There are so many rare and beautiful things in the world. Flora, expressions, experiences, objects, ideas, scenes, moments, microcosms of time...

These may be the ramblings of an over-tired mind, but I have a beautiful life. i truly do! Regardless of the illusory pit I have dug myself with money that was never really physical to begin with, over the purchase of an immaterial thing such as education.... I am in a rare state.

I have love, I have happiness, I have my health, my home, my family and friends. I could go on, but I am honestly not in the mood to talk all rainbows and butterflies and crap. Which is funny, because I actually am in a pretty good mood. Maybe it is because I am delerious with sleep deprivation - for such a good reason.

I love telling stories. I love it. I love roping players into my mind and letting them loose on the terrifying wonders that lay there hidden. I love watching their expressions when they meet new and bold imaginary faces, and when they fight horrible foes and triumph. I love throwing a wrench into their plans, spicing it up with dversity, stirring in a touch of humanity in the stew of sword and sorcery.

Yes, I said sword and sorcery. But let me make one thing perfectly clear, all right? YES I am a total nerd. I role play with my friends while drinking mountain dew and eating chips and candy bars. I made up my own world, continents, capitols, rivers, cities, peoples, cultures, myths, religions, politics..... I even draw my own damn maps.

But I am NOT a number crunching, power-grinding idiot that tallies up experience and dishes them out to make the uber master character of doom. I like to think of myself as far more creative than that.

I do it for the story. That's it.

Annnnnd, I think my rant is over now. remind me later to tell you about a man named Alaric Kaine.

  1. I love this post. But a few things. Money was only physical for a short time in his career before becoming a bad idea. Also, I am a total nerd too. I draw my own damn maps as well.
