Favorite Site of the Month BadgeA few days ago I was catching some waves in these digital waters when I surfed up next to this unassuming blog… A Walk in the Dark.  I almost passed it by, until I noticed its tagline: “A look into the mind of a D&D content designer.”

“Sweet!  An RPG blog!  Gotta check it out…!”

So, I read their latest post.  Then another.  And then another.  The site isn’t flashy; it’s simple.  It’s not busy; it’s laid back.  I notice the author (David Flor) doesn’t post every day, or even every week, and that kind of reminds me of dessert – I can’t have it everyday, so it makes the whole thing sweeter when I can.

Here’s David:

“Originally, “A Walk in the Dark” was going to be the chronicle of designing my large scale 4th Edition campaign called “The Coming Dark”, but a lot has happened since. After getting more exposure to the D&D 4th Edition mechanic and getting a feel for what the public wants in a product, I have come to the conclusion that my original campaign was seriously flawed, so instead I have diversified and became a publisher of modules and other content under my company, Darklight Interactive.

My posts are generally that of a publisher trying to make his mark in the world, sometimes successfully and other times hitting some rather formidable obstacles (like a “cease and desist” order, for example). I am also a software developer, so I periodically post about applications I’m developing or would like to develop (like monster builders, the dice tools, etc.). All while looking ahead at D&D “Next” with a weary eye, just wondering what the licensing options are going to be and what I am going to be able to do with it as a publisher.

I admit I haven’t posted very often as of late due to personal “real life” circumstances, but I do my best.”

Your best is pretty good, so I’ll be waiting…

More awesomeness...

In Chris's opinion, the very best vices are dirt bikes, rock music, and gaming, while the very best medicine is fatherhood. If he could just learn to balance them all, he'd live forever. He's much more creative than intelligent, often wakes up belligerent, and ponders many things insignificant. Lastly, in an effort to transform his well-fed body, P90X, Roller Blades, and Food are all laughing at him. And the pain continues.
