Lighthouse System is Coming
This issue isn’t going to follow the normal format, because it’s been an odd week. We had originally planned to release the all-new edition of the Lighthouse System on 1 February. Last Monday, however, DriveThruRPG did a server migration. It was only supposed to last 12 hours, but as of this writing they’re still dealing with gremlins. On Wednesday we decided to push the release back to 8 February, to give them time to sort these issues out. That was clearly the right call, because on Friday several publishers we stating that they were having trouble creating new product listing and uploading files.
We have a slew of blog posts that support the Lighthouse System and the settings we’ve created for it. Those were also scheduled for this weekend, and also got pushed back to accommodate the launch. That’s why there was no new content this week. We could have rushed to put something together for the blog, but decided to wait.
The new edition of Lighthouse is too important to us to mess around. It’s the foundation of what we’re going to be doing for the rest of 2019 and into 2020. We’re planning to release a new game every single month, all built on that system. There are three separate settings in the pipeline, and we’ll be exploring different facets of those. We’re excited to show you the first playsets, which combine an adventure, pregenerated characters, and as much system and setting as you need to play.
