General Subject Update

It’s been over a year since my last post. Gee, that sure is surprising, isn’t it? Not like I’m well known for having big periods of inactivity or anything.

Well, here I am again, mainly to talk about stuff in general and this blog’s future.

First and foremost, I have started another blog that can be found here. There’s nothing on it yet, but it will serve the purpose of being a dumping ground for anything not related to roleplaying games or reviews. A random stream of conscience post about something? There, not here. A writing project not related to roleplaying games? There, not here. Etc., etc. I already have one dumb little thing planned for that blog already, and I will eventually begin moving posts from here to there if they don’t apply here.

Second, the Pok√©mon Verdance and Wasteland project’s status: currently on indefinite hiatus due to matters outside of my control. If a post comes, it will come like a ship in the night rather than at any expected time. It will also come at my other blog.

Third, reviews: they will still exist when I feel like it. Don’t worry about me never returning ever or anything, I promise.

And then there’s the fourth matter…fourth and last, but not least. This is the matter of actual roleplaying game writing content. Most of you reading this have probably known what I’m going to be writing here for months now, but in case you haven’t, I have started to change my system of choice from d20 Modern to GURPS. Long story short is that there was some soul-searching, system seeking, and lots of questions asked to myself, and that was the end result. I won’t be attempting to provide any time schedules or updates here, and will instead just be giving finalized links of collected PDFs.

UPDATE, December 2016: A year later, and I’m fairly sure it’s even more obvious that this blog has become more or less just an archive. I’m going to keep it up for posterity, but it’s very unlikely you’ll be seeing anything more coming through this pipe. Anything not roleplaying game-related and creative is likely to go through the above linked blog, while anything roleplaying game-related will now be on a separate GURPS-centric blog I have now created.

San Antonio Zoo Photos 3

More San Antonio Zoo photographs for your viewing, this time from the aviary to the wetlands exhibits. Apologies for the prevalence of mesh in these exhibits, but I tried my best to get decent photographs in spite of them. Read the rest of this entry »

Photo Post: Abandoned in Louisiana

Greetings all. You know those various projects I’ve ended up starting but not finishing? Yeah…

It turns out that I’m not really good at obligations, especially with my grandmother’s health continuing in a downward spiral from lung cancer to radiation-caused pneumonia-like illness and further. Who would have thought? So yeah, don’t expect me to post any particular thing any particular time, I’ll most likely do as I wish, and maybe this time I’ve learned my lesson on stating I will work on a particular thing for this blog. Still, I do have at least one thing planned out, but I shan’t set a date for it lest I fail to hit that date again.

Anyway, since it’s been so long since my last post, I figured I’d give you at least a little something. As such, here are some photos of aged structures, abandoned locations, and general roadside oddities from my state of Louisiana. Enjoy. Click on the images for a better full-view look.

Rappy Reads Like Lambs to the Slaughter: Chapter 2-Those Darn Occult Humanists

This is a fairly short and repetitive chapter, but it has enough of the eye-burningly stupid to have its own post. Welcome to chapter 2 of Like Lambs to the Slaughter, provocatively entitled “The Humanist Conspiracy”. Yes, because Read the rest of this entry »

Rappy’s Comic Reviews: Jurassic Park-Redemption Issue #2

Note: All art shown here is copyrighted by IDW Publishing, and is the creation of Frank Miller and Nate Van Dyke. The images are shown here for referential use in this satirical non-profit review only.

Lest we forget what I’m also reviewing alongside other things, we’re back with issue numero dos of Jurassic Park: Redemption. When we last left off, a bladder-addled Hispanic farmer (since he has a red shirt and blue overalls, I shall call him Mario, and proceed to make fan speculations that he has prior experience in fighting large reptiles, as well as plumbing) was being loomed over by a Carnotaurus, South America’s “meat-eating bull” dinosaur and one hell of a pug-faced oddity. Well, an oddity to us; I’m sure that, to other abelisaurids, Carnotaurus was quite the handsome gent. But I digress…

Rappy’s RPG Reviews: The Slayer’s Guide to Goblins

Hey folks, Rappy here…sorta (long story short: I’m very busy today, so I have the auto-post feature on to post this for me while I’m away from the house). Yes, this blog is still alive, in spite of my life being so hectic, with friends and Pokemon Black being one of my only sources of comfort as of late. I was actually planning on doing a review earlier than this of Weird War II: Horrors of Weird War II, but…well…

Said bestiary includes undead kamikaze pilots and evil samurai ghosts. Considering the recent tragedy in Japan, I felt that reviewing said title, even if it’s only partially involving Japanese creatures, would be in bad taste. So instead, I’m going to be giving a small review of The Slayer’s Guide to Goblins, one of multiple titles in the “Slayer’s Guide” series by Mongoose Publishing. Expect more of these smaller reviews instead of me having to give long periods of update “droughts” to finish a large one. Read the rest of this entry »

Rappy’s RPG Reviews: d20 Future, Part 1

Mecha Crusaders

The future is now.

Well, I was planning on returning to the long-neglected review of the Future Player’s Companion trilogy, when I realized…well…there’s no review for d20 Future itself, so those reviews look kind of awkward! Well, I’m here to rectify that now. Read the rest of this entry »
