What Is Heaven Like? - Part 2 - Geekdom of God Ep. 22

Image
This episode is the concluding second part for my two part series on Heaven. It finishes examining some of the descriptions in Revelation, then examines Scripture from a few other places to glean a few more details.

I mention these Bible verses: Luke 24:31—https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke+24%3A31&version=NIV Luke 24:36-43—https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke+24%3A36-43&version=NIV 2 Peter 1:4—https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Peter+1%3A4&version=NIV 1 Corinthians 15:53—https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Corinthians+15%3A53&version=NIV
I also reference these previous Geekdom of God episodes: What Is Heaven Like? Part 1—https://youtu.be/-eV-9nd6e30 The Hope of Christianity—https://youtu.be/4xcSq2MUbrI

This week I continued doing War in Kryta content. This involved doing some stuff for Keiran Thackery, then eventually transitioned to doing bounties for Princess Salma. These bounties escalated to include Mursaat leaders!

Dreamlogic & Game Design: Figuring out related functionality

So, I've been working on this RPGMaker MV RPG I'm call "Dreamlogic." I've written about it before, and I'm going to assume you know what I'm talking about so I don't spend paragraphs explaining the game. Yeah. >_>

Anyway, I have a world themed after Ocarina of Time. I want the player to be able to collect the spells from the Great Fairies: Din's Fire, Farore's Wind, and Nayru's Love. Two of these are pretty straight forward to implement.

Din's Fire simply becomes an AoE fire damage spell, and Nayru's Love grants a buff that reduces all physical and magical damage to zero. Like I said, that's pretty straightforward.

Farore's Wind, however, is not. Granted, it'd be pretty easy to make something that on the surface seems similar. I can simply make a common event with the option to place a warp point or to warp to the placed point. That's pretty easy using some variables to store the map and the x/y positions.

What Is Heaven Like? - Part 1 - Geekdom of God Ep. 21

Image
This episode is part 1 of what I expect to be a two part series talking about Heaven—or, more accurately, the New Jerusalem that will be the eternal city of God and His servants in the next age. This part focuses on the city itself, while the next episode will focus on the city's inhabitants.

Here's the promised link to the Judgment Day account in Revelation 20:11-21:8: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=revelation+20%3A11-21%3A8&version=NIV

This week saw me complete the main story for the Winds of Change content in Guild Wars 1. I then did the Zinn quests and began the War in Kryta. A lot of specific questing, huh? Though, I do make time to go and grab an elite skill or two along the way.

This week was mostly focused on the Halloween content in Guild Wars 1. I'm glad I was able to get to it, since I didn't actually get to record until November 1st! I had fun playing it, and it makes me excited for the Wintersday content that'll come out around Christmas/New Years.

The Church As Family - Geekdom of God Ep. 19

Image
A recent family reunion instilled me with inspiration about what it means for the church to be the family of God. That's what this episode is all about!

This week I spent my time playing through more of the Winds of Change content for Guild Wars 1. Things are really heating up in the story, and in a way that feels like oddly relevant social commentary for today.
