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.”
“RRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH”
“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

Hiatus? More like Got a Job

So it’s been awhile since I’ve updated this blog.  A lot has happened in my life since I started it some two years ago.  I got a job, got promoted, moved, a whole slew of important things were going on.

Come back!  It’s better than it sounds! Continue reading

Warhammer 40k

It’s not really seen as cool to like Warhammer 40k by a lot of sci-fi purists.  It’s too dark and too grim and too full of BIG TUFF GUYS FIGHTING BIG TUFF BATTLES.

Honestly though?  I enjoy the stuff. Continue reading

Vastness

Space is really cool.

Really, it’s super cool.  It’s actually one of my favorite “settings.”  It has pretty much all the elements of a good setting and really gives you room to tell a great story.  I’ll tell you why it’s in quotes though, since it takes a bit of talking. Continue reading

Unrelenting Praise

When you read the title to this post, what do you think of?  Lots of praise, heaped in great, wondrous piles upon a worthy item/person?  Each piece lovingly given by those who were personally touched the greatness of the recipient?  Something so wonderful that it enriches the lives of everyone who comes into contact with it?

Or are you like me, and see something that people praise because…people praise it?
