Some personal notes and musings, if any readers are interested.

Two Year Anniversary!

Image: My hilarious mug and a reader-made, 3D printed, “Heavy Metal GM” D20. Jeff, this is the most amazing thing someone I barely know has ever done for me, thank you so much!   Up early on a Sunday, that’s the kind of guy…

Allegorical Gaming: Weighing Reason

Analyze how some degree of understanding about human reason is important to build an RPG campaign as an allegory.

Gen Con 50 Experience

My vacation is over. A week at Gen Con and a week in Scotland with only a day between the two, and now, I’m back to reality. Let me tell you, those two weeks were marvelous. There’ll be a post about Scotland later for…

An Adventure: Painting Miniatures

The reason why I picked up X-wing miniatures was because everything comes pre-painted. I was always of the philosophy that war games that force you to paint your own stuff were 1). a money sink 2). a time sink and 3). way more effort…

I feel like a lot of people don’t really understand the genre(s) of music. As a reader of this blog, perhaps you do to some extent, or maybe you’re just here for the RPG stuff. Either way is fine, but this post is to…

What Have I Been Up To?

Hello all! The lack of activity lately has probably drawn some questions (or not) into your minds. So this post is to update you on what I’ve been doing! So first off, I’ve been just getting pummeled by my job. By the time I…
