what creative projects are you working on?

feels like we should probably have one of these in here since it doesn't appear we've had one of these as a community in ~creative in awhile--if ever.

i've spent the better portion of my day today working on a census form for the kryfona kingdom, which is one of the many countries in my fairly large worldbuilding effort. the first page actually came out really well, i think, so that was time well spent. i've considered making a post about some of its more intricate detail since i think some people on here might enjoy that, but for now i've opted to just make this general thread since i dunno how well it'd go as a discussion topic. maybe if y'all think it's worthy of one? idk.

anyways, what creative things have you been working on recently?

      for the most part, yes. capitalism is the main economic system in this world--but especially in the kingdom--because many of its alternatives are for the most part still budding or have to some extent fallen out of favor. there are quite a number of groups that seek to change that though, and i'll probably eventually make a post about all that sometime in the future since it's one of the neater things i've developed.

    I've been working on a minimal tabletop RPG system based on Fate Core, called Fleet. I recently finished a draft of the character sheet. It's half rules, half stats, easy to fold down the middle.

    I work as a creative, so I don't know if this counts.

    I'm closing in on finishing production on a documentary about criminal pathology. Two more interviews to do and then some more b-roll (including some drone footage, I'm excited to have my first project with some drone shots). I'm working as the cinematographer during production with a producer/director. For post, I'm taking on editing while she moves to writing. It's been a slow process because it's mostly grant funded, so money will dry up for months at a time.

    That's probably my favorite thing I'm working on at the moment.

    This is a bit more of a ~tech thing (but I code for fun and there's art involved) where I am making a self-hostable, open source, privacy focused, alternative to google analytics. that was a bit of a buzzword dump, but the whole thing is gonna be on github, only use 1 cookie (and can be turned off), and have a bunch of traffic visualizations thanks to D3 (https://d3js.org/)

    I'm doing some worldbuilding when I'm not busy and writing everything out as a sort of adventure guide/memoirs by one of the most famous adventurers in the world. I'm also working on a map for the world, but currently only have the outlines ready, so it's a fairly boring black & white map only so far.
