Changes to the Blog and Site Design

I LOVE tweaking and fiddling with this blog. My apologies to the readers, it seems like I move things around and change the layout every other day. Here are a few of the updates to the blog and the layout, as well as upcoming changes.

Mildly Magical Items: Reddit Edition

Mildly Magical Items: Reddit Edition

I saw this thread on reddit the other day, and was inspired! I’m making a list here for those who may find it useful, and to document them for my later use. The redittor who proposed it is linked next to the item. Read and enjoy!

A good magic item should offer some kind of tradeoff, special clause, or difficult method of use. A +1 Magic Sword isn’t very interesting, nor is a Fire Sword. But a…

Christian Gamemaker

“The Christian shoemaker does his duty not by putting little crosses on the shoes, but by making good shoes, because God is interested in good craftsmanship.” – Martin Luther

As a Christian, I grew up in a conservative home saturated with Christian media. I listened to Christian music, watched Jesus TV shows and movies, and read Christian fiction. I wasn’t as secluded as some people (Star Trek,…

Importance of Standards, Organization, and Images

Importance of Standards, Organization, and Images

When I started writing this blog, back in the day, it was a school assignment. As such, I really didn’t give a crap about how things looked, or what my content was. I got a B for my carelessness.

I also spent a lot more time playing street fighter back then….

Now that I actually have readers, here are a few of the rules I’ve set for myself, to keep the standard of posts higher: (more…)

Tea Snob Reviews

My family is a big coffee drinker. There was always a hot pot of coffee bubbling in our house. I grew up with the smell every morning, and every morning I watched my family members turn from zombies into fully functional members of society once they had that magical brew running through their veins. I don’t recall the first time I was offered a cup of coffee, but I do remember my first thoughts…

Critical Hitched!

I’m back! We had an amazing, wonderful wedding. It was easily the best one I’ve ever been to! And I’m not biased at all….

D & Lschirduan

I’ve got about 10 or so posts queued up, 2-3 more games coming down the pipe, and some supplements for Numenera and Dungeon World on the way.

Also, I’m slowly working on my first short story, inspired by my cat (hopefully that will be better than it sounds, because that…

I also hate when I’ll tell men that I can’t trust men

and they’ll react in some way like “damn girl who hurt you”

as if my reactions, my hypervigilance, my mistrust came from just one man’s actions

and not the sum of all of the actions

how men act in groups

how men behave everyday

I like this. Trust MUST be earned. It is not given away. Until someone proves that they are worthy of your trust, then you don’t owe them anything!

I’ve always generally assumed that if people are addicted to states of mind or feelings, its probably the good ones. Happiness, being in love, orgasms, adrenaline, gigglyness, superiority, successful, peaceful.

I’ve noticed that I’m addicted to some of those, for sure, and I am always looking…

Oh, nuthin’. Jus’ openin’ my fresh container of sugar gliders.


at first i thought “oh that’s awful to jam them all inside like that”
and then i saw the hole in the side
like they had cut up the tub to make a little playhouse for the gliders
and these little butts just all decided to smoosh in there at once
because sugar gliders can’t take turns aparently

Yup. Sugar gliders like to sleep squished in a big cuddlepile. That’s how they do it in the wild, snuggled in treetrunk burrows.
It’s seriously adorable.

Placeholder Post, Now With Questions!

When I started writing in this blog, my goal was to write 2-3 posts a week, minimum of 1000 words. What I’ve got right now is 2-3 posts a month, with 500-700 words each. Ugh.

Not happy about that, BUT on the other hand I did publish my Third Game, contributed to some cool websites, and have been writing a lot of material that won’t ever show up on the blog (my contributions to the Numenera…

Edited the site

I’m currently re-designing and re-structuring the site. Partly to show off my best work, and partly because I like changing things and get bored easily. One of the bigger changes is that the Micro-RPG review list is now front and center, with a shortcut button to boot!

I will be expanding and organizing my reviews, hopefully with more structure and content! So many exciting plans…AFTER the…

I’ve found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay… small acts of kindness, and love.
