"Abandon All Hope" - Quitting once again.

I’ve decided to abandon all creative hobbies that I have been trying to undertake. I know you need to know this information, so there it is. It’s not a lack of want, but I think it’s a lack of motivation, which is kinda like want, but with an engine…

I've abandoned hope too. I just want to relax and play game or workout or do school work.

"Two Cents From The Peanut Gallery #Legion" - Views of a lapsed player

"An Intro To RimWorld" - A little bit about what #RimWorld is all about

I really like building games. I mean, games that have you building things, like — buildings — or societies, colonies, or contraptions. Like a lot of folks my age and younger, LEGO building sets were a household staple, and I believe that once you get…

"Generalists vs Specialists" - Is D&D's skill system too restrictive?

A weekly D&D recap by the party’s resident bard (naturally) got me thinking this morning about a set of situations we encountered during this week’s game. First, the party encountered a panel set into a wall in a narrow hallway. Most of the party tried…

And, to be clear, I don't think there's "One Right Way" (tm) to play.  Just discussing my preferences, perhaps to show why the rules may run that direction.

"A Pair of Dicks" - AdvCo plow through the dungeon despite a lineup modification.

Sometime between last session and this session, the composition of AdvCo…changed. Gone were the waladin and the druid, called off by some unheard yet apparently powerful klaxon that demanded their attention. In their place saw the return of the dwarven…

Mmmm I was pretty sure that if we decided to go after the treasure, Mister He-Man would wake up and kill us. We did talk about options but decided to proceed with the mission, and maybe do some light looting on the way back out.

Certainly as we move further in, it looks like getting to Varram is going to take on some urgency. He keeps leaving his guards behind him. I don't have enough spells left in order to do much in a fight, and I have to keep some slots open for heals, since our last heals just ran off. And I used some slots to heal folks after killing them with the Shatter.

We seem to be right on the heels of Varram, now. Eager now to get the location of the Drakkenhorn and grab some loot on the way back out. Hopefully with a long rest in there somewhere.

"I Know Nothing; Underground"- Repairing friendships, and value propositions.

I Know Nothing OK, look, Internet. I love you. We have a pretty good relationship you and I, having grown up together and all that. I remember when  you could barely render a graphic, and then there was that whole awkward MySpace phase you went through.…

Since if I want to play with friends I have to have it, I just bought it. It's so damn difficult to play WITH people that I guess I can't be choosy if its what I want to happen :/

"Menu Options in RimWorld" - Where to find what you need, when you need it #RimWorld

Before we get too much further into the workings of RimWorld, we need to take a look at the different menus that pop up along the bottom because much of the following discussion is going to refer to them. Unfortunately, there’s a lot about these menus…

"Getting Started With #RimWorld" - Securing your materials, basic UI, and initial steps.

Because RimWorld doesn’t currently ship with a robust tutorial, I thought that a record of my trials and errors with the game might be of use to those who are just starting out with the game. Although I’m a staunch advocate of figuring stuff out for…

If Pokemon Go is using Ingress' nodes, then this should be of some worth until someone makes a Pokemon specific version.
The world around you is not what it seems. Our future is at stake and you must choose a side. Join my faction in Ingress - a global game of mystery, intrigue and conquest.

"Dead Parties Tell No Tales" - AdvCo tracks Varrum, but fights a kitchen backsplash instead.

The airquote town of Boarskyer Bridge airquote was nothing more than a collection of tents and carts, reminiscent of that crappy carnival that the the local Lions Club insists on bringing to your town once a year…the one with the questionable rides run by…

"Steam Queues Revisited; A Strange Detour Into History" - An update, and a random Steam buy pays off.

Steam Queues Revisited I felt that after last week’s post regarding the somewhat lame recommendation engine that Steam uses to put products in front of us, I had to come back and talk about the feature that I stumbled upon quite by accident. Although…

Situated at the south end of Niagara's "entertainment district" and only about a 10 minute walk to the falls, this Howard Johnson's was better than expected. Clean, comfy, and with a pleasant staff.

Rooms were comfortable, although we were in there older part of the resort so there rooms were less modern: the bedroom had only a heater and no AC, although this room was on the inside of the complex. Views were great. There were two indoor pools, one obviously intended for children (more shallow, with a slide) and the other for older kids and adults. We didn't eat on the premises. We did eat breakfast down the road at the Heritage Farm Pancake House, which was amazing both for the good and the hospitality. Overall the stay was good, although the region wasn't yet "open" for tourism (end if April) which limited the options for things to do.
