  • Startide
    As some of you might know, I moonlight as a musician. For the past two years, I’ve been working on a full-length record entitled Startide. I guess it should come as a surprise to nobody tracking this blog that it’s about, well, space.
  • The Fall of Species -F978
    …direct Ancestral Memory provided many survival advantages for this species (In fact, it was a random neurological mutation they received while still in pre-society).

The skill was inherent, and for this reason, species -f978 was able to advance at an explosive velocity.

    It’s 2014: my junior year of college. It’s 3 A.M. on a Saturday night, and tomorrow is the big day. I scan my notes, check my maps, make sure my minis are organized and my dice pools are set. Tomorrow is the final episode of our three-years long science fiction D&D campaign. It is the culmination and climax of hundreds of hours of writing and hundreds more hours of play.
