Two predators were chasing after one prey. The first was sitting on top of a suburban train running at top speed, with a loaded pistol in his grip. Somewhere among the skyscrapers within three kilometers radius from the first predator, the second predator–a long-range sniper–was also lying in ambush. Their prey, an unidentified mercenary, had […]
Complex and joyous, Black Panther wins in all the ways that are actually important.
Mary, As we come up on our Easter weekend I cant help but dwell on a question that is the title of a much loved song but a question we rarely think about…did you know? You were around 14 and engaged to be married when you had a crazy dream involving an angel telling you […]
But did you?! I used to think this was such a funny phrase until I started crossfit and became a dramatic athlete (haha!!). Seriously though, the metcons this week were BRUTAL to say the least. Usually the HIIT workouts aren’t as tough as the crossfit ones. I mean don’t get me wrong, they really challenge […]
Happy Friday! Today I want to talk about a little side project I did for my parents a while ago. A few years ago, she purchased a new construction home in Dallas, TX, and we are still finding issues. Last time I was here, I ended up having to rewire some bathroom fans, and replace […]
There would appear to be a good chance that anybody who has been subjected on a somewhat regular basis to the reporting of major American news media outlets during the past six years has at least heard mention of something called “The Satanic Temple.” Since 2013, the group (abbreviated “TST”) has attracted a significant amount […]
Crawford climbs back in the ring Saturday night in a pay-per-view bout at The Garden, as in Madison Square Garden (yes siree) against Amir Khan (a Brit) in order to defend the WBO welterweight belt. This fight will, no doubt, be the highest paying event in Crawford’s career. Good for him, I say…and I’ll be […]
Avengers: Endgame is the culmination and grand finale to Marvel’s 11-year Infinity Saga. It is the second part to last year’s mega blockbuster film Avengers: Infinity War, and releases on April 24 or 26, 2019, depending on which country you are from. During Avengers Infinity War, we saw half of our favorite characters disintegrate into dust […]
On June 28th, 1890 Emma Powers Cranmer had her first and only child named Frances Willard Cranmer in Aberdeen, South Dakota. Emma was an active women’s suffragist that traveled around the United States attending marches and giving speeches. It’s no surprise she named her child after prominent suffragist, Frances Willard. Emma’s daughter Frances would go […]
Marvel Fever is running wild right now. With the recent success of Captain Marvel and with Avengers: Endgame just around the corner, I had the completely original idea to rank every MCU superhero. Before we get into this, a few things: -Each hero will be judged on a 100-point scale based on the following categories: Superhero […]
Having played and gamemastered D&D for over 25 years, under three different editions of the game, I’ve noticed the unfilled niche for an elementalist class. Well, here it is.
I am absolutely NOT a mechanically inclined person. Part of the reason is that I never had someone to mentor me, as many other boys do when they were growing up. But that is not the whole story, or even the major part of it. My brain simply doesn’t work that way. This has put […]

For Mandolin O’Dorke it should have been an average stroll in an average wood on an average day. The sun shone in a ho-hummish medium sort of way, Goldilocksian in that it wasn’t too hot or cold. He felt okay, nicely poised between happy and miserable, in one of those fence-sitting moods that can soar […]
Magical items on Krynn are often rare and usually supported by a particular story. According to the original Dragonlance adventure modules, many 5th level characters would have +1 magical weapons and armor, but this may have had a lot to do with conventions for AD&D modules at the time. (+1 magical items might have been […]
