|You know that caption a couple of days ago about ties I had never worn that were lost in a bag for two years? Yep. This is another one of those...|
Okay, I'm not entirely certain if the Vitamin D infusion is working. I have only taken dose thus far (it was a *HUGE* dose, though), but things seems to be, for lack of a better phrase, looking up. It is just over two weeks until the convention and I am MEGA-behind on work, but progress has been made.
Last night, I reskinned mechanics for a very setting-dependant magic system into a less setting-dependant psionics system. I still need to do power listings, but the frame work is there, and I only need a few abilities to cover the scenarios I'm doing for the convention. Once I get a handle on those, I'm going to sit down and sketch out some weapons and armor specifications that include things *NOT* found in a run-of-the-mill fantasy game. Copies of Boot Hill, Top Secret, and Star Frontiers just fell into my lap. Combine that with fact I already own SpaceMaster, Shadowrun, and Deadlands, and I have enough reference material to knock what I need out of the park in short order.
Then I will make player characters, NPCs, monsters, and maps. The maps will take the longest time, but I have a couple of ideas on how to shorten that...
It all seems downhill from here... =)
