NWN1:EE-project in a German school 02 - 1st meeting

Blog #2 - 1st meeting:

So here we go! Much of my current plan on how to proceed through this course has developed from numerous PMs with Jimdad55, where he shared his ideas end experiences, and from the course material they’ve been using - eg. the “National Progression Award in Computer Games”-paper for schools in Scotland and their course plans and tutorial approaches.

So the road for now looks like this:

1. Info on RPG and NWN1.

2. SHOW a demo to demonstrate basic mechanisms.

NWN1:EE-project in a German school 01 - Introduction

Blog #1 - Introduction:

NWN1:EE-project in a German school

I start with the words I’ve posted to the vault forum (https://forum.neverwintervault.org/t/nwn1-ee-project-in-a-german-school/... ), because they also fit here as an introduction to this project. So I quote myself:

Minor Rant

Over the past few months I've recieved messages via Discord asking why I have stopped uploading content?

In short, I haven't.  I said I would be seldom uploading.

While were on the subject im getting a little annoyed with the edit and format requests that then turn into complaints because I dont reply or stop.
I mean it's not that hard to convert flac to another format.  Also if you want something specific, learn to use a DAW!

-.-

Well, that aged well . . . (14)

"This will give them maybe 4/5 full weeks to complete their module".

 

Who knew?  When I wrote that in the last blog post all was well in the world, the sun came up about as often as it went down and my mind wasn't preoccupied with toilet paper. 

Moving Onwards

I just typed out a long post and the site decided to log me out and clear it all so this is going to be a much shorter version as I cannot be bothered typing it all out again.

As of today I will be seldom posting new content to the vault or forums, not that anyone would really care or notice :P
To make matters worse my file hosting has closed my acount and so all links on my forum post will no longer work.

Just to be clear I am not leaving the discord server or closing my account on the vault website.

Avendale

Available here on the Rollo Vault - https://neverwintervault.org/rolovault/projects/nwn2/nwn2modulesenglish/39/

A pretty typical introductory adventure for a new PC. 

Into the unknown

As some of you have seen we've, myself and Alhana, have taken to posting ideas in a thread on the forums. This should allow some freedom to throw ideas out there without cluttering the main site.

The past few weeks have been quite productive as well as dealing with splinters of past failures.

Were both quite taken with Disney's Frozen II, Alhana more so, and this has given rise to a direction, a plan and a theme to apply to all our current and future work together.
Now if I can just pursuade her to join the vault's discord... :D

The long run for Home (13)

Seems a while since I last updated this blog. For anyone coming across this for the first time or unexpectedly fear not. Single sentence synopsis upcoming.  

Daemons of the Mind

Maybe im just being paranoid, it's all in my head kinda thing but I am detecting a little resentment in the Discord server.
I mean I wasnt expecting a welcome back party, far from it, and I dont expect things could ever go back to how they were.
Just feeling a little nostagic these days.  I seem to remeber a small group of us singing xmas carols in voice chat just a few years ago... heart
You know who you are.

Know Your Audience

Firstly I do apologise if I ramble on here a lot however it really is helping.  Rather than posting a new project page of demos and such it would seem far more appropriate here.

Someone on the Vault discord contacted me recently with some very helpful ideas on methods to overcome creative blocks.
One such suggested idea was to aim as though creating material for an RPG or similar.  "Know your audience" as it was written.
I remembered I have RPG Maker MV and since then myself and Alhana have had non-stop ideas!  Amazing how such a simple method helps so much!
