Quick Friday posts!
- For all my talk, I didn't paint this week. I plead busy-ness. I'll attempt to get back to it this weekend or the next week.
- You can buy the Blog of Holding Random Dungeon Poster (again.) I do need to talk to Vic about Felltower stuff.
- The Nordlond Bestiary and Enemies Book funded. I'm hopeful it can get much, much bigger.
- Delta looks at "sweep" attacks. I like the multiple attacks vs. weak foes approach, but I think it works better in abstract systems like D&D and AD&D. On a tactical map - such as AD&D video games (Pool of Radiance, say) - it's harder to explain. But a 6th level fighting trashing six weak opponents in a one-minute round? Easily visualized. Hard to do it in a 5-second round where facing and tactical position matters.
- I did some character work for Felltower this week - more details on Sunday!
- Thanks to Acoup for linking to this - I wouldn't have seen it otherwise. I'm really interested in the logistical underpinnings of conflict. Too much Eastern Front wargaming, I guess.
