Remember the days of the Commodore 64, when the entire computer was contained in the keyboard? All you had to do was plug in a disk drive, a joystick, and a monitor. It looks like those days are starting to come back with systems such as the Liliputing Great Wall U310.
I just finished reading The Dakota Cipher by William Dietrich. It’s a book set in the 1800s, in which Ethan Gage, the main character of other Dietrich books as well, winds up getting involved in a plot to find an ancient Norse artifact. This book chronicles his adventures crossing part of early America as he searches for this artifact.
The book is a bit different than my normal fare. I picked it up on a whim, but overall I’m glad I did. William Dietrich has a very nice writing style that’s colorful, descriptive, and flows well.
Be warned though, some parts of the book deal with things that might not sit well with those that have tender sensibilities.
The book is a good read and as long as you’re a fan of adventure stories, good writing, and you’re not easily offended, I would recommend it.
I realized I didn’t have a set of red dice so I decided to order a set of red Chessex dice. I’ll take a nice picture of them when they get here.
I just ordered Hercules in New York. It’s supposed to be a version that has both the overdub of Arnold Schwarzenegger and the original version where Arnold does all his own lines, which is the version I’m interested in. I’ll have to talk about it once I’ve watched it.
I recently went to my local Dollar Tree… which is one of those stores where everything is $1, for those not familiar with such things… and came across a book called The Dakota Cipher by William Dietrich. Its cover looks interesting with an ancient golden artifact emblazoned on the front, and the story has to do with a mythological mystery.
Whenever I see a book at the Dollar Tree it makes me wonder how it got there, and I’ve never heard of this author before but I figured for $1, it’d be worth checking out. This is what I’m reading next.
I just had yet another idea for a new game, and this one has me a bit excited. I wouldn’t say it’ll be completely serious, but it could probably be played that way if you wanted to. It’ll even come with a setting, imagine that. This one is going to take precedence over the forthcoming d10 Tavern game.
Considering this website is called The d10 Tavern, and is about role-playing, I was thinking it would be good to have an official d10 Tavern game. I already have some ideas.
