I am having WAY too much fun with the character interviews. This little tidbit takes place after chapter 6. There aren’t any real big spoilers in it, but I do reference stuff that happens in both chapters 5 and 6 so if you are reading and haven’t gotten that far, some of this may not make sense. (actually,the ending references something in chapter 7, which hasn’t even been posted yet. Not a huge thing though.) On that note, let’s talk to Jerok.
OK, still hung up on my map. I found a good tile set, and played around until I figured out layer masks. Here is the result:
Got wrapped up in the map again. Made some progress, though. I abandoned the tutorial for the most part and just kind of went off on my own. I am reasonably happy with the geography. The next step will be to feather the layers of the mountain elevation and add rivers and other bodies of water.
Now it’s time for some of my nerdy analysis. Why does this work? What makes character interviews helpful? Continue reading Character Interview Part 4

So, now you’ve seen the crap version of Chapter 5 opening. I should have mentioned that chapter 4 is where she meets Jerok after fleeing from a gang of murderous robbers. She has accepted Jerok’s offer to accompany her to Trior. What she doesn’t know is that Jerok is a thief of sorts as well. After originally planning on robbing her, when he found out she was a priestess traveling to the castle, he decided to tag along so he could swipe some goodies from there.
You may have noticed that you’re not on WordPress anymore! That’s because I have moved my blog to my own domain. Don’t bother looking at the non-blog site yet. There’s nothing to see.
As is typical of relocating sites, please update your links and what-not to reflect the new address. The old address will redirect you here for the next 12 months, but I’d rather get it taken care of sooner than later.
Thanks for sticking with me!
No, I’m not talking to myself. My characters are talking to me, and I talk back. Really, it’s them. Don’t you hear them? I do….. Continue reading Character interviews
At long last, I am back to finish the editing series. I had to dig down into my stack of discard paper to get chapter 1 notes again, but let’s wrap this up, as I already know what I want to talk about next. Continue reading Final editing notes…
