Mini Adventure

Mini Adventure

John Wick, the creator behind the 7th Seas RPG, is currently running a Kickstarter to create a second edition of the game, and did a call out for writers. Just my luck, I heard about it with a week to go, and half of that week I was on holiday with patchy WiFi. I’d already written for the prompts they provided, but was unable to submit on time. Much sad faces when I realized. But hey, shit happens. I didn’t want that…

How to piss off a Local in 5 easy steps

How to piss off a Local in 5 easy steps

This was written in response to a request for holiday horror stories on Teabot’s show. It was well received, and apparently amusing, so I thought I’d share it here too.  The podcast of the show is here, her oration of the list is excellent. 1. Stand in the middle of the street gawking. Yes, we know the roads are narrow, and the pavements narrower, but they are still roads and cars like to drive down them occasionally without having to honk their horn and…

Next morning they are woken to summons to a council meeting. The group are told they have an hour before hand and ask after hex, as he hadn’t yet returned/ they are told about the temple and go to investigate. They open the portal and Alexis tells the others she can see Hextor’s dead body. Edwin sends in a conjured tiger to retrieve his body, and the group asks the dwarves to place it in cold storage while they attend…

Home-Made, Recyled Dice Bag

Home-Made, Recyled Dice Bag

So I managed to miss one of my friend’s birthdays last week (this shouldn’t surprise any of you) but she’s been needing a dice bag for ages, and I had this thought last night – why not make one? I went rummaging and found an elderly pair of boxers that I could ‘upcycle’ (don’t worry, they were clean), and got to work. First I cut a rectangle out of the pants, then folded the top over the make the place…

Playing with GIMP

Playing with GIMP

Not a whole lot to talk about this week, it’s mostly been Radio stuff that I’ve been doing. However, with that I needed to create myself a advertising banner for the station, so I went off found some pretty brushes and fonts and played around in the GIMP.

Spurred by something Andy told me about my attitude to the station, I made this image. It’s just a pity I can’t print it out. Font: Travelling Typewriter Image from Flickr

A little bit of explanation – I asked my listeners to come up with 5 words for me to write a short story about, so I could read it out on my Friday show. Osku provided wave, book and glass. Vexicus provided beautiful and wings. On a boaring day at work, this is what I came up with.

Darkliquid [The drink]

Darkliquid [The drink]

Since the original post regarding this subject has been lost into the aether, I felt it my duty to remind the world of this… substance. Darkliquid is a drink that was created by a person of the same alias, back in 1999. Dark [the person] being allergic to alcohol was searching for a way to have fun with his friends without this particular substance. One dark night, he and some friends experimented with caffeinated stuff and created Darkliquid. Over the years,…

Omlette of Sickness [-2]

Omlette of Sickness [-2]

Part five of the recipes that I’ve collected while living at Geek Coalition HQ. All of these are incredibly easy, mostly suited to student/ bachelor living, and some of them are even good for you [maybe]. This is great if you want to get out of something for the next couple of days… Take 4 eggs. Slice and dice lots of random things and add to eggs. Fry. Fail to flip correctly. Eat before completly cooked.
