    I like to make webazines with the art
  4. Webazine

    A few years back, a friend (then more of acquaintance to me) saw my early comics and stories, and mentioned something about Webazines. I hadn’t heard of one, or had memory of the name/word so he kindly explained what he was talking about for me. I have created a channel on youtube, for the purpose of telling stories in a webazine format, with sounds, oration, art, and music. I have planned 34 episodes for this year, so I can take a rest to work on more works. Not every year will be as often or as many episodes. For 2018, my schedule makes it so every episode is released on every Monday. I am using my collection of Fairy Tales, which I created for a world building exercise of a planet which is within my universe/collection of manuscripts. The first 5 episodes are already on the channel. Story Time With Wookie. So far there are no hangups for creating the content, but I try to keep subscribers updated if I can’t meet my deadlines for the channel. The process is basically, edit the manuscript, no matter the draft its in (especially these works, as they are my earlier ones and I can’t say I was as skillful an author as I am now, just happens). Record the audio for the story (basically reading the manuscript). I have started doing each paragraph in takes which I had not been doing earlier. It has helped a lot with consistency and reducing mishaps in reading. Then I spend the rest of the day I record, drawing the story art, going as long as I am able til I need to sleep. The next day I compile it in Vegas Pro 14 which I received from a humble bundle and haven’t regretted the cost yet. Generally I have enough time to find a listener for feedback before I release it on the channel. The format has gone through changes. For instance, the first episode has no Title nor credits. It was just oration and pictures. Thanks to some kind viewers from around servers on discord and twitch, was given some suggestions for the content, which greatly helped in the end. Not all of the 34 stories were ever critiqued, I only showed maybe 11 of them to anyone for edits/critiques. So it’s a bit of a process for some of them, which I imagine will be fun either way. Some of them were however shared on places like FWO (Fantasy Writers .Org) which is a great community that works on reciprocation. One particular individual gave me a promotion on their blog and I was so thankful, it is the reason I believe, that any of my writings made sales at all. This also means, I am no longer distributing works through Ebook or Carbon Copy. For whatever reason, my last ebook I wanted to publish, my self publisher gave me a hassle and I had no idea how to resolve the issues they brought up. So I closed my accounts, deleted my content from their servers and started the channel on youtube. There are still some stories on the writer’s forum. I haven’t posted all of them, but basically you just need a free account if you really want to see the written words. I plan on doing some more complex type works in the future. 2019 is likely going to be featuring 3 mini series, and perhaps a four story collection. It’s a toss up with the collection and another shorter collection. But my plans for the art are a lot different from the 640p works I am doing for this year. To give you an idea for what I mean, This is the latest character I have introduced into my universe, and the style of the art I want for his story. This means I will be going a lot slower on the episodes. likely the season will go as long as the 2018 one is planned for, just with more time for the works. That’s just one scene of a paragraph and it took 4 days to get to that point, and I’m still not 100% satisfied with it. I’ll find out if it’s possible with a monthly release. If anything I could do 10 scenes in a month’s time of work, it’s likely to be only 7 or 8 scenes, as I will need more time for other things. Aside from the issues with my self publisher, I have made the decision to publish all current and future works on youtube for a few reasons. One is mostly the way the domain works for content and revenue. People would not have to purchase any of my works, and still enjoy them, and I have the opportunity to earn based off views and subscribers, so that’s something I consider a lot more fair to content creators and fans. There are some issues with hosting it on youtube that I could see arise. For instance, I wouldn’t want the younger audience the ability to consume my more mature audience type of works. Of coarse I can warn about it and use age restriction for them. But I just imagine some parent’s account subscribed and a child watching thinking its safe for them. I have no intentions of drawing the really demented scenes, especially any that could be traumatizing to victims of sexual assault. I currently don’t have plans to use my art created for older works. Basically anything drawn before winter of 2017 is not going to be used in the episodes. There is going to be what I hope are major improvements in my art. I did recently purchase some books on traditional animation, so I have plans for some animated features in the distant future. I really don’t want to recycle the stories for that sort of thing, so it will be a new story or set of stories. I hope you enjoy the works should you decide to surf-in and check the stuff out. So far it’s a very fun process with much enjoyment for me as an author and artist and musician.

  8. Story Time with Wookie

    sorry missed the monday update
  9. Story Time with Wookie

    Right. My family and friends know me as the wookie. I wanted to tell stories to the world, and publishers that distribute on amazon make it really difficult and I don't have the patience to learn the skills to be approved anymore. So I am distributing my literature as audio books on youtube. I make the art, and stories and give the reading.

      PhoenixSoul

      Well, that's cool.

  14. Elohan Chronicles

    So this is the earliest final version of a test project for Elohan Chronicles. Basically worked through some algorithms for behavioral AI of npcs. To make it look less scripted and more intelligent to a point. Bare bones its just a sort algorithm, pathing algorithm, conditional branches, finite state machine, and finite location memories for a s imple decision tree. The player can observe the behaviors by right clicking an object such as a bird or flower. Middle wheel to scroll through items for placement on map such as tree or bird or flower. Left button to place objects, timer restricted once per 5 seconds. Mouse only controls, recommended external three button mouse. Known issues: The birds are stupid biomeday4.zip
  15. Elohan Chronicles

    Abstract: [spoiler = "Abstract"] The game is about clicking and winning with good luck chuck. Im no good at abstracts. [/spoiler] Genre: [spoiler = "Genre"] It's a Homebrew DND clone. Definitely not Roguelike [/spoiler] Game Progression: [spoiler = "Game Progression"] So it's nearly a third finished for the demo release in spring. Other than that, I have no idea how to calculate the overall stuff. Like, It's not finished? [/spoiler] Story: [spoiler = "Story"] The player finds themselves in the Khimra territories, seeking to empower their people with the vast resources available to the chimera folk. The end goal being the claiming/reclaiming of Kowan territories, to which the Khimra have remained neutral over. The first task of gaining support from the Khimra is important to the rest of the story. From there the player is free to continue the major storyline, or do side quests, or anything common to DND. The player must learn the secrets of the Elvish folk in pairing with a Drac-folk. The end result being a clash of powers and a new world. [/spoiler] Setting: [spoiler = "Setting"] The universe is set on a fictional planet called Elohan . The game takes place on a continental region called M’rak. There are many races and factions in the region. Many different modes of magic are also available to all races some races granting bonuses. Many gods are also present in the world. [/spoiler] Character: So there will be two race options, and 4 class options. Kowan: Vowtuh [spoiler = "Vowtuh"] [/spoiler] Nijo: Bahtu [spoiler = "bahtu"] [/spoiler] Screenshots: [spoiler = "Screenshots"] from the development of the radial menu system for interactions. from the development of a fort and interiors of buildings. the first 6 races I drew and their realistic representations in the game. [/spoiler] Features: Mouse only controls. Rolls and checks on hopefully everything. Character customization. Somewhat advanced AI mechanics for what will feel like a real world. DND style combat. The ability to alter the world, within the confines of the game's rules.

      I find that even if I feel just plain uncreative, starting work on any project (whether it be a game or story) makes me feel inspired again.

      I dont actually make games. I start them and abandon them after I talk about them.

    4. Kayzee

      I know what that' like, trust me. My advice? Don't try and come up with an awesome idea for a game to work on, just make a project for you to experiment with. Fiddle and fiddle over time, see what works and what doesn't, don't hold yourself to a deadline or an overall plan. If you want to write a story, just write whatever comes to mind without worrying about where you are going with it. Later, if you come up with anything good and a bigger idea takes shape in your mind, then you can refine what you have done and work it into something more complete or at least start over with much more of a real plan and experience.
