Bughunters and other games on rpgRMforums

My latest attempt at an on-line adventure at rpgRMforums is an adaption of the old Bughunters game from TSR. This was originally done up for their Amazing Engine game system, but I’ll be running it under HARP Sci Fi.

The final release of HARP Sci Fi still isn’t available, waiting on artwork I believe, but […]

Brent’s Sweet and Hot Chili

One of the dishes that I like to cook is Chili. I’ve been messing with various combinations for years and I have come up with one variation that people seem to like alot and I’ve decided to share. Now, I will say that I very seldom actually follow a recipe, so keep in mind that […]

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone, may the holiday season be full of happiness and joy!

And a little rambling, my inner science geek is showing through. What is it about the new Coke commercials that irritates me? Is it the fact that young polar bears are being encouraged to drink Coke? Nope. For some reason I’m okay […]

Short Novels

My wife and I throw a Halloween party every year, and one of the things she likes to do is to come up with some “seasonal” snacks. One of the items that she has acquired in previous years is this mold of a life size brain:

The new thing she picked up this year […]

Hey, that ship looks familiar….

I actually noticed this way back when this book first came out, it’s “Ghost Ship” by Diane Carey and was the first original story published for Star Trek The Next Generation. To be honest, I can’t even remember if the story was any good or not, but I’ve never forgotten one interesting aspect of the […]

Vacation Time!

Well, it’s vacation time for me, have a couple of weeks off work and I’m only leaving town for part of one week, so it’s a chance to plan to get more done than I’ll actually have time for 🙂

There’s a couple of projects to work on, I’ve got a project for ICE that […]
