The “final” version Microlite74 Swords and Sorcery will be released early next week, assuming real life doesn’t throw me any unexpected curve balls. I only have a few hours of layout and formatting left to do.
To be honest, I could have released late last week or early this week, but I’ve had trouble contacting two of the three cancer fund donors who wanted ads in M74S&S. One bounces about 90% of my email attempts back to me and the other may be receiving my emails (as I get no bounces), but I’m not getting any replies. I’ve decided I’ve tried my best and am going to go ahead an publish early next week. These donors can have ads in future M74 publications (if i don’t get an ad from them before I finish layout for Microlite74 Swords & Sorcery). Microlite74 Companion II will be coming out in November or December with more optional stuff, include the material Lightlass has been posting to the Microlite74 Forum, so there will be another publication very soon for these ads if I can ever get in touch with the donors who wanted them.
I will also start working on Microlite74 Plus in earnest as soon as I finish layout for Microlite74 Swords & Sorcery. Hopefully, I will be able to a very early (and very incomplete) beta of Microlite74 Plus available in November. I’d like to have the spell and monster descriptions more or less complete for the “beta 1” version so that even in beta form it will be useful to Microlite74 players.
BTW, if you are one of the donors who wanted an ad, please contact me NOW. Please give me an evening/weekend phone number when you do and I’ll call you if needed. Apologies and thanks!
