Welcome, and well met!

I'm a fan of pen-and-paper RPG's. That's what you are going to find on this site. Sometimes there might be a blurb about the Secret World MMO; but the focus here is my drifting through Wisconsin's gaming communities.

Links will be added as cons are visited, games are played, and authoring is published.

Wander around. Grab a tankard. Relax and immerse yourself into polyhedron geekness, Wisconsin style!

Wind, witches, and writing

Today is brought to you by the letter W.
I started Rothfuss' The Name of the Wind over the weekend. Pretty good read so far (I'm about 1/4 of the way through it). I'm enjoying the 'fly on the wall' feel in following a single character (a Doc Savage-esque man name Kvothe). He does a nice job of giving all the other characters their own voices, while staying true to Kvothe's internal filter.

I also wasted a couple of hours and watched Season of the Witch. Six scenes and a lot of 'Hammer horror' elements. Ugh. I even tried to look at it through the lens of black humor and just could not do it.
1. The crusade montage scene, ala the opening credits of Wolverine.
2. Taking the job in Marburg.
3. The first watch and a mass grave.
4. The rickety bridge.
5. Wolves!
6. The monastery.
OK. Now I feel purged.

Last, but not least; Into the Valley is in playtest. That means I am on vacation until October. So now I can write on other projects. I've got two ideas for ArM5 to rough together. We'll see what the opinion comes back as. More on that stuff later.
