Let's Make a Roguelike - Generation

In a shocking turn of events, I actually finished this week's tutorial segment last night! This means that I was done a full day early, and I've opted to post the new segment this morning before I head to work.

The trick this time was starting early. I finished the followup last weekend, then did half of the work on Saturday and the rest on Sunday. I'm pretty sure that if I keep to this formula, then I should be able to keep up with the schedule without causing myself too much stress.

As for the contents, I'm continuing my policy of "give the reader some fun stuff early on" by sharing a couple simple random generation algorithms. In my old plan for the tutorial, this probably wouldn't have happened until part 6 or 7 (we're on part 4), so I think this was a good move. I'm also trying to get through things quickly because (as I said before) I'm still not 100% happy with this tutorial and would like to get it out of the way so that I can focus on making better-planned tutorials in the future.

Lastly, I wanted to say that I'm going to try and revive the old one post a week policy from my college days. I've actually been working pretty hard on a couple of interesting projects lately, so this will give me an opportunity to share them on non-tutorial weeks. I'm painfully aware of the fact that the tutorial is the only thing I've written about this year and it's nearly March.
