Seriously loving AutoREALM

I've been working on the Scarred Lands web site, making adventure modules, and I'm not very good at maps. Maps are important for a module however, you really need good ones. AutoRealm seems to be my answer for this lack of talent on my part.

The only problem you might have is that it has an Access violation on Windows Vista, but then, what doesn't have an access violation on Windows Vista? Microsoft has forgotten, it seems, that an operating system's purpose is to run programs! If it doesn't run my programs, then it is not an operating system.

Anyway, I'm trying this software out and so far (on WinXP) it works very well. Making up some libraries for the Scarred Lands shouldn't be much of a problem either (city symbols and the like).

It would be nice if I could figure out how to put the existing (poorly made for game play) Scarred Lands maps in the background and trace it with this program. That would be very cool. I could make maps like that Mithril one out there (the one that is in French) for the other cities, like Shelzar and Burok Torn. Well.. maybe not like Burok Torn, that is a fairly complicated map.

The Lies of Dr. Peter McCullough

McCullough, M.D., MPH   for allegedly spreading COVID-19 misinformation under the Baylor name in media interviews.

The Bleeding Corpse

The Bleeding Corpse:  Your MC comes down the wooden stairway, that was old when he was born, and into the cellar of the house. He descends into musty smells, feeling layers of dust and dank as he submerges into the thick air. A single naked, low watt light-bulb hangs over the laundry area to the right, On the smooth cement floor inside that lonely pool of light lays the body of Mrs. Katt. Blood is dripping out of her eyes like tears... Your character better rush to the phone and call Emergency help. Now! Go! Because Mrs. Katt is still alive!

Biden Losing His Mind and ... WAIT! There's More!

We are currently inside the grips of a pandemic that has been going on in the U.S. since January of 2020. Right now we are in the Delta phase , and heading toward a yet to be understood Mu phase .   Yesterday, ~500 people died in the state of Florida. The daily average is 350, a day. Not a week or a month. Every day .  These days most of them are young.
