Composing music is sort of like magic to me

Composing music is sort of like magic to me. Other than a summer as a teenager taking piano lessons and singing silly songs to my kids, I've basically steered away from anything that vaguely resembles making music. That's probably why I'm so impressed that Magnus turned out a great little piece of music that goes along with the introductory movie. It makes all the difference and I'm quite happy with it.

I put in some time yesterday doing some more henchmen dialog. It's one of those things that most people will feel I can't get enough of and I suspect they're right. This one is at the very end of the game, optionally switching to a final end camera sequence if the player chooses to. I also give them the choice of puttering around in town if they missed anything, though by then the main quest is over. As for the dialogs themselves, I have two down and two to go, though they're actually pretty fun to write.

I also worked more on the second struggle area, having my martial arts students do a little practicing. It's fun to see them show off their new animations on the practice mats as well as providing a bit of ambiance to the place. Once I finish the henchmen conversation, I'll want to switch to the conversations in this area.
