  1. adventurer commandments

    This is written for the benefit of all dungeon style adventurers. It is somewhat tongue in cheek and old school in style but should be of benefit to dungeoners. Please feel free to add to the list.
    Commandments for adventurers
    1. You shall minimize losses by only keeping your distance from an unopened chest or door till the rogue is done.
    2. You shall move to the side of the rogue after he is successful to ensure that he doesn’t get the best part of the treasure, ...
  2. Tempting FATE: Skills

    In this installment, as it is, we're dealing with skills and how they relate to both FATE and Star Wars. What Saga Edition did for the property, in this regard, I really like - a nice, tight skill list (compared to other d20 games of its era), and no skill points to fiddle with. It's also here that I'm deviating some from Kiero's adaption.

  3. Star Wars : The Force Unleashed, Ultimate Sith Edition PC

    by , 12-09-2009 at 03:00 PM (Random musings of an insane writer)
    The Force Unleashed : Ultimate Sith Edition for the PC. The graphics are spectacular, but that's to be expected because this is basically a port of the XBox 360 version. There are some performance issues that I should note, I had to reduce resolution(I don't mind all that much as long as it runs smooth)due to the hefty demands this game makes on a dual core system. Granted, I play on a laptop, but its all I gots for now and I'm not looking to build a desktop right now. The system specs for the game ...

  4. English for RPGs – Part 11

    On the stylistic side, I've found another word that I dislike on principle. Proverbial. If you're going to trot out the hoary old chestnuts, there's no need to announce, “Look! A cliche!” (This probably wouldn't have bothered me as much if it hadn't been used three times in two pages. Any word that is obviously an author's pet can become quickly annoying.)

    Damn typo's in my last post. Ah well. So I just finished another gig that netted me around 500 bucks. Most of which goes to various bills. At least that takes care of all my bills this month, and early on too. I'm bidding on a few open projects that are smaller, so's I can has spending cash.

    It's finals week. Blargh. Finished with two of three finals. Last one is tomorrow night. Business 101 final. So far, the exams haven't been too bad in this class, just freakin' long. I hate 100 ...
