The Captives of Kaag, Attempt 1, Part 6

Well! Continuing an adventure that, as time goes on, seems suspiciously similiar to a traditional ‘dungeon crawl’! But is it a dungeon crawl CLASSIC?? Only time will tell. Any description of mine can’t possibly add to the Dungeons & Dragons-esque goodness of the following paragraph, which portrays the hall into which I have walked :… Continue reading The Captives of Kaag, Attempt 1, Part 6

The Captives of Kaag – Attempt 1, Part 5

Here [we] go again…. Sorry, I just googled “show me the music video that most represents the 80s”, and that was the first result…… (and the second, third and fourth) Aside : Read “I Want My MTV” by Craig Marks and Rob Tannenbaum for an awesome oral history of the MTV years.  It is awesome.

As I’m writing this, I am also following on twitter the news of another (!) mass shooting in the United States.  As my hopes are with those affected, my mind keeps returning to the dark humour of this Onion article.

The Captives of Kaag – Background

  Miss me? Hopefully yes, because now I’m all over Lone Wolf, ready to take on the last book that I actually physically own. And what a delightfully morbid front cover it is.
