I gotta map more!

As usual on my way to work I start thinking about what I'm going to post on the blog.  I need to map more!  I think tonight is going to be one of those sit at home and relax kind of evenings, and coincidentally I have a pile of graph paper printed! I'd love to say that I could finish a map a week and post it up as "free map friday", or something like that.  But I don't want to come out and say "yes I'll do that".  As you know I tend to get great ideas, and then procrastination sets in.  That said I think I'll sit down tonight and come up with something.

If i was to do a free map friday, or maybe a free adventure friday, I think I would have to have a few in the can, already done.

And onto other interesting news:

I found this blog post, and found it quite interesting:
Proposed Optional Class Thief
I quite like the thief skill mechanics, which made me think about Magic users and how they learn spells.  The mechanic above is based on rolling over a number with 2d6, and of course as time goes on your get better at it.  A similar table for learning spells might be interesting.

example

Another interesting blog about ability checks & DCs

Universal Exploits was released the other day.  It's a source book for Alpha Blue written by +Venger Satanis , which I somehow managed to get a credit for "creative contribution".  Neat! 

Here's the deal on it. 

Universal Exploits (originally titled Pussy Chasers: The Legend of Oral) is the second sourcebook for the sleazy sci-fi RPG Alpha Blue.  If you've ever wondered what it would be like to play in a dark and wacky space opera porn - Star Wars meets The Satisfiers of Alpha Blue - this is your chance.
Even if you aren't familiar with the lighter than rules-light system of Alpha Blue, the majority of Universal Exploits is system neutral!
The book has more rules, setting, random tables, artwork, scenario fragments/ seeds, cool maps of starships and Grabba the Butt's pleasure palace, new customized character sheets... it's got everything!  If you love Alpha Blue and Girls Gone Rogue (the first sourcebook), then you'll want this, too.  
Universal Exploits is the most lavishly expensive book that Kort'thalis Publishing has ever published.  This is the ultimate space sandbox for your gaming needs!
Warning: if you are the least bit offended by adult/mature content of a sexual nature (words and pictures), then please stay away!  You'll certainly be offended by this awesome space product.
