These links sat around for a while, and I figure I should share them with you guys:
I have some links for you, for a change:
Some assorted links, as usual:
I decided to move the science fiction stuff to a new blog, Contact Light. That blog is basically the “world-builder’s commentary”, a logbook as I create my own science fiction setting, discussing the how’s and why’s as the setting slowly takes shape.
I’d be very happy to see you there!
Lots and lots of assorted goodness this month:
Not a lot this month, but hey, I’ve been busy.
Spaaaaaaaace! and the Future
- Low-mass exoplanet imaged – It also “poses a challenge” to theories about Gas Giant formations.
- The City of 2050 – Nothing too original but probably worth a look if you are working on Sci Fi
- Not strictly Sci Fi: Check out Project Iceworm. Seems that in the early 60s, the US Army attempted to build a huge nuclear missile launch facility under the ice of Greenland. Valuable leads if you intend on ‘building’ an under-ice colony or lair for your supervillain. Also, see the propaganda video for some impressive visuals.
More odds and ends:
- The League of Legends lead designer talked a bit about player needs vs wants, a worth-while read. This is not exactly news to anybody who has even dabbled in the field, but he expresses it well – and many players do not realize these principles.
- Geeks On had an episode on RPG design.
Tools of the Trade
Question for you guys: Should I keep posting these here, or just on Facebook – or both?
