My Upcoming Projects

For those of you who are interested in an update, I completed a 148- page manuscript for Deathtrap Lite just over two weeks ago.

When you edit your own work, however, it is easy to keep missing the same thing over and over again, so I started a second project: Midnight Zone. My idea was to create a distilled version of my Over Six Engine that was not as interested in being OSR compatible, while still using OSR-style time keeping, initiative, and NPC randomizers.

I made it into a Cyberpunk system (or it might be better called Post-Cyberpunk) so that I would be forced to go over everything with a fine-toothed comb to make sure I was consistent with the new genre. It has helped me catch a few inconsistencies, unclear rules, and typos right away.

Once Midnight Zone has a draft done, I will go back and edit Deathtrap Lite, the release an open beta for anyone will g to help me make it better. Then I will go back and update Midnight Zone with what I have learned.

I am really proud of Midnight Zone, it is strange, offbeat, and takes Cyberpunk into a very different hostile environment: the floor of the Antarctic Ocean.

So here are some screens hots to whet you whistle :
