Oh my blog! Whee!

Wrong by design

    Bleh. I’m tired, and I want to go to bed. It’s only barely 8 pm, though.

    I’ve been planning to start a conlang and try to fill it in using WordBuilder, and then blog about my progress here. Not entirely sure where that’ll take me.

    WordBuilder is the latest thing to make me go Whee! – It’s an application for building vocabularies, word lists, and other small tricks (I made a list of a town’s inhabitants with occupations and first and last names, for example)

    The WordBuilder main screen

    Fixes since 0.9:

    • Drop command now works, dropping from the end of the word.
    • Translate command now supports begin and end markers:
      Code:
      Translate {
        # a a => a
        a a # => a
      }

      Only removes double a’s at the beginning and end of the word.

    • The generate dialog now supports any number of starting rules.
    • The new Column directive allows you to show marks and branches as columns in the list view.
      Code:
      Column Title1 Branch1
      Column Title2 !Mark1
      Column Title3 Branch1.!Mark2
    • The new Leave command takes tokens off the word until the requested number of tokens are left.
      Code:
      Leave 2
    • WordBuilder now has an icon. Anyone want to make a better one?
    • The installer now asks where to install. Uninstall 0.9 before installing the new one.
    • New example project at http://whee.dk/wordbuilder/prach_eboch.wordo
    • Detail view now shows details for all selected words as preview of what you’ll copy with Copy details to clipboard.

    Download at http://whee.dk/wordbuilder/WordBuilder.msi – and please, please give me some feedback?

    AutoRealm is a nifty piece of software I stumbled upon in my search for a tool to make maps of Dunderhill.

    It’s free (GNU), open source (written in Delphi, though), and pretty cool.

    Below is my first map of Dunderhill made in AutoRealm.

    Well, it’s been out a couple of weeks or so, and I recently ordered this:

    D&D 4th edition core books

    Expected arrival is August 4, just before my last week of vacation kicks in. I want to RP again… sigh.
