Bash: A Tale of Serving Heroes (1)

I’ve decided to try putting up some of the little things I’m working on, since I seem to be unable to conjure up blog topics every week.

“Thank you for calling Bash, my name is Alexander, how can I help you?”
“I am Sir Harold of Misra and my sword isn’t working.”
“Ok Sir Harold, how isn’t your sword working?”
“It’s just not working.”
“Is it not cutting? Is it a flaming sword?”
“No, it’s not a flaming sword. And yes it still cuts fine.”
“Ok sir, so how is the sword not working?”
“If I knew I wouldn’t be calling you.”
“Sir, is that a dragon?”
“Yes, I’m trying to use this stupid ice sword on this dragon, but it’s not freezing it.”
“Sir did you say it’s an ice sword?”
“Yes, I just said that.”
“And it’s not freezing the dragon?”
“Yes, I said that too.”
“Sir, ice dragons can’t be frozen with our ice swords.”
“Then what good are they!?” Continue reading


Gettin’ Stuff Done

I may not have written as much as I’d care to over the past year or so of my hiatus, but you can bet your sweet bippy I haven’t been sitting idle either.  Between 56 games, 15 shows or movies and 16 books, I’ve been consuming fiction like it’s going out of fashion.

All with the help of lists!  Yeah, not every post here is going to be a winner.

AtoZ: The Themening

Since I signed up for the A to Z Challenge, I never really considered putting a theme to my April posting.  Reading what others have said and encouraged, I feel it’d be a good idea.  What do I theme on though?

Things that aren’t what the norm is.

That’s not very eloquent. Continue reading

Daily Writing

As part of my drive to improve my writing, both in quality and quantity, I’ve been trying to write every day.  To this end, I’ve started producing content for a small RPG website.  News stories to start, but hopefully I’ll start having columns, reviews, etc. to add to the growing site.  It’s been interesting writing every day, especially since so many have been news story.

I found out I’m terrible at news stories.

I’ve been thinking, good possibly regular reader, you and I likely haven’t been properly introduced yet.  Sure, you can click on that about page and get a pseudo snapshot view of myself and this blog, but who am I really?  What are my goals?  My ideals?  Why did I make this blog? Continue reading

Satisfaction: Thy Name is Dark Souls

Between looking for jobs and pretending to be working on my novel (shhhh, don’t tell me) I’ve been playing a lot of Dark Souls.  For those not in the know, it’s a game that has a reputation for being hard.

A very well earned reputation.

And it’s great. Continue reading
