game of thrones jon snow daenerys targaryen

Fan theories and predictions have been swirling around Game of Thrones ever since the show diverged from the books in Season 5. Here are some of the biggest theories and plot point predictions and whether or not we think they hold any weight. Cersei is not actually pregnant: Likely Cersei is one of the best liars ever conceived. She’ll do anything to get her way, including misleading those around her. And what better way to gain sympathy than pretending to be pregnant? Daenerys is pregnant: Likely If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Game of Thrones, it’s that if something is said repeatedly throughout theRead More →

Recently I got my first chance as a GM running a game of Ten Candles with some friends. Now, this was my first time running a game, so I wanted to start off with something easy. No way was I committing to a multi-session campaign for my first run, so why not play a one-shot? Ten Candles is a dice-rolling co-op tragic horror storytelling game that uses light as one of the game mechanics. Each player makes a character “sheet” in the form of 4 trait note cards: virtue, vice, moment, and brink. Ten d6 dice are prepared for rolling conflicts, where outcomes are unknown.Read More →

Today I forgot my phone at home. So I read the one book that I happened to have with me. Fahrenheit 451. I read the entire thing in a day. Visited old reflections on passages I haven’t thought about in years. And I remembered. The Things It Brought Back I remembered that there once was a time that I thought great and deep thoughts daily. That I was once a person who wrote down her reflections and fought constantly — because I knew that we were worth more than this world that surrounds us. This world that we’ve built out of complacency and the ever-continuousRead More →

Hey, Geeks. Welcome to Your Favorite Thing Sucks, where I get to talk about all the worst parts of your favorite things. And while I’m pretty sure that NO ONE actually considers Electronic Arts their favorite thing, we need to discuss it anyway. Because EA is worse than being your favorite sucky thing. EA actually absorbs your awesome favorite things and then makes them suck when they didn’t before. And that’s getting pretty old. Let’s talk about it. The Things They’ve Ruined EA has absorbed so many unique and interesting game development companies over the years. Studios that focused on deep storylines, interesting characters, expansiveRead More →

It’s February and romance is in the air! For writers, though, the prospect of romance all too often leads to that most tricksy of tasks: penning the dreaded sex scene. Sure, there are writers who have made smutty stories into a craft all their own. They have my respect and my undying envy, because, for the rest of us, we’re all too often left squirming in our chairs, tasked with adding a titillating bit of spice to our tales of action, sci-fi, or fantasy. I was lucky enough to cut my teeth in the supportive bosom of fandom, where there’s a place for everything, fromRead More →
