October Activities

Holy bo schizzle it’s practically November! Before we know it it’ll be Christmas!! WWWHHATTTT

OLD MAGE PROTOTYPE

Well well well, what ‘ave we ere eh lads?

It’s the first proper OLD MAGE PROTOTYPE, innit!!

Man it has been a journey to get to this point, and we’re only half way there! Lots of fun, lots of learning, and lots of trial and error. I think I might write a separate blog post about our experience with the board game process so far actually; it’s quite different to our past print on demand book offerings. And inspiring, to be honest. I can totally see how boxed sets get made now, and how valuable tools like Affinity Photo, Affinity Publisher, and electronic platforms like Tabletopia really are. Word can do a lot, yes, but Affinity is really good at what it does. And for waaaaay cheaper than Adobe.

More to come on this!

FOUNDRY UPDATES

Grand Technomancer Dab has once again very generously been updating the LL 2090 and LFG Foundry modules. A heartfelt thank you to the great man and his code daemons!

Low Fantasy Gaming

  • Full compatibility with v10 (except for the original character sheet).
  • The recent Test Sheet is now the default character sheet for new characters. The original sheet has been moved to be a secondary and will be discontinued at the FoundryVTT v12 launch once its data structure is no longer supported.
  • New versioning system – this will now match up with FVTT releases. Current version (1.10.1) shows base.FVTTversion.UpdateNumber (so base, FVTT v10, update 1). When Dab releases the version no longer containing the original character sheet, the version will end up becoming 2.12.1LFG has been tested and is currently good to go with v10.
  • Quick bug fix for NPC sheets not rendering after changing the default Actor sheet. This fix ended up making the NPC sheet as tall as the Character sheet. While Dab was originally trying to keep the NPC sheets more compact, this will provide more room to perhaps add multiple automated monster attacks, as well as the option for a larger Notes area.

Lowlife 2090

  • Initial v10 migration, including a new version numbering system that will follow FVTT updates (v.1.10.1 is 1st update for FVTT v10).
  • Fixed chat card layout where a red line cuts through the card.
  • Fixed how chat was getting its info, so everything that was blank when v10 went live is now there again.
  • This version is now working with v10! There is still some more migration to do for v10, but it will be slow, safe, and steady work. There was a good bit of change implemented.

Stu Oliver over on Chainmail and Sword has recently been blogging about his LFG and Lowlife 2090 solo games! Including using the Low 90 Solo rules above :)) They’re a great read, and I encourage anyone interested in this style of gaming to take a stroll through the various tales in Stu’s blog.

RETRO ROLE CAST

Bryan, Rodney and the Two Shawns have made a podcast out of their LFG game! There’s nary a voice actor in sight – just four gaming grognards, rolling bones and having fun doin’ it 😀 They’re up to Episode 3 (excluding Ep: 0 Introduction), so now’s a great time to jump on board 🙂
