Wednesday Weekly Update – 5th June 2019

What have I been up to this week:

  • Finished off content for Sci-Fi/Modern Antagonist concept quick generator
  • Have a full on derp moment when I realise I have not made a ship-name generator. The one I’m working on now seems to lend itself well to vessels of a pirate nature
  • Sort out the self-employed tax return – Surprisingly easy. Time-consuming making sure I had all the necessary information to hand, but very easy to file
  • Backed a Kickstarter I really want to be filled – The London Masters Guide  by Sean Hunt,  “A fantasy-themed tour book to England’s most storied city.”
  • Had a nice discussion on twitter about what being ASD is about, even if it was started off by a rather vulgar and misinformed article by another person
  • Watched Good Omens...

New Feature – Lists!

Oh look a blog post! The end times have come after all! Just a quick one to let you know I have started a new page called, imaginatively – Lists !

Unlike the generators, which take words and phrases and combine them in new ways to help prompt your imagination, these lists are for when you know the sort of thing you want, but not the precise details. You need a tree, but not bothered about the type, or you need a gemstone type and so on.

These will be added to on an ongoing basis and are simple to use. Simply press the button and the code will select a random entry from the predefined lists. That’s it! As time goes by more sections will be added and if required moved to new sub-pages.

The format *will* change over the next few months as I iron out issues and get things the way I want...

[Generator] – Squad Names and other stuff

There’s a new generator gone live over HERE. It’s about squad names and is suitable for military squadron nicknames, or gangs that want to have to sort of name.

As for the other stuff, well, I think it’ pretty obvious the blog is not the same as it was and despite my best efforts, due to RL concerns and so on I can’t keep up with things AND do the other things I want. Now don’t panic, the blog and site will not be going anywhere (barring technical or financial issues etc). But the post will for now, be semi-irregular. There will still be the Friday list, but I think having generators/list tools be the main focus is best for now.

In a way, this is a good thing, as I am busy doing stuff during the day and don’t have time for more blog items...

Back to the grindstone :)

Welcome into 2019, hope your new year was a good one. Will be streaming again tonight with “Just Cause 4”, assuming i can set things up correctly (at https://www.twitch.tv/mobiustempus in case you didn’t know at 6pm GMT).

In other news have found something interesting in random generator making – Perchance ( https://perchance.org ). It seems a much easier system for creating tables and using them compared to Java script etc, however it does have one possibly major flaw in that if the site goes down, the gen will stop working – Will admit I may have read the details wrong, but if there is a way around that, such as local hosting, then this may have to be the way new gens will be made going forward...

Last post of the year

As this is the last day of 2018 (and for some, by the time you read this it might be 2019 – in which case hello the future!) Just thought I’d say thanks for putting up with me and my shenanigans throughout the year. “Normal” service will resume around the 2nd January when I start posting properly/streaming again, with the newest episode of STA: Damocles on the 5th as well. I hope your year is a good one and may the dice roll ever in your favour!
