I’m back. If you don’t follow me on Twitter, you might not have realized I was gone. But I was. Last week, I took a sick leave for a week. I had to see a doctor and have some medical tests run. I don’t want to talk about it. Dealing with a new health issue that may or may not be quite serious, but it’s going to need to be sorted over the next six weeks with tests and specialists. It is affecting my ability to work, but I’m not going to let it win. Don’t worry about it.
I just wanted to check in and do the monthly update thing. And, as a tool to keep me on better track, I want to start scheduling my articles in advance. So, here is the schedule for the month of May.
Those of you who have been supporting me at the highest level ($5 or more per article) know that something else exciting is happening this month. Yes, the first month of online games has started for an initial batch of Victim-level Patreon supporters. If things go well for this initial run of games in May and June, the rest of the Victim-level patrons will be invited into the League of the Blue Cloak starting in July. It has taken a hell of a lot more to get this on track than I expected.
As I’m now running games again, there will be content once again appearing in the Secret Stash for Frienemy-level supporters. You guys have been very patient. Good stuff is coming.
In addition, a handful of Frienemy and Victim supports have joined The Angry Discord server already. This is just a casual chat community for folks who want to talk shop. I will be extending the invites to other tiers of Patrons throughout the month. Starting next month, you’ll be able to tune in there for monthly Angry Live Chats. High-level patrons will be able to ask questions and join in the discussion.
Also, there is a HUGE change coming for The Angry GM this month. But I’ll have more details later. It’s something pretty serious I’ve been working at for a while now.
I know all of this backend stuff, Patreon stuff, and health stuff has been affecting the extra content (such as Ask Angry and the Megadungeon), but I really do think those are important priorities. Even though I’m a couple weeks behind my benchmark due to doctors and crap, everything is coming together again, as you’ll see from the schedule below.
As always, thanks for your support and encouragement.
