Do not disturb the dead, lest you feel their wrath… that is certainly what is going through your mind, having broken into the Maeshowe tomb and finding yourself blocked in. Where to go? What to do? How to dig a way out without losing your wits on the way? It’s up to you if you want to fade away into history, or if you will live to tell your own tale.

Bang bang – I shot you down / bang bang – you hit the ground / bang bang – that awful sound / bang bang – I shot my baby down. // Now you only need to ask yourself one question – will you be the successful bullet-dodging Neo, or will you be Nancy Sinatra’s hapless victim?

Veilwraith – a solo review

As the Overlord’s minions overthrew the Sprawl, in the distance a cacophony of discordant tones took control of every living being – shattering their eardrums or whatever they used for hearing. And then came the Rending, and the world and all colors in it ended. Welcome to the monochrome world of Veilwraith.

Orc wizard – an opinion piece

Many of you may not know I’m a professional writer by trade. My first ‘real’ job was working as an editor for a local newspaper. This newspaper has allowed me to grow and develop my skills as a writer. One of the things I started doing over the years was writing a monthly (or at least I tried to have one every month) piece about whatever it was that occupied my mind. While I now work somewhere else, these pieces I continue to write. To get things off my chest, to chime in on a hot topic – to put my thoughts into words onto a screen and onto paper. Today I am sharing my latest piece. In it, I take the example of stereotypes in games like Dungeons & Dragons and talk about inclusion, which is (or should be) a primary motive to change things. Why change? Because it helps make the world a better place for more people.

Cthulhu: Death May Die – a solo review

I generally despise action-packed blockbuster movies, but I wouldn’t turn down a chance to star in one. If you feel the same, then Cthulhu: Death May Die is the game for you. It’s beer and pretzels instead of wine and French cheese; it’s the action-filled pulp flick instead of a cultivated project with witty dialogue and deeper meaning. There is no deeper meaning here – it’s all about hitting the ground running until either your team or the Old One is D-E-A-D-dead. Sometimes that’s all you need – saving the multiverse, one cliche horror trope at a time.
