So I’m sitting here at Buffalo wild wings, using the WordPress and on my phone to do this post. Normally, I reserve such things for my computer as I find it much easier to type on the keyboard instead of swiping around and having autocorrect “fix” my mistakes.
But since my phone is always with me, this will make things easier in the frequency of posting.
I’ve probably mentioned this project in the past. It has gone through several iterations in the platform since it’s inception. Originally, it was to be a computer game. Now, in its current incarnation, it is a card/board game.

I know I’ve talked about this before. Designing a magic system. This is the biggest hurdle I’ve faced in writing Eldritch Adventures. Continue reading Magic Systems
While driving home from dinner, I was contemplating the latest entry into the D&D computer RPG arena, Sword Coast Legends. It does have pretty graphics, there is a lot of voice over work and the quests seem well-written. The DM tools appear to be pretty good too, though I’ve not delved too deeply into them yet. The biggest issue I have are the character classes.
