And we’re back….just imagine, that it was a really long commercial break and you got yourself a sandwich and a beer. Anyway, I just thought I’d begin to update you on what I’ve been up to. Life is settling in to the new routine (new job for S, new school schedule for the minions, new boss at work, etc. and so forth).
On the geek front, I haven’t been doing any gaming really, but that is shortly to change as I’m lining up some time to run some Aega Mythea with some old gaming buddies(Think D&D/C&C/The Atlantean Trilogy meet the mad mechanisations of Adaen) and a game is pending with S and the minions (score!).
In the mean time, I’ve started watching Star Trek. The Original Star Trek. All the way back to the pilot. And I had forgotten just how cool it was and still is. And let me tell you, there is some seriously hot chicks on that show. Case in point, the lovely Sherry Jackson: “Andrea the Android” from the “What are Little Girls Made Of?“. Here’s a link to a really good summary and some other stuff. Ok, ok….the pictures are just gratuitous hotness, but I thought I’d make the post worth while for those who don’t care much about my gaming/watching activities. Loveliness aside, watching the old series after so many years, really makes me want to run a space game…Maybe it is time to crack open the Star Siege? Hmmm. I’ll leave you with that thought….more stuff to come.

Well Met All!
I just watched the series premier of Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire on Comedy Central. I have to say, I laughed…..and cried….and then laughed again….all about the same scene. Go figure. I see a lot of potential here.
The Geek Crowd will love it for various reasons. Its funny. Its fantasy. There’s sexy chicks in it. They poke fun at anything with a pulse…..and there’s a Flaming Sword of Fire. Gotta love it.
I will refrain from giving it a rating here….we’ll see what comes over the next few weeks. It might suck womp rat ass. I figure it takes at least a couple of episodes to see where it will go, but I’d love to hear any thoughts on this…

A little while back, I got the following message as a pending comment on the “About HAG” page:

This is David. I’m a long time tabletop RPGer who got my first taste of 1st Ed AD&D in 1986. I just wanted to let you know about my current project — a web series comedy about professional role playing gamers: GOLD.
Maybe you decide to write about it (that’s be nice). Or, maybe not. Either way, I’d love you to watch it.
“GOLD” follows the American and British Goblins & Gold RPG teams as they prepare for the World Role Playing Games Championships. Told in traditional narrative style with a mix of drama and subtle comedy, “GOLD” is both a comic look at the American portrayal of sports in television and film, and a loving tribute to the wonderful world of traditional, pen-and-paper style role playing games.
Anyway, we’ve three episodes so far, with four more on the way to round out our first season. New episodes are posted monthly. We’d love you to stop by and check it out:
David Nett, Executive Producer, GOLD
Well, I really didn’t have time to take a look right then and then well, sort of forgot about it. This morning, I remembered and decided to take a look while everyone is still asleep….and its totally hilarious! Not since “The Gamers” have I laughed so hard at silly gaming goodness. I encourage you to take a look. I plan on enjoying Episode 2 later today….and 3 when it comes out on the 20th.
