Valley of the Sun

Normally I try to stay away from prefacing every late blog post with contrived openers like, "Sorry for disappearing, I've been super busy!", especially when it feels like every blog post I write is late. That would get old pretty quick. That being said, I've been really, totally busy. Seriously. I moved from the blustery Saint Paul, MN back to the oven that is Phoenix, AZ. It was tough leaving my girlfriend back in the Twin Cities, but she'll be jumping back into the oven with me in August, so it's not too terrible. The move could have gone more smoothly, as USPS lost my library of books (the likes of which I'll probably never see again, RIP books). Regardless, I made it back to Phoenix relatively intact and had a wonderful time seeing my friends again.

Fast forwarding a bit, I needed a vehicle and a decent job. I found both in the last month; I'm now the proud owner of a Yamaha Star Bolt motorcycle and Northern Arizona University's new Multimedia Technical Designer. Needless to say I'm pretty pumped to begin working at NAU with such an elite team of people, and in a position that pulls in development, design, and curriculum.

You're probably thinking, "That's all well and good, Andy. But this has nothing to do with anything that I remotely care about." Hypothetically speaking, of course, as I don't think anyone actually  reads my blog. Nonetheless, hypothetical reader, you'd be correct. So let's jump into some fun stuff!

HeroCraft has some newer art. Below are Quicksand, Mor'Xeth, and Stoneskin by artists Odom Keo, Dima Goryainov, and Mike Messer respectively. I've had to put a temporary hold on art consignments as I moved and became resettled, but more are in the pipeline!

I recently made some more rules adjustments to help streamline the game; my goal is continuing to scrutinize the mechanics and interactions and remove overly-complicated parts. We held a playtest last night to great success. My next step is going to revisiting my designs for the rulebook, so expect that in the future!


  1. Then I would sit and watch somebody sit right behind me and play the same game and hit so many bonuses RIGHT AFTER I FINISHED PLAYING! However, when switching again to the paying cash slot video games, it was at all times whittling no matter I deposited away with none substantial wins in any respect. This I documented and found over some time that the wins I initially procured had been taken again threefold. Have you ever been steadily successful playing in} sure amount|a particular amount|a sure quantity}, e.g., $1, bet365 so that you determine to guess extra to win extra and improve your guess per spin to $2. The machine "instantly" stops paying and turns into deader than a Dodo bird! Strange, isn't it, considering slots are imagined to be so-called "random" .

  2. The same goes for the treatment the shopper knowledge is given. But it’s additionally very useful and full of tiny particulars, similar to choosing totally different ‘depths’ as a substitute of the old, boring ‘sections’ in different roulette sites. It really feels you’re going back in time to the Roaring 20’s. With that being stated, the location was surprisingly modern-looking and very easy to navigate especially on 1xbet our cellular gadgets.
