Rust of the Soul - Introduction
(art by princessofDisney27)
I've written highlight journals, commissioned artists to draw the characters and discussed it with friends and other D&D players, but this is my first foray into running a Dungeons and Dragons game. I’ve played in other games, but back in early 2018, I found myself in a dry spell of not able to participate in many other games that was being played, whether it was in the real world or on Discord. In the case of the former, games that were running did not fit my schedule for availability and for the latter, any games that were being run were full up with players and I felt unnecessary (this has changed lately, but during that time, it was easy to feel alienated when everyone else was having fun and you were just sitting on the sidelines hoping to join in on the fun).
It was during that time while I was still involved with “Hoard of the Dragon Queen” that I started to begin writing down ideas for my own home brew game. By March, the i

The Tale of Sir Princeton
“Barkeep! Another round!” A loud boisterous voice called out over the other voices that filled the tavern. The barkeep nodded and smiled as he pulled out another empty tankard to the keg he had opened just an hour ago. The tavern filled with conversation from all forms of life from the working man. There was talk of war but these were of no concerns for the farmers, miners, woodcutters or builders who lived in this village. 
Then, the door opened, the usual expectance of a sweaty field worker instead gave rise to a new sort of company this tavern had rarely seen. One that even made several of the bar attendants sit up to take notice.
There stood a man in steel-plated armor, while not clean and shiny like the men in folklore, it was hard to ignore a man of this stature standing there. The boots were scuffed and dirty from the road, as were the pants worn by this stranger, surrounded by a faded dark red robe worn under his chest plate armor with a cloak draped down his s

The Top 10 Best Films of 2017

Well, here we are folks.
The end of 2017.
Cripes what a dumpster fire this year has been, scratch that, 2016 was the dumpster fire, 2017 was the alleyway catching on fire. From world politics that left us all teetering on the edge, massive gun violence that was swept under the rug because it “wasn’t a good time” and celebrities being revealed as terrible sexual predators, this was a year that felt like it would never end. 
Luckily, for all of us, we had means of escape from the bad part of the real world and to that, we can thank the movies for giving us that.
2017 was an interesting year for cinema. A year that showed us a solo superhero movie about a woman could make huge bang at the box office, the independent movement continued to make it’s voice heard and showed that the modern perception of masculinity was not only dated but was unstable.
While I didn’t see all the movies I wanted to see this year (“Cal

Lost the Remote: A TV review
Program: Justice League
Episode: "Secret Origins"
Season: One
Age: TV-PG
Format: Animated
Interest in Show: High
Creators: Bruce Timm, Paul Dini
Original Run: 2001-2004
Huh…how do I label this one? A TV review or a nostalgic review?
Eh, doesn’t matter, cause if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that superhero movies are really big right now and Warner Bros has decided to get in on the act and have a feature film about a superhero team-up, cause it’s not like we already have “The Avengers.”
But before we see whether or not Warner Bros can actually pull off their gamble and follow after Marvel’s success.
But regardless of whether this movie actually turns out to be legit or not, there is one thing a lot of people my age can agree on, it can’t lift a torch to the Cartoon Network television program “Justice League.”

18 years ago. . .
Amaya Turin's blue-gray eyes darted back and forth as she stared curiously at the bright lights displaying the store names of the open mall, her mouth shaping into an 'o' as she watched several lights blink. Her mother had brought the reluctant eight year-old to the open plaza to buy her clothes for the school year. Amaya hated it and would've preferred to sit at the nearby fountain with a book but her mother always said, "Las niñas deben vestirse con la sofisticación." (Proper little girls must dress with sophistication)
Her parents had moved from Spain into Morocco while she was still in the womb so she'd never experienced any of her mother's homeland but was taught the language nonetheless. Her father was from Morocco so the family had lived in Tangier for eight years until both her parents had

This Life Will be Better -23-
After a few days,I fell into a routine. I would be the perfect MNU agent while at work,and not breath a word of my hate for them,or Phil. I wouldn't complain at all when I was called to translate,though I always seemed to creep out the guards who were stationed in the room. Soon,though,it was blissfully my day off,and the second meeting of Liberation Front. I had offered to give Carter,Adam,and Tamara a ride, and they had accepted happily. When we got there,Tyler was already there with his group of people,so we decided to wait only a few more minutes for Drake and Eve. While we waited, we chatted,and Tyler asked how my job was doing. I hesitated,then replied. "As long as I pretend I'm not the real me,it goes OK,no problems...It's annoying,though. I want to kill most of the people there for what they do,yet I'm working with them."
Adam gently hugged me from the side,since he always sat next to me,with Carter on my other side.

Michael Shawnder- Beginnings
*A beginning is the time for taking the most delicate care that the balances are correct.  One must take the first steps with care and grace, else one cannot gain proper knowledge, only lose potential.  A beginning is the time to train the mind for learning, to practice the body for doing, and to exercise the spirit for the coming trials.*
     "So what's your name?"
     I moved uncomfortably in my seat.  Could I trust this human with my name?
     "Michael... Michael Shawnder."
     "Michael Shawnder," he echoed, "I like that name.  It has a sort of... kick to it, don't you think?" He shifted the mug in his hands, sipping the steaming liquid within.
     My nerves felt slightly uneasy from that statement.  I wasn't really used to such uplifting compliments before.

Greetings everyone!
First of all, thank you all so much for your birthday wishes, hard to think I turned 26 on February the 26th, 'miright? Something like that only happens once in your lifetime.

I know ya'll have been wondering about the usual stuff I post on here, but admittedly, I've been both distracted with life as well as the goings on with discussions on Discord servers I joined, hence why there hasn't been much updating or posting from me on here as of late, terribly sorry about that.

To make up for that, here's a quick news push.

Michael Cohen, the answer to "what would happen if Ray Liotta walked out of a rehab center and joined a law firm?"


For those who aren't aware, Michael Cohen is President Donald Trump's former personal attorney. Last year he was arrested after it was revealed he lied under oath to Congress and Trump, despite his insistence Cohen did nothing wrong, quickly turned his back on Cohen after Cohen entered a plea deal to cooperate with the FBI in order to attain a reduced sentence. Then, Cohen agreed to testify before Congress before he would go to prison for the next three years for witness tampering and financial fraud.
Prior to taking his seat, a transcript of his opening statement was released where he made some truly explosive accusations regarding the president, said president, by the way, is all the way in Vietnam with North Korean leader Kim Jung-Un as part of a summit to try and broker peace (but what about Trump's bone spurs?!) as Cohen took his seat before the House Oversight Committee and told them all he knew about Trump's business dealings that involved ordering him to threaten schools from releasing Trump's grades and SAT scores, to Trump's knowledge of the infamous DNC e-mail hack from Wikileaks, to Trump using funds from his own charity to pay for paintings of himself, Trump using strong racist remarks such as declaring African Americans wouldn't vote for him before "they were too stupid to," confirmed Trump paid him to make hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels to cover up an affair the two had, admitted to having to threaten people to protect Trump over 500 times in the past decade, etc. etc. etc.

www.vox.com/policy-and-politic…

So yeah, it looked really bad for Donnie Trump, made more damning that the Democratic members of the Oversight Committee showed they were more prepared for this than the Republican members did, said members of the Committee, who spent more time trying to discredit Cohen as a liar than bothering to ask any questions, instead they held up some printed sign of Cohen declaring him a "liar."


You know this is the House Oversight Committee, right? This isn't a Trump Rally. You mean to say your one defense to knock his statements down was just to call him a liar? Really?
Like, the dude was arrested already for lying to Congress the first time, what would he gain for lying to them AGAIN? A stamp on a card to win a free ice cream sundae in prison?

Now to be frank, Cohen did not outright say if Trump had colluded with Russia, which is the entire point of the Robert Muller investigation, but his testimony paints the broadest strokes of the Orange-in-Chief for who he truly is.
"I know what Mr Trump is. He is a racist. He is a conman. He is a cheat.”

And even now, while Trump tries to talk Kim Jung-Un out of denuclearizing his missiles (a request North Korea made no such efforts to fulfill last time they had a summit meeting), the House of Representatives voted to revoke Trump's national emergency powers to bypass Congress and build a wall along the border in order to fulfill a campaign promise he made throughout 2015 and 2016 while running for President. 
And mind you, he himself admitted that "he didn't need to do this national emergency but he wanted to do this faster."



If there is anything we want done faster it's getting you out of office.



Phew...anyways...
Saw Alita: Battle Angel.

Was surprisingly good. I had never read the manga or saw the anime prior but even going in blind, I understood the world it took place in, thought the characters were interesting and thought the visuals were outstanding to behold and it made great use of 3D.

Speaking of movies, "Green Book" winning Best Picture....

I think that sums that all up for me.
F*ck, that made me angry to hear Green Book get called out for Best Picture...

Oh wells, here's to the new year of being 26 ahead folks!

Me? Well, to be frank; I'm just an 25 year old film-making student who is hoping to learn the arts of the trade so I can create and receive an Academy Award for making a film that will make you all think.

I have Autism but I am a very high-functioning person who uses his disability as a gift even when there are days it feels like a curse.

I enjoy playing video games, watching movies with a good well-written story with great actors and good music, reading good books when I feel like it and otherwise trying to motivate myself to actually do some damn work around here.

Apart from that, I don't try to reveal too much about myself, I'm choosing to try and keep myself below the radar. Have fun with all my deviant crap! ^^
