Serious and Organised / Men of Action / The ABC System: system written needs play testing. Arædan: Originally called Untitled Fantasy #1. In need of editing. The Seer: About 50% written and […]

Where did today go?

Monday, January 29th, 2007

Finished off two pictures in Vue 6 that will hopefully make it into Rag 52. Quite pleased with the first one. It may be the best picture I’ve turned out of Vue. Also played round trying to get a better Vue grass displacement material for large areas and terrains. The one I posted last night […]

Monday, December 4th, 2006

My Noir Fairy Tale past thirty thousand words after a sticky start thanks to a little advice from Raymond Chandler – "When in doubt have a man come through the door with a gun in his hand."

This Follows on from: Characters on the Couch (Part 16). The first part can be found at: Characters on the Couch (Part 1). Jung, Carl Gustav (1875-1961) Born in 1875 Jung (pronounced young) was trained in medicine in Basel. His early years of practice were at the BurghÅ¡lzli Mental Hospital in Zurich.

Death Scene Monologue and Keats

Monday, October 30th, 2006

In the process of bumping off a minor character in the Fairy Tale Noir I decided he deserved a bit of a monologue before he goes. However he’s both a bit of a geek and has a bad habbit of wandering way off the point. So he wanders and I needed to do some research […]

Never let you're Characters off the Leash

Monday, October 23rd, 2006

So I’ve been crafting the info dump in the Noir Fairy Tale. It was coming together pretty easily. The main character dumping info is a bit of a scatter brain. He keeps wandering off the point, shinning light into bits of the story he isn’t being asked about. Then out of nowhere he showed speaks […]

Too Info Dump or Not to Info Dump that is the question

Monday, October 23rd, 2006

I’ve been struggling to decide how to handle the next step in the Noir Fairy Tail. The main character has made a trip from China to Britain to enlist an experts help. I could have the expert mysterious solve the heroes problem so he can carry on with the action in what would be a […]

Fairy Tale Noir: Confabulation

Thursday, October 12th, 2006

Last weeks New Scientist had an article about Confabulation, a memory disorder which cause sufferers to produce false memories. These memories can be mundane or exotic. The hero in my Noir Fairy Tale already has a period of amnesia in his back story, a condition frequently found in both noir and folklaw involving the folk. […]

Fairy Tale Physics

Monday, October 9th, 2006

I’ve been making sure the physics of my fairy tale world work today. Not as much fun as writing but since little dragon needs to exploit them in order to solve the case I need to make sure the rules make sense. So I’ve spent a lot of today mulling on entropy, brane theory, multiverses […]
