  1. Over Here Over There Oh Wait....Over THERE Too....

    by , 10-12-2012 at 09:49 AM
    The human mind is pretty amazing. I'm fascinated by mine. How can it possibly keep coming up with idea after idea and then chasing after said ideas like a puppy chasing a ball. I was happily working on my "Adventures of Calan Stonebridge" encounter map series and a long shelved project was suddenly unearthed by my brain like a child finding a dusty box in Grandmothers attic. I don't think I have ADD, I just think my brain is trying to get it's "to do" list done. Calan Stonebridge, ...

  2. The Adventures of Calan Stonebridge Part Three

    Here is part three of the text-only version of The Adventures of Calan Stonebridge.

    Calan Stonebridge could not remember a time when he had been more sore. He had spent the last few hours huddled under a foul smelling tarp in the back of a stolen grave diggers wagon. The rough planks of the floor of the wagon had dug into his flesh and the hard ride had given him bruises he was sure would never heal. The roads outside of Riverhewn had been hard packed due to a lack of rain and he ...

    Here is part two of the text-only version of The Adventures of Calan Stonebridge

    Calan Stonebridge ran up the stairs and out of the horrifying basement as fast as his legs would carry him. He found a door pulled it open and ran outside. He could hear the sound of footsteps and yelling behind him he ducked behind some crates and tried to sit very still. "What do you mean you didn't leave the bolt off?!" Calan heard the rough male voice ask someone. "I mean I didn't leave ...

  4. The Adventures of Calan Stonebridge Part One

    Here is part one of the text-only version of The Adventures of Calan Stonebridge as written to this point. Enjoy

    Calan Stonebridge was very aware of the type of tavern the "Stabbed Soldier" was. Although he was only 13 years old, he had lived in Riverhewn long enough to know that the tavern was the meeting place for many of the cities seedier citizens. He hated living in the city. Especially in the area known as the "Common Ward" it was the poorest area of the ...

  5. Mapping Elements and Fear.....

    by , 10-04-2012 at 11:42 PM
    Sometimes this place can be a bit... intimidating. There are so many talented people making so many nice maps that sometimes it can be a bit frighting. I'm fairly secure in my belief in my own talent when it comes to encounter map making and story telling and in a less secure way my large scale map making skills. One area that I had NO confidence in was my ability to create objects. You know, the little details that make an encounter map. Barrels and crates and horses and things like that. There ...
