    A Modder's Log, is quite simply a written Let's Play with a keen focus on using mods to enhance a character. There aren't really any direct rules behind what goes into one, they're like a Let's Play in that everybody will do a Log slightly different. I write mine as a kind of combination between a Story, Character Build and Roleplaying Profile. What that means is that I write some of it in-character in the same way I might write a story, while the other half of it is just my ramblings and thoughts on how the character is progressing. Lissette's style is more focused on what she's doing as a player and how it effects her character (I'll just let Liss do the talking for a second)

    I am not approaching this Modder's Journal the same way Dragonborn approaches his, so I doubt I will be submitting any entries in character. What I will be doing is chronicling how I approached the game after each session. Good decisions I made and yes, bad decisions

    These are just two of the many ways you could approach this. There is the choice to go even deeper in-character than I did, or you could exclude all of the gameplay notes that Liss and I use and focus on it purely as a Roleplaying Run, focusing on why your character made different decisions rather than how your playing the game. All of is fair play really, and it's supposed to be an expression of how you play the game. 

    Of course it does need to distinctly seperate itself from another type of content (It can't be purely in-character because that would pretty much just be a story) but other than that tiny rule, go nuts and have fun with this. 

    Rules

    Yes, I know. I did say that there aren't any rules, but this is a type of content so there are a few rules about tagging, naming it and so forth.

    1 - A Modder's Log should only be about one main character. You can add other in-game character's to it in someway (Followers are easiest) but you should only be focusing on one unique character to be the central focus of your Log.

    2 - The title should be Modder's Log - [Character/Build Name Here]

    3 - All Logs should use either the Fallout Modder's Log tag or the Skyrim Modder's Log tag depending on the game

    Hey DB - I've got one of these I'm working on for a FO4 playthrough... what's the tag? And do I just start whenever and update it as I go? Or wait till it's done, like a traditional CB? Thanks!

    Bugger, sorry I missed this Motty. The tag is "Fallout Modder's Log" (without the quotation marks), and yeah it's an update as you go kind of thing. 

    I'd be interested in reading a Fallout 4 one if I didn't miss the chance to turn you over to the Modder's side of the...well it's not the force, but, the point is I really want to see it and hope I wasn't too late :D

    All good! I'm traveling this weekend and won't be into it at all but I think it will make for a nice addition. Really enjoying this play through all modded out :D
