Because we’re going to the Chapel and we’re…

So from last month’s post to now… LOTS of crazy things have happened. The biggest of them being… IM ENGAGED. SQUEE!!!! I know some folks were asking what/when/where/ how the proposal went down so for sure there will be a post on that soon. Promise. August was a bit of a whirlwind, and now? It’s… Continue reading Because we’re going to the Chapel and we’re…

Day 6 of Blaugust Reborn: My IRL Magical Orc Cleric Transformation | PART 3: The Experience (Continued)

There’s a LOT to write about with my first LARP experience this past weekend so in an effort to not make eyes cross with all the text I figured I’d break it up some and start with the focal day of the event, Saturday.

How Do We “Codify” Ourselves in MMO’s?

Well…. Look who decided to show up! 😛 Apologies folks for the delay. I’m still blogging, just not as frequently as I would like. Streaming, work IRL and the kitty take up a lot of time, but I wouldn’t trade any of these things for the world. I absolutely love them. What recently sprung this… Continue reading How Do We “Codify” Ourselves in MMO’s?

The Dawn Father, the Dusk Mother, and the Taco

So… okay. Let me explain. I actually have a legitimately good reason for this. Last week my buddies SushiGeisha and Smasshy got eternally bonded (they wanted the two seater Chocobos and teleportation rings) and so I offered to help them with escorting any alts or low level players to the Chapel for friends that may have wanted to attend the wedding… Continue reading The Dawn Father, the Dusk Mother, and the Taco

When It’s Hard to Put the Past Behind You

I’ll be honest; I’ve been very apprehensive on writing this specific topic since the inception of the blog. The thought of revisiting something that I feel both positive and negative emotions for?
