I’ve decided to participate in NaNoWriMo this year (and I need to write another 1500 or so words tonight to keep on track…). I mention it here mainly because I’m trying to write a novel that takes place in the Slime Story setting. I hadn’t originally been planning to participate, but unlike every previous year since I first heard about it, I found I have both an idea for a story and enough free time to actually write stuff. (Seriously; while I’ve been a college student NaNoWriMo, Game Chef, and so on have always come at the worst possible time for me). Anyway, my NaNoWriMo username is “neko ewen”.
Anyone remember the Monty Python novel writing sketch? It was from the Matching Tie and Handkerchief album. I am such a nerd. Also, someone put it on YouTube.
At the Alternative Press Expo (or “APE”) I came across a comic called North World (which is also a webcomic). Its premise very superficially resembles Slime Story. It’s very different, but also very good so far. I may have to investigate webcomics more.
Also, Andy is back from Japan, and I’m very much looking forward to the Japanese RPG goodness he was kind enough to pick up for me, including Tsugihagi‘s doujins, Savage Science, Sukupani, Satasupe Remix+, Sword World 2.0, the new Yuuyake Koyake supplement, and a few other random things. Rest assured, I will post extensively about this stuff later.

So what are all the different JRPGs about?
I’ll post about them a lot more when I have the books in hand, but they include:
Sword World 2.0 (a very popular fantasy RPG)
Sukupani/School Days Panic (similar to Full Metal Panic)
Savage Science (manga pulp wackiness)
Satasupe Remix+ (“asian punk action”)
Hitotsuna Komichi (new supplement for Yuuyake Koyake)
