Making Magic

By | 2019-05-01T21:36:59+00:00 May 1st, 2019|Blog|1 Comment

So, this article is written primarily for people who understand the primary rules of magic. In a conversation about magic, it's sometimes difficult to write without revealing methods. I'll do my best, though - and if you're not into magic, this might be the little spark you need! A few years ago, I created a magic routine called Verna's Belongings that was heavily themed for one purpose - to be presented as part of a tabletop gaming session. Very recently, I think I've found a really particular niche. I've started a new project with an old project's name, Forging Fields, [...]

DM Survival Guide: The H4CF DM

By | 2019-04-29T00:35:57+00:00 April 29th, 2019|Blog|0 Comments

After participating in Heroes for CF this past weekend - I feel like I've earned some medal of merit or something. #heroesforcf is a marathon day of tabletop gaming in benefit of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. This year, we raised nearly 12K for charity in a13-hour day of RPG glory. I was the DM at table three, playing host to three separate three-hour sessions where each party would delve into a dungeon affected by the changes made from the group before them. A living, breathing, changing world - the exact way I enjoy DM'ing. The day was split into three sessions [...]

Angor, Second Edition!

By | 2019-03-12T02:11:46+00:00 March 12th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Welcome back to another round of Hobby ADD! Today, your host will be Bill Dungey! (Can't you head the 90's game show music?) So, I've been playing a bunch of D&D lately. I'm playing most often in a homebrew world I've been working on for a while. It's called Angor - it's a province in a larger kingdom that isn't 'settled'. Lots to explore, fight and run away from in this little document - feel free to rip, steal, distribute and copy!

The Imposter Syndrome

By | 2018-05-22T02:11:23+00:00 April 13th, 2018|Blog|0 Comments

Impostor syndrome (also known as impostor phenomenon, fraud syndrome or the impostor experience) is a concept describing individuals who are marked by an inability to internalize their accomplishments and have a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud". Last year, my wife and I started batting around the idea that I should extend my coaching from the once-yearly tee-ball leauge to the local school. I suggested that since they didn't have a wrestling team, I might be able to lend a hand in that department. Here's the thing about telling people you'll do something - you have to do [...]

Chest punch: a lost cultural rite

By | 2018-04-11T14:15:28+00:00 April 11th, 2018|Blog|2 Comments

Last year, I participated in the GoRuck Tough Challenge. If you want to read my after-action, check this out. GoRuck is best summed up like this; good livin'. Lifting heavy shit, getting after it and pressing forward under a brick-weighted pack for the sake of testing yourself and becoming something more. That's something I've been researching a lot lately - becoming something more. See, I've got this basic hypothesis. I believe men are losing a cultural foothold on who we are through a lack of rites of passage, dissassociation from the tribe and no 'great struggle' to fight against. I've [...]

Journaling: a blended Bujo / 5-minute method

By | 2018-04-09T00:42:09+00:00 April 9th, 2018|Blog|5 Comments

When I cracked open my 4th journal - and we'll come back to that - I was a little too focused on the system behind it. I tend to operate like that, attaching systematic approaches to the things I'm involved in. I began by researching the various page designs others had come up with for the Bullet Journal. If you've never heard of the Bullet Journal - open a new tab right here. I've since adopted a number of really low-key, minimal layouts for monthly and daily logs. Truthfully, I don't use my journal for much more than that. I [...]

Angor: Next steps for a well-received campaign setting

By | 2018-03-20T14:04:17+00:00 March 20th, 2018|Blog|2 Comments

Over the weekend, I put Angor up on Reddit. After a couple hours, I had received a bunch of really nice feedback and a couple hundred upvotes. One particular comment got me to thinking; So, are you going to try and sell Angor to a publisher/have a pay-what-you-want model for releasing this? I've thought of that since I started putting together Angor. It brings up a few things inside my head that have been an internal argument since I was a teenager. I remember when, in my first year of high-school, a teacher told me that the internet was not [...]

Up and Down and Down and Up

By | 2018-03-20T11:49:36+00:00 March 8th, 2018|Blog|0 Comments

It's been a few months since I've posted here. Maybe that's just the way this space is destined to be. The on-again-off-again relationship from every sitcom. Not as funny but almost as interesting. Since the past few months have passed, I've figured a number of things out; - I've had a more steady, ongoing diet. It's almost like, when I eat for the sake of fuel it's all good because I require performance. Further than that, though, I've really managed to connect with the after effects of poor dietary decisions. I'm tired of the 'food hangover' that comes with over [...]
