So obviously I've been writing new stories in 2022 (after a ~5-month break following November 2021, which was also episode 1100 and also the 30-year anniversary). My plan is to write for either 6 or 9 months in 2022, and then take another break to get the background materials in order. One side-effect of writing this much/long is that there are a number of things that perpetually need to be kept track of...thus the abundance of background material (e.g. the Rogues' Gallery, character stat sheets, new spells, new monsters, timelines...there's a lot). If I don't do this, I'll forget things and end up including contradictory elements in later stories. It's happened several times already, and I'm trying to prevent it from happening any more.
