Living the Fantasy (2016)

 

April 03, 2016

Greetings and Salutations once again. This month I've added only two new pages, one discussing Calendars of the Palladium World and the other adding some new info on Gosai Culture. Neither of them are complete. The Calendars still need names for the months on the Dwarven and the Western Empire calendars. Meanwhile the Gosai Culture only has a few segments complete. Since I'm not intending to publish either of these, I'm posting what I have. They contain useful and complete info, I simply intend to add more details later.

I've already posted most of the large chunks of new content the last couple of months, so hoping you weren't expecting that every month. Now I'll just be posting a trickle of new content as I feel they're ready. Because I often get distracted or lose motivation as I go, I intend to post some articles in segments (like the two above), so you can have the info now. If I finish them next month, great! But if it takes me a year to come back to it, you don't have to wait for what I already have. Farewell and safe journeys.

Greetings and Salutations. Okay, so remember that big update I mentioned last month? Well, it's here. There's so much new content that I'm going to have to break it down into sections. There are 20+ new pages. While a few are old ones being reposted again for the first time in years, many are brand new and being posted publically for the first time ever! This also means some rearranging and new options to the left side menu. I've also gone through my "Links" and "Credits" pages, updating a few links that have moved and removing a few dead ones. Hope you enjoy.

World Building: Added new Expanded Rules including Magic Combat, Movement During Combat, Oversized Weapons, as well as expanded rules for Parrying (which goes into factors such as weapon size, giants, and shields) and Simultaneous Attacks (a rule many feel is problematic). I also removed three links from this page and moved them to new pages (see below for details).

O.C.C.: Included the Blind Warrior (Men at Arms), Metal Warlock (Practitioner of Magic), Wild Huntress (Practitioner of Magic), and the 'Porter (Psychic).

Monsters & Animals: Included Sin Spiders and Spirit Boar (added to Spirit Animals).

Training Grounds: An entirely brand new page dealing with Hand to Hand styles. This can expand on the standard four and add a whole new dimension to combat. There are currently only 8 styles included (7 all new, plus one that was previously located on the World Building page), but I intend to add more over the next few months.

Magic Cauldron: Metal Spells (for Metal Warlocks) and Woodland Magic (for the Wild huntress) have been added.

The Armory: (Formerly known as the "Items Chest") Custom Arrows have been added to give archers that added edge of customization. I've also removed from Rune Items from the page and placed them on a new page.

The Rune Forge: All the rune items from the Armory have been placed here. There are no new ones included, just a new page to put them all in one place. I may add more in the future, but I don't care for rune weapons much so this won't be a top priority.

Adventurers' Guild: This is another new page designed to be a one stop location for the adventure material on my site. I've included the "Bounty Board" which is designed to include small little adventures that players can take as side jobs or ignore without affecting campaigns as a while. I finished the "What's Real?" bounty early this morning in a bit of a rush, but I hope stll entertaining and of quality. It also contains two adventures previously on the World Building page. I want to include more in the future, but this is a start.

 

February 05, 2016

Greetings and Salutations once again. With the first weekend of the month comes the next update to the site. This time I made it count. For those that don't know, approximately six and a half years ago I removed the Cultures section of my site. This section showed detail into the many races of the Palladium World. The reason it was removed is because it became a part of something bigger, the Rifter 0.1 project which was submitted to Palladium. Late last year, for a variety of reasons, that project was officially cancelled. I agree with that decision, and that means I am free to return that information to my site, for free, for all of you to enjoy. Cultures included for Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes, Ogres, Trolls, Changelings, and Dragons. I wanted to cover all the main book races (some of them were already done by others in various issues of the Rifter). Even for those of you who still have the old information, this version has been rewritten with new pieces added. Note: I've actually started another rewrite for a project I'm working on regarding these articles, but I make no promises when (or if) I'll complete this project.

The cultures are one of many new additions I intend to add to this site. The article I submitted to Palladium also included some new O.C.C., new types of magic, and extra rules. Some of those will be added to this site in another month or two, while some may be held back for something else I have planned for this site. I intend to also add some all new content soon. While I intend next month, a lot of this will depend on my schedule and how much free time I can manage. The reason for much of this delay is lack of free time to edit, as well as some of it requires adjusting the organization of this site. This new content will involve entirely new areas to the site, while possibly restructuring old ones. For those of you viewing the site, the changes will be minor. However, as the one who has to make the changes, it'll be a fair bit of work that I'm reserving for when I have more time. Hope you understand. Farewell and safe journeys for another month.

 

January 01, 2016

Greetings and Salutations. Well, it's been a while since I've udated this site, so I decided to include a few new items for you to peruse. I added a section to the "Campaign Settings" called Ashkelon. You may recognize this name as some of its content has been included on this site before. The Ashkelon setting is work submitted to me by Fred Wong. He's given me enough work now that I figured I'd give him his own page. Next, I included two new creatures to the Monsters & Animals page, the Esuvrym and Spirit Animals. Both of them are listed in the Animal section. I've also added the Beast Jockey O.C.C. to the site. Most of these are old works either being reposted or posted for the first time. Hope you enjoy all of it.

As for my lack of updates, I figure I owe all of you an explanation since it's been so long. To start with, nothing bad happened to me. Now, for the more detailed explanation. I tend to write and update my site during times I'm at home but my wife is at work. For one, I use her computer to make all my updates and when she's home she tends to use her computer instead. Her schedule changes every few months, and her last schedule change resulted in her and I have almost the same schedule. Usually I have an hour or two before she gets out of work to myself, and often a day or two where she's at work and I'm at home (then when I'm at work she's at home). This has worked well for giving me free time to write and update my site. Her last schedule change resulted in the two of us having almost the same schedules. It's great! We spend a lot more time together (before we'd often only have a few hours a night, and maybe one full day together). So while it's great for the two of us, it means less updates. Sorry, but I regret nothing. Her next schedule change might be coming up soon (it has been a few months now), but that's not a guarantee. When her schedule changes again, we'll see what kind of time that leaves me for this site.

Despite my not updating this site often, it doesn't mean I've forgotten about it or you. I continue to work on a few things in the background, just nothing ready for posting here. I continue to have grand ideas for this site, but the truth is I probably won't get around to those in the next few months. I'll do what little I can, and I hope you can continue being patient. Thank you for your time and understanding, you're all the best. Farewell and safe journeys for now.
