Light blue letters on maroon background automatically makes a FRUA design look classy.

DAY THREE: Saturday - February 11th, 2017 (Part One):

- Began populating the first area that is explored by the player.
- Tested some monster encounters in order to achieve the correct balance.

Hours Spent on Saturday (so far): 2
Total Hours Spent: 7

Note:
Sadly, I am being slowed down due to being sick and working a 12-hour shift this weekend. The only thing that's worse than being deathly ill is also having to work a 12-hour shift while being deathly ill.  Hopefully, it won't slow down my work on the module too much.

Thanks for sharing these, Ben.  Seeing the "sewers" walls and the pig orcs is really exciting.

DAY FIVE: Monday - February 13th, 2017 (PART ONE):

Still fighting a terrible sickness.  I'm actually worried it could turn into pneumonia.  I'm using my resting time to kick back on the couch with my laptop and continue working on the module.  I'm working on the final area now.  If all goes well, I might actually get it done in less than a week.

Things left to do:

- Finish final area.
- Write two different endings.
- Add some "camping" artwork.
- Determine resting encounter chances.

Total Hours So Far on Monday:  2
Total Hours So Far on Project:  16
