Writing Fiction for the First Time in Over a Decade, pt. 4
For some reason, I’ve been thinking about how well people actually read subtlety.

Just various thoughts I’ve had during this process. You can find the first part here.
Writing Fiction for the First Time in Over a Decade
Having been stuck at home for two years now, you need to start to come up with things to do. And while I have started to move around freely and return to the world actively, I still spend a lot of time just home and when you do that you need to come up with things to do.
Author Is More Alive Than Ever
Lucky is a cantankerous old man from a 2017 movie of the same name. After hour and a half of snarling, Lucky finally breaks the fourth wall, stares straight at the camera in a closeup and smiles. This is especially meaningful, because Harry Dean Stanton, the actor playing Lucky, died before the movie was even released.
New Fiasco Playset – Heart of Dreams
Heart of Dreams is the fourth Fiasco playset created on our Guild’s forum. It started out as a small idea for a oneshot but quickly evolved to a playset for Fiasco. This time only Aki and I participated in this but I still think it tops our previous playsets.
You can download the playset HERE or from the Resources page where you can also find the previous playsets.
Heart of Dreams – With a rising, award-winning director with a vision, an excellent script and plenty of funding, from both various public institutions and wealthy investors, the movie was going to be the biggest, most talked about since Star Wars.
Things didn’t go quite as planned.
The director insisted on a remote location for the shoot based on some half-spoken dream. He always seems to get mad when anyone brings it up. The conditions are horrible. Weather is a problem on most days and the shoot is over a year behind. Tensions are high, because there seems to be no end to this. The director and the star have been on each others throats for months, but most of the crew just wants to get by day to day.
As always we hope that you have good time playing something we have created!

Dungeon Builder & #mapvember
Once again it’s time for the annual #mapvember! In essence #mapvember was started by Miska Fredman. It is challenge to create one map per day for the whole November. I clearly forgot this but will still try to spend this month with maps in mind.
I actually was almost on time since I found the Dungeon Builder Kickstarter last week. I posted in on our forum and downloaded the demo. But since it was weekend I kind of forgot all about it. Until yesterday evening when I spotted a new map at Miska’s Instagram. With that in mind I woke up and tried to Dungeon Builder demo and this is what I was able to produce in five minutes:
RopeCon Scenario Competition 2016 – Chaos & Order
That time of the year, although at this point, I’m actually pretty late with this post. I’ve been busy despite being unemployed (actually time management seems to be a skill I quickly forgot), so I’m doing this pretty much at the last possible hour.
New Games by Guild Redemund
I’m cheating with the topic but at least you are reading still, right? These games are not “new” per se but hacks and adventures. There is our newest collaborative Fiasco playset, an agnostic fantasy adventure (though it does have Dungeon World threat sheet) and a game that is built on Matthijs Holter‘s Archipelago.
