Quick Note - So Long Old Friend

As anyone who has the misfortune of having me circled knows I have a love hate relationship with my computer. Asgard was built 9 years ago and was, at the time, top of the line and somewhat future-proofed. I've cared for and maintained this system so long that when last night when it finally let out a final, sorrowful whirl of fan, my wife (the nurse) said I reminded her of a patient's family when they refused to just let go. She was right.
The New Order

9 years ago I was flush with cash. I was just out of college, had a teaching job in a good such and was single. I spent around 2k building my little beast, and she has followed me around since and in the last few years as all my business moved online dutifully limped on when in all reality she should have been put to rest.

This now leaves me with my Chromebook and not much else. Thankfully, due to "rollapp" I have access to Gimp, Libreoffice, and Scribus so I can continue to work and maintain my presence online ... still, I will miss my old girl and while the transition shouldn't be too painful it will be hard. I've been too used to Serif products and moving to full Scribus/Lucidpress will ... take time.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



I.
The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

Gate File 001 - First Approach
This is the next and the big project for the month of February for my Patreon and the one I want to push for public release in March/April.  The Gate File is being developed for 5th Edition SRD and will incorporate Modern rules and make suggestions as to that fact.















The Smoke Giant's Heir
A second 5th Edition SRD release, The Smoke Giant's Heir was originally meant to be published last July but ran into a number of difficulties including lost maps, Scribus and libre files becoming corrupted due to system failures as my tower died a slow and horrible death.  The Text is written out for this one but one map still needs to be redrawn and the layout needs to be put through Serif now that I have it back.


More Fantasy AgeI don't know yet what I want to do exactly but I want to start doing a fan version of my favorite MMO using Green Ronin's Fantasy Age system.  Obviously this will be a "serial numbers filed off" deal for the possibility …
