Note: This is an announcement post. There will not be much talk of actual game play. Cheers!
I’ve had so much fun so far writing this series and playing this game. I honestly feel really connected to the community of the game and am really grateful to be a part of it. I haven’t felt this way in a long time. I’ve been writing/reviewing games for a very long time now it seems and this one has brought me the most joy inside and outside of the game, by far! Now, we are in part nine of the series and I have had many people ask me “How long will this continue?” I know I have been kind of vague and give the same answer over and over. I will give you a more clear answer in this post. This will be huge for the blog and myself. Just keep reading for that announcement to appear, it won’t be long.
I’ve done a lot of thinking over these past couple of blogs and how this series is really shaping up. I’ve done a ton of writing and have put a ton of work into this series inside and outside of the game. The Gaming Gospel will be solely focusing on The Black Death going forward. The next question you would be asking me is: Why? I have spoken about the amount of faith I have in this game and the team behind it. The series will continue and the website for now will be focusing on TBD. There are more reasons of course, which I will say later on in this post and future ones.
So what does this exactly mean for the future? As many readers already know I have always been a variety writer. I’ve done a ton of series, multiple games at a time. It will be different just doing one game and it will work out. I have a ton of content planned besides the regular blogs and streams. That will also be coming in the very near future. All will be revealed in time, I promise you all. This will be a new experience for you as well for myself. A lot of time and thought went into this, I am going into this very prepared.
Here is another awesome thing that I will be doing! Every three months I will be giving a copy of The Black Death away. I have not yet decided how I will be giving these away, but they will be given away somehow! I’m super excited to be doing this and I hope it will be able to bring new people into the game. That is the whole point of all of this, don’t forget that! I will be announcing the dates and everything for the giveaways in January so please, stay tuned for that! It’s going to be exciting.
Instead of just the normal “Survive The Plague…” posts we will be having other types of content coming out for TBD. Giveaways, events, and stories. I will be making up characters and background stories for them as they go through the world of Mercia. It’s something that I think will be a lot of fun more myself and hopefully fun for you all to read. I have that somewhat outlined and hopefully that will come sooner rather than later. The main focus will still remain the “Survive The Plague…” series though. That is going nowhere and will remain the driving force.
There will be other things coming as well. Individual posts about each class and each new update the game has. Each patch I will be doing an overview just like I did for patch 0.11. There will be upcoming blogs about each class and what they do and how they play. I will also be taking ideas for what you would like to see. Anything TBD related and you would like to see please send me a tweet or leave a comment on this post. I will also be lurking on the TBD Discord as well.
There is a lot of cool things coming to the blog and with each new phase I will announce it on Twitter or Discord before anything happens on the site. Giveaways, events, etc. Everything is pretty much a WIP until everything gets a steady date and all the content I want to do is 100% what I want to happen. I’m not trying to be too picky but I want to publish the best content I can for TBD.
I apologize for the rambling. The usual will return in part ten I promise and it will be a good one.
So let’s just recap before I end this post and start working on part ten!
The Gaming Gospel will be focusing on The Black Death from now on! We will be doing a giveaway every three months. The first giveaway will be in January and will follow every three months after. The giveaway will always include a copy of a game and some in-game goodies as well!
We will also be doing in-game and out of game events that go along with The Black Death. Those details will come later! This is still a WIP and will probably be starting in the new year like the giveaway!
There will be a lot more content coming along besides the usual series. All of those details are yet to come and will be coming in another announcement post. If you would like to see something specific please let me know and I will see what I can do. I’m going to do everything I can to make the best content for The Black Death. I will be doing a lot of community involvement as well. Discord, forums, Twitter, you can find me on there to contact me directly as well as leaving a comment on these posts!
