Originally written 5/27/18: Gotta think about ammo a bit more. Like how much does ammo weigh? - Answer: more than I thought in some cases.

Originally written 5/23/2018: After building out the combat action chooser i am thinking that the interface doesn't seem to work very well. After choosing a combat action the player will have to click another button (or click the same button, but maybe in a different area) in order to start using the action. Fallout gets … Continue reading Electric Noir .plan #5

After a few moments the freezing water turned warm, then searing hot as the backup power system in the bottom of Wayne Tower started. Wayne Tower had enough reserve water to supply a small town for weeks. Bruce felt his muscles start to relax and soften with the warming water.

Just something to exercise my writing skills and hopefully develop them into something worthwhile. Kat had the upper hand early on in the fight. … Continue reading Fiction Friday: The Kitchen
Salmon is one of those foods that instantly transports me back home, to Maine where I grew up. I grew up eating mostly seafood, a benefit of both being upper middle class and living in a coastal town in New England. I preferred shellfish mostly though. Clams, Mussels, Scallops, Lobster, Crab, etc. I never got … Continue reading Pan seared salmon
