So as I mentioned in my previous post, Another text RPG, I had really hoped to make my text RPG more than just a choose your own adventure website. Well for another project in the same class we had the assignment of creating a situational simulation that incorporated some kind of skill check. I created an RPG style battle system (yes there seems to be a pattern here). This is basically what I wanted to add to the previous project, aside from a more interesting GUI, but they ended up being separate. Maybe someday I will have the time to combine them, but for now they are what they are.

If I were to continue working on this assignment, which I most likely will not, I would try to be rid of the alert windows. Because they are easy to learn and quick to write, many of our simulations in this class utilized these prompt windows. I would be interested in creating a browser-based interface for something like this in later projects.
So here it is: An Adventurer's Quest

In high school I would eat ramen all the time. Sure I lived with my parents, we had real food, but for some reason I still couldn't stop eating instant noodles. When I finally had real, restaurant ramen, my whole world turned upside down.
Now I live on my own and I've been doing a lot of cooking. My good friend Jon suggested that I add cooking to this blog, so here we are. My first attempt at making real ramen, no more of the instant stuff.
I followed the recipe for Shoyu Ramen from About.com and I'm very pleased with the result. If you try it, I really suggest using less salt. The soy sauce already adds a lot of salt to the broth, and the consumer can just add salt to their own tastes anyway. The cooking time is a bit long because you have to let the broth boil for a while (that is, if you boil it on low as the recipe suggests), but it's really quite easy.
It's a very basic recipe, so I'm sure it's easily modifiable. If you do try modifying it, let me know how it goes, I would be curious to hear! Happy cooking! :D
