We just finished the 1-hour scenario contest that our family did for fun, and the resulting scenarios are available under the "Other Stuff" tab.

Please let us know what you think!

In other, older news...I gave up on the Dahak scenario since I would not be able to finish it for the deadline, I gave up on Archipelago because I ran out of nodes in the most important towns and am too lazy to redo them, and I have started another scenario that is hopefully not going to be given up on. 

Am I the only one who thinks that header image needs to be changed to something less default?  I'm not sure whether to give it a more photograph-that-I-took or Blades-of-Exile look.  Opinions, anyone?

 

  I must apologize for the tone of my last post, but I was feeling really overwhelmed that day.  By now, I'm actually in Dahak's scenario contest (and am making some good progress on the story and outdoors), as well as taking a photo challenge on the forums in addition to my other responsibilities, but I've actually managed to keep up with most of it.  I've caught up to Dikiyoba in the stories, so I've now joined the group waiting with bated breath for the next installment. ;-)

  Regarding the contest entry, I'm finding that I need a lot more custom graphics for it than any other scenario I've attempted thus far, despite its relative shortness, in order to stay close to the spirit of Dahak's photos.  Or at least, as I interpret them.  So far, I'm really pleased with the results (even though the one purple plant looks like anything but!)  I've posted the first screenie here, with more (hopefully) to come.

  Archipelago is (once again) on hold.  I simply cannot focus on more than one scenario at a time, and the contest comes first.  I may decide to scrap Archipelago, as some of the coding is very badly done, but then I fear I would fall into the perpetual "I have a new, better idea" trap. So, I'm undecided.

  I've recently discovered an online game called 'Runescape'.  I don't know if any other Spiderwebbers are on, but feel free to add me there if so.  My name is Mistb0rn, same as here.  I'm not on that much, and mostly in the morning, around the 8-10 range.

  Well, I can't think of much else to write, so I guess that's it for today.  Oh, and feel free to check the Photo Challenge tab.  I'm posting the best images I take for Ephesos's challenge to flickr and you can see them there.

  Well, that's not strictly acurate, but close enough.  I'm still mostly working on the graphics conversion for my project with Jedi Nescioquis, although I am making some progress on Archipelago.  I'm also considering a mod for BoE, but it'd probably not be very popular.  But, it's something to consider...

  Still no reviews of The Cherth Campaign, though I have gotten quite a bit of useful feedback via the forums.  I've decided that for now I won't take the time to edit it, though that could be another thing to consider in future.

  Also, I re-worked my site to include a separate page for other spiderweb games stuff (e.g. Jedi Nescioquis's mods and patches).  It's under 'Other Stuff'.  It also includes the link to Other Scenarios, though Zero Point* is the only one there now.  I hope that will change soon.

I don't know what the problem was, but I couldn't get Weebly to load the past few days, so I wasn't able to post at all.  Until now...

I've been working on Archipelago quite a bit, but it looks like I'm going to need to re-design two of the major towns due to special node limitations.  With such a daunting task ahead, I also picked up the demo of Geneforge from the Spiderweb website for some non-exile related playing.  I hadn't tried it before, and It's actually really good.  I think I'll have to buy the trilogy bundle here soon.  It's way better than Avernum.

ZeroPointEngery is making good progress on his second scenario.  It may even be ready within a week or two. 

And, of course, I'm still accepting beta testers for The Cherth Campaign.  Email me at Mistb0rn@aol.com.

Well, I've never done a blog before.  So, I guess I'll just put a progress report thing.  I just changed the name of my almost-ready scenario from Dragon Quest 1 to the less generic, The Cherth Campaign.  I also added a little mushroom-type graphic-thing to the homepage.  I still haven't found the right header image, so we'll just go with the default for now. 

Archipelago is coming along quite well, I've done about 20% of the outdoors and about 40% of the towns associated with those outdoor sections. 

I'm also working on a walkthrough for Cherth Campaign while waiting for Jedi Nescioquis to finish testing it.  I could use some more testers, if they'll actually play the thing.  I think I'll post on the forum...
