Too Much Playing, Not Enough Writing?

Oh boy, not another almost-two-month gap! What am I going to do with myself? I have found myself falling into having my life devoured by gaming as of late with my free time. I talked at great length in my last post about running my first Dungeons & Dragons campaign. That’s still going strong, and…

First Time Dungeon Mastering!

My regular readers may have noticed a gap in posting as of late. Apologies. Life has gotten in the way. And by life, I mean Dungeons & Dragons. I’ve been playing D&D for over four years now, all in the 3.5 edition with the Forgotten Realms campaign setting. It’s what I chose to use for…

A month? I haven’t updated in over a month?! That’s malarkey, but it’s also sadly true. Get ready though, for this is might be a heavy post! Last we met, I was readying for Dragon Con. Well, that happened, and you can read all about it in my Dragon Con wrap up at CultureSmash. Immediately after…

20 Years of Power Rangers

20 years… 20 YEARS?! In my hectic preparation for DragonCon, I completely forgot that we were coming up on 20 years of Power Rangers, but sure enough, here we are. Twenty years ago today – Saturday morning, August 28, 1993 – Zita Repulsa escaped and five teenagers with attitude came together to fight her and…

DragonCon Survival Guide

DragonCon is the behemoth of fandom conventions in the southeastern United States. Four days of non-stop geekdom across downtown Atlanta, GA, filled with over 50,000 fellow fans. On DragonCon’s “What’s New in 2013?” page, it bills itself on its website as hosting “over 3,500 hours of non-stop programming, concerts, a film festival, the South’s largest costume contest, and…
