It's all downhill from here!
I just wanted to share with you that I've done everything with my game except putting in the story lines. This is a major turning point for me! I'll be keeping my computer closed for a while to work on the story lines. I've had the story for quite a while now, but need to flesh it out and get very action specific. I work with index cards, and will plaster my entryway wall with them in order to see in sequence.
I just can't believe things are actually completed.... and alpha tested. Done are: all maps and main locations, opening sequence, obstacles and goodies in interiors not to do with story, SOME of the story especially in the interiors, NPCs not associated with story lines, news posts and connected events, all employment opportunities, sleeping, eating, all game-wide event arrays, dark and light books and pages to find, all crafting, apprenticeships, shops, items, mining, town gates, sound bytes, and so on.
I don't know if sticking it out will end up anywhere. But it's been fun.
