After 5 years of trying to write things that might interest gamers, I am slowing down. Not stopping!
I have thinned out the inventory, keeping only those special items that most folks seem to like.  
I will be adding more solo adventures to the store as I finish them.
The "Project" is still alive--just becoming 1 of many unfinished works I intend to complete.
I have always been appreciative of all the support and encouragement from this forum and its members. And I will continue to be a novice-collector, and hang around.
keep on collecting.

I am concentrating on finishing up all my unfinished little bits and pieces, and will do another Sea Maidens adventure.
Be patient, I'm not as fast as I used to be.

For the NTRPG con, thanks RC for the items you have written that have been donated over the years to the con!

Thork, hope it is a good decision for you.

I am going to concentrate on a project that has long been on my mind

Hey Rob, I'm sorry to hear you're closing up shop, but I'm glad you're going to work on something enjoyable! One question though...

Thork N Hammer wrote in Revamping the Store...:But have removed half of what was there.

Why pull down what's already there? Why not leave them available for newcomers to find in the future? There are a number of pointers to your stuff — forum threads, blog posts, reviews, list of materials compatible with particular editions, etc. — and it would be a shame if a newcomer saw a reference to something they'd like to check out, but were unable to grab it.

To put the significance of this into perspective:

NOBODY has created and published more medium/full-sized modules in the last 5 years than Thorkie. Nobody. Regardless of system. He has upwards of 25 to his credit, and various expansions on top of that.

I dare say (without doing the research to confirm) that nobody has EVER created and had published as many rpg modules in a five year period than Thorkie.

Adding love for Rob and his stuff here. Especially the Giants stuff and his lower level modules, which I'm not sure all made it to his site.

Being an Acaeum-newbie, I've never seen Thork's work... until now.  I've downloaded a couple of the items from Lulu and they look great.  I hope that I'll eventually achieve the quantity and quality of his work someday.

Thork, I've been as big a fan of your work since I started reading your adventures in 2011.  I'm sorry to hear you're getting away from producing your modules... I think they're very well done and enjoy them very much.  But, I am glad to know you're excited about the new project and wish you well with it!  I hope your publishing career will resume and we will have a chance to continue following your creations.  Good luck!

I have a few more known Thorkie modules in this list:
Welcome to Google Docs

... and that doesn't include any of his modules from mid-2012 and beyond.

I've been talking with Thork about a few items, and it turns out there is another POD item not on Dave's list:  Revenge of the Giants GX.  It's still in his lulu.com store.

There are several more items that were pdf only, but I don't have that list handy.

I just ordered a bunch! Don't know why you'd remove print on demand titles, though.
