Anyone who knows me is well aware of my passion for spreadsheets and formulae; not that I’m any kind of great mathematician (quite the opposite)- but I do really enjoy manipulating numbers and statistical work.
This week- beyond some bug fixes- the focus has been on balancing. Specifically on the diversity of the species, genders, ranks, locations, and classes of the core characters of the game.
A whole host of stats and tables have been created to help keep these things in balance, which has lead to some significant revision to the character backgrounds resulting in some new and interesting intersections to their stories that would not have happened otherwise.
Further to the stats, I’ve come up with some amusing naming conventions for locations and the characters themselves. Additionally I’ve mapped out where each of the characters will be starting. More story work needed next!
