Announcing Haven Goodman

Post by goodmangames » Fri Feb 17, 2012 8:07 am

I'm pleased to announce the recent limited-edition release of Haven Goodman, born at 6 lbs. 14 ounces and available in an exclusive print run of one copy! Haven is embarking on a 21-year internship program to prepare him for a future career at Goodman Games. His playtesting assignment starts tomorrow with our new RPG-in-development, "Bottles & Bottoms." So far there are lots of bottles, that's for sure. :)

To answer some of the other questions on the boards - DCC RPG is still under development and tracking well for April-ish. I'm pretty focused on two things: the layout and the baby. Which means I'm not posting a lot here but I am keeping things moving along. Only one more chapter plus the appendices to lay out - it's moving!

In the meantime, enjoy the latest art preview: Peter Mullen at http://www.goodman-games.com/5070artpreviewmullen.html

Congratulations! If he's your first child, welcome to the veeeeery steep learning curve. And goodbye to sleep for....a couple of years. :shock: Looks like DCC RPG will get released just in the nick of time. But I've also got to say, that all the clichés will now be seen as true; These will be the best years of your life and he'll put your whole life into perspective. I couldn't imagine life without my two daughters. So congratulations again!

Congratulations! It won't be long before Haven will be mercilessly leading your characters into pit traps from behind the judge's screen, so enjoy this time!

How wonderful! From my experience having a baby, I wouldn't blame you if DDC RPG didn't come out until 2013! :lol: Talk about a 24/7 job. In the first few months after my daughter was born, I literally sometimes didn't know if it was a.m. or p.m.

Grats, Mr. Goodman! :D
You could always have the baby do an internship in a revamped for DCC RPG Castle Whiterock! <--- was that too subtle a hint? :wink:

Two years of no sleep? No way. I have 4 kids and trust me it doesn't take nearly that long to get them to sleep through the night.

Congrats! Very cute baby.

That's most excellent news, which, btw trumps anything DCC related, though good to hear it's still on track.

Congratulations to you and the Mrs. and a hardy "Welcome" to Haven!

Wow, I am only now seeing this.
Congrats to the both of you for producing such a marvellous specimen. This also finally answers the question: does Mr. Goodman have any other hobbies? :D :wink:
