  1. Extended absence

    Well, I haven't been around here for some time.

    Somewhere around the beginning of May, I tweaked my sciatic nerve and spent a couple of months on my back, and then a couple more alternating between walking and prone. Sitting down became something I could tolerate for extended periods in September, I guess. Then the kidney stones hit in October and gave me something else to worry about.

    At any rate, I haven't been using the computer much, never mind spending any time online. ...

  2. Damn it all.....

    by , 12-06-2009 at 05:41 AM (Random musings of an insane writer)

  4. Divergent Thinking: RPG in Elementary Education

    With the economy going the way it goes I too found myself laid off back in April from the print industry. The lay off and subsequential absence of jobs in my field forced me back to school and rethinking my career. Surprisingly, I found Early Childhood Education to be my interest and now have completed my first semester at Mission College in the field. I have enjoyed my classes so much that I plan on getting my Masters in the field in a few years.

  5. Tempting FATE: The Basics and Aspects

    As with writing a novel or doing academic research, the first thing to do when hacking FATE is look to see what work has been done before you. So, we go to the Series of Tubes for inspiration in reflavoring Spirit of the Century for use with Star Wars.

    Over at, there are two bits by the poster Kiero - one on tweaking FATE, and one on creating a Saga Edition inspired Star Wars hack. There are lots more over there (as well as over at the Evil Hat wiki), but I think these two will ...
