Grimmerspace

 


Back before COVID, there was a wonderful KS campaign for a new RPG setting called Grimmerspace. This caught my attention first with the endorsement of actor Sean Astin, but also I have been looking for new setting to help broaden my role playing experience. I felt that this campaign was going to do that for me.


Unfortunately, I feel that so many things have been stacked against this campaign between COVID related issues on top of the fact that it seems that the people who were bringing this to life didn't have anything completed. Sure they had mock-ups of the books in order to give potential backers a sense of what they were investing their money towards, but that seems like it was just smoke & mirrors.


I'll be honest. I prefer backing campaigns that have most of their work already completed. I'll admit that I do occasionally back campaigns from Onyx Path, and they typically take a long time to be fulfilled; but they also have a proven track record of actually delivering on-time product. Also, I still have a fondness for World of Darkness.


Every update they provide seems to deliver not much actual information, and when asked about when we should realistically expect product to be delivered (I always back campaigns for a physical copy of whatever or just getting PDF's), and am told "check this" or "check that" and never given a direct response for an ETA.


The original delivery estimate was July 2020. As of the writing of this, it is now June 2023 and I still do not have what I paid for. I'm trying to be patient, but after almost 3 years of waiting, my patience is wearing thin.


Once this campaign has been delivered, I hope to be able to write an addendum to this to advise how I feel about the completed product I waiting for so long to receive and finally answer the burning quest: Was it worth it?




Update


As loyal followers of this blog know, I haven't posted any new reviews in quite some time. I have been left creatively drained ever since COVID started and have not felt the desire to write much of anything. This has affected me in other aspects of my life as well... but I digress.


My last post to this blog was about going to JoeFest in Augusta, GA in June; and (at the time of writing this) this is next weekend. I have never travelled so far for an event, and I am not only excited, but also a huge ball of anxiety.


Leading-up to JoeFest, I am starting to feel more motivated to get back into writing reviews, so I have made a promise to myself and now to all of you.


By the end of June, I will get back into the rhythm of posting reviews on a regular basis. I do this for myself, for all my followers and in hopes of continuing my ability to be able to go to events such as Rose City Comic Con and cover the event as part of the media/press.


I am motivated. I will be able to designate myself the time to actually put this promise to action. I also have an ever-growing supply of trades and graphic novels to read and review.


I'm sorry that it has taken me so long to get to this point. I know that the COVID situation has affected everyone in different ways. Thank you for staying with me and keep your eyes on this blog and feel free to follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
