Kids RPG Journal – #24 Catch Up

Process on the game has slowed down a bit as I’ve been playing catch-up at the day job from the holiday weekend. Oddly enough, the weekends are the hardest time for me to get personal work done.

I think it’s due to two reasons: First, I’m around the kids more and spend a lot of my time and energy. Entertaining 6-year-olds is a lot more labor intensive than web development. When I do have a break, I’m either doing chores, or I’m trying to recuperate. Even when they are playing on their own, I sometimes have trouble with focus because of the ambient noise.

Second, there’s no real structure with the weekends. We’re often going somewhere or doing activities that we can’t get in during the week, so I cannot get into a routine as easily.

That said, I made a couple of place drawings this week and worked on adjusting the players’ custom moves.

Yrlashof, jutland-style longhouse of Momma Yrla

Yrlashof, the first real location the players will visit. The long house of Momma Yrla. I based the design of the farm off of Jutland Viking structures, with a little fantasy embellishment.

Viking-style haystacks on Yrlashof

Viking-style haystacks. A sub-location (or zone, to steal from FATE) on the farm. It’s interesting to look into how different certain elements look from what I see in my life. I could get lost in researching how medieval and ancient peoples worked and lived.
