So it is St. Patricks’s Day. Also known as St. Patty’s Day, St. Paddy’s Day, That day we drink green beer, etc. I normally would have posted yesterday, but I was driving across the wilderness that is Iowa. Continue reading St. Patrick’s Day
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.
So, I’ve gone through the file, included some new stuff, streamlined some old stuff, and all around spiffed up the place. The changelog for the .9 version is as follows:
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.

If you’ve not read any of Johnn’s tips, you should. A lot of useful information is sent out by Johnn as well as his readers. He also conducts various online classes to improve your game.
I’ve posted two new items to DTRPG.com. The first is the Astra Imperia 2.0 playtest and the second is a bundle of both the Astra Imperia 2.0 and Via Astrum playtests. The bundle price is $1.50 and everyone who purchases the bundle (or playtests separately) receives $1 off of each title (or the title purchased).
I’ve released Via Astrum into playtesting. It is available on DTPRG.com for $1. I know, why should you pay for a playtest game? The funds collected from this will be used for art assets. It won’t be much in the way of purchasing art, but it does help.
I’ve decided that for world building for Eldritch Adventures I am going to run a game. This game will have the players taking part as deities of the world. They take turns adding features to the world and building it up.
Over the next few days, I’ll be posting some character write ups in Eldritch Adventures and Via Astrum. The first two characters will be for Eldritch Adventures and are characters of mine originally in D&D. The first is Farsi Demotaka, a kensai; and the second is Arthur, a mage forced to hide his talents due to magic being outlawed in his home country.
Following this will be my take on some iconic science-fiction characters. To keep any potential copyright arguments at bay, the characters will be referred to by their archetype rather than name. I am sure that they can be figured out fairly easily.
