Players and Gamemasters often share the responsibility of the driver’s seat of the adventure, with each one responding and reacting to each other to create a fun and memorable story. Every once in a while, though, the players forcibly eject the DM and take control of the game in a bizarre, awesome, and unintentional way.

But, over the last three years my painting output has almost completely dried up, reaching drought territory and not recovering. I’m aiming, hopefully, to remedy that.
Its been a busy week here for Dark Souls. Its been fomenting carpel tunnel in my hands at a prodigious rate, which is fine with me. Its like playing a strange and interactive movie at this point, and I absolutely adore it. So, Who’ve I beaten, lately? Come on in and see, and remember. SPOILERS, SO MANY SPOILERS
While I’ve repeatedly introduced my current D&D character: Clovis the Gremlin (in the first day I changed his moniker from Brutal to Gremlin on a whim. Sue me.) I have not expounded on his further adventures and expiditions, nor have I rounded out the cast of characters he’s been running with. So Lets start that.

Many everyday conveniences we take for granted are a very long way off, and often haven’t even been thought of as a something that people should even desire. Come, lets take a look at what fantasy middle ages housing would look like!
