First of all: I apologize for the radio silence. My real life job became insanely busy and I pretty much disappeared from the world for three months (to the point even my family was leaving "are you still alive??" voice messages and emails).
About 3 days ago, the official bladesinthedark.com website launched, bringing the SRD with it.
Work-life will continue to be insane until mid/late January, but this news has certainly reinvigorated my desire to return to KitD. I imagine my progress week-to-week will be small for the next month, but I plan on posting weekly updates again here to help keep myself on track and motivated.
The time "off" has allowed me to continue to test, design, and think through some mechanics. I've also been able to play and read several different TTRPGs, which has helped me get a better idea of how mechanics impact play, and how to tweak my own mechanics to illicit the intended experience. As a result, I will be making changes to the design from September which is why it isn't ready to release at this point.
