A Beginning

This may seem like an ending, but it’s really a beginning. Why do we try? Why do we, humans, people, bang our heads over and over against a brick wall of perpetual failure, telling ourselves each time that “this time will be it!” and yet doing nothing to actually change things?  Every year for the…

Welcome TO THE DUNGEON!

I got a new game yesterday. I haven’t had a chance to play it yet, but I’ve seen it played on YouTube and read the manual, and I can’t wait to give it a go! I really love these little “pocket games” and I usually have one in my bag all the time, specifically when…

Board Games & Miniatures

Thanks in part to my board game loving friends, and to various YouTube board game reviews ( most prominently Shut Up & Sit Down ) I’ve begun developing an obsession with board games, and want nothing more than to get a large bookshelf and load it up with a plethora of board games.  I’ve also…

2018 Started Early

It feels…indescribably good and satisfying to see a creative workspace filled with paints and brushes and all the organized chaotic mess associated with doing something artistic once again in my life. Friday my new draft table came around 1pm and I spent a little over an hour putting it together. After debating for a bit…

Creative Endeavors

For as long as I can remember I’ve been creative. Maybe not so much any more, but back during my grade school days if you asked anyone who knew me what my defining trait would be they would say creative, or artistic, or imaginative. Even those who knew me really well like my closest friends…

Planning for my future Resolution

2018. My Lasik will be paid off, my Credit Card WILL be paid off (damnit, it will!) and I am determined for it to be an excellent year. I want to make some resolutions for the next year, even though it’s a few weeks early for it. I’ve fallen off the wagon in many ways…

Creating a Good Character #3: Keiforian

The little Darkshire tavern was surprisingly busy that night. Though maybe not so surprisingly, as Duskwood seemed to draw in the pompous glory-seekers looking to prove themselves against undead and uncivilized worgen, without actually risking their lives against the Scourge or the Burning Legion.  A haunt for those with the brooding lost-soul vibe so common…

Creating a good Character: Drakna, Orc Warrior

This is new ground for me. I’ve noticed a trend with my wow-related RP characters (and many RP characters) is that I tend towards the juxtaposition of unlikely traits to create a “unique” character. For example, Apiatahn.  I created a tauren priest because they just weren’t something you see a lot of (at least on…

Apiatahn

This is Apiatahn Cloudstride, Seer of An’she and aspiring inventor. With the Blizzcon announcement of Battle for Azeroth there has come a renewed vigor to play World of Warcraft, for me and it seems many others.  On the official forums and the WoW reddit excitement is running high (along with, of course, the usual complaints)…

I don’t want to go…

You know the episode of Doctor Who when the 10th doctor regenerates? He’s done so much and yet feels like he’s barely begun, and when it’s time to regenerate and loose who he is, he naturally doesn’t want to go. I feel that way right now. Less than a week ago I was sculpting dragons…

Not a good person.

It is 10:40 PM and I need to be up at 4AM tomorrow morning to go to work and set up for a big community yard sale we are having. And yet here I am writing a blog instead. The previous blog I wrote was about an incident at work where I took my sarcastic…
