Lord of Ultima

Just today I discovered Lord of Ultima, a web browser based game. Besides the fact that it has really nothing to do with the original Ultima game series (other than it’s namesake), but it’s still kind of a neat game concept. It plays a bit like a simplified version of Age of Empires with players…

Neverwinter Nights Mod

I wrote a story that I want to make into a Neverwinter Nights mod, la-de-da.  It’s part of my new strategy, as to landing a decent job… maybe.  Unfortunately, this game won’t be out until spring (*praying*), so I have no idea if it’s even possible for me to create this mod.  We’ll see…
