Submitted by Dusty on Fri, 10/22/2010 - 13:04

I know I never really post here, but this November is will be different. I'm participating in NaNoWriMo for the third time and this year I'm planning on showing everything. Everyday (Or most of them) I will be posting all my writing to my blog for the entire world to see.

My NaNoWriMo profile is there for anyone interested in my initial idea and I will be keeping an up to date word count there.

I know I mentioned on Facebook that I would make a post a while ago. Alas that didn't happen and I never got around to it until now. On the plus side I am now using MarsEdit 3.

Underground cities which are connected by a subway system. With huge stretches of uninhabitable land between cities the only way to get between them is the ancient subway system. Small stores have been constructed around the stations selling everything a tired traveler might need and anything an eager visitor could imagine.

Untold Stories

Submitted by Dusty on Mon, 04/12/2010 - 10:53

During my daily life I occasionally see something interesting that inspires the seeds of a story inside me. Some of these seeds catch hold inside me and begin to grow into a tree of ideas. Some of them I decide to turn into stories or use in a roleplaying game that I am playing. Others sit in my mind or in a small note on my computer. Those are the ones I want to share, the Untold Stories.

Arkham Horror Session - Glaaki & Ghroth

Submitted by Dusty on Sat, 03/27/2010 - 01:58

It was Glaaki and Ghroth vs the Bounty Hunter, the Soldier, the Shaman, and the Gravedigger. I was playing with Innsmouth, Kingsport, and Dunwich so I knew from the beginning I know that I wouldn't have much time to get my six seals. I suspected that I would only have around 9 turn because I expected a gate to open almost every turn. That turned out to be about right, I managed to last 10 turns before Glaaki finally woke up.

Fallout 3 Hacking Mini-Game

Submitted by Dusty on Tue, 03/02/2010 - 23:32

Due to a friend's request I decided to create a hacking mini-game which works the same way as it does in Fallout 3. So I spent a few hours today throwing together an implementation of it using HTML and Javascript. It is currently working quite well, although I plan on adding a more difficult version which uses longer words.

Please enjoy!

The Monster Files

Submitted by Dusty on Fri, 02/26/2010 - 12:21

Much like how people hack Spirit of the Century and call it Spirit of the _______, I am planning on hacking The Dresden Files and calling it The Monster Files. I've been really excited about the Dresden Files RPG and I am already planning what I want to do with it when it is released.

Here is what I currently have decided about The Monster Files.

World Building

I still don't know most of the city creation rules however one of the things I plan on doing for my game is to not only create the city but to also decided how the world works.

What I am learning from my current campaign (part II)

Submitted by Dusty on Wed, 02/24/2010 - 16:40

I wasn't planning a second part to this, but I had another session of Umwandeln Herz: Umbra and after reflecting on the session I had a few things I wanted to say about it.

Let the players roll for it

There was a point in the story where the players were trying to get past a man with a gun and a bunch of people controlled by a vampire. The man was on orders from the vampire to only let one of them through and refused to let the rest of the players through.
