Once More Into the Breach

November 01, 2009 by Adam in Dragon Age

Just to clear up some of the mystery of my last post, I'm in the process of getting divorced. Not having foreseen this particular life event, I was pretty incoherent for a few weeks. Strangely I seem to have adjusted and am working hard towards making my new life. My wife and I are relatively amicable, avoiding lawyers and generally agreeing on finances and child custody, so we're hoping for a relatively good divorce.

In terms of module making, I completely lost interest for awhile. In the last week, I've reinstalled the Dragon Age toolset and have cheerfully started writing dialog and making areas. It's a pleasant distraction during this transition and my son likes to help me work. The story is largely changed, but not entirely bleak. I'm hoping for moments of humor and hijinx as the player wanders through Nightmare.

I'm still not sure how much time I'll have to spend on module making. My current thinking is that I focus on story, dialog, and avoid some of the more time-consuming scripting systems I've done in the past. I'd love to do another card game, but we'll see what I can manage in the months ahead.

It feels good to be back and I appreciated everyone's notes and e-mails of support. They helped carry me though a hard time and I deeply thank you all.
