Hi! Peggy here with a quick update on how things are going in Troupe Games Land. (Not affiliated with any real land. But if it were, there would be weeds everywhere right now.) Shawn and I have been radio silent too long and I am terrible about remedying that, but here goes!
Let’s start with me. A year plus of lockdowns, kids being home all the time, things upending in general, and I’ve had some mental health…fun. Basically, my depression meds stopped working, slowly enough I wasn’t even aware until everyone was aware. I am now trying an increase in medication and hoping it will help. Which means all my projects including three for Troupe Games should see some updates. The other projects are fiction and not game related.
Shawn’s day job has been very busy. He’s finding time to work on things, but in dribs and drabs. He is juggling 60 hour work weeks with me, the kids, 3 dogs (one of which is a new puppy) and an almost grown-up kitten. And, while Shawn is doing a great job (not paid to say this, the truth) it does leave free time to work on games in short supply.
And we both are trying to find time to finish up Rise of the Wildlings in particular. The art is paid for. The book is 85% written and has been through round 1 of editing. We are so excited to get this book into people’s hands and continue our saga for the Jonstown Compendium. So, it is coming. Just, later than we’d intended.
Now, the good news is, book 3 Lances at Dusk is about 50% complete and should not take nearly as long to get into people’s hands.
So, there we are. Here we are. In conclusion, things are going.
And, HAPPY PRIDE MONTH!
