Dark Elves Retrospective

In case you're reading this and weren't aware: as touched on in my last post, the Battleground: Fantasy Warfare* Dark Elves are (mostly**) out, and have gotten some player feedback on the Battleground forum and are my first lead designed gaming project.  So, I'm going to tell the tale of how this came to be, my thoughts on the experience, what went right, what went wrong, and what I feel like I've taken away from it thus far.  (End of post note: this is really long, so be warned.)

Not Dead Yet

Hey all, just wanted to note that I've got several posts percolating: more political stuff, and a Battleground Dark Elves design retrospective.  (Since the Dark Elves are my first published lead design, I feel like it'd be neat to look back on what I did, what worked, what didn't, what lessons to take away, and so forth.)

Unfortunately, we've had a series of disasters at work including two thefts this week (though we solved the one tonight, woo!) so I've not had the time I wanted to.  I have both Monday and Tuesday off, so expect something then if not before.  Thanks for reading - I love to write this stuff, but sometimes the job eats the time for it!
