I sent off to a friend of mine, who teaches a creative writing class, the first two chapters of a D&D novel that I have been working on. The word count is a little over 5500, and 14 pages so far. It is based on the old Isle of Dread adventure for Basic D&D. I bought the adventure when it came out, and still have my copy. To simplify working with it, I also bought the PDF file for it. She likes it and wants to know when she can see more of it. I will need to put my D&D writer's hat back on and get back to work. She says there are a few typos to be fixed, which makes sense. I have a hard time spotting those, as looking over my blog writing shows. Still, it is good news, and I will have to see what develops.

I also have gotten back to work on the Piper-Norton Out Rim Sector, specifically the Sword sub-sector. I am working on trading planets for El Paso, as I have a Free Trader looking for some cargo, after getting an education on why you do some research before heading for a planet. The captain did not quite loose his shirt, but came close. He has a Jump-3 ship, so can reach 3 planets directly from El Paso, and with a second Jump-3, can reach four more. So it is a case of figuring out what might those planets be interested in, and what cargo is waiting at El Paso for shipment to any of the planets. El Paso does have a regular cargo liner arriving every month from New Texas. That is a Hyperdrive-2 ship, covering a parsec a week, and spending a week on El Paso dropping off and collecting cargo. Two ships alternate on the New Texas-El Paso run, so El Paso has reliable monthly service. The planets in the Out Rim sector are a bit spread out, and ships capable of Jump-3 are more your standard Jump Drive Free Trader. There are also Hyperdrive-1, a parsec a month, and Hyperdrive-2, a parsec a week, Free Traders. Hyperdrive-1 ships are pretty cheap, and cover a lot of the lower population planets, off which there are plenty in the sector. Hyperdrive-2 and Jump Drive ships supply most of the regular commercial traffic between the larger population planets.
