To cage the bat?

What is the goal of my role?

I'm seeking to provide entertainment for both you and I.

I'm building a web of stories as a story, and having my fun along the way because that's the deal:  Everyone gets to be a part of the story, me especially.

(S)He who runs the game, sets the tone and plays the role of the world, but the world has to be consistent and make sense.

In short, it may be bullshit, but it's my bullshit, and it's consistent.

Polished Turds.

DM bullshit is as time honoured as player fuckery and as long as ying and yang chase one another, so to...

Memory Holes

Saturday, March 10, 2018 - 19:49

While the episodes are all indexed and filed, I don't care enough to go trawling them to find legitimacy of what I claim.

There were a few who remained, by my recollection; and those folks cleaned up the carnage left behind.

It's either that or I mill the story into an iralite resurrection bit akin to Vanes betrothed coming back like a light weight Ghostbusters opera.

 

Five mines.. four mines.. seven mines.. we have all this recorded and as has been proven in the past, it's hit or miss who's right until we look.  Memory is driven by committee (ahem, democracy)...

It's not perfect, but I found a tool which speeds up map creation to literally painting mountains and adding text.  Can't ask for better.  Here it is:

Some of the outlying towns have descriptions, but I don't believe any of them are entered in the wiki.

KLSMC is Ketterrog, Lagos, Summerhill Mining Consortium.

You'll note the Black Mountains to the north west, the mines stretching along the 'road to the west' (the map maker app had no roads).

Sorleosserr means South Hills.

Falls Point is named for the Fall...

D&D Beyond Review

Sunday, March 4, 2018 - 15:22

I hadn't done an article in a while and I figured I should, given I've been neglecting my stream in favour of my recent project turned mild life obsession.

I recently spent over $200 on D&D Beyond so that we, that is me and the gang, could have access to the wonderous power of digital reference!

March 12th marks the year anniversary of D&D Beyond's release and I wanted to get this in while I had the time to write it.

Making flatscreen and projector tabletop better!

The Dynamic Maps Game Engine

A week ago I was inspired by living battlemaps, animated top down maps rendered in CG for use in tabletop games played with a projector or upon flatscreen television.

I set to work, obsessing over a piece of software and developing it to the point it is now.  I present, the DMGE, the Dynamic Maps Game Engine: http://dmge.digitalforge.ca

I enjoyed working on this a lot, and felt a passion in developing it that I hadn't felt in a long time.

Now, I want to take it to next level and I've established a...
