Very early in my D&D playing career, I ran a heavily sea-focused campaign in Eberron. Among my players was a man by the name of Eddie, one of my all time favourite players and dungeon masters. I cannot remember the name of the first ship they sailed in, I remember that it was a rundown junker, splintered and warped wood, ragged sails and frayed rope, but the figurehead was pristine, and clearly made of different material, a pale narwhal complete with ivory horn. Might have been the Icebreaker? Can’t recall. The first thing Eddie’s character – a druid called Wren – did was straddle the narwhal. (more…)
Wearables are everywhere; whether it’s a wearable gaming device, or the latest in health tech. Fitbit is one of those companies who really helped make wearable health devices a major part of our lives. Last year, I was given my Fitbit Charge 3 for Christmas, which I have been wearing regularly for most of the year so far. The more I use it, the more I love it. From the pedometer, to the heart rate tracker, there are some excellent built-in tools. Here are my thoughts on the tech, as well as what more you can do with it.
Apps that make my life easier are way up my street. For years, I’ve been using MyFitnessPal on and off, which whenever I use it, sees me lose a good chunk of weight. Whenever I get serious, I lose between 10lbs to a couple of stone using the app. Whatever your requirements are, whether you’re looking to lose weight, or if you’re looking to improve yourself, I can’t recommend this app enough. However, rather than just tell you that I recommend it, here’s what it does, what it can be used for and some of the other features.
Many video games, especially PC based ones, allow you to modify them. You usually are given a restricted API to work with, allowing you to manipulate the game in specific ways. Normally, you can’t really break the game per se, but you can indeed mess up with mods. But when you make a killer mod, people worldwide can benefit from it. I found a niche issue in Elder Scrolls Online, which I am writing a mod for.
This article is just a discussion about how I go about learning what I need to make a mod, as well as some info on the mod I’m working on.
Last night, I think many of us received an email that said it was Kickstarter’s birthday. An amazing accomplishment to say the least, Kickstarter has helped so many projects come to life – and also seen plenty of failed projects too. Labours of love have been showcased, as well as plenty of ideas that were just too ambitious. Either way, we love Kickstarter and all of the wonderful ideas it hosts.
It’s been nearly a year since I first heard of and played The Old Hellfire Club. I am very pleased to announce that they are now live on Kickstarter. Here is why you should now go and check it out and back their campaign.
Have you ever wanted to write for a living? I think many of us have, even if it’s only a passing interest. I’m one of the many people who have wanted to do this, so, I guess this is my way of saying that I’m now a Blogger For Hire. But what does that mean, why did I get to this point and what sort of services can I offer? More importantly, if you were interested in doing something similar, what do you need to know?
Yesterday (26th March 2019), Article 13 was passed by the European Parliament. A while back, we wrote an article that I think many of you would have agreed with (or at least seemed to agree with at the time). Unfortunately, it appears that our battle for Article 13 to be denied has been, temporarily in vein. Whilst we can only speculate what this means for the future, here are some of the facts that we know of so far.
