Fixed Digest Image Links

I’ve recently added a new feature to the blog which posts my microblog activity in digest format. Part of this system takes any activity that has associated images and displays thumbnails at the bottom of the post. For the most part this seems to be working well but there was a bug where the images […]

GameStorm 10 – 4th Edition Demos

The first day at GameStorm was a booming success for me. Today was essentially a chance for those who had preregistered to get an early start. Though I don’t have enough experience to say with any authority, it is my understanding that more gaming conventions these days are having early start days. On the agenda […]

GameStorm 10

GameStorm 10 starts tomorow. I’ve been looking forward to it ever since I first heard about it at Nerdcon 2007. I had no idea that there was a decent gaming convention so close to home. So far I’ve signed up for a D&D 4th edition demo, Shadowrun for beginners, Living GreyHawk for beginners, a beginners […]

Rocket Completed Basic Training

It’s been quite a challenging experience adopting Rocket. He is so full of energy and still has a lot of puppy in him so he’s easily distracted. He did show signs of being a quick learner though and the idea of some formalized training instruction appealed to me. Eight weeks ago we started Beginner Dog […]

Living Arcanis and Nerdcon 2007

It was with a great deal of will power, I went to my first gaming convention. I had never done such a thing before and knew of nobody into the hobby who could join me. After the great time I had at World Wide D&D Gaming Day though I was determined to make the best […]

Hope everyone had a fun “Worldwide D&D Gaming Day”

Today, November 3rd, was Worldwide D&D Gaming Day. From what I can tell this was the fourth year they’ve run this particular event. Beyond just encouraging everyone they can reach to go out and game today, they also had a special event setup at participating game shops around the world. One of my local gaming […]

Unscheduled hiatus for JD’s Musical Alchemy

Someone might have noticed, though I have no idea who it could have been, that it’s been a while since my last episode of JD’s Musical Alchemy. Specifically, it’s been almost two months. I’m sure the world is wondering, “Has JDMA podfaded?” The short answer is, “No.” While it is true it has been too […]

Lamenting for a polyhedral life style

Have you ever felt like your life was missing something or even simply not playing out the way you wish it was? This is a problem I’ve been struggling with lately. As a kid, say about 10 or so, I was really into pencil and paper based role playing games. That is to say, I […]

Beautiful custom V-ROD

We were out taking a walk the other week and came across this beautiful custom V-ROD. The customizations were slight but gave it a very striking look.
