all of your gaming criticism is bullshit

I haven't been posting very much lately and that's largely because I keep getting distracted with real life. I'm unhappy with my job, I feel like I don't get enough sleep, and whenever my finances look like they're bouncing back I suffer some inane setback (last week it was my car that needed an injection of $400). I've been working on a few projects for gaming here and there, but haven't been able to adequately finish one to my liking.
  • mind flayers as a playable race for 5e, my latest idea and has the least amount of work done on it (I just started writing it last night)
  • alchemist class for 5e, I've written this scrapped everything and started over then written it again three times now, each time what I've written just doesn't feel like it stacks up against the other classes in terms of balance of power
  • dark elves for LotFP, its not what you think (this one's almost done)
  • my last two sessions of Dwimmermount 5e, I recorded both of them so I wouldn't have to take notes but I just haven't listened to the sessions and written them up (yet)
  • the Cities on the Mountain (not the final name), a megadungeon I've been thinking about for a year (ever since I wrote up the Hidden Fortress) and started drawing maps for this week, I was inspired to finally start working on this project together because of Arnold K's Districts of Lapidir posts (won't see the light of day until I have something solid to share)
  • Hexvouna, a dungeon I have scattered notes on (I should probably cannibalize this project for the megadungeon above)
  • Dwimmermount monsters written up with 5e stats, for the ones that aren't in the 5e Monster Manual (ongoing)
  • deities as stories, an evolving inner monologue about deity descriptions
Each is a work in progress, hanging in my blogger posts as drafts that await finalization and publishing.
