You know, for all the silly things, the things that aren’t fantasy adventures to the realms beyond, because that is the serious stuff.
Probably not many updates next week (or perhaps I go nuts with the camera and there’s tons, who knows?).
Either way I should have an interesting lore bit up tomorrow.
Also happy Batman-Eve
Ok. So. Balancing an RPG is insane. Let me tell you.
So. I have to figure out how much XP everything should cost so that you gain it at a fair and regular pace. Once I figure out what seems like a good pace I have to start factoring how much starting XP to give players and what benefits they should get based on starting elemental race and class. Should they even get starting benefits? I’ve considered having players start classless and just have to learn as they go.
Then comes monsters and encounters. How lethal should things be? What kind of skills and abilities do monsters have? How do I manage status effects and special powers? Should monsters have features players could never remotely obtain (answer: yes)? How much damage do things do? How much health should players start with as a result of this?
The list goes on.
Ultimately, I persevere and I’ll figure it out. I have two more days of work and then I can really dig down into this. I’ll keep you all posted.
Me upon reaching 10 followers. I am the cat.
In celebration for this we will be having our normally scheduled vlog. Only this time it will be about 2 parts long with me rambling about the game mechanics of this wonderful little mess. How wonderful.
I realized with this project that I’m taking some of what I say for granted because a lot of I’ve said so far is rehashing things I’ve already told to some of my closer friends.
Now though, I’m actually being followed by people I don’t know and it’s genuinely awesome to see people interested in this project. So I’m doing at least 1 bonus vlog this week to talk about some core aspects of the game, possibly even some game mechanics now, because remember everyone, this isn’t a fiction writing wall, this is an actual game with rule and stuff that I’m going to have to explain at some point.
Thank you all for staying tuned, I’ll have a vlog up later today.
Already a week or two and I’ve gotten more fan art and followers than I’d have expected in a month. You people are awesome. Soon some of you will have been following long enough that you can actually make comments, boy then we’ll have some real fun going on won’t we?
Hey, I’m not 100% sure how we do polls or things like that on Tumblr. I’m gonna start vlogs on the basic gists of the 6 elemental domains next week. I’d like to know which you all are most interested to hear about. So, which of the following would you like to hear about?
Send a message, a comment, not really sure what but just get a hold of me somehow so I know what you people want to hear about next. Thanks.
I’m still trying to find a setting that doesn’t murder the picture aspect ratio when I upload fan art. So pardon me while I goof around with different themes and try to make things look good. Any recommendations?
Added my Twitter feed to my Tumblr so now I can post while I post.
