According to Thefactsite.com , Wednesday is “named after Woden, the most important God in the German Pantheon, and is often associated with the Nose God Odin. The name is derived from the Old English word Wōdnesdæg and the Middle English word Wednesdei, meaning ‘day of Woden’, reflecting the pre-Christian religion practiced by the Anglo-Saxons.” It is also the day I bring out the updates about things. Like right now.
No new PDF’s this week, but there is still the Itchi.io Lunar New Year Sale on for the next 5 days. Check it out here.
The next planed PDF as part of the “Quick Generator February” is about heist names, In the same vein as “The Great Train Robbery” .
The next one planned after that, one I am working on now, is not such much a generator but more a Helpful List, but related to names. The HL series was always a semi-good seller, but real-world names were proving harder to check up on and to make sure things were done right. But then, inspiration. Things like taverns, shops, NPCs etc, still need names and I have generators that can make them. Not everyone like using gens, but list can help spark creative just as well. The plan is to have at least 200 in each PDF, but that will vary from subject to subject.
Last weeks WA article covered the technological “twin” world , called by various people Westhalen . The idea of magic vs technology, or even magic and tech working together has always fascinated me and WH was the start of exploring those concepts
Streaming and Vids
- ESO – Hit a major milestone in ESO recently. Finally, after many streams, have done the base campaigns arcs!! Have taken a slight detour doing the Psijiic questline, which deals with temporal rits and other stuff. Which, after what Vah’len has been through (time travel, multiple versions running about at the same time etc), seemed appropriate and fitting – fixing the “damage” done before returning to the more strurected chronological way of doing things.
- Watch Party/Farscape.- oof last weeks episodes was both emotional and amusing. At the time I never noticed that such an emotional filled episode was followed up by a really funny one. This time I did and it made perfect sense. Hats of to both Claudia and Ben for their top notch acting and portrayal of what happened (kept vague on purpose in case anyone has not seen this amazing show)

The Foundry Project
Hit a bit of a mental wall with this – having to do some much-needed folder restructuring and file checking before I can continue as I realised if didn’t do this NOW, then it will cause major issues for me later.. But, as mentioned before, This is not a “must do this NOW!” thing, more of a “When I can work on this I will”. Sometimes, the thing about “Paralysis of choice/options” is very appropriate here.
Whilst some things are not progressing fast, others are going at a rate I am happy with. Have got to the point in life now, especially these last couple of months or so, where, generally speaking, I am not pushing myself hard. This, I feel, is working well. Yes Some things are slowing down, but other projects are getting done ahead of schedule and generally, its working. It’s always an ongoing thing, tweaking what I am thinking of as life settings here and there.
