As I believe I have made clear before, I was a hyperlexic child. That is, my command of the English level was not merely years but almost a whole decade ahead of where it should be, and remained such until mid to late adolescence, when others began to finally catch up. Continue Reading
Author’s note: Following is the third and final part of my latest story detailing adventures shared by my most direct proxy character, Kronisk, and a character fielded by a nice lass I met on World Of Warcraft. If you wish to read the previous parts, you can find part one here and part two here.
In part one, Kronisk and Corrigwen have returned to Kali-Yuga about a month after having a wedding ceremony on Azeroth. It is brought to their attention that the new stock enemy on Kali-Yuga, the Overlanders, have taken to taking long-distance photographs of schoolchildren in the Ursine village. Continue Reading
Author’s note: Following is the second part of my latest story detailing the adventures shared by my most direct proxy character, Kronisk, and one character fielded by a very nice lass I met on World Of Warcraft. If you came to this page via an external link and wish to read the previous part, follow this link.
The executive summary of that part is that Kronisk and Corrigwen have come back to Kali-Yuga about a month or three after having a wedding ceremony on Azeroth. It has been brought to their attention that representatives of the new stock enemy on Kali-Yuga, the Overlanders, have taken to taking long-distance photographs of schoolchildren in the Ursine village.

Author’s note: Following is the first part of the latest story that I have written featuring both my direct proxy character and one of one wonderful lady’s World Of Warcraft characters. As usual, the story is divided into chapters, and will be mapped out with links so as to make it more accessible. As always, if anyone knows a means by which I can convert it to .epub format or similar, give me a yell. But please do not suggest Adobe Acrobat to me. That sluggish, bloated format crashes e-readers like a car on a rollercoaster track.
I did briefly consider changing the order in which I published the stories I wrote during my extended, enforced leave of absence, but then I decided it would just be easier to put things online in the order that they were written. Messing around with things too much can only make life more difficult than it needs to be. Continue Reading
No, I do not really smoke two joints when I play a videogame. It is a quote from a song, Smoke Two Joints, by The Toyes. If I did smoke two joints at every ten thousand points while playing some 1990s-era videogames, I could well be the first person to die of marijuana overdose. And really, what better way could there be to introduce a rambling about the subject of videogames from prior eras, namely before the whole mass-marketing bubble, that I would gladly throw everything from this era into the sewage in order to play again?

Before we begin, aka the preamble: In case the post title did not make this clear, this is the final part of a three-part story that I originally wrote in plain text format over a period spanning between one and two months. The previous chapter can be found here, and the first chapter can be found here.
So, a recap: In the first chapter, we are introduced to Mage-General Kronisk and his fiancée, a Dwarvish woman who goes by the name of Corrigwen. After she speaks to Gilmick‘s class about why nature makes creatures different, and attends a pair of concerts with Kronisk, she and Kronisk traverse the Wunderwerck to Azeroth so that Kronisk may meet Corrigwen‘s family.
When Kronisk does meet the family, there is a slight difficulty on their part in sussing him out (so to speak). And when Kronisk‘s attempt to communicate in grok-able terms to Corrigwen how he sees the importance of their relationship demands more of him than he expected, it ends with him needing a small degree of medical assistance. Last we saw, he went to sleep in a state of some confusion. We pick up the next morning… Continue Reading
Before we begin: I must be clear about this. This is the second part of a story that I began posting earlier. The first part of this story can be found here if you have not already read it. It is very important to have read that part before beginning this one.
As a quick recap, I will explain the following: Kronisk, the Mage-General of the Allied Realms, has visited his sons and their families on the world of Kali-Yuga. With him is the Dwarvish Warlock woman from Azeroth (Kharanos, to be specific) who has been accompanying him on much of his recent adventures. Yes, this is a crossover between my own canon and that of World Of Warcraft. It was necessary to do that for the benefit of the woman represented by the character I have just described, Corrigwen. So eat me if you dislike that.
Other than that, as always, any and all commentary or feedback is welcome. I hope you enjoy this installment. Continue Reading
