

Ta-ta!
