Just a short one this week, I’ve been busy with work and a few other concerns, including a moderate amount of writing myself.
Tomorrow I start hosting another RPG Blog Carnival, “Fantastic Creations”. There was a really good turnout to the Carnival I hosted in January on “Fantastic Locations”, and I’m hoping to see something similar this time.
You may notice some slight changes to the layout of the site. It was recommended that I trim the sidebar and drop some of the sidebar widgets. After making the change, I have to admit that it was a good idea — I can use the space, and the page balance looks much better.
Hall of Fame
Coat of Arms Design Studio
Joe recently (about a week ago, actually) updated three new shield shapes: circle, vertical flag, and horizontal flag. The circle and horizontal flag are especially useful to me (holy symbols and flags respectively), but I think I can find a way to use the vertical flag shape for banners and the like.
I have collected the links to (and brief descriptions of) each in the list below. I must say that I like how they are presented. Each encounter is presented at three different level ranges (if I were doing these for Echelon I would do them at three tiers), with several options for the circumstances of each encounter. The encounters presented are not necessarily with only the named creature, but may include other related creatures.
(Normally when I announce an addition to the Hall of Fame I quote it in full, but that is a 2500-word page, with links to the individual sandbox encounters and the summary description of each.)
Added to the Hall of Fame under Setting Elements.
