Aw man, now my heads too swollen to fit through my office door :-)

Seriously though, it's just something I knocked up because I thought it would be useful for ME, only afterwards thinking about tidying it up for the webpage. I find it bloody useful, but of course it's of limited application unless you're a GM who has a PC or laptop nearby while running a game, as I like to.

The most difficult part was calculating mouse zones so that the program would know what zone you were pointing at on the picture. It turns out that it was good experience though, because I was able to use that newly learned skill to good use in the charafcter generator I've been (slowly) working on - instead of just typing in your nationality, it brings up the map of Weyrth and you can mouse-over the picture, seeing information about each country as your pointer touches it, and then you just click on your selection. It's pretty cool really :-)

Don't know when it'll be finished though.

Brian.

Any chance of doing that?  And for thsoe expensive to publish books too?  I don't know about anyone else, but I'd buy a pdf/CD and a hardcopy.  That way i can use it on the laptop, and have something for the players to look through.

By the way, just grabbed the TROS quick start.  Excellent work, and it certainly did its job.  Once the budget loosens up, I'll be ordering a copy of the full meal deal.

Best,

There's more new stuff on the Page.

(1) There's a QuickStart Character Sheet by Richard Fortuna [tunaman9000@yahoo.com] up now at www.theriddleofsteel.net/support

and

(2) There's the early draft of my current Pet Project, La Famiglia, up for viewing as well. It's not currently linked anywhere on the site, so go straight to it at http://www.theriddleofsteel.net/otherstuff/lafamiglia.htm

There's a discussion going about it in the Indie Game Design forum.

We updated the Character sheet download to match what's in the book, and replaced the Sorcerer's reference sheet with Ben Moore's more functional one.

Hey Jake, you uploaded the wrong ones. I just emailed the newest ones to you so you don't have to hunt around for them.
