Re: Pescua [title work in progress!]

Thanks! Slowdive, yeah the "settings" option would be a nice addition and would clean up the interface a bit. Dorateen, my plans for putting something out keep changing. I was going to wait until I finished chapter 2, but realistically that's going to take most of this year which feels too...

Re: Pescua [title work in progress!]

Some progress over the last month. Mainly I've been developing the swamp area around the lizardmen camp. I'm aiming for it to feel unpleasant, so there are lots of creatures with poison attacks and plants that release noxious fumes etc. Its an area you can actually get to quite quickly from the star...

Re: Hearkenwold

Looks great Dorateen! Looking forward to this. Those Dark Dryads look pretty nasty... I just found the hook horrors on a fairly early map east of the castle - were they there in the last build? Wonder if I missed them. They made short work of my lvl3 party though ha, I'm not trying to get past them ...

Re: Pescua [title work in progress!]

Yes, I have a master world map on excel. It helps me keep track of things like rivers and coastlines that cross multiple maps. Each map has a grid ID - A1, B2 etc - and all the convo, encounter, and container names begin with that ID so I can find them easily. It felt like overkill when I started, b...

Re: Hearkenwold

Well done Dorateen! I'm always impressed with how quickly you make progress, given you're building in two separate engines.

I haven't caught up with the new content yet, but for what its worth I'd also vote for Edinmoor to build on the open world feel.

Re: Pescua [title work in progress!]

I had a good night of building yesterday - family were away, so I got to spend a good chunk of hours alternating building and slowly progressing my Hearkenwold playthrough :) A good Iceblink night. I'm building chapter 2, which has three main quests and a conclusion quest: - the lizardman camp I men...

Re: Slowdive's Little Daily Blog

That's a great introduction to the genre! I only got into Might and Magic much later on, I wish I'd played them on release, I would have loved them.

Re: Slowdive's Little Daily Blog

Nice! 1989 was a good year for RPGs - which one was it Dorateen? I got Space Rogue on the c64 that year and spent many hours slooooooowly making my way around the galaxy. Very impressive at the time. Curse of the Azure Bonds came out that year but I think it was a few years later when I got it.

Merry Christmas Iceblinkers :)

Nice screenshot for Codex - good example of the convo system with conditions!

Re: Hearkenwold

I'll be playing it slowly over a few weeks I think - its a nice break from working on Pescua! I've only just cleared out the goblins and started heading east to the tavern, so early days. I just hit level 2 - Prayer looks like a great addition for my cleric, I don't remember that from last time. Its...
