I’ve updated my Numenera generators as big, fat single page application. it’s still a work in progress (and consequently, some things have less features than before), but it has come together quite nicely and therefore I feel it’s ready for launch.

This year I chose to be a massive cheat for NaNoWriMo by both adding to an existing work and editing it. To double down on the cheating, it isn’t even a novel, but a sourcebook for one of my favourite roleplaying games, Numenera!

Over the course of NaNoWriMo, I wrote approximately 20k additional words on my project and did 30 hours of editing, resulting in a final word count for the project of 60883.

I’ve still got a lot of work to do. I need to do all the art orders, get the actual art, get the map made for it, do all the layout, get it properly edited by someone who is not me and then publish this bad boy. All these things will cost money because I suck at them and will need to pay someone else – so I guess my next task is actually finding people to do these jobs and rustling up the money to pay them.

So this morning I couldn’t be bothered to get out of bed, but I was bored, so what did I do?

I used my phone to ssh into my media pc. From there I installed x11vnc on the machine. Then I installed a VNC client on my phone. Then I used vnc to connect to the media pc so I could reconfigure some GUI software to provide a remote control interface. Then I installed a remote control app for my phone for the software, used it set up some tasks I wanted done in the background, then I streamed a movie from the media pc to VLC on my phone.

A lot of work so I can lay in bed and do nothing 🙂

Made a very basic character generator assistant for Numenera. You can find it here:
