And Now for Something Completely Different...

If a retro role playing adventure game where you can construct your own dungeons sounds interesting, then you might want to check out an old browser based game I just resurrected.  It is called SourceOfMagic, and it was a project of mine from the late nineties.  It used to be live at, but I accidentally lost the domain in 2007.  Since then it's been mostly dormant, but a recent fit of vanity and nostalgia motivated me to get it running again.  If you are a gamer who is into playing and creating RPGs, and you're not put off by a retro style, then you may want to give it a go.  It's free to play.  My character name is "Spuddo".  The game is richest in Internet Explorer but also works in Firefox.  I haven't tested Chrome or Safari yet, but it should work in those browsers too.

I have been making slow progress on the writing front.  I'm very happy with what I've written of Book III so far, I just wish I was farther along.  But (of course) I am going to keep at it.  I'm on the cusp of writing a very exciting part of the book, so my (writing) motivation level is rising.

I hope everyone reading this has had a nice January.  It just got really cold here in the eastern U.S., so that is taking a little getting used to.  But things are going well.


  1. Just made a character. Checking things out now.

  2. Thanks for checking it out, Scott. I will hook up your character with some goodies if you want to keep playing the game. I have to get more active in the Goodreads group. I've been a bit distracted lately.

  3. Give me some weapons that will make my cleric less useless in physical combat and I'll be happy. I haven't been able to finish a lvl 3 dungeon using a character that is more magic based.

    No worries about the distraction. I've been feeling similar for a bit now.
