    Sticky Stories: The Tolkien Legendarium

    7 January, 2013 • 1 Comment

    There are some stories that just seem to stick. Some stories that latch on, and stay with me, never leaving my brain, and resurfacing every now and then to make me ponder the intricacies and details and themes they explore.

    A Lack of Board Games

    22 October, 2012 • 6 Comments

    I feel like I don’t have enough board games. I don’t know if I’m properly qualified to be a board game geek (though I do have an account on BoardGameGeek), since I haven’t really played a wide variety of games. I do however feel like one, like someone who will go out of their...

Ludicrous amounts of thought, actually, considering that this is a point which is hardly even relevant when playing a...

    Five of a Thing: D&D Monsters

    16 April, 2012 • 4 Comments

    One of the things I like about D&D is the ridiculous number of monsters it has accumulated. There are whole pages dedicated to some of the sillier critters the game has now left behind. There are still some really weird ones in the mix, but I think most of them have some cool feature...
