So, tried an experiment: drawing a map entirely on my iPad that retained the character of my hand-drawn maps. This is the result. I'm surprisingly happy with the result (sort of thought it would be a shit show, but having access to layers for various parts was a fucking godsend).

The Gale Downs, a small region along the eastern coast of the Ruin Sea, part of Broken Lands campaign world developed over the years by me and my friend +Richard Forest.

Haven't drawn a game map in almost a year, so to my eye, this feels like it shows, but that's your inner critic for you!

The map of the Westerlands is for my upcoming Roots of Nezara D&D 5e campaign, my first time running 5e. For those curious what that's about, here's the campaign doc:

Anyway, was trying something different with this map, building the labeling in before I put down the terrain and using a bit of color to differentiate stuff.

This problem goes deeper than math. It's an education problem.

I see it teaching English majors how to teach grammar.

There's a second piece to the American puzzle that this article doesn't get into. Teaching is a relatively low status profession in the US, and it also doesn't pay particularly well. If you are really very good at math, you are much better off financially to choose a career outside education. This hurts our ability to attract the best talent to teaching.

Some very skilled people choose it anyway, but many do not.

Some pictures in and around the new house. We moved in around a month ago, with snow everywhere. Now spring is really starting to pick up and the place is coming alive.

My co-authored article "‘Goblins Owles and Sprites’: Discerning Early Modern English Preternatural Beings through Collocational Analysis" is now available. I enjoyed working on this with Michael Ostling of the University of Queensland.
