My latest W.I.P

Post by Lazzah »

After a couple of weeks of writer's block, I have finally had some inspiration and have recommenced work on a game I started a while back, THE DWARF OF DIREWOOD FOREST. It is set in the world of Alaric Blackmoon and features Grimmelmulkinsson - Grim for short - the dwarf that featured in Part 2 of "The Axe of Kolt".

The plot is that Grim has volunteered to try to rescue some of his clanmates who are being held prisoner by a rival clan of dwarves, the Turdrocks, who dwell in Direwood Forest. It is set before the time of Alaric Blackmoon so he won't be appearing in this game. Someone else from those games might, though!

I am hoping that working on this game will give me some inspiration for the other WIP I started a while ago, THE EURIPEDES ENIGMA, which has also ground to a halt.

Hi all, even though it is summer in the UK and it has been very hot the last week or so I have been staying cool and working on my WIP, "The Dwarf of Direwood Forest".

Latest stats are:

File Size: 112.8.KB
Locations: 66
Objects: 159 (24 Dynamic)
Tasks: 433
Characters: 6
Events: 7
Variables: 69

Total Items: 740

Total Editing Time: 256 Hours, 49 minutes.


That might seem like a lot but I often leave the game open while I go and do something else, sometimes returning to my laptop hours later having forgotten it was still on!

One trick is to have the football (or some kind of sport) on TV while you are working on your game. My partner hates football and goes and does her own thing while it is on. :wink:
