Friday Update: Colemak, OSR Swag and more
WritingI'm learning Colemak, an alternative keyboard layout. Full immersion, so typing is a lot slower than usual.
Patience. Supposedly, Colemak is so much better than QWERTY. But we can debate about that. Thus, I just do it for fun and to train my brain.
Upcoming ReviewsI'm slowly hacking away at an article about Low Fantasy Gaming, an OSR/D&D5e Hybrid. I also snagged a review copy of Heroic Fantasy, yet another hack of The Black Hack.
This book provides an all-in-one package to play heroic fantasy games of wild combat, fiendish monsters and powerful magic. Heroic Fantasy uses simple and accessible rules that blend traditional and indie flavours into an appetising experience.
