Time Out!

Getting a bit burned out and need to recharge my batteries.  As a homeschooling family, the fall resumption of class takes a larger than normal toll on my free time.  But don’t worry, this old soldier won’t be fading away any tome soon, nor will he be leaving any...

An Old Man Looks at

For the most part, the things I review or talk about are those that excite me enough to sit down at the keyboard.  That means most of my posts are about things that I like, and that’s a lot of things.  I like liking things. That’s not always the...

Guest Post at Castalia House This Week

Monday the good folks over at Castalia House published a guest post by yours truly:  Wargaming for Wargamers Who Don’t Have Time to Wargame.  As a wargame-related article, I had thought it would go up today, but they snuck a high fast one past me here.  It’s not too...

On Hiatus

It’s been a good year.  By breaking things up more than normal, I’ve been able to produce content every other day for the first quarter of 2016.  Unfortunately, it is probably going to be a while before anything else appears in this space.  My month long business trip is...

Marching On Saint Francis

Looks like your humble host is going to be working in San Francisco for the month of March.  If any reader out there has some time and could shoot me an email about the gaming scene, or maybe wants to get together with a poor wayfaring stranger hit me...

The Podcast We’ve Been Waiting For

If you’re one of those poor bastards that grinds through a long commute on a daily basis, then you can’t get enough decent podcasts.  There are a hot steaming pile of them for tabletop RPGs, a few of them are even worth a listen, but very very few for...
