Gahlok-Kal Attacks!

Gahlok-Kal Attacks! (151/293)

  1. Oh heck yes board games! I feel like I should check out Firefly sometime since it looks up my alley. From the rest of your list, I love Coup and I've enjoyed Codenames when I've played it. If you like Coup, you gotta check out Love Letter. It's similar in gameplay and another really quick pick up game. I also appreciate seeing 7 Wonders listed. I really enjoy that game but I still can't quite grok it (high Complexity, as you'd say). If you want a game for two people, I do really like Pandemic. It's fun, 'cuz it's cooperative, and pulling off a win feels great. That said, its theming is a little less fun these days. For medium-big groups, Cosmic Encounter is one of my go-tos. It's so gloriously unbalanced and chaotic that it can be quite fun, especially for strategic people> One of my recent loves is Blood Rage. It's very competitive but also feels super fair. Probably more cut throat than anything, but it's great.
  2. Honestly someone should have painted the a Mask of Fire all infected-like and submitted a constraction matoran wearing it.
  3. Hey, these look great! I don't know much about Ninjago's lore, but I love how much personality you've infused all of them with. Plus the disjointed limbs on the video-game-boss-guy? *chef's kiss* Also really like how they aren't just plain portraits but are action shots, makes them all that much more interesting. Can't wait to see what else you've got in store.
  4. I mentioned last entry that I was doing NaNo. I'm a glutton for punishment and seem to only be able to really put words on the page when threatened by an arbitrary deadline that hangs over my head like a blunted Sword of Damocles. I'm rewriting a novel into something that should hopefully be fit for consumption by some dear friends who've offered to give it a read. But in the meantime. Over the summer a short story I wrote got sold! It found a home at Khoreo Magazine, a lovely press that also produced an audiobook edition. You can read it on their website here, though fair warning, it's not quite BZP safe, so ask your parents' permission before going online and all that. And yeah, that's my ~real name~ on it since the internet is now a place where you reveal who you are and anonymity is an illusion that doesn't sell ad money. I also got a really cool key image: Still wigs me out that I'm technically a paid and published author (and a member of the SFWA now!). It's been a long journey since those days spent writing comedies here on BZP nearly nineteen years ago. On that note, what until you see where my days making cartoons here got me.
  5. It's joshuat, because I'm very creative. If it looks like I'm blazing through words it's because this is a rewrite of a project I spent NaNo 18, 19, and 20 working on and then the last six months working on and fixing an outline. Right now I'm in write-like-you're-running-out-of-time mode. And yeah, I've found NaNo to be a wonderful stressor that helps me stop caring about making everything perfect and focusing instead on just putting words to paper. Which, tbh, is usually the hardest part for me. I'll probably write something about writing soon, I've got some news there and, hey, this is my blog and I can do whatever the karz I want.
  6. My wizened BZP brain is flabbergasted at the size of that gif, but that emoticon brings me all back. And cheers!
  7. Man, I'm realizing how much I miss these blogs. Maybe it's the impending implosion of Twitter or how Facebook's functionality has torpedoed itself into oblivion. So maybe I'll start writing here more, doing the old blogging thing used to be a thing. In the meantime, it's NaNoWrimo and I've an unhinged screed that I'm tryna turn into a proper novel.
  8. This looks super neat. I may mess around with it later, but I'm required to ask: Akaku when?
  9. I think there's a difference between recall where it's a "Hey, if you bought this, sell it back to us" and sets being pulled from shelves, like Lesovikk.
