Cults. You’d think they’d get along, having that whole “worship a long-forgotten god that wants to destroy everything” bit. But such is not the case. So they’re warring with one-another. Though, cults by their nature tend to not have enough to have whole armies worth of ...

I’ve seen, personally, what can happen when a side-project takes on a full life of its own and feel like it’s grown beyond what you can handle. That’s kinda what happened for One Page Rules. Well, they took a bit of a break, but now they’re back. And not only that, they’...

They say that necessity is the mother of invention. Well, during war, there’s a lot of necessity to make better weapons than the opponents. It’s sort of a life-or-death type of thing. As such, the gear that the warring factions were using at the start of WWII versus what they were using d...

One of the first video games that I played heavily were the X-Wing/TIE Fighter games. I played the bloody hell out of them (when not playing Mechwarrior 2, that is). One of the few ships on the Imperial side that actually had some shields was the Alpha-Class Star Wing. It was kinda crazy to actually ...

Within the demonic hordes of the Uthuk Y’llan of Runewars, there are heroes. No, most of the outside world wouldn’t use that term to describe them, probably preferring something a bit more like, “grotesque monster” or “awful horror” or “not a really nice guy,...
