So my newest project – and first as a product developer – has officially kicked off with the ebook release of Turning Points: Luthien. And yes, I’ll take all the credit on this one, because it began as an off-handed comment over cheese sticks at Champs during GenCon this year and turned into what may be a popular series.
Basically, Randall, Herb and I were discussing jihad-related plot threads and the upcoming books (and marvelling at our still-deep secret development of the soon-to-be-sprung Blake Documents) during an impromptu meeting. Herb had lamented that we’d basically ‘skipped over’ several important battles of the Jihad with the release of TRO:3075 and JS:BD, such as Hesperus II and Tharkad. The current format of ‘as-it-happens’ sourcebooks wasn’t giving us the opportunity to really showcase those battles. So I popped up with “So what if we did an ebook PDF detailing several battles on the planet? Maybe in a campaign format using the track system that everyone seems to like?”
