I just wrote about commissioning some mancala-style abacuses. That helped lots of people, but was not a project for me. A second commission at the end of 2014 was.
My role-playing game, Nine Powers, is getting ready for some more purposeful sharing. It now has a Google+ page, which made me realize it needs at least one nice image.
So I commissioned Jereme Peabody to create an image of the setting's main location, Arlinac Town.
This was a surprisingly big project. We exchanged dozens of constructive e-mails discussing ideas and critiquing drafts. Jereme was wonderful to work with, and we're both quite happy with the result.
Perhaps once Summer begins I will have the time to start publicizing Nine Powers properly. Currently my life has too many other chores and errands.
