I should have written this update yesterday, but I've been tired and forgetful. Moreso than usual. I'm training for a commercial driver's license and I failed the road test last Thursday, which means I need to practice a little more and re-test. I find out the new date and time tomorrow. I'm anxious and distracted because I need this license, and I need to go back to working and having income for food, and rent, and paying bills. I've been unemployed for five weeks now, mainly to go to truck driving school, and I can't afford to be unemployed for much longer. If I fail the re-test I'll have to get a job somewhere while I plan to retake the test a third time. Like I said, I'm anxious.
All of this has been distracting. I haven't written as much as I would have liked. Right now my 'to do' list for OSRenstein looks like this:
expand Divine magic, need deities explained and universal spells (partially completed)
clarify contested skill checks
explain Backstab ability
define Game Time
add falling damage
get some monsters written up in here!
revise arcane spells? = spell power affects potency of spell, not duration
undead are mindless and hostile, afraid of the sun/bright light/fire
make mutation chart for spell misfires and consuming spell crystals
Hopefully I can get most of that done before Saturday. Meanwhile, more excerpts are incoming... or outgoing... expect at least one thing every week.
