I was messing about with GIMP/Inkscape today, and this simple black and white dungeon map is the result. It's sized for letter printing or VTTs.

An update on my Direwolf20 Minecraft project. Botania, power generation, quarries and more.
After my somewhat disastrous trip to the Nether last report, I spent last week working on base improvements. After upgrading base power to provide more efficient ore processing and a more energy for farming, I started working on a Botania setup. This proved interesting since there have been some ...

Playing a little more Minecraft.
I had limited time for Minecraft this week, but I did get a few things done. In the last post, I mentioned doing some basic automation to keep myself supplied, organizing storage, and building a quarry. One out of three ain't bad, right?

A bit more of my modded Minecraft let's play series.
I've been playing my modded Minecraft world a bit since my last post, making slow progress on my base, doing a bunch of mining, and creating a bunch of handy tools using my newly built Smeltery. As I mentioned last time, I wasn't quite sure if I was going to stay put or move my base.

Part two of my series on animal companions for OSR gaming.
As promised in this post, here are the experience and quirk tables for dog and horse animal companions, suitable for use in any OSR-ish RPG. If you're looking for mules, check out the previous post. Dogs and Guard Dogs. Dogs include two categories of animal companions.

It's a bit late for New Year's resolutions, but it does seem like a good time for a new game.
In my recent recap of 2015, I mentioned my last Minecraft series, the City Builder Challenge, died a death of ennui. Rather than trying to do something in vanilla, which always seems to end with me getting bored, I'm going to play a modded game. How modded? Very.

They would, but needed a change of pace.

Nasty crawling creatures for your next overland adventure. Who says grasslands are boring?

"Did you hear that?"
   "Hear what?"
"Dunno. Sounded like a small stick hitting a stone floor."
   "Oh. Probably just Morty devouring the last of the ribs.
"Ah, right. I swear that halfling could eat half a cow by himself..."

A two-part article on giving animal companions, horses, dogs and mules, a little extra oomph. Mostly D&D/OSRish.

Indeed it was! Jeeeeezus.. what  a difference this patch has made.

My Wizard could just about clear gr 30 if I got the right tileset and density.
I have 6p Tal Rasha 4p Firebird but no Serpent Sparker yet. Only Helm ancient.

Last night I threw all caution to the winds and without changing ANY gear, did a 35 with 6mins to spare. Enboldened by this I did a 40 and again had 6 minutes to spare. And that one had act v mobs (winged leapers, archons etc)

Still no  sparker though lol.

SO looking forwards to Friday..
