Gaming

I will be developing the world of Urgewalt (Elemental Force in German) in all of its glory, while hopefully exploring it with my daughters Hannah and Amelia is they are interested / old enough for play Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition.

Campaign World

I have already been using Fractal Terrain pro to generate global maps and climate for Urgewalt. Once this base layer has been completed to my satisfaction I will focus on a single continent and then on to a couple of countries / areas for more detail.

My most recent work on Cathava can be seen here in Cathava Mapping.

World Building Guidebook

I am using the World Builders Guidebook, an old book from TSR to help with the decision making process while building my world. As I am developing information it will be stored in the Campaign Notes page until such time as I can add it to the wiki in the correct location.

External Resources

A "Black Speech" to English dictionary and phrasebook, I am using this for my "Goblin" language: - http://www.angelfire.com/ia/orcishnations/englishorcish.html

Goblin dictionary is where I have copied most of this information.

Coding

Using a mixture of PHP,XML,CSS,Javascript and MySql while working around the excellent MediaWiki structure I hope to construct a means to store and develop my Dungeons and Dragons musings.

Having just got an Apple Mac .. I might write an initiative manager for the iphone.

Monster Extension

This MediaWiki extension will take a ".monster" XML formatted file from the D&D Adventure Tools Program and render it into a standard display block ala the Monster Manual.

Notes

Possible to read the XML file first to get the header info for display .. and then parse again for the rest of the data output.

so first pull shows the green header in the Table

Second shows the content of the monster.

It would show a More cohesive approach. .. also remove the "hide/Show" and merely tap the title on the iphone .. not sure about normal browser.

iTracker

Track and manage initiative on your iPhone ... Will support timed mode to keep combat moving quickly.
