Ponygirl Accident

Trouble at the track. Can they ever be extricated?

Worldbuilding Wednesday 9/21/22: Complicated Magic

Sometimes I randomgen a spell or magic item that is so complicated to describe I know it won’t fit on a twitter post. So I’ve saved them for here.   Complicated Magic Book of Dragon Coloring:  Contrary to popular belief, most dragons lead dull existences. When they’ve gotten to an age where there are few …

The True Face of Sauron

Say the name Sauron and most people will think of this armored character from The Lord of the Rings movies, or a giant burning eye. But in the books Tolkien never spoke of Sauron’s Third Age physical form except in abstracts, saying only that he was  “not fair” which could mean anything. So, inspired by …

Worldbuilding Wednesday 9/14/22: Deep Sky Objects

Like imaginary galaxies, imaginary nebulas are also simple to create. These three were done in Wombo, which is designed specifically to make trading card NFTs. But it’s also fine for other stuff. These randomgens were tweaked in Write With Transformer, so if some of them don’t make sense, that’s why. WWT is part of the …

Worldbuilding Wednesday 9/7/22: Galaxies

Galaxies are one of those things that it’s easy to create a picture of. I remember in the 1970s all an artist needed was an airbrush, one or two pigments, and a fine paintbrush for depicting individual stars. When Photoshop and other painting programs came along, you could do the same thing with digital tools …

Unicorn in the Woods

Now that’s one funny-looking unicorn!

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power [Review]

  Much has been said about The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, Amazon Prime’s new series set in the Second Age of  Middle Earth. Some fans are enthusiastic about the idea, others skeptical. (I can understand the latter after recently watching The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: Battle of …

The World of the Castrati
[Reading Challenge 2022]

  The World of the Castrati by Patrick Barbier Souvenir Press, 1998 [Challenge # 32 : A book taking place in Europe or is about Europe.] I got this book from one of my favorite places to get free reading material, my neighbor’s Little Free Library which has rarely failed me. I’d enjoyed both the …
