That Is Not Dead Which Can Eternal Lie...

...and in strange aeons, even this blog may be updated.

Believe or not I have a half-written post for Temple of Terror that I intend to complete and publish before the end of the year. Two earlier drafts died face-down in the muck in the intervening years (they were not good), but this one I think will make it.


My grown-up daddy's life doesn't afford a lot of time for writing nonsense anymore and such time as I do have for creative endeavour is largely consumed by DUNGEONS & FUKKEN DRAGONS.

Recently I decided to share some of the homebrew stuff I've done for D&D, so if you have any interest in such matters you can check out the new "companion blog" over here:

Teaser of Terror #5

Sproing!
Might be you thought I was gone... just been busy/lazy, had another kid, and have had segments of my creative imagination colonized by a Pathfinder campaign me and some bros are running.

(I did write once that the Fighting Fantasy 2d6 is a gateway dice to more hardcore polyhedrons, how I chortled at that one! But oops, it's real).

But the Great Work is not yet over... what else will there be to put on my epitaph?

Teaser of Terror #1

Hi readers,

Well, it has been a struggle to work on the blog lately but when I picked up Temple of Terror and glimpsed that SERPENT GUARD, I was reinvigorated. He is a beautiful, bright-eyed bubble of enthusiasm and I simply adore him.

Something about the irrepressible spirit shining from his mirthful, ophidian gaze made me imagine him photo-bombing the covers of other books, blowing up the spot of the other, more serious FF poster boys and being furiously chased off set a few seconds later.

After I had stopped congratulating myself over this amazing idea I decided to create a series of these alternate covers to release as little nuggets of content to string you all along while I avoid doing any hard work on the next post.

Here is the first one:

"Any room for one mooooooore?"

One last thought before I move on...

Whenever you say "Mad Max" everybody immediately thinks of "Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior", but did you know there was a Mad Max 1?

It's true, though very few people have seen it. But I am one of them so I can impart some information to you. Basically it is about some bogans chasing each other around Queensland. Mad Max spends half the movie cooling out with his girlfriend, which is nice for him but hey, my man, the audience paid to see a car do a jump.

There's not really that much connection between the films apart from Mel Gibson and lots of driving. It is kind of on some bullshucks really, which is why nobody really thinks about it or mentions it.

But if you must have a taste, here is a bull crap scene from Mad Max 1.
