Sorcerers and Snobbery

While I’ll be the first to admit, I’ve only openly ‘loved’ Dungeons and Dragons these past few years, it is, nonetheless, a lifelong passion of mine, properly kindled during the Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights eras, and complimented with a love of the fantasy genre that has spanned The Wheel of Time and The Lord…More

Candlekeep Mysteries

I bloody love Candlekeep. Make no mistake about it, Baldur’s Gate was my introduction to the Dungeons and Dragons universe and Candlekeep the first location I ever truly explored. At the time, everything about being constrained to the BG story annoyed me – I hated being forced to being Gorion’s Ward and having a pre-existing…More

Aramoor

The islet village of Aramoor was originally a trading hub, though has increasingly fallen from this status to simply becoming the home for a small collection of (very) rich nobles who established themselves there in Aramoor’s trading highs, and the supporting industry that keeps them in the lap of luxury. The most well-known of these…More

Bexley

The township of Bexley is largely concentrated around the House of Hathor, a large religious complex within the township, serving as both a place of worship as well as a specialist school established for clerics in their later or post graduation years of scholarship. The Head Cleric, Archbishop Varbun Lei, acts as the head of…More

Easthallow

The mostly-frozen waters of Easthallow Bay welcome you to the crisp always-winter air of this hardened farming region, best known for growing robust, quality produce all year around. The relative stability of the cold climate allows for a year-round harvest cycle, though the plentiful harvest trade-off is that produce varieties are limited to larger root…More

Power Rangers Battle for the Grid

You have to admit, Xbox Game Pass is pretty good. For a game that I’d never pick up off the shelf at EB Games, for an IP that I grew up with and I love, this was a great way to quickly consume a rather mediocre game that seemed to focus on exploiting the Power…More

Assassins of Kings

I knew about King Foltest only because he was one of the primary Gwent heroes in The Witcher 3, but I never really made the connection between ‘the card’ and ‘the character’, but it all makes perfect sense really when you think about the number of cards based on NPCs in W3 as it is,…More

37.733 Miles

TT Isle of Man I hate motorcycle games. Other than the fact that I’m not very good at them, there’s a good chance that there’s a deep psychological trigger for me reminding me that I’m not very good at riding the real thing either. In either case, I’m a sucker for a free game and…More

From Pajitnov, With Love

I quite like Tetris. I think it’s one of the few timeless games that has managed to find its way into the hands of people from about three or four generations – and do you know what? It’s still just as fun as it ever has been. I was a little surprised to see in…More

Blacker than Black

For as long as there have been Tom Clancy video games, I have been in love with the franchise. Truth be told, I’ve never really liked Clancy’s style of writing because it is technically and character heavy, but his contemporary and near-future military setting has always appealed to me, as has the lore he built-out,…More
