The Hero Who Wants Something

“Whaddaya want?” Asks the barkeep. The cowboy across the counter flashes a winning smile. “Nothin’.” He says with a smile. “I’m perfectly content, I am. Don’t have any cows to herd, chickens to feed, farms to run, criminals to apprehend, friends to save, princesses to rescue from dragons, battles to fight, or wars to win.Continue reading “The Hero Who Wants Something”

The Fourth Pillar of a Great Writer: Honesty

Welcome, one and all to the incredibly– Wait, what’s that, you say? This joke has already gotten old? Preposterous! I’ve only used it for three blog posts! Three! Why can’t these readers be content with the same old jokes day after day? It boggles the mind!

The Third Pillar of a Great Writer: Ingenuity

We’re back and it’s Monday. I don’t know a ton of great Monday jokes, but those I do are sure to start productive weeks. Okay, that was actually a terrible joke, but what do you expect from a guy who doesn’t have the courage or decency to google one?

Best of the Blog: When Metagaming is a Problem (And When It’s Not)

But ha, that’s where you’re wrong, Cthulhu! He’s no narrator…he’s a Dungeon Master! You may be able to break the Fourth Wall, but you’ll never be able to withstand the might of an abusive Dungeon Master bent on revenge! By the way, make one hundred constitutions saving throws. You’ll regret breaking the game…if you live.Continue reading “Best of the Blog: When Metagaming is a Problem (And When It’s Not)”

The Second Pillar of a Great Writer: Creativity

The Last of Us, Episode 9 Review: Thanks, I’m Out Before Season 2

We interrupt the Second Pillar of a Great Writer to give you this important news: It’s…complicated. If you want to know how this episode went, it was overall pretty good (with minor complaints I’ll get into in a second), but, as is my wont, I have to give a critique on the whole of theContinue reading “The Last of Us, Episode 9 Review: Thanks, I’m Out Before Season 2”

The First Pillar of a Great Writer: Fortitude

Wait, hold on: where’s my The Last of Us review? Ah, eagle-eyed reader, you’ve caught me in the act. Daylight savings cut me to the quick last night, and I promise it didn’t have anything to do Octopath Traveler 2. But if I’m honest, I wasn’t really looking forward to watching it, as I don’tContinue reading “The First Pillar of a Great Writer: Fortitude”

The Four Pillars of the Great Writer

Screw it, let’s do something generic. If you haven’t seen something like this before, you’ve been living under a rock since the conception of the human race. We’ve always had programs, plans, roadmaps, step-by-step instructions, manuals, and guiding mentors.
