A friend of mine drew this for me in high school:   The other two are pretty self-explanatory, but the “flaming haycarts”?

Strategicon OrcCon 2013 – Part 2

February 27, 2013 Mook 7

This is the second part of my OrcCon 2013 recap, covering the games I enjoyed and ran on Sunday and Monday. Part one is here, covering Friday and Saturday. The first two days of the convention were totally fun, but […]

Strategicon OrcCon 2013 – Part 1

February 21, 2013 Mook 6

It seems I completely skipped posting about any of the conventions in 2012! Once the dust has settled maybe I’ll see if I still have my notes and rectify that. I was recently lucky enough to attend the OrcCon 2013 […]

September 14, 2011 Mook 0

Part two of my ramblings, review, and summary of the recent Gateway 2011 gaming convention (part one is here). Got a solid 6 hours of sleep, quick shower, bananas and an apple for breakfast, boogied on down to my first […]

Strategicon Gateway 2011 – Part 1

September 11, 2011 Mook 0

Can’t believe it’s already been 3 months since the last game convention! Last weekend I was lucky enough to attend the Strategicon Gateway 2011 convention here in LA. Just like Gamex in June, I had an awesome time – probably even […]

June 10, 2011 Mook 1

My writing project has finally been completed (and on deadline!), so I have time to write up an overview of the recent Gamex game convention. As a warning – it’s long. I haven’t been to a gaming convention in probably […]

Finally Done!

Nearly 2 years ago, I emailed a query to my favorite game publisher about a possible PDF book. I was 90% sure I would get back a polite form letter thanking me for my interest and sending me on my […]

Back From Strategicon

June 1, 2011 Mook 0

Been back for a couple days now. The convention was a ton of fun! I’d like to put together a decent “After Con Report” in the next few weeks, but this week I’m scrambling to meet a June 6th deadline […]

Heading to Gamex 2011

May 22, 2011 Mook 0

This weekend I’m taking a mini-vacation to hug my inner geek at Gamex 2011, a gaming convention here in LA. Oddly enough, while the economy Travelodge down the street offers free Wi-Fi, the Sheraton where the convention actually is does […]

Frank Frazetta Passes Away

May 10, 2010 Mook 1

Seems like one of the few things that ever gets me to post is the death of someone I admired. Today’s turn of the wheel is Frank Frazetta, who, from early reports, appears to have passed away this morning at […]

Blindness

March 30, 2009 Mook 0

So I just finished watching a movie that actually made me angry it was so bad: Blindness. It’s about what happens when a large city is suddenly affected by a mass outbreak of blindness, specifically the circumstances surrounding a woman […]

In Memory of a Fallen Hero

March 5, 2008 Mook 5

So Gary Gygax died yesterday, at the age of 69. I know that for very many of you reading this, your first thought is ‘Oh that’s too bad – who is Gary Gygax?’ He was the co-creator of the role-playing […]
