How to Get Into Your Character
You often hear that some of the best D&D games happen when everyone is completely immersed into the story as their character[s]. But for new players who weren’t theatre nerds, this can be a challenge. This is the case with the group I am currently running and so I put together this small guide to try and provide helpful tips and suggestions on how to better develop your character to get into their headspace and therefore better roleplay as them. A lot of the game is up to a roll of the dice, but how you play your character is all you. What kind of role player are you? If…
Convention appearance – Anime Central
DisjointedImages and DisjointedCode will be in the Artist’s Alley at Anime Central all weekend: May 20-22 in Rosemont, IL. Come see us for high quality buttons and our solitaire game MahJong House.
Well, as I’m sure you’ve seen the blog got quite the overhaul today! Part of it is an effort to clean up (if I was feeling overwhelmed, it’s a problem) and part to bring it closer to the feeling of our other sites. First – the launch of my official photography site is coming soon. It’s live at: http://photos.disjointedimages.com but right now there’s not much to see in the galleries. Expect more and a full announcement later on that. Second – Chris (the brains behind DisjointedCode) will be moving to his own blog soon. He has lots of cool stuff and ideas to share and wanted his own space so…
Whew. ACen is over for another year. Hard to believe it went by so fast. I am only now getting to my writeup on it, as I’ve been recovering from “con plague”. I had a fantastic time despite a few hiccups (fire evacuation!), and it was wonderful seeing everyone. We had a fair number of cosplayers (and just people wanting a souvenir) come by for their photo buttons. Next year I promise we’ll have a good stock of colors for the decorative rings so no one misses out! There was a great response and feedback for MahJong House as well. Thank you to everyone who not only purchased it, but…
Youmacon recap / End of year ramblings
Phew – quite the time gap between posts. To quickly fill you in: we decided very last minute to throw together a WEDDING with no budget, little time, and a big dream. That pretty much ate up any spare time we had. It was however a lovely wedding, and everything went perfectly. Not long after we came back from our honeymoon, it was time to get everything together for Youmacon. It was a great weekend, lots of our fan/customers coming by to see the new designs, and a few new people too. I got to draw a squirrel, a goat with a monocle, a wolf, and will forever be haunted…
MahJong House 1.6
Version 1.6 was launched at Youmacon this past weekend.
It’s been a while since the last progress post on MahJong House.
On Gaming and Games
I recently heard about a new social site specifically geared to gamers: http://raptr.com/ After poking around and signing up, I found I was pleasantly surprised. It’s a very well made site, and shock of shocks, it works as advertised! You can find me at: http://raptr.com/disjointedimages One of the downsides to developing a game, is that actually getting to play any is difficult. I’ve got quite a few recent and/or soon to be released games that I’d love to sit down with. Hopefully you’ll see my status update as I get that chance, along with further reviews here. Here’s my short lineup: Tales of Monkey Island – C’mon! A new Monkey…
We have a new store! This one is much cleaner and easier to check out. For anyone who may have had difficulties before, I invite you over to the new shop. Grand Re-Opening! We have a new account system too! Now you can choose an easy to remember username. You do not have to create an account to make a purchase, but by doing so, you will be able to save your shopping cart, and have all of your billing and shipping information pre-filled whenever you come back. You’ll also be able to receive exclusive updates and discount specials.
Web Development (Or “The Hell of Coding”)
I’ve completely lost track of how many hours Melanie and I have spent on coding the new site and shopping cart system. The good news is that all of our pages should be updated soon, including the launch of a new store front powered by Ubercart (review coming soon).
