Freeform Roleplaying

July 11, 2011


Wow. It’s been a long time since I’ve last posted. This is mainly due to the fact that my internet at home is out, and I didn’t really feel like typing a post on a cell phone. Once I realized I could use the computers at the library to post, it was just pure laziness. […]

Freehand Comix 1: Quotations and misses thereof

March 15, 2011


I was looking about in a pictures folder I don’t use anymore, and I found the little gem below (well, It’s a gem to me, at least). I threw it together in Paint.NET one afternoon, and titled it “Freehand Comix” because I had decided to use the freehand to draw this one, lending the characters […]

yWriter5 – Novel composition software

March 10, 2011


For years, I’ve been trying to write a full-length novel. I’ve written the beginnings of around three, all abandoned before completion. I recently realized that my real problem is disorganization.

TD&TD – An Update

February 24, 2011


To any who read and liked the RPG I posted yesterday (look at me, thinking people actually read this blog), you will be happy to know I am working on a fuller description of the rules. It will include rules for equipment, some clarifications and exceptions, a mini-bestiary, a neato “Mark” system (you’ll see), the […]

The Dead and The Darkened – My 1-hour RPG

February 23, 2011


Today I was reading a discussion page here in which the thread starter challenged others on the site to create an entire RPG in 365 seconds (about six minutes). Despite this ridiculous time frame, several people commented with rules for complete, working RPGs, some of which I would actually consider playing. “Ha!” I said to […]
