    Design Diary Oct 2, 2019 - "The Digital Design Diary of a Middle School Freak

    This week's Design Diary is going to be a little bit of a change of pace. I had the opportunity this weekend to sit down and play with the Diary of a Middle School Freak game that I've been working on with my kids. And I wanted to talk a little bit about that.

    Dungeon Craft, and how Professor Dungeon Master sets up new players to play D&D

    Kirby's Kids

    Design Diary Sept 24, 2019 - "Ultimate Dungeon Terrain?"

    Design Diary Sept 24, 2019 - "Ultimate Dungeon Terrain?"

    For as long as I've had my Patreon I've been very focused on creating papercraft terrain and encounter maps, so much so that rarely was I making any 3-D terrain. And if I was making 3-D terrain it was mostly stuff that was papercraft.—paper buildings or trying to find new ways to create elevations using cardstock and print and paste techniques,  I don't know that I was paying attention to scale. I wasn't necessarily paying attention to the playability of some of these maps. I was just it's just laying stuff down and trying to imagine how characters and players would interact with the area and then I also discovered DungeonCraft, Professor Dungeon Master and his Ultimate Dungeon Terrain, I started working in a 3-D medium again and rewatching the old 60s Batman TV show and that really upped my 2-D terrain game!

    Have a great week.

    See you on the other side.

    Design Diary Sept 10, 2019 - "Creative Breakthrough"

    Design Diary Sept 10, 2019 - "Creative Breakthrough"

    How do you deal with creative block?
    Writer's block, artist's block, Is there such a thing as "terrain crafter's block"?
    For several months now I feel like I've been floundering. I know some part of that is just analysis paralysis or just having way too many things to choose from.
    There's this point at which I tend to shut down if there are way too many options are way too many things going on. It's like going to a new restaurant and looking at a menu and you want everything on the menu, and you just don't know what to choose. This can be very frustrating for me, as a creator.
    I had a creative breakthrough though, and while it's not the direction I originally wanted to go in,  it' is a direction that is working. When I'm able to get past the creative block and creating again, that gets me excited!

    Design Diary Sept 4, 2019 - "Black & White"

    Design Diary Sept 4, 2019 - "Black & White"

    Sometimes things aren't always black and white, sometimes they are.

    In this Design Diary, I talk about why I feel it's important to maintain a dialogue with the people who support my work.

    I was working on those new, 3-D styled, more realistic looking dungeons. When I showed them off to a friend of mine, his response in seeing them was not what I expected. His first response was, "Are you going to do black and white versions too?"

    Am I really that out of touch with what the gaming community wants?

    Design Diary August 27, 2019: "I'm not dead yet!"

    Design Diary August 27, 2019: "I'm not dead yet!"

    I feel like it's been a really long summer break. And unfortunately, it's not the type of break where I got a vacation. It's been a while since I've done any kind of audio journal, summer has been a lot more busy than it has in the past. I don't transition well, and I don't, I don't do change very well. So takes me a while to get back into a routine or change my routine.
    Meanwhile, I was thinking back to my first episode where I was talking about consistency, and my lack of consistency. And I don't know that much has changed since that first podcast about two years ago, I'm still pretty inconsistent. And the hardest thing for me is getting started on a project. And the second hardest thing for me is finishing a project. Somewhere in between is the lack of consistency, especially with large spans of time between projects. I would like to be able to change that and get better at it.
