dust it off, dress it up, make it nice

Welcome to my new blog. It’ll be replacing my old LiveJournal as the means through which I publicize my writing. We’re still tuning things up, but a few features are in play.

So! Let me show you around the place.

As you see, I have a number of story pages in this blog, devoted to my individual major writing projects. Each one introduces the story project and links you off to more information about it. I’ll be adding new pages for each new project beyond my current one, anachronauts. Should make it easier for new folks to get into things.

Also, I’ve aliased stefangagne.com to pixelscapes.com. I’m hoping to flat out replace one with the other in the near future. The goal is for both to work fine to access the same pages, so no links break.

So, what’s changed, blogwise? For over a decade I’d been using LiveJournal. It was a decent blogging setup, and had a good community, but the amount of crashes and failures it’s enduring convinced me that it’s finally time to migrate away. Still, I’m going to be crossposting links to new blog posts into my LJ, so folks who really wanna keep following me there will be able to. I’m also trying to import my LJ posts into here as a legacy archive, but having no luck yet due to the DDOSes. Maybe later.

Thanks for coming along with me on this new leg of my journey. Hope you have a good time here.

Third!

…this can’t too much farther, mind you. I disabled nested comments after 5 levels, to keep it from getting super-narrow, but hey. :)

I’d love to see what you could do with a decent game engine. Somebody should hire you, or something. ;)

I do some Architect mission writing for City of Heroes. Problem is they have a limit to the amount of stories I can write there. It might be lifted when the game goes Free to Play later this year, though, and they start looking for ways to make money by selling more story space.

Generally, I’m a bit soured on game development. It’s incredibly complicated and technical, prone to engine bugs and restrictions which hurt my ability to tell a story, requires a wider skill range than I have, and just takes way more time than I want to devote to it. I eventually stopped NWN modding because it was 10 times harder than writing a story like I’m doing now.

Nice lookin’ website you got here. It’d be a shame if something were to happen to it….

…unless the thing happening is “incorporation of an RSS feed”, in which case I’d celebrate. I want ALL the people I used to follow on LJ to get RSS feeds.

There is an RSS feed, or at least my Chrome browser shows the little RSS icon thingy in the address bar and I was able to subscribe to it in Google Reader.

Perhaps there’s an option that can be turned on to show an explicit link.

Yep, there’s a feed. It’s standard issue with all wordpress blogs.

I think it’s:
