Cooking experiment book mark goes here.
Ecce panis---try your hand at the kind of loaf that Mel Brooks’ 2000-year-old man might have sunk his teeth into. Literally. In 1930 a loaf of bread dating to AD 79 (the year Vesuvius claimed two prosperous Roman towns) was excavated from the site of a bakery in Herculaneum.

A very beautiful song. Reminds me of Prize, who passed away earlier this month.

Glad you have a good community around you.
I am very happy, lately. Lots of upheaval but a good direction.

My main GW2 character is a ranger. This will be interesting...
The ranger's elite specialization reaches for the stars!

This is a list of all D&D 5E adventures I know about. It does not include the playtest adventures, which have their own list, as those adventures had significantly different monster stats and r...

One of my sisters asked me about the type of gaming that I do. Was it X-Box, Playstation, or what? I smiled, and said pen and paper and dice. Old school gaming.

You know, the kind that means you have to interact face to face with your friends.

I've played with groups before using MeetUp. That was semi-successful. Had some good experiences. Of course, moving in to a neighborhood where my neighbor has a gaming group is also pretty cool too. :)

I've started learning a new RPG called Iron Kingdoms. It looks very interesting. A friend of mine shared a link with some great resources.

HI, Grey Fix. I'll see if I can locate him. I haven't talked to him in years.

Excellent discussion on the power of a writer versus the pushing from an editorial house.
Or, Thank God for Jeff Bezos I launched a book this week and I went Indie with it. Indie means I released it on Amazon via Kindle Direct Publishing. I had to. My Publisher, HarperVoyager, refused to publish it because of some of the ideas I wrote about in it. In other words, they were attempting

Beautiful. I would love to have this hanging in my house some where. Probably above the bed. Because I would go swimming in that pond...

How To Draw A Cavern Map

This is a quick one - I take a few steps when laying out, and then drawing a cavern map.

1. Get the layout right with simple shapes
Dungeons are flow charts. Use simple shapes to figure out where players come in, where they go, how they can bypass certain obstacles, and choke points they need to go through. Don't worry about pretty at this stage, and use pencil. You should be sketching and changing a lot. This is mapmaking as adventure design.

This can take 5 minutes or this can take days.

2. Use pen to draw in rough cavern walls
You know where the walls are now so you can go in with pen and layout jagged dungeon walls. Break up the shapes from before - turn the caves into odd shapes. Never let your pen fly along the edge of the cavern, make it walk like a drunken sailor, creating a meandering jagged line.

3. Add detail lines inside the cave wall
When we see a hard line designating a wall, we mentally visualise a vertical wall and a horizontal floor. That's not true in caves - so I add details along the wall edge to show the rough jagged transition of an organic cave into the floor. For built maps I'd add the detail in the wall instead, because you want that visual cue of a clean corner, but not here.

And you're done!

This is how riding improves when you do the work to not lean forward.
