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…

He then very excitedly started to recommend the Epic Rap Battles of History video of the Doctor…

Happy Thorsday! Yes, it’s not Thursday when this goes up, but I wrote most of it on a Thursday. Plus it’s always Thorsday. It should be no surprise by now that the current recommended read is a Thor title, specifically Thor: God of Thunder by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic. This particular title was born from…
