Hold on to your butts.

Game of Life all month!   Enjoy.

Part 14

The guards hadn’t lied.   The Humvee was in tip-top condition.  After a quick inspection, they found it even had a fresh coat of urban camo.

Jeff sidled up to one of the soldiers.  The military these days wore riot gear, as preventing bites was the top priority.  His black body armor had the name ‘jagger’ printed on his ID tag.   “So…

Musing: What’s in a Color?

Musing: What’s in a Color?

It’s no secret I play World of Warcraft.   Yesterday a major patch hit that gave most of the characters new models.  My troll has never looked better.  However a sticky situation has put a damper on the revelry.

I’m a Horde player, so I anticipated the switch of my Orc Warrior, Xallion and my Orc Mage Nehl, two names my blog regulars would appreciate.  The goblins and blood elves didn’t get a…

Please people, don’t let this fly under the radar.   I converted over my male Worgen on the World of Warcraft Beta and was horrified to see this.   I confirmed it on the character select screen, you can’t make dark skinned (human mode) Worgen anymore.
If this makes it to the live patch I am not going to be a happy camper.

Hold on to your butts.

October is here!   So it’s time for a Game of Life marathon.   Buckle your seat belts, things are about to get rocky for Jeff and Harriet.

Part 13

The control room stayed silent, giving Harriet plenty of time to examine the computer.   The insides sparked and flickered, most of it reduced to slag from Harriet’s rifle shot.   She pulled out piles of shredded circuitry and…

Musing: Defying the Archetype

So after my inevitable victory of the Dragon Lord I decided to keep the classic RPG ball rolling since Square-Enix see fit to put games on the Google Play store.  There’s been one glaring hole in my classic Final Fantasy agenda for a while now and that’s Final Fantasy 2.

No, not the one with Cecil the Dark Knight and his quest for rainbow colored hair.  I mean the NES game that never came…

Part 4 of Magician Jaymel.   The other three chapters can be found right here on the blog.   Just look for the armor picture on the main page.

The Magician Jaymel, Part 4

Watching Kriss and Grisa bothered Jaymel worse than he would ever think possible.  They waved their goodbyes, starting the trek to the central forest city.  Helsa stood beside him, counting out the coin left…

Musing: Vacations and Getting Things Done.

For some a vacation, for others hard work.

I got some serious writing done over the past few days, a true testament to the difference a sunny beach atmosphere can make.  I honestly can’t remember the last time I got three chapters done in such a short time.   Of course we’re talking about first draft material, which inevitably needs some TLC to be turned into quality novel material.

Hooray for Starbucks WiFi!  Sorry for the late post, here’s the week’s story.

The Magician Jaymel, Part 3

By the time he reached the cave, Kriss, Grisa and Helsa stood watiing next to the Kobold cave.

“We need to get out of here, now,” Jaymel said.

“What’s the hurry?” Kriss said adjusting his new armor.  “Did you screw something up?”

Jaymel clenched his jaw.   He had to…

Update: A Wifi-less world.

My Friday B.O.S.S. It’s behind schedule.  I have chapter three of The Magician Jaymel ready, but the internet gods are not cooperating.  I should have it up sometime today, or tomorrow if the net issue isn’t resolved.

P.S.  Typing this on a smartphone is not fun.

Musing: Why doesn’t anyone want the world saved?!

Musing: Why doesn’t anyone want the world saved?!

From my experience with role playing games, I notice a disturbing trend.   The world is in peril and it can only be saved by a rag-tag band of adventurers— yet no one seems interested in helping them save the world.

I started (re)playing Dragon Quest on my smartphone, and came to the realization authority figures have very odd priorities.   From the start, the king lauds me as the ancestor of…
