It is events and interesting posts from our corner of the OSR. Could be links to previous posts here at The Tavern or from other blogs in my "I read their blogs" circle or other stuff that strikes my fancy. Just call me "Mr. Fancypants"
Probably the biggest news and biggest scare around the OSR this past week was Chuck Wright's hospitalization and amputation of his lower leg. You can read more about it on this Tavern post, as well as where to make a donation and the gift pool that has been donated to reward donors to the cause. If can give, please do.
I love the subtle use of colors on +matt jackson 's maps, and this week's pick is no exception. So, who has the app or program that turns the unskilled into master mappers? Seriously, Matt and Dyson are mappers to watch, and I do.
+Tim Shorts over at the Gothridge Manor has an interesting article on Developing a Plan on the Go. Even more interesting to me as I see some of the thinking that went on when Tim and the rest of the "B Team" playtested some StarSlinger for me. It's a "thinking" article, which doesn't seem to apply so much to the "A Team". Their motto seems to be "consequences, schmonsequences - as long as I'm rich" ;)
That's all for this week. Well, all for this week's roundup. More posts to come later today...
