Posted: 14th September 2012 by Diamond Sutra in General, Translation

Hi all! If you’ve been around here for a while you may have seen my update a few weeks back regarding meeting up with him to organize some final changes (HERE). After the (awesomely put together) interview at Penny Arcade (HERE), I realized that I really wanted to hear more from my partner in crime […]

Give me your thoughts on Kickstarter Stretch Goals!

Posted: 19th August 2012 by Diamond Sutra in General

Because there’s currently a few threads on various forums where people are tossing out ideas, I’d love to basically turn this post into the place to post your ideas. I have a few ideas already! I want more, though! I cannot guarantee that your idea will be right for the project (in other words, I […]

Book Details, Go-Live, and Kickstarter Woes!

Posted: 6th August 2012 by Diamond Sutra in General, Rules, Translation

I am likely going to regret setting a =gasp= date on the release of something related to Tenra Bansho, being (ahem) 7 years into a “2-year” project. But only a few things left to do (contact the license-holders to make sure all is ready to go forward; prep some catch copy; take pictures; finish video) […]

A Crawl Away…

Posted: 25th July 2012 by Diamond Sutra in General, Translation

Interesting times! What’s the latest? * Three weekends ago, I had a mad Japanese RPG blowout at my house! The indomitable Matt Sanchez came up from Atlanta and we played the hell out of some Japanese language games, including another game from FEAR (the designers/publishers of Tenra)! * Two weekends ago, I went to DexCon in Morristown, […]

Done! But With More to Go…

Posted: 4th June 2012 by Diamond Sutra in General, Translation

Whew. Spent a lot of “up until 3AM” nights these past two weeks, but the 700+ pages of final layout editing are finished, done. The last steps involve tweaking the layout a bit to accommodate the fixes or make a few corrections, writing up last bits like the “back cover blurb”, shopping out the files to various […]

Back from Tokyo, and Back in the Saddle!

Posted: 7th May 2012 by Diamond Sutra in General, Translation

So… yeah. What happened? About five weeks ago, I was asked to go work in the Tokyo branch of my company for a few weeks, Next Week. So, four weeks ago I left for Japan (literally the day after my wife came back from Japan, having spent almost a month there!) for a month. Just […]

Allergies lend their way to more Editing!

Posted: 7th March 2012 by Diamond Sutra in General, Setting, Translation

I just meant to post a quick update over on my Google Plus page, next thing I know I’ve got a page of text that is ripe for reposting on the development blog! Anyway, I was sick yesterday; took the opportunity to push further in the Last Major Editing Run for Tenra Bansho. Got through […]

Holy Crap, When it Rains it Pours!

Posted: 11th February 2012 by Diamond Sutra in General, Translation

Major milestone hit tonight. Luke Crane is an indomitable weapon of layout and design. More on the specifics later. For now, I’m about to embark on the final, nightmarish editing run. As this proceeds and I come up for little gasps of air between editing and work, I’m finding some time here and there to put together […]
