It's been a long time...

Greetings all... Sorry for it's been so long since I've last written.

Due to some personal problems I have lost all the source code to the DMA and the Libraries. However, I do have my documentation and if there is still interest in this project, I was thinking of changing my focus..

Basically is anyone up for DMA (Or even Core Rules) on an Android Tablet? I may consider Apple, but one at a time...

If there is interest, Let me know ASAP.....

I'm just can't seem to get caught up...

Yes.. Yes.. Yes...


I know...


I am late posting the results of the last game.


Well I finally got to it. The update is in the forum......


Also, there have been reports that the new demo may not run on systems without the MS Visual Studio 8 runtime installed. This has appeared on XP systems. If you are having a problem, please let me know.

New Demo

Well all.. I finally did it.. I updated the demo with a new version that actually runs under Windows 7.


This demo still does not save. I am considering how to release the code that will include full functionallity. Will let you know when I do.

Another one bites the dust

For those unable to attend the last game.. We didn't have a last game..


One more month .. One more reason not to play.


We'll shoot for next month.. That will be May.. We'll see how that goes.

So much for great starts

We were supposed to play this weenend and I'd be bringing story updates. But we canceled due to lack of interest.


We had such a great start. After over a year of no games, we had two games back to back. Some of us thought it was going well and things were turning around. We'd heard for a couple of weeks that there were new players that would be joining us. But as it was in days of old, it seems only three of us can figure out how to count to the third weekend on a calendar....

Why is everyone in such a hurry

Posted by Little Dragon (LD) on February 21, 2011 at 12:56 PM Comments comments (0)

Well we started a new campaign this past saturday. With two DMs it makes it easier to allow us all to play.


Everything started off well. A runaway slave is caught, accidently freed and surprisingly runs away.


Villagers run away from the homes because of a zombie infestation.


Zombies run around like chickens with their heads cut off.


The group runs around trying to solve the puzzle.


And a child shall...

I should have gotten the storm windows

Posted by Little Dragon (LD) on February 21, 2011 at 12:53 PM Comments comments (0)

Well all windows are not the same. And as it turns out neither are all compiles.


I successfully loaded Windows 7 on the Little Dragon development machine and tried to load the last working build of DMA. As has been reported in other posts, it failed to start. I still need to find out why.


So I built a debug version to trace the problem and behold, that runs fine. So I'm going to have to go the old route of walking the code with log messages until I find o...

Could someone open the Windows

Posted by Little Dragon (LD) on February 16, 2011 at 5:58 AM Comments comments (0)

I am not sure what's worse... Being chased through a dark forest on a moonless night by a black dragon bent on eating me, or installing Windows.


But it's happened. The Little Dragon development machine has finally moved up and had Windows 7 installed. No longer is it running XP. So I can actually test and build with the latest Windows environment.


I am still using the old 2005 Visual Studio, but that can be upgraded easy enough. I may go with something mo...

Little Dragon now has a presence on FaceBook :


You never know where we will go....

It finally happened....

Posted by Little Dragon (LD) on January 17, 2011 at 9:52 AM Comments comments (0)

Wow.. It's been a long time since I was here.


We finally had a game this past saturday, and rumor has it we may play again next month. We'll see.


Would like to welcome our two new members.


With the renewance of playing, I have made a couple of minor changes to DMA. Not released as they don't really effect the demo. Still not seeing much interest in DMA or the CoreRules libraries, so I haven't been pursuing them very much. Would like to,...

Nothing much changes

Posted by Little Dragon (LD) on June 28, 2010 at 8:18 AM Comments comments (0)

Went to the beach this week. Got wet. Got sand in places people shouldn't get sand. Got 2nd degree sunburn on only those places I put sunblock. Though time goes on, it seems nothing much changes....


Just like the code. We did add a new member to the site today .. Yeppie.. But still I don't hear enough from anyone to drive me making the code more than just a demo.


If people are really using Core Rules and want it.. Spread the word and I'll release it. If n...

Keep moving forward

Have the routing setup for the new domain name. So now "" routes to this web site. I tried to do it as hidden, but that screws with some of the links so I just let it change the link. When we switch to direct hosting from our networks, that will be fixed.


I like the "little-dragon" name as the full name. More fitting.


New Domain ....

Posted by Little Dragon (LD) on January 11, 2010 at 6:12 AM Comments comments (0)

While I'm still setting up the routing et al, I wanted to let everyone know that I was able to obtain a new domain name. Originally I wanted a name that said "Little Dragon", but there were none available. I went through many variations until I finally came upon "ltldragon".


Periodically I have been checking for open domain names more along what I wanted and found the following :

Well better late than never.


At least I did it in January this year :D

I better get my reservations in now.


How time flys

Well it's been a while. Thought I'd write a little update. I've been busy taking care of the family and getting ready for Christmas.


We got a new little puppy. His name is Charlee, and he soooooo cute.


Still don't have all the decorations up, no time.


One of the players called and said he wanted to get everyone together to play, as I'm not setting up the games any more. It's been a few weeks and haven't heard from him or anyone else sin...
