Random List – 20 Coat of Arms Descriptions

A coat of arms is an heraldic visual design on an escutcheon (i.e. shield), surcoat, or tabard. The proper description may seem a bit odd to some people, but they do their job well.

The list below is a preview as well of an upcoming addition to the Empire Builder range of PDFs. I am not sure yet if I

No chunk of Sci-fi today.

As with yesterday, no chunk of sci-fi today, as am compiling and formatting the various chunks, and having to correct a rather silly error I did when, instead of saving and exporting a cover for volume one of “Mission Outlines” for my patrons, I instead exported and exited, without saving…I R twit…

No Chunk This Week

There is no new chunk this week as I am compiling the previous volumes. There probably won’t be one next week either as I am working on making a dungeon/room tile randomiser. Combined with the tiles/map maker from Inkwell Ideas I mentioned yesterday it’ll be used to make a room suitable for a dungeon, castle etc, along with some details about the section. More details as and when they are ready.

This won’t be replacing the Chunk series but will be put into the rotation with it, so every 10 weeks or so it will swap to the next in the series, Chunk-Tile-Chunk etc I’m also trying to decide what to do to expand Sci-Fi Thursdays as well. If I can’t come up with anything I am happy with, Thursday will also be a map/image day as well and I’ll see if keeping it sci-fi themed will be feasible.

[Resources] – Hexographer, Dungeonographer and Cityographer from Inkwell Ideas

Today, for Resource Tuesday, I present not one, not two but THREE mapping programs from Inkwell Ideas. Each is a mapping program used to make a variety of maps. Very soon, probably in the next couple of weeks, I’m going to be using these to make some map tiles. These tiles will eventually be compiled into a publication with a view for selling and maybe printing, so I thought it only fair to share with you the most excellent programs I’m going to be using.

Each of these programs has a free version so you can try them to see if they are suitable for your needs, with paid versions available if you do for a fair price.

Rather than going over everything each program can do, I’ll post the highlights here, taken from the various sites features lists, and encourage you to give the trial versions a...
