I'm too busy to do a proper blog entry today.
First because I'm going to be late for my dinner appointment wherein I'll finally get to watch the latest episode of Doctor Who.
Second, because I've spent the last day or so furiously working on the Dark Albion OSR setting-book I'm doing in collaboration with Dominique Crouzet (author of Fantastic Heroes & Witchery).
So in lieu of giving a lot of effort to today's entry, I'll just tell you that the last two things I've been working on, which will be in the Dark Albion book, are:
a) a detailed (about 9 page long) guide to currency, equipment, and wages; which is based on research to be more authentically reflective of a late medieval economy than (I think) any other OSR product out there!
b) a similarly-detailed (about 12 pages) chapter with rules on Noble House Management, with new mechanics for running one's properties, armies, and political influence. It will include rules for obtaining political favors and forming political alliances, for family fortunes, and a system for resolving the large-scale battles of the Rose War.
So let me know what you think about that, particularly if it's something that would make you more interested as an OSR gamer (or gamer in general) in getting Dark Albion.
And while you're at it, let me know what else you might wish would be in the book!
