Baby Foodness

We started Joy on solid food yesterday.

OK. It was a token effort. One spoonful of rice mix made it to her mouth. Right now, we are working on the concept that other things are food besides mommy. We have a whole new ritual to learn.

Thinking of Vecna, there's a 4e D&D coming out next year. That's big news in the game industry. Their direction seems very action oriented, which makes me feel somewhat smug. My own design work was going in the same direction. 4e means another SRD to convert. That's alotta work.

When I first started on Wikiworld, I modeled the writeup on the game worlds published by Wizards. Within two weeks, I had thrown out that model. The model is that a gameworld is administrivia. That is an incorrected model. A game world is full of places where your characters can do interesting things. The focus must be adventure oriented. Anything beside adventure oriented design leads to you bad decisions.
