Various Geekery

In case you haven’t already guessed, I’m a huge geek, and whenever I’m not writing or arguing with my owl, I play games. A lot of games.

And then I tend to write rambling, mostly nonsensical blog posts about said games!

You might also find some stuff about LARP’ing and D&D and swords… You get my drift.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands Bastion Statue

Adventures in World of Warcraft Shadowlands

We're taking a break from our scheduled book content to give you a gaming post. This is, of course, in celebration of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, the new expansion to the game I have been playing for 15 years, like some loon with game Stockholm Syndrome. Even though I have ...

Top Ten Tuesday – Non-Bookish Hobbies

It's time for Top Ten Tuesday, and for once, the prompt is not book-related. It's Non-Bookish Hobbies, and while I don't think I can list 10 of them, I do have quite a few. ...And they're all ridiculously geeky. Cosplay Yes, I enjoy dressing up as fictional characters. It's frowned upon ...

Witcher School – Where I Made a Deal with the Devil and Developed a Hatred of Spoons

Spoilers for episode 2 of Witcher School.  Oh, I have been longing to write another one of these posts! (Which is why I have no idea why it has taken me so long to finish...) I got home from Episode 2 of Season 4 of Witcher School, my third WS ...

Do I Play Too Much Heroes of the Storm? Why Yes. Yes, I do

Not many think much of Heroes of the Storm after Blizzard pulled the plug on its eSport's scene - throwing in the towel and admitting to League of Legends that they win - but it's still my MOBA of choice. Possibly because it's less popular, meaning I have less 12-year ...

To Bard or Not to Bard

I recently got invited to a new Dungeons & Dragons group and I was eager to make a character that would be useful with their existing group dynamic. I was told they could use frontliners and a healer, so - since I already play a Cleric in my other D&D ...

Dragon Age Keep

Favorite Companions in Dragon Age

You might not have noticed because of all the Witcher stuff I post, but I have a deep-seated obsession with Dragon Age. And not just because of the dragons. (Though you can never have too many dragons.) Since I haven't been seeing a lot of my real life friends, I ...

Confessions of a D&D Dice Hoarder

You know what sucks about this whole social distancing thing? (I mean, except for people dying, the economy collapsing, people losing their jobs, etc...) My D&D groups have to cancel all gaming sessions. I don't even have any online groups going at the moment, and even if I did, the ...

Sokrates Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and the Powerful Desire to Punch Sokrates in the Face

I feel it's been too long since I did a totally random and nearly nonsensical post about whatever video game I'm playing. Of course, that's probably because I have been too busy to play any new games and there's only so much you can say about your 10,000th (let's be ...

Witcher School – Where I Became a Cat School Ambassador and Made Adepts Howl at the Moon

Spoilers for episode 1 of Witcher School.  Okay, where to begin? I got home from my second Witcher School LARP Sunday evening. At the time of writing this, it's Tuesday and I finally feel like I can lift my arms for long enough to write this post. If you want ...

Getting Ready to Enroll in Witcher School Again

You might remember reading about how I went to a castle in Poland to get my ass kicked back in April. Well, I will be going back next week, so lots of preparations are underway. To the fortunate ones who haven't been forced to listen to me gush endlessly about ...
