FFC #19 - CHALLENGE: Writing Characters

Posted September 14th, 2018 at 02:00 PM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry 19

I wanted to give my readers a quick update on Horizon in Sight. The fiction is moving along. I've split part two in half, so there are now four parts in total. This is shaping up to be the longest thing I have ever written, fan fiction or otherwise.

Part three introduces a lot of new side characters, and upon writing them I've realized that they aren't quite as alive as I would like. My writing process is great for assigning character traits and working out what they need for the fiction and how they go together. In short, it deals with the technical side of things.

Unfortunately, the only way to make characters be alive - that is, actually feel like a real person - is to make them real in your mind, to the point where you automatically know how they would act and what they would say. And the only way to do that (at least properly) is just to spend time exploring them, usually through the use of writing...

Silent Death - My New Obsession

Posted September 6th, 2018 at 12:32 PM by kolakoski

Well met!

chas recently picked up a copy of Silent Death Next Millennium, a miniatures game released in 1995, which I had never heard of. I'm shocked, shocked, that it is so little known, as it is wonderfully elegant. With Taeblewalker, we played it last night, and had a blast!









From a review in BoardGameGeek:


Silent Death: The Next Millennium is the second edition of the Silent Death game published by Iron Crown Enterprises in 1995. This edition was written by Matt Forbeck.

Silent Death is one of my favorite games of all time. I have always had a blast playing this game.

The boxed set includes a 168 page rule book, scenario pack, tables and ship display pack, 48 plastic fighters (4 each of 12 types) and stands, 248 miniatures of missiles, torpedoes and asteroids,

ARV Maps - September 2018

Contest Review
Wastelands of Valhalla
Author: BiggaBullfrog


Time for another Contest Review, the part of the blog where we reminisce on past contests and look at what mapmakers were able to create for the Heroscape community to enjoy.

Contest Overview

“Wastelands of Valhalla” was the fourth ARV map contest. In the same vein as the previous contests, participants got to submit up to two of their creations that met the wasteland theme. It was a theme we judges were really excited about and one that sparked a lot of imagination among the map creators in our community.

Submissions

We had 18 submissions this contest, coming from 14 different users. This gave us a good variety of maps for the contest, with many different styles represented. Big maps, small maps, crazy terrain and glyph combinations,
