Witcher School – Where I Started a War with a Bard and Once Again Didn’t Murder Any Blue Stripes

Spoilers for Episode 3 of Witcher School.  Note: I started writing this post right after the episode back in October... and then I got busy. And then I sort of forgot about it. And then I couldn't be arsed to proof-read it. My point is, please pretend this was published ...

Let’s Talk Dungeons & Dragons Characters

While we're waiting for me to get off my ass and finish the large LARP posts in the pipeline, let's have a fun little discussion about an adjacent geek topic. I have been playing so much Dungeons & Dragons lately. As of writing this, I have done three sessions for ...

Yet Another ‘Yes, I’m Alive’ Post

It's funny how time flies, isn't it? I knew I had neglected this blog, but it somehow still came as a surprise when I looked at the date for my last post and saw that it's been the better part of a year since then. But then again, I do ...

We Interrupt Our Scheduled Owl Programming to Bring You an Alpaca

I know it's been forever since I last made an update. But the simple truth is that nothing interesting or inspiring has really been going on. Which is why you're getting a little fluff post. Pun intended. The story is simple: Yesterday, my mother took me on a trip up ...

My Year in Books (and Owls) 2020

Now that we have settled into 2021, I'm going to be looking back at the books - all 63 of them - I read in 2020. I think we can all agree that 2020 was a crappy year, with more and more crap shoved down on top of it nearly ...

The Bookish Owl – Lord of the Clans by Christie Golden

Given the amount of World of Warcraft I've been playing over the past couple of months, I think it's fitting that the last Bookish Owl post of the year will be Lord of the Clans by Christie Golden. I'm not even joking. All this social distancing has resulted in me ...

The Bookish Owl – House of Salt and Sorrow by Erin A. Craig

Tonight we're going with a horror fairy tale: House of Salt and Sorrow by Erin A. Craig. This book was a great mix of fantasy and horror, and that's a genre we need more of! (That's a barely disguised request for fantasy horror suggestions in the comments. Just in case ...

The Bookish Owl – The Last Continent by Terry Pratchett

We're going Down Under - to Foureks, obviously - in The Last Continent by Terry Pratchett. No worries. Any Discworld novel featuring Rincewind and the wizards of Unseen University is bound to be weird. Throw in time travel and a couple of kangaroos, and it gets even weirder. Which is ...
