Have I really not changed anything here in four and a half years? No. But, for whatever reason, I have failed to keep this activity log updated. Here are a few things I have done recently.
Here is the page describing the Plane Dancer prestige class for V3.5 D&D. This is an epic-level class intended for a character who has completed all 10 levels of the Fochlucan Lyrist prestige class from The Complete Adventurer.
I have collected the various mechanisms for characters to create Demiplanes in V3.0, V3.5, and Pathfinder. The purpose of this was as input for my adaptation of the Planewalker 10 demiplane seed ability into a more modern planar sanctum ability for Plane Dancer 10.
My character Brianna is currently adventuring in The Darkest Hour, an epic campaign. We expect one additional epic module after that, which will result in she and her companions achieving Divine Rank 0 and thereby becoming immortal "quasi-deities". I expect that Brianna will be CL 31 at that time, and she and her companions will retire as actual Player Characters. Just for fun, I have imagined The Divine Brianna's progression to CL 45/Divine Rank 1 (Demigod), CL 65/Divine Rank 6 (Lesser Goddess), and CL 80/Divine Rank 11 (Intermediate Goddess). I used the divine rules from Deities and Demigods (as updated to V3.5 in the SRD), as well as epic feats, feat points, and the "magic rating" variant rule from the SRD that our campigns use.

I uploaded a photograph of my two kittens, Pombi and Loki, as they were at 10 weeks.
August 12, 2008
I finally published my page on Sheri Tepper's World of the True Game.
January 29, 2008
I added a page showing Thalia Took's Goddess Oracle Deck.
November 16, 2007
I added a page documenting how to display Runes using Unicode.

I programmed my Dargas Adventure Database to generate an HTML table. I installed the very lengthy result in a page of Dargas Adventures.
June 2, 2005
I just switched my Web Hosting provider. I now have room for a hundred times as much file storage, as well as many additional website options. This change will allow me to install local DB-based message boards, and such.
I migrated the whole site over and there shouldn't be any visible changes. But if there are, let me know!

With his permission, I have installed a copy of Ryk E. Spoor's Wish Power List. As far as I can tell, this is currently the only accessible copy left on the Internet. It's AD&D, not V3, but it's well done and thought provoking. Ryk says: "I try to run Wishes as they were in legend and story, not as spells, even if they are spells."
March 25, 2005
I added a Gallery of Minifigs to display the work of my talented fellow players.
January 30, 2005
I added my treatise on Variant Rules for Metamagic. Actually, I did it a couple of days ago, but version 2 of the document is up now.

Veracity and I both write up raw notes for the Dargas campaign. Yoshi and Nessey both publish raw notes for the Tarrastra campaign. When I write up the "story" for either campaign, I pull from all available accounts. Since the raw notes are interesting, I now provide a link from each story page to a page containing the notes.

I published a link to my Campaign Survey on the "rpg" index page, since I worked hard on it and I think it's good. Random visitors to my web site can even take it, if they wish. :)
November 26, 2004
I've continued adding raw adventure logs to the City of the Spider Queen page. But, now that the party has finally arrived in Maerimydra, I actually wrote up the Arrival at Maerimydra and Initial exploration in Maerimydra sessions as "stories". Whee!

It looks like a long time since I made any updates, but, not so: I just forgot to update this page to describe them. In brief:

There's actually been a whole bunch of hidden activity on this website in recent months, as I prepare for opening my new campaign. It will all show up all at once, once I "open for business".
May 3, 2004
Using Mark's data, I updated the table cross-referencing the adventure numbers, game session dates, and adventure names within our quest to the City of the Spider Queen.
April 30, 2004
April 29, 2004
I renamed the "dnd" directory: it is now the "rpg" directory, so that I can put stuff for all Role Playing Games into it, rather than just Dungeons & Dragons. I left "dnd" as a symbolic link, so old bookmarks should work just fine.
April 11, 2004
I restructured the stories of the City of the Spider Queen adventure more logically: rather than having one gaming session per page, I put each encounter on a separate page and grouped them by day number of the adventure.
March 19, 2004
I completely reorganized the directory structure underneath "dnd" and made several files the index.html for their respective directories. I didn't add any new content, but there is a chance I broke some links.
March 17, 2004
Based on peer review, I simplified and clarified my treatise on Experience Point Awards.
March 13, 2004
I analyzed the Experience Point Awards chart in the Dungeon Master's Guide and learned some interesting things. Along with other gems of insight, I found at least seven errors in the published chart.
March 12, 2004
We're trying out the Unearthed Arcana domain wizards rule in Dargas, since, as we all know, wizards got heavily nerfed in 3.5
I added a link to the sidebar to get to a top-level Dungeons and Dragons page. Now I just need to figure out how to organize it.
March 10, 2004
Added raw data for our session of 02/26/2004.
Installed hot links on the "stats" pages of Brianna, Hazen, Marga, Tebryn, Tigerblade, Veracity, and Yol, for non-standard Feats, to the appropriate table in the Custom and Variant Rules in the Dargas Campaign page.
March 8, 2004
The Unearthed Arcana Weapon Groups have been adopted in Dargas.
March 7, 2004
I put up a page describing the Custom and Variant Rules in the Dargas Campaign: what makes it different than "by the book" V3.5 D&D.
I included a write up about the Level Adjustment Reduction method from Unearthed Arcana, which we are considering adopting, if we can figure out how to retrofit it to our existing high-level characters.

Installed the raw data for the most recent seven episodes of the City of the Spider Queen. I'm taking writing-intensive World History classes, but as I am now between semesters, I'll do what I can to convert the raw data into stories.

November 7, 2003
Added Black Star, Dirgon, Xeno, Henry, Catherine, Pietr, Agon, and Knack to the Player Character Birthday List.

Created a page of information about Chondara.

All of the character now have full sized pictures available: if you are on the "main" page for a character (as opposed to the "stats" page), when you click on the image, you'll get a page with the same text but with a full-resolution image, twice the height and width. If you click on the large image, you get back to the page with the small image.

I scanned in the map of the Mansion in Sigil and inserted images of the floors into the tour guide.
I develop this site on OS/X using Emacs and Safari, Apple's browser. Having been warned that my Gallery wasn't displaying correctly with the latest Windows browsers, I looked it over and found that Internet Explorer on OS/X had a similar display problem. I also found, to my horror, that it had other display problems - including one that was clearly a bug, and not just an alternate way of rendering HTML into text - and that Internet Explorer and Netscape on OS 9 had still other issues. I modified my source to make my pages display similarly on all the browsers available to me here. I'll have to check it out on a Windows machine somewhere else...

I converted the entire site to use navigation inspired by
didn't want a blog at the top level of the site, so I customized the
package to suit my needs. With it, I have template files that apply the
same look and feel to every page on the site. And, its tight integration
into Emacs makes working with the site a breeze. For example, when I
