Horror Deck

While waiting for my wife in the car I planned a little of the background for Kendra and the Wolf Master. Trying to solve a few problems before doing some actual writing. Over the weekend have been sorting out the card game, need to add some more skills to the Horror deck or make some skill defeaters.

Today's joke is:

I have an inferiority complex, but it's not a very good one :(

I went to the Jumblies today. While having a cup of coffee and cake I came up with the idea to add more black cards to the deck, 15 altogether. I had a few ideas for extra cards at the pastor's house then went to Waitrose with my son for another coffee. While eating a biscotti and drinking my coffee I rubbed out some old cards and created 7 new black ones. When I playtested it it worked much better :)

Made up the 11 Arth cards I needed to make 4 decks, cut them out etc, then never got a chance to play it! Played Empire Engine at last (the P&P version I made for the club) and Catan again.

Wrote this piece of #FlashFiction while I was waiting for my takeaway:

I need three other characters for the special TEABAG set I am making for the Arth card game.

"Sorry, are you speaking to me?" asked Colonel Arthur Pendragon.
"Well not really," I replied.
"My batman?"
"Yes, Bateman the batman."
"The man who does your clothes, not the Dark Knight?"
"Of course, you've just got to say it correctly to understand, [bat-muh n], phonetically."
"OK then, who else?"
"Mike the mechanic?"
"That's a good one, you would need a mechanic, especially with an airship. I can also make jokes about the pop group."
"Never mind, what about the third?"
"The cook?"
"Yes, Cook the cook."
"All right then, that's three more characters that are not integral to the main story but are good support staff to have."
"So a good piece of #FlashFiction then, especially for #FlashFriday!"

Beyond Monopoly

I inked in Igraine and drew me but then found out that I hadn't done Battle Chieftain Arthur. So I drew him and scanned him in late last night and also formatted and printed out the first nine cards. You never know, I might get to test 4 decks at Beyond Monopoly on Friday night!

Rested most of the day, found Settlers of Catan (one of my Christmas presents) and learned how to play it by looking at YouTube. Also cleaned the Hoover out so I can (eventually) clean out the laser printer.

Today's joke is:

A man has died after falling into a barrel of coffee, it was instant!

Have been poorly over the weekend so done little. Drew two pictures on Friday and one today. Also read through ADC to figure out another two characters for the card game. One will be Igraine, Arthur's mother and the other will be the avatar of the Author, me!

Today's joke is:

The first time I got a universal remote control, I thought to myself "This changes everything."

Yesterday, meaning an hour ago, I managed to draw one drawing. I also scanned the 7 pictures in I had done already. Tried printing out the Mystic Warlords of Ka'a,. They look nice but they're the wrong size, I also need 50 sheets of photocard!
