A Major Announcement

I have a major announcement regarding the future of my writing and gaming projects.

As of this month, and after decades devoted to it, I have joined “The Great Resignation” and officially retired from my day job to become a full-time author and IP creator-entrepreneur. Andarian Publishing is now a full-time business.

Here’s what that will mean for the future of the Sanctum of the Archmage novels and games. Of (I hope) particular interest to the NWN Vault community:

  • **Sanctum as NWN:EE Curated Content. I’ve been invited (and agreed) to include my Sanctum of the Archmage modules in NWN:EE’s curated content program

  • Sanctum 3 is Now Officially Back in Development. With the full title Sanctum of the Archmage: The Miracle Worker, the third and fourth modules (Mission to Rayche and Treason) will finally continue the game saga from the end of chapter 2: The Quest .



That’s a brave and at times scary step to take. All the best of success both with your writing projects - and the house move!


How awesome is that!

I hope your move goes smoothly and look forward to seeing what you create!

Thanks to Niv, Dave, and everyone else for their kind words and wishes!

And thanks to everyone for their patience since my announcement! It turns out that pivoting your entire life takes an awful lot of time, effort, and preparation, even if the pivot is in the direction of eventually having more time to work on your own projects. I’m making progress, though, and should have some follow-up news soon regarding my plans for the Sanctum modules.

In the meantime, for anyone who’s interested in what I’ve been up to regarding that “pivot planning,” I’ve posted a copy of my latest email newsletter online at the link below. At lot of it’s about my book publishing plans, which are the first thing I’ve had to try to put in place, but there are what I think are a couple of other interesting tidbits in it as well.

I hope it all works out. Creative content can be as stressful to generate as a day job can be.
