And Done

1 Month. 26 Letters of the Alphabet. 16772 words.

What a month. I hope that this prompted some interesting thoughts for you and maybe showed some things from the Bible you had not had to think about before. I want to play and make good games in interesting worlds that reflect something deeper than just simple escapism. I want a better game and I want to explore interesting concepts within the game space because I think games offer a unique place to explore ideas and see how themes and concepts work out that other media can’t do as well. So I hope this helped to encourage you to take your games some place interesting and more challenging.

April 2014 A-Z Blogging Challenge

A-Z Challenge 2014I’m not one to generally jump into fad things or blog roll ideas, but I had been looking for something to challenge me and I love taking on disciplines that push me so I thought I’d give
the A-Z Blogging challenge a try this April.

Basically¬†over the month of April, I’m going to try to post every day except Sunday (so 26 days) and each day I’ll have a post titled for a different letter of the alphabet. I think this is going to be a bit of a challenging endeavor.

To give my challenge form and direction, I’m going to focus on finding some kind of inspiration for my games that comes from my faith tradition. I’m a Christian and the stories of the Bible and from the history of the Church can lend themselves to some really interesting adventure and character ideas. I’ve actually used many concepts or names from the Bible in my games in the past and I think it can have a very fulfilling place at my game table.

So I’m going to try my hardest to stay on top of this, and I’ve already got some fun ideas of where to go with some of the letters. So let’s see how this works.

EDIT: Here’s a total list of all the posts after the A-Z Challenge ended.
