I don’t HAVE to reach the average, but it feels good to do so.

Well, I said I’d do it, and here I am, doing it! I’m actually working on my story…world!

And I’ll show those fools. I’LL SHOW THEM ALL!

…What do you mean nobody was actually challenging my claims?

…What do you mean nobody CARED ENOUGH to challenge my claims?

REGARDLESS! Here’s a report on my writing!

Writing Blogs: Behind The Screen

Find the balance which makes YOUR life meaningful.

So, my readership which can be counted on one hand (maybe two!) is used to me posting week after week, talking about writing and stuff.

But do people actually know how I write stuff? How the blog sausage is made?

…People don’t want to know how sausages are made?

…And nobody is actually interested in my production process?

…Whatever, I’m still talking about it!

The Write Stuff: Year Two

And in all that, I didn’t stop writing in my blog week after week.

So here we are, 2 years or so since I first started out.

2018 draws to a close. We’ve had a democratic victory in my home country, the passing of Stan Lee, and if I am to believe what I hear, the first genuinely good live-action Transformers movie, and Aquaman of all heroes representing the first fun DCEU movie. What a time to be alive.

So…How am I doing?

Fabletop: The Loot Of All Evil

That being said, you probably shouldn’t troll your players by making “friendship” the final reward.

What moves adventurers?

A rich backstory?

A thirst to prove themselves, to explore?

A righteous cause?

It’s loot.

Or…something shiny that will either buy them many nice things or help them kill stuff better.

Character Conflict: Why Don’t You Just Talk It Out?

CHOOSE! DRAMA OR YOUR SON- Oh, you picked your son. OK, then.

Rivalries. Love triangles. Problems which could have been avoided with open, honest communication.

That’s right, gang. Today I’m talking about… (activates VOICE SYNTHESISER)

Interpersonal Character Conflict, Character Conflict

Interpersonal

Interpersonal Character Conflict, Character Conflict,

Intergalactic- WAIT I DID THAT WRONG-

Oh, it’s one of THOSE campaigns.

Because the first thing you need to learn is that you are all DOOMED!

…What do you mean this isn’t appropriate for your levels?

…Well, how would YOU suggest we plan this encounter, then?

Likability: Rating Character Approval

The audience can relate to them, meaning they see some of themselves in them: “Oh yes, I ALSO eat food in order to not die!”

Hey guys! I made the best character ever!

They’ve got a heart-wrenching, tragic backstory to make them morally complex, yet they are also relatable and always make the right choices!

Everyone that matters loves them and everyone that doesn’t is proven wrong as a mean stupid-head!

I gave them all the best lines and quotes, and the world comes to a halt unless they’re around!

…What do you mean YOU DON’T LIKE THEM? I just TOLD you to like them! What’s the deal with THAT?
