ringwraith

post already!

i was thinking about kirtland today. apparently only 6,000 people live there? my so-called-life was weird before i moved to new york. in high school it was decided (mostly by me) that kirtland was the center of paranormal activity in north east ohio. a bit of an aside? cleveland & its consorts are a different beast than ohio proper- take note. back to the story in progress. there were reasons, looking back, that kirtland got tapped. the lungren murders, penitentiary glen, gravity hill, the angel moroni appearing to john smith. how did it turn into the place for legend tripping, though? going to the witch's grave, or the satanic church (the shadow of its crucifix told the tale!) or the lungren barn, or out in the woods to look for the melonheads. the melonheads are the best, the best. i think i might have invented them whole cloth, but you'll never catch me fessing up to it. the hydrocephilic savages are real!

drow of the underdark.

drow of the underdark came in recently &...it isn't very good. which dissapoints yours truely, as one might imagine. spiders + elves = smiles. drow of the underdark is just completely predictable, & mostly empty of value. it was written as though the drow were elves who think spiders are cool, rather than the totemic center of their culture & metaphysics. it is filled with such snoozers as one might expect, all bland as sawdust; "the drow sacrafice sentient creatures to lolth." no shit, sherlock. how about you tell me about the actual rite itself, or heck, anything interesting? & the drow name generator? you can't make "Drizzt do'Urden"? the fuck? i mean, i'm not a drizzt kind of guy, but seriously. i think that the drow are in the running when it comes down to what parts of dnd mythology have filtered out of a strictly dnd context. the other contenders are liches & the concept of dragon colour mattering. i'd really like the drow to live up to their potential, rather than be "kewl." you know? i mean, spiders + elves, how can you get that wrong?

cloak & dagger.

these days tony stark likes to claim to be a futurist, but mostly as an excuse to be a fascist.

i'm the opposite; i like to claim to be a fascist, but mostly as an excuse to be a futurist.
