Onward, 2019!

Whoa!  2018 has come and gone!  It left me sixty years old and tired to the bone.  Still, I learned a lot this past year, especially dealing with my work.  I can now publish on Kindle, and run a webcomic almost completely free.  To note some further accomplishments, I completed The GlymyreScape Player’s Manual and got a handle on the ‘Game Master’s Guide’!  As the old year spirited away and vanished however, the new year bested its accomplishments on the third day.  My new grandson was born, and that’s a pretty hard event to outdo.  Yeah, I thank The Good Lord for all my grandchildren and consider them each a Blessing that I don’t deserve.

Believe it or not, I have been working on page 35 of Glymyre Tales.  The drawing of each panel has been completed, and tomorrow I plan to do the coloring, shading and special effects.  Hopefully, I can get a schedule going and produce a lot more work.  We’ll see.

Working on “The GlymyreScape Game Master’s Guide”

2017 09 27 glymyrescapedice

As I wait for the proof of The GlymyreScape Player’s Manual, I’ve been working on “The GlymyreScape Game Master’s Guide”.  Right now, I’m concentrating on the advanced metals and alloys of the game; the chapter of which seems to be growing and growing.  The smithing of these ‘super alloys’ has been problematic, but (wouldn’t you know) the answer was to involve glymyring in the forging process.  Sorry, but you’ll have to wait for the book to see how.

I’m constantly amazed at all the ideas The Good Lord is providing me with these projects.  I give Him all The Glory.

GlymyreScape Work

Yeah, I’m weak from being sick since Saturday, but I’m back in the saddle. Managed to get some more work done on “GlymyreScape”, but it turns out it was something I have to save for the ‘Game Master’s Guide’. In the past, I’ve touched on the metals forged by the dwarves but never really finished a complete list of advanced alloys produced by all the races of the game. So, I got inspired and finally finished the alloys for the game. Nope, mythril is not on the list. I decided I wanted to be a bit more original than that. Since Mr. Tolkien came up with that metal, seems everybody expects dwarves to be forging it, so I went off on my own envisions. Course, some of you may already know the dwarven alloys if you remember Norry’s gear in “Legends of Whoelterran”. On the other hand, I now have the alloys and materials made by the Juanian and Aborish Elves, and well as the Stadthent Gnomes. But, you gotta wait for the ‘Game Master’s Guide’ to see.

Getting back to “The Player’s Manual”, I’m going to start working on the character’s attributes, and how to roll them up to start with. Some of you familiar with role playing would recognize attributes as stats; such as strength, intelligence, agility, and so forth. My notes have been pretty complete on this subject, so it’s going to be just a matter of typing up the descriptions, directions, tables and charts. That’s what I’m hoping anyway.
