Curse of Strahd Miniatures

Like many others in the community I’ve been playing Curse of Strahd: A Dungeons & Dragons Sourcebook, and like others I’ve decided to 3D Print & paint a few of the miniatures you will meet throughout the introductory session Death House.

All minicatures were printed on a FlashForge Finder 3D Printer with default settings.

The models I used were downloaded from Thingiverse, and are all amazing; shout out to the gracious creators for sharing their work (see links below):

Dungeon Brawl

In order to re-familiarize myself with MongoDB I decided to write a little web application utilizing it as a backend datastore.

Dungeon Brawl is a Python Flask app that runs inside Docker with the help of docker-compose.

Using this application a Dungeon Master can easily track all things combat for their Dungeons and Dragons group.

Grab the source code from Github, or check out a demo.

Android Open Trivia Database Application

This month I went from owning an iPhone to an Android, I also decided to freshen up on the new hotness in the Android development realm.

I learned Kotlin is now an officially supported Language, Android Studio works much better than the old days of Eclipse and plugins, and OkHttp + Gson make interacting with Rest APIs pretty darn easy.

So what did I manage to create?

Using a list of public-apis found on toddmotto’s Github I came across the Open Trivia Database.

And there you have it I decided to develope a simple Trivia application:

The source code for this project can be found on my Github, Keep in mind I merely hacked this project together with no former Kotlin, and very little Android development experience.
