MTG Fireball Calculator

by fletcher on May.18, 2010, under Gaming, jQuery, Web Programming, Website Design

Recently, I was playing a casual game on Magic Online, and my opponent suddenly stopped responding. I sent him (or her?) a quick message: “Hello? You still there?”. When I didn’t get a response, I conceded the game, thinking my opponent had lost their connection or something similar.

A few seconds later, I got a private message from my opponent:

“Hey, sorry about that. I was trying to figure out how much damage I could do with my Fireball, and didn’t notice that you had typed me a message.”

Thus, I have created an online tool for calculating just how much damage you can do, to how many targets, given the mana that you have available:

Burning Wheel Lifepath Browser

by fletcher on Feb.02, 2009, under Gaming, jQuery, Web Programming

I’ve been working on this tool for creating Burning Wheel characters. The main purpose is to alleviate the excessive page flippage that I’ve experienced in the past when designing a character.

Check it out here: Burning Wheel Lifepath Browser/Character Generator

For those interested, this is built completely with static html + jQuery. When you hover over a link, it grabs the file in the /data/ directory that matches the text inside the link and pops it into a tooltip. It currently only works in non-Internet Explorer browsers like Firefox, Safari or Chrome.

Because it’s just static html, I don’t have to fiddle with databases, and I have the option of packaging it up in a zip file as a distributable package.
