All aboard the crazy train

my name is Amraphael, I've been a toolsetaholic for many years... I've been sober for months, until yesterday. I just wanted to waste some time before going over to some friends for dinner. Now I sit here with two areas and some well balanced fights. And I feel the rush.

Below you see some screenshots from my failure to stay away from a new project. On the positive side (as all addicts say) I have limited the project by finding a suitable short adventure to put those areas into. I found the old Base of Operations in a drawer and I think a module of 40-60 minutes play would be possible to handle. A classic for adventurers team, very sparse conversations, 6-10 areas, starting level 5 - ending maybe level 6. No crazy custom sh*t (may fail heavily on that). I saw that there is one DM-version of the same adventure on the vault, but it doesn't matter to me. The story is always the same - find a reason to clean out the bad guys. Get the gold. Get the XP. And have some fun. And I won't even take a look at that other module. And I will really regret it when I have to spellcheck the ever so thin conversations and descriptions.

Believe me friends, it really hurts to do this. I was supposed to write children's book right now. And I should be fixing the contract with Spotify and our record label so that we get paid for that cursed 20-years of unreleased material album...

Thanks for reading!

So, do I have to wait for 40-60 minutes before this becomes an Epic, plane-travelling adventure or what? :p

jk. Nice that you're working on something again. I like the look of it.

At first, quick glance I thought these screens were from DA and you'd started work there...

Looking great! And great news to hear!

Quick adventures can be lots of fun, especially when you can string them together with other mods that take place in same setting.

I too have a problem. I need an intervention damnit! They need to show up with the camera crew, have my family there crying, and tell me to get on the bus (lol).

Perhaps Dr. Drew can come save my sorry addicted arse.

I can't say I addicted, but it is fun when I manage to actually do something. ;) However, I do find it frustrating when I see others knocking out some cool looking dungeons in a fraction of the time it takes me to come up with an idea. ;)

Maybe I have a slow spell cast on me?

Good to see you still at it. :)
