    I'm an independant games developer. I spend a lot of time roleplaying as well as playing a wide variety of other games (video/card/board/miniatures/etc). I am also making/have made a number of <small> games and non-game related projects.

    Oh, I also sing and play the trumpet.

  1. Over the past threeish weeks I've pushed myself hard, got what I needed done and crashed, had time to partially recover then repeated that. Currently in one of those crashes, I can hopefully slow down now though. Hurts a lot right now. (The worst bit is that at most I've been doing what a normal person would do in a part-time job and I didn't even approach being able to do that much for any length of time.)
  2. For no good reason I am suddenly highly amused by the mental image of Smaug singing the opening of "Part of your world" from the Little Mermaid. (In a deep dragony voice..) Look at this stuff, isn't it neat? Wouldn't you think my collection's complete? Wouldn't you think I'm the drag-on who has everything? Look at this trove, treasures untold. How many wonders can one city hold. Looking around here you'd think: "Sure, Smaug's got everything" I've got gold bars and mithril a plenty. I've got rubies and diamonds galore. You want golden statues? I've got twenty. But who cares? No big deal. I want MORE.
  3. (Firstly a side note: they're working on more Stargate! ) Time for another dwarvenforge build! =D So this one was actually built by a couple of my players (my family in this case, we finally got around to playing again while on holiday). Then I just altered what I had planned to fit the map It was an interesting experiment, one I shall do again in the future.
  4. Indeed Fool's ignore criticism, the average acknowledge criticism and the wise seek it.
  5. "um, never run with scissors?" Alternatively: "Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going, because they were holding on to something."
  6. *hugs* ^^What Delightful said. Extreme temps make it really really hard to do anything.
  7. Pain, mostly, lots of it. So pretty much the usual for me. I had a few days that weren't as bad then crashed again. If I get to that point I will absolutely seek help I should be better able to handle it again tomorrow once I've rested some more. It's very much a conscious decision to detach from the pain more than an inability to cope. I'll be ok, it just sucks a bit. (Thanks though )
  8. I know partially shutting down emotionally and detaching from the world is not a super healthy way of dealing with things, but sometimes I don't see a better option. It's not that it technically reduces the pain but it does reduce it's impact. If you aren't *feeling* much the pain just doesn't matter as much.
  9. Just for fun, another dwarven forge terrain build "the Gentle Spring Inn": (The last image is a gif so it'll play if you click on it to show the various layers )
  10. Up to date now as the final ep aired this week in Aus. Gotta say I very much enjoyed this season. ... And the stinger for season 5. I did not expect that, but I'm definitely on board for it!
  11. @Herowannabe Yay! Glad to hear it.
  12. Congrats! Ooh nice. Using lego is definitely cool imo Making maps out of it is time consuming because of the number of pieces, but very cool. I only really use a map for around 1 in 3 battles in my D&D campaign and only a subset of those use significant amounts of 3d terrain. It's great for the big set piece battles but for simpler battles it's much faster to just run int in theatre of the mind and you don't break the flow by spending 10-20 minutes building the map
  13. Ran a battle royale for my dnd players tonight. I had to push things forward faster than I would have liked in the second half as it was getting late, but it still went well and it came down to the wire on who won. Some very fortunate rolls and a major risk that paid off turned the course of the battle. I also took the opportunity to create the largest 3d terrain map I've done so far, using the majority of my dwarven forge. (My brother helped with designing and building it too which increased the quality further.) I'm quite happy with how it turned out. Here are some pics (Dog included for scale.) The bridge in the centre can change orientation to rest on either stone tower when certain levers were pulled. (Cue multiple "Pull the lever Kronk" jokes.)
  14. Yeah, I've been working on doing just that For this specific part the information is so scattered, convoluted, contradictory and illogical at times that I need to document and map it out just to get a mental picture working in the first place
  15. Working with established code bases that are virtually uncommented & undocumented is frustrating at best. When the client and previous developers have also had difficulty communicating, the structure of the database is bad as a result of the development process and nobody seems to have a clear idea on the process through which the data was changed into the form the app uses it all makes for a bit of a nightmare to sort out. I like the project, it's interesting and all but this particular aspect is really difficult and frustrating. Also, my head hurts just as much as always so even focusing on something simple and logical is a lot harder than it ought to be. (I'm "ok" and I'm handling it. It's just frustrating and painful.)
