Campaign Cartographer 3+ Is Coming Soon!

ProFantasy has been working hard for quite some time on their newest version of the world’s best mapping software: Campaign Cartographer 3+ (CC3+). Technically, it is still in beta testing. Realistically though, it is done and ready to roll. Existing users were offered an Early Adopter version (with a free upgrade to the final release) and the forums are a buzz with praise.

Let’s Try This Again

Here we are, many weeks later, and I still haven’t written anything. My last post ended saying that the drama was over. I wish! My spider bite healed just fine but my back pain became significantly worse and things went downhill from there.

The short version is that I believe I now have a handle on what is going on and think I have a treatment plan in place to keep things under control. I don’t want to jinx things and say I’m feeling better, but I do think I’m ready to give this another shot.

David A. Trampier has passed away.

Being Human

When I heard the premise for Being Human, my first thought was “What a stupid show”. Seriously, a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost sharing a flat in current-day Boston? This can’t be good. It wasn’t until the middle of the third season that I finally saw an episode. I couldn’t have been more surprised. Not only was it good, it was so good that it quickly became my favorite show.

Next and Previous Post Navigation

Yesterday, I wanted to read a series of articles I wrote some time ago on Designing Alternative Spell Systems. Finding them was no problem, but when I finished one it was rather cumbersome and unintuitive as to how to get to the next one. I want people to easily navigate to next/previous articles, so I took some time today to create some better controls.
