Greetings, Wingnuts and Citizens! Time for the Weekly WCRPG Update.

I wound up having a pretty tough week this past week owing to events in real life; on Tuesday, I came down with a stomach bug that caused me to have to leave work early and spend the day resting, and then I already had events scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday that required me to watch one or more of my children during the day. So, I only had two working days this past week, on Monday and Friday. Both days were spent on the ongoing translation work of the prologue in Chapter 2.2 of the Elegy campaign. Monday was actually fairly productive, with sixteen blocks of text fully translated on that day alone and one partial block. In fairness, these were smaller blocks of text, but then again I did say that was what I planned to do in last week's update. Friday saw partial translations of another seven blocks of text. A total of four new terms were added to the Kilrathi lexicon from this week's translations with 22 terms refurbished, corresponding to 35 reverse terms. Another nine "unofficial" terms were generated over the week, and I still need terms for thirteen more reverse words (words including 'moot', 'punish', 'impertinence' and 'resolve'). As of this morning a total of eight-five blocks of text have been translated in Chapter 2.2's prologue with 8 translations in progress. Another 63 blocks of text have completed syntactic reviews.

Since I largely lost last week, my Plan for this week is a recycled one: continue the translation effort in Chapter 2.2. I'm past the halfway mark on the translation now and this week looks to be less busy, so I'm hopeful that I can report more substantial progress at the tail end of the week. I'd like to at least get out of the part of the conversation where the group is reluctantly electing ship's officers before the week is over, which I think I can do if I don't run into the need to generate too many terms. Since I apparently forgot to add my litany about Chapter 2.3 last week, I'll add it again this week - I need to finish building the Demon's Eye base statistics, begin mocking up battle maps, and slice the Chapter's plot some more. Chapter 2.2's prologue is taking much longer than I had originally anticipated, but hopefully I can make more substantial progress this week and be able to turn my attention to the next Chapter soon.

Well, that's all I've got for this update. The next scheduled update will post to the WCRPG site and CIC forums sometime between 11-14Z on Monday, October 24th. Y'all have a pleasant week.
