You are reading this on an electronic device, or got this from an electronic device. Consider how much of your day is spent interacting with electronics. Consider how much of your daily life is dependent on electronics. Everyday more and more of the aspects of daily life become more and more integrated to the internet. What happens if we no longer can communicate with cell phones and the internet? What happens if shipping closes down because the electronic systems that are used to route, direct and plan the logistics stop? What happens then? Continue reading →
GenCon started for me on Friday afternoon at 4:30. A group of us met at Scotty’s Brew House in downtown Indianapolis. I had the buffalo loaded tots with sriracha honey sauce and blue cheese. It was one of the best appetizers I have ever had. I followed that with a ‘big ass brew house burger’, 4 quarter pound patties of farm raised Indiana beef. I washed it all down with a local favorite, Wee Mac from Sun king brewery here in town. It was local fair prepared well, delivered with a smile, and consumed with friends, both new and old. When I walked into the place there was a giant banner on the wall that proudly proclaimed that Pathfinder was the sponsor of events in this establishment and there were two running games in opposite corners of the establishment that I noticed while I was being seated. Iron Man 3 was playing throughout the brew house and I knew then and there I was among friends. It was the start to what would be one of the best GenCon’s I had ever attended. Continue reading →

From the hills the fairies whisper to lone strangers, “come join the dance”. Watching from beneath the waves are the Merrow, the dwellers of the deep. Strange noises and half-heard screams ring at night from the cellars of the towns and cillages. The unwary go missing in the wilds, the locals say “Pooka”, and shake their heads. Fires are lit on the mountainsides and bones are cast into the flames; a young woman sits in a trance as ectoplasm oozes from her mouth, and she speaks of times-past in a voice that is not her own.
All these things and more are waiting on this Celtic Isle. This is a land of roaring seas, deep lakes, green pastures, barren bogs, and heather-topped mountains. Continue reading →

Welcome to Jurassic Park! That’s one of my most vivid memories about the movie. The rest of the film, up to that point, had been slow and boring, but when they opened those gates, I fell in love. The movie is great and we’re going to see it in theatres for my birthday, so I thought it was about time I actually read the book. For all of my love of dinosaurs, I waited until I was nearly 32, 24 years after the book was written, to actually read the book. I wish I hadn’t waited, but having read the book now, I can’t wait to see the movie with the book fresh on my mind. Continue reading →
