Scene: I am standing on a high mountain, fist shaking in the air. I let out a mighty shout of anger "DAMN YOU LOUIS PORTER!!! DO NOT TOUCH MY STAT BLOCKS!!!" In clear defiance, I shake harder, increasing the menacing feel of the situation.

This was how I felt last night after my chat with Louis who is a known hater of italics. After the dismal reviews of Sanguine Covenant and Scythians due to editing issues, I had someone (Linda) look at my prose again to clean it up and make sure the document is clean and good. Next products will be much better, pride has been hurt and that demands a response.

One of the points the reviewer pointed out (which surprised me) was that there were "rogue uppercase "D"s throughout the spell lists". WTF I said, those were clearly placed in Superior case to mark them as Domain spells. I looked at my document, they seemed pretty obvious. I looked at the PDF. ARGH! NO! The reviewer was right! Now I look like a fool!

I grit my teeth and clench my fist as my blood pressure keeps rising. A barely audible growl leaves my throat.

I need to get Louis to accept italics and the formatting of Pathfinder stat blocks! But he's a tough nut to crack.

The echo returns the sound of my voice. My fist angrily shakes in the air as the echo slowly dies off, as if the echo itself was afraid of the waving fist.


  1. Good luck and fight the good fight!

  2. Thanks for the mention, JP. Anybody else want me to rip their work apart? I promise to leave the italics...

  3. Stop your crying!!!! Italics are for sissies!
