So I’m Into Monster Hunter Now

29 Jul 2013

  You know, just once I’d like to let a fandom walk past me without getting into it. Just once I’d like to be able to claim complete and total ignorance on something. If you’re wondering what I’m going on about there is a franchise called Monster Hunter from Capcom. It is a series of […]

Predator And Stories Thereof

22 Jul 2013

I want to read more of the Predator expanded universe. That was random. Let me back up a bit. I have always loved the Predator. I didn’t really have much of a choice of it. When I was a younger lad my father would tell me bedtime stories. In lieu of something more… conventional he […]

Of Ancient And Long Forgotten Tombs

10 Jun 2013

Recently I was looking at old Dungeons and Dragons adventure modules. To my young readers out there you might be asking what in the name of sanity I’m talking about. Let’s explain it.
