Today's meeting is extremely quiet. The sick count is down to three, but one of those out is Chaney, so the meeting is pretty low-key and quiet. Really, except for Craig refusing to learn how to use the phone and Rich's suggestion that we can do a find-and-replace to switch "goblin" with "vampire," the meeting goes right into whipping around the table:
John: Wrapping up COCD: Underworld and Roll II, poking at our new organizational software Hansoft and preparing for his new LJ feature starting this Thursday. I suggest "Chambers of Love" for the column title.
Brian: Bunch of ads, wrapping up a poster for Exalted, art-directing Roll II and some other marketing stuff.
Joe: Very pleased with the printer's proof of Lords over the Damned, all of Gangrel in and into editor hands tonight, Mekhet mostly in, Nosferatu is slightly delayed but still on course and a bunch of writers and developers hired for 08 and 09.
Craig: Working on the last bits of Daeva before sending it off to proof and art directing Gangrel.
Ethan: Working on Equinox Road and learning Hansoft, bible for a new game to be done by tonight and some contracts for another Changeling book.
Aileen: Finishing Tribes of the Moon and some ads for Kelley before attempting to install Windows and Hansoft on her Mac. A Lords of Summer proof may materialize at the end of the week.
Russell: Iceland bound, but before he goes he'll be working on contracting some writers for the EVE RPG and deciding which RPG is the best to run for drunken vikings.
Chaney: From his email: awaiting card proofs for Twilight Rebellion, awaiting final okay on Innocents, in the middle of dividing up art notes for Dogs of War and compiling an artist list for Hunter.
Eddy: Finished redlines on an SAS and sent those back to the writer this weekend. This week is redlining two Hunter quickstarts, as well as some revision work on Lines of Power and Scion Companion (Pt. 1).
Bax: Polishing up some work on the Hunter quickstarts and updating Hansoft with all of our 08 and 09 projects. I tried to convince him to write my eQuaterly stuff for me, but he didn't understand the question.
the matt: QEN text finally in for layout, Hansoft and Big Board cleanup, meetings and proofs galore, and working on a recruitement panel for HR.
Jess: Finishing up some promotional material before diving into The Harvesters and business cards.
Kelley: Finishing up text on the latest Exalted promotional campaign, working with her boss on going over the Hunter promotional campaign and writing up ads for Aileen.
Aaron: He's doing some stuff. I'd repeat it, but since everyone in Operations has their own knife, it's probably safer if I didn't.
Intern Jason: Cranked out quickstart stuff over the weekend, revising the SAS manuscript I redlined for him and working on some stuff for the Scion Companion, as well as some busy work Russell has him doing.
Intern Priscilla: waiting on the proofs for the eQuarterly before diving back into the image database and some business cards.
Rich: In New York with Aaron next Monday, continuing their unending streak of sharing hotel rooms.
Bill Bridges: Stops by to say "hi."
Today's Reason to Drink: February 11th, 1531 - Henry VIII is recognized as the head of the Church of England. And after a marathon run of the first season of The Tudors on DVD while high on cold medication, I think this is really neat.
