A new gaming session – Kalesta in Houndsend

Some days ago I signed up with http://www.penandpapergames.com and posted a request for players. The next day I already got some replies saying that they wanted to play.

Yesterday we set up time for playing an adventure and as I have done with all players so far I started this adventure in Houndsend. The player called himself Kaleta and I asked him what background he came from. We established that Kaleta’s family had been murdered and their home burnt down. Kaleta was the only survivor and was now determined that he wanted to find out who and why they had did what they’d done. We also established that this made Kaleta a somewhat emotionally disturbed human who needed to make sense of his world. He has a very firm world view of what is right and wrong and will not tolerate bad behaviour from others. This you will notice if you read the adventure that I have will publish as a PDF in this post.

You can find the whole adventure here (5 pages)

  1. Is that the dump from 7th.pushingcows.se? I really need to improve that…maybe dump to HTML? Or at least a choice?

  2. Yes that is the dump from 7th.pushingcows.se. I think it serves its purpose though but if you have any idea on how to improve it we will all be happy=). Do you mean HTML as in formatting with HTML tags? Most places on the internet now a days don’t seem to like those tags, only css but that is my layman guess, actually I don’t really know what I am talking about. The only other option I can think of is PDF but I don’t know if that is possible.

    But of course if there is a way to format the text maybe that can be something to implement. I must say though, that it is a really nice program that you’ve made, 7th.pushingcows.se that is.

  3. Yes, HTML as in HTML-tags. CSS is out of the question, although it’s used to define how the markup is to be displayed it isn’t possible to use it without the HTML-tags (since we need to mark something up).

    To dump to PDF I’d need to dump binary text in the window, for the user to save out…and my PostScript-programming is kind of rusty…

    But a choice of dumping to 1) raw text, 2) HTML, and 3) BBCode-formatted would be feasible.

  4. You know more about this stuff than I do so I trust your expertice. BBCode I have never heard of but it sounds interesting so these three options would be brilliantos

  5. BBCode: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bbcode

    I saw that the Obsidian Portal supports basic HTML-tags, so I will focus on basic HTML-tags for starters!

    • I think that is a good choice. I saw that BBcode has not been standardised yet so HTML should be better. And thank you!
