We’re making our way there, ladies and gentlemen. The previous weekend is as far from us as the next one is to us. Have you started getting together any plans? We’ve got the gaming day at the library coming up this weekend. Gonna hang out and play some Guild Ball and hopefully Fujian Trad...

We’ve arrived, beautiful readers. Friday is here and we’re making our way through it to the weekend. It won’t be long now and there’ll be a couple great days of just hanging out and maybe doing some gaming. I’m happy because my friend came back from LVO and brought me th...

The week rolls along (and I’ve got Ace of Spades playing), so you know I’m working at a pretty fevered tempo. If I’m going to keep up this pace as I work on TGN stuff and then get busy with some work on (redacted), I need to get a good meal of bite-sized gaming stories. […]...

We’ve made it back to Friday. The weekend stretches before us like an empty canvass, ready to be painted with all the colors in life’s palate… Man, listening to Chuck Mangione while typing posts will do something to me, apparently. But anyway, it’s time to stuff ourselves once...

The middle of the week and the start of a new month. 2017 is already 1/12 in the books. January sure did go by quick (at least for me). Before you know it, we’ll be announcing Black Friday sales. Ok, maybe that’s a bit much. Plenty of things to do between now and then. And […]...

The weekend is pretty much upon us. We just need to finish up this afternoon and we’ll be there. Do you have plans? I’m still unsure. Though I think I want to make a cheesecake, because it’s been a while since I’ve made cheesecake. Probably make more strawberry-lime sauce to g...

We’re halfway there, everyone. Midway point of the week. The weekend’s coming ever-closer. Hopefully you have some sort of gaming plans scheduled. I mean, it’s the weekend. Don’t want to just be sitting at home doing nothing (though, actually, there’s something to be sai...

And we’ve made it, once again, to Friday. Woot! The weekend lays ahead of us. If you’re lucky, you’ve got some gaming scheduled. That’s what I’ll be doing. In the meantime, we’ve got our regular set of bite-sized gaming stories for you. On the platter today we have...

And we’re already to Wednesday. It helps the week go along when you’re off on Monday. It’s also my friend Gilbert’s birthday! Yo. Gilbert. You old, dude. Anyway, along with cake and ice cream, we should fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Today on the platter we have: M...

Friiiiiiiidaaaaaaay! Woo! We’ve made it, everyone! At least for me, it was a nice, calm, “standard” week. As a creature of habit, I’m very grateful for that. Many of us here in the US are also getting a 3-day weekend, what with Martin Luther King Jr. Day being this upcoming Mo...

We’re once more halfway through the week. So far, it’s been a pretty standard week. After the chaos of the week before, I’m not complaining about that at all. I’m also not complaining about the temperatures we’re supposed to get to today here in Atlanta. I might just ope...

Hey everyone. Well, the first week of the year is coming to a close. It’s been… an odd one. Monday I had off. Tuesday I had to take my car in for repairs (which got finished up on Thursday, since they had to order in a part). Wednesday and Thursday I had some stomach issues. […]...

It’s the penultimate day of the year. 2016 is on its way out. Lots of people are going to be partying about it. I’m sure some of that will include gaming. At least, I hope it does for you. Anyway, if you’re going to be partying to midnight tomorrow, you’ll want to stock up on ...

The final week of 2016 continues on. I know a lot of people are enjoying a bit of a break here at the end of the year. Many game companies are taking a little bit of time off. But that’s not to say we don’t have a good bit of bite-sized stories to snack on. […]...

Hey guys. You might’ve noticed we didn’t have a Terrain Corner yesterday. That’s because I was whisked away to help work on a super-ultra-deep-covert project. Or, being that a lot of companies are currently on holiday, there wasn’t much to report on. One of the two. Anyway, so...

The week rolls along. Hopefully it’s going well for you. Mine’s been very busy. But that’s meant things are going by quickly. Quickly is good and bad in some cases, as there’s a lot to still get done by the end of the year. With Christmas this week and then New Year’s th...

Man, it is busy over here on this side of the screen. Pretty much all week there’s been stuff going on. I’m sure that’s part of why it feels like it’s really flown by… And I’ve still not really gotten a handle on what I’m going to do with my D&D group to...

Today’s a day to celebrate. Why? It’s my 5th anniversary with TGN. Yes, on this day, 5 years ago, I made my first post on the site. It was the new plastic Warp Wolf kit that Privateer Press was coming out with. Oh how gaming has changed since then. I remember having a conversation, a [&he...

I technically have the day off today. Why? Because CMON went public on the Hong Kong stock exchange and they’re giving us the day off to celebrate. But the news doesn’t stop just because the office is closed. Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow, nor slush, shal keep me from giving you your ...

It’s the last day of November. We’re 11/12s of the way through the year. We just might make it after all. Actually, I’m looking forward to this weekend. It should be a good time, as they generally are. I mean, weekend, right!? But, before we get there, we’ve got some more days...

At once, it feels both like, “wow. Already Wednesday?” and “wow. How is it only Wednesday?” Is it that way for anyone else or just me? I feel like I’ve gotten a lot done, but have a lot more waiting ahead of me. Ah well. We’ll make it. Break on through to the other...

Time has been playing weird tricks this week, I feel. The first several days flew by. Thursday took an eternity. Now, today’s doing a little bit of both. I feel like it should be later than it is, so it feels like it’s been a long time since this morning… but I’ve also gotten ...

Not sure why, but this week’s been a time enigma. I woke up this morning going, “wow, already Wednesday!” But since I’ve been here at the office, it’s been the exact opposite. “How is it only 10am? I feel like I’ve been here forever!” What might help is...

We’re reaching the peak. After this, it’s a slide back down to the weekend. I’m hoping to have some friends over for gaming and cooking, as well as basically a “mini-Halloween” party (my apartment’s not really that big. Hard to have more than 4-5 people over đŸ˜› ). T...

And we have the week continuing along. Seems this one’s going rather slowly, if you asked me. Earlier today, I looked at the clock and went, “How is it only just after 10am? I’ve been here in the office for the past 17 hours!” Note: I’d not actually been here 17 hours at...
