Firearms, Wizards, and a New Sketch

September 5th, 2006

It’s been quite a while, but the Firearms Critical Effects are finished. These are a bit more lethal, but then they are firearms. Next up on the docket is the Spell/Energy Chart, which hopefully will not take quite so long.

Also, due to a recent combat against a low-level Wizard which took way too long, I’ve added some notes & modifications to the Main Critical Hit Chart specifically dealing with combat against magic-users. Now, that pesky Wizard will feel Critical Hit penalties where they hurt — right in the Will Power and Mag score — rather than in the relatively less important Weapon Skill.

Also up is another “Stones & Sigils” sketch from TJ, this time featuring the titular stone (TJ assures me that the final version will be riven with runes). Work progresses apace on this scenario, and I plan to have it available for download by January of 2007 — depending, of course, on how busy the rest of my life gets.

  1. Yeah, yeah, riven with runes, I gotcha…

    What the hell does ‘riven’ mean again?

    Now y’all see why it’s tricky to draw from Chuck’s written descriptions. 😀

    On a serious note, it’s the first week of school at the university where I work, so I tend to be putting in a tad bit of overtime and am pretty exhausted when I come home.

    It’s not conducive to the creative process is it now?

    Stick around, I’ll be getting back to this project and will have some more soon, I hope!
