But yeah, that's me as well. Though I'm actually working on doing something with a few of the ideas, so there is some hope still.

I used to do that too, but now, I just fall asleep.

I'd started writing rule for a SC RPG.

Let's see, I got notes for a DnD setting about a totalitarian sun-god, dwarves that spend their entire lives working on a tomb, gypsy paladin halflings hordes and a near-war between heaven and hell, I've got notes for a airship-based open-world RPG, I've got notes for a psychadelic adventure game that takes place in hell, I've got notes for a fantasy TBS and I've got notes for a silly RTS that revolves around a bear war.

I am utterly bewildered by game mechanics, but I like to think I have some passing skill at worldcrafting.

Game mechanics are tricky and to be honest way more over my head then I would normally admit.

Making up classes, abilities, story, and worlds though... that's the meat and potatoes.

I spent a very long time trying to figure out a grid pattern that was similar to, but not the exact same as Ogre Battles. 3x3 grid for your squad normally, had to alter.

I tend to come at it from either direction. In the case of the system I'm working on now I started off creating a more complex, multilayered version of Pokemon's attack system that prompted me to do a bit of worldbuilding to discover what I was gonna apply this to. I settled on a mon fighter about traditional mythological creatures, which resulted in a lot of the attack types turning into things that'd be relevant in that setting (blood, bone, silver, cold iron). Then I realized that most of the things that monsters are weak to aren't things that monsters would actually use, and I realized that what I'd really created was a fairly robust crafting system with three different levels (attack type, materials, and qualities) that could be used to create weapons to defeat said mythological creatures, but then I had to ask myself if I was just creating a normal fantasy game.

I jumped then to an urban fantasy setting where something is coming that has every living thing on earth with the slightest bit of sensitivity flat fucking terrified, and which has mythological creatures (or "others" as I've taken to calling them) fleeing the magic places of the world and the shadowy crags of mortal civilization they've been hiding in, in a mass exodus into human civilization. They don't really know what they're running from, or even where, it's basically a worldwide panic attack. Of course, critters like that invading normal mundane society is less than ideal for humankind, which is why it is convenient (if a bit worryingly ominous) that a number of legendary heroes have been reincarnated across the world. They don't properly recall who they are, but they're similar to their legendary selves and have some of their powers, and as they come together and battle against the others they slowly start to remember their old adventures (which in gameplay terms translates to them getting stronger as they fight). Eventually they can have an epiphany wherein they realize and accept their true identities and unlock their original powers (which basically translates to them evolving).

So I went from an attempt to complicate pokemon to an urban fantasy RPG with several dozen possible characters based on heroes of legend, all of which is predicated on a multitiered crafting system which encourages you to create weapons that match monsters' specific weaknesses.

I've never been a gourmand in any way. I find most food dull, to be frank. Eating is among the most overrated activities in the history of mankind, and if it weren't necessary for survival, I probably would've stopped eating ages ago.

Because of this I've never taken the time to learn how to cook. I know how to boil noodles, and that's about it.

But today I took a step way out of my comfort zone. For some reason, don't ask me why, I decided to try and make something with chicken, because chicken is one of the few kinds of food I enjoy eating. And I'd gotten a bit tired of eating only noodles and cereals for almost a year.

I combined my epic skills of noodle-boiling with my not-so-epic skills of preparing meat. And surprisingly enough, it didn't taste horrible! As a matter of fact, it turned out pretty damn tasty, if I may say so myself.

Here's a step-by-step series of pictures I took in the process.

Ugh. This awful excuse for a human being, Johanna, is being highlighted by Blizzard and MMO-C as an event bimbo for Dreamhack this year.

I shouldn't be bothered by this. I never really forgave people in general for becoming blathering morons when there's boobs involved. Doesn't really help that she's a foolish fool herself.

Spent most of the day being slightly disappointed in ESO, and then being extremely disappointed in myself for buying Simcity.

Bump!

Have had a slight fever most of the day today and last night. I am really hoping it burns out sometime tomorrow so I can actually attend Thanksgiving with family and attempt to mend my seemingly strained relationship with them.

I also really hope it burns off so I can catch up with my mountain of homework that's due this upcoming week... For those of you who are anti-liberal, you haven't actually SEEN liberalism until you've seen what this course is all about. I look like a damn tea partier by comparison.

Just came home. I've spent two full days at a Children's Hospital (ages 0 - 6) to observe and analyze attachment between infants and their parents, as well as the cognitive development of children aged two weeks up to about 5 years old. It's been exhausting, but very informative.

And watching the reactions of 1 year olds getting vaccines breaks my heart.

its odd isn't it, they acknowledge in their nature they need to attach themselves to parents to survive. forging a link for survival. and it just happens.

I find it curious how... For the lack of a better word, "useless" the human newborn is. Apes are at least able to slightly attach themselves to their parents and be carried around. The human infant is mentally competent, but can do nothing for it's own survival.
