Welcome

Living the Fantasy is a fan site dedicated to Role-Playing Games (RPG), in particular Palladium Books and the Palladium Fantasy setting. Even if you're not a fan of Palladium Fantasy, or Palladium Books in general, this site may still provide a useful resource for new information and ideas. I've tried to include basic material, short stories, artwork, and ideas which can apply to many systems and different types of writing. If you don't know what a RPG is or who Palladium Books are, then feel free to check out their website here.

Note: Previously known as World Book: Prysus and Prysus' Homepage. The name tends to change when I do a major overhaul to the site, but some of the same content is here and still run by me.

 

Recent Changes

November 11, 2018

Greetings and Salutations again. So I don't have any new updates for the site at this time. I've been doing some upgrades to the PF Character Sheet. This will involve a few cosmetic changes to make it more user friendly, as well as many new features. The newer features should help make character creation (and leveling) faster and easier. While I've finished most of that work, I'm still in the troubleshooting stage and a few other small details. I hope to have the new version released before the end of the year, but there are a few things I need to make sure are resolved before that happens. I'll update more as I have more information to share. Thank you. Farewell and safe journeys.

Greetings and Salutations. Last update I asked for opinions. I waited a while before moving forward because I wanted to give people time (I've also been working on other projects). While I didn't get nearly as much feedback as I'd have liked, I decided to move forward with what I had. I'm planning to make a single, unified NPC Sheet. Before I did that though, I decided to work on a different request. I added a Combat Sheet to the PF Character Sheet. This includes a section to include unarmed attacks, W.P. bonuses, different types of armor, and a wider selection of weapons. This sheet is, for the most part, optional. I decided to do this first because there are aspects of it I can use in the NPC Sheet. I'll begin work on the NPC Sheet soon, but I'm not sure how long before I have a version up and running. I will try to keep everyone updated. Thank you for your time and continued support. Farewell and safe journeys.

 

August 10, 2018

Greetings and Salutations once again. I haven't updated in three months and a half months. As some of you may know, I had a small conflict with Palladium regarding some of my recent content (mainly the Character and NPC Sheets). I took a small break afterwards to allow time for futher discussion as well as I just needed a break after that. Even during the intermission though, I still worked on a few Palladium files. So I'm uploading the NPC Sheets for Orcs (Mercenary, Assassin, and Vagabond/Farmer O.C.C. options), Dwarves (Soldier, Warrior Monk, and Blacksmith O.C.C. options), and Vampires (Master, Secondary, and Wild options). For the Orc Farmer, I decided to allow Botany as an O.C.C. Related skill since it's the skill Palladium describes as the ability to farm. With the Vampires, I also had to make quite a few judgment calls (and not a project I'd care to repeat).

During that downtime I also worked on some non-Palladium projects, including a D&D 3.5 monster sheet for a friend that included hundreds of monsters, multiple classes, and multiple feats in a similar manner to the NPC sheets (only not limited by the concerns of copyright since it was for his personal use only). I must say, it was a lot of fun and I was able to flex and test my Excel skills in a way I'm not allowed to do with Palladium. However, I have realized something I can do differently. So I'm going to ask you, the fans, on how you'd like me to proceed.

Option 1: I can continue making NPC sheets as I have been doing. So one for Orcs, one for Goblins, one for various other races. Each sheet will have 3 O.C.C. options. This will be quick and easy to navigate. I can put out one or two of these a month without much difficulty.

Option 2: I can put a pause on the NPC sheets and rework the file. This would allow me to put multiple races in one file, as well as many more O.C.C. For the time being, options will remain limited to non-magic and non-psychic classes. However, this would allow you to select an Elf, Dwarf, Orc, Goblin, Ogre, Troll, Wolfen, etc. from a drop down list, and then select an O.C.C. (primarily Men at Arms, as well as some "Optional" classes), then your special abilities, similar to how it's done now. Basically, similar to what I've done now, but a lot more options all in one file. The problem is, this will take some time to set up, and I'm sure I'll run into complications along the way. We're talking probably another couple of months (or more) just setting up the framework. Also, by increasing the options, the drop down menus will become longer and there some of the other customizations may become slightly clunkier as well (not super complicated, but more than just a few mouse clicks that it is now).

So I'm asking your opinions. I will take no response as a lack of interest, and if there's little interest I will stop doing the NPC sheets. So if you find them useful, please let me know your thoughts. Thank you. Farewell and safe journeys for now.
