In Moot Member Blogs Not working for Disney Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #289 New Yesterday 07:50 AM
This is personal drama, and I should probably start a new blog on another server, but there's a reason I'm posting this here;

There was a sizeable Disney influence in my younger years, and it is my opinion that this was engineered for a possible career with Disney in some way shape or form. Given what I've discovered about my "real" biological family, and all of the drama that I went through, some of which involved Disney in a very roundabout way, I'm not of a mind to work for Disney in any ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs I am not a Vargr Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #288 New March 19th, 2018 05:18 AM
Truly, I am not. I do not have a long tail, I do not have upright pointed ears sticking past the top of my head, not do I have a long snout nor canine like teeth.

But YouTube thinks I'm an African American. And, further, also thinks I'm a woman out of India. Not that you could equate a Vargr with either of those ethnicities, but if I were sitting in my freighter at some downport, or in orbit, and cruising the local net, I would be getting ads for female Vargr products.

Last year or the year before last (in the last three or four years maybe) I was playing Age of Kingdoms. It was a 4v4 black forest map, and somehow I had lots of stone on my end of the map. I built two lines of castles, five each, so I had an unprecedented ten castles, some packing archers, defending my little nook as my allies sallied forth to gouge the opposition.

But, as per the title, even though I had ten castles, some with archers, trebuchets (four, five, six or more, I can't remembe ...More Read More

I got my bluray of The Ice Pirates the other day, and even a high def 1080p can't help this thing. It's just as plain, blah and otherwise amusing but not all that funny as I remember it.

It's very Traveller like in the sense that you have a band of outlaws roaming the galaxy in a ship, and depending on your "alignment" in the OTU or YTU, this may or may not reflect your groups pirating modus operandi.

I never saw it in the theatre, caught it on HBO a couple of times, and disappointedly ...More Read More

In 2005 when I rejoined the workforce, it struck me as odd that a good number of the employees were from Australia.

Currently I'm turning off ads from; (based in Australia)
RadiumOne Pty Ltd (also based in Australia)
News Corp Australia
Fairfax Media (based in Australia)
Telstra (based in Australia)

My Steam gaming ping times are in the 200 range, I can rarely get multiplayer games from all over the globe, and since MS's relaunch of a 3D accelerated version of Age of Empir ...More Read More

I need to draft up some adventure proposals for Magnus, organize the storage area, and just get out and see the sun.

I was going to post this really extremely cool homage to Ellis (Elizabeth Peters) who wrote the Father Cadfael mystery series, but I'm thinking I have another direction to take that story.

I really want to rewrite the first Geonee story. I'm thinking I may do that. Oh well.

In Moot Member Blogs The daily rant Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #282 New March 8th, 2018 08:57 AM
Imagine you're at the Regina downport, and your surfing the local news networks, and you come across a story that says "Zhodani forces destroy Imperial Carrier!" And, the cover photo shows a contemporary Imperial starship. Yet when you click on the link the story is about one of the minor wars the Imperium and Zhos fought centuries ago.

So it is that I clicked on a Yahoo online news piece. Look, I knew it was come on, a click bait article that had absolutely no news value what so ever. I ...More Read More

  #281 New March 5th, 2018 09:26 AM
So, this is really a reflection on how RPGs and films mirror one another, and not really an adventure seed as such.

"King Arthur", the 2004 film starring Clive Owen and Kiera Knightly. The Sarmatian knights are dispatched to rescue Roman settlers north of Hadrian's Wall. Naked and semi-naked Celtic "Woad warriors" lie in wait, and as if that wasn't bad enough, a tribal army from Germania has landed on the northern shores of the isle of Britain, pillaging as they move south. No man, no wo ...More Read More

I've written about this game before the great blog purge of last year or the year before last.

It's 1999 or 2000. I'm washing out of engineering school (I couldn't finish the first problem in the Circuits and Devices homework ... what a blow), the dog and parental unit are long gone, and overall it's just not a good time professionally nor academically.

What to do... drink? I don't drink. Smoke? I don't smoke. Grab some illicit substances? Eh, I don't do that either.

But, there ...More Read More
