Final Project Progress

I thought long and hard about what kind of project I want to make, and I decided on a short story. I specifically want to write a story that is inspired by D&D. I want to make a fantasy adventure story since I don’t have too much experience writing fantasy. Since D&D was popularized during the 80s, that will be where the course theme comes in.

As for the forms I’m incorporating, I plan on drawing up a map graphic for the world that will count as design. I also want to make soundscapes for various parts of the story. I would probably use of freesound websites to create sounds such as town ambience or other atmospheric scenes to go along.

I drew a pencil sketch of what I want to map to look like and I decided to use a group of 4 characters for the main party.

I think I’m gonna make it three long chapters in the form of acts! I might also draw the characters if I feel like I’m skilled enough to do so.

  1. This is interesting and has lots of possibilities. There are WordPress plugins for making hotspot image maps, so you could make parts of the map clickable hyperlinks. You could also do a choose-your-own-adventure type story using Google Slides and set the sounds to autoplay on different scenes. There’s also an H5P plugin for WordPress that does branching scenarios (https://h5p.org/branching-scenario) which might work for the project. I haven’t tried it, but most of the H5P things I’ve used have been pretty easy.
