It's amazing and I'm as in awe of her work ethic as I can be. She could take some little idea I had and turn it into something big and awesome and that's just super cool.
I'm thrilled to have been a part, but always remember, I'm a sliver, she's the real deal.
If they ever want me to do more, I'm more than happy to, but I know that the dance card's filled up for a while. That said, come the new year, I might start doing some Infiniverse stuff, toss some of my ideas onto a page, but I'd much rather give 'em to the crew upstairs.
As a bonus, the research I was doing added a dozen books to my library... some good, some AWESOME, and some … well, every library's got some stinkers. Protip! 90% of books about the Templars are awful things. Finding actual good *scholars* who delve into it and pull the facts from the myth? SUPER rare but real treasures. I can't say enough good things about Barbara Frale on this front and recommend her book, "The Templars: The secret History Revealed" enough.
But more on recommended reading later.
Speaking for myself, I love the fact that real world history is influencing what's coming out (though I reserve the right to use Baphomet as a plot point in my Torg game ). And if surplus content makes its way on to the Infiniverse, I'll snap it up for sure
Speaking not just for myself i'm sure - I am in awe of Deanna's productivity. Writing high quality stuff on these deadlines is a very rare skill.
