Macbeth the Usurper

Writing

I got some writing, errr, designing done while at the film festival today. Road movies played as I wrestled with the damned D6 system. (This is a horribly designed rulebook. The writer made some very poor decision on chapter placement and flow.) I finally figured out how to create a character. Mostly. Now I am designing rough templates for my early colonial adventure. I made some good headway. Eventually, I will have a full cast of musket wielding adventurers ready to take on the New World.

This all is important because I also need to design common NPC's and other challenges. I have some of the story ideas sketched out, but they now need fleshing out. I also want to riff out the adventures with Storyjen. She always adds interesting twists and jumps to the plots.
