My First Gen Con

Although I’ve grown up in Indianapolis, this weekend was my first Gen Con. There always seemed to be something going on Gen Con weekend, or I couldn’t find anyone to go with me. The stars finally aligned this year and I was finally able to make it to the convention for the

Collecting Stories: Compiling the Oral History of Women in Gaming

Through the magic of twitter, I was introduced to Lillian Cohen-Moore’s latest project to collect the stories of women in gaming (thanks to Sara from Solid Gold Eats for the tip!). Lilly was inspired by the #1ReasonWhy hashtag that was trending back in November. But while #1ReasonWhy evolved to focused on the stories

What Makes a Gamer?

I’ve been thinking a great deal lately about what it means to be a gamer. I’ve started playing more games lately, and spending a considerable amount of time doing so. I use Fitocracy because I love the “leveling up” aspect. I use EpicWin as my to-do list for the same reason. I

Rant: The Decline of Split Screen Games

I’ve been gaming a lot more recently. It’s a mixed bag of good and bad. I’m not passively watching TV, I’m actively problem solving which is good. But I’ve also not been making things, which is bad. The Mass Effect Trilogy may be the reason I’m updating less here too (and by

Dungeons and Dragons: Choosing a Paragon Path

We’ve made it to level 11! Which means it is time to level up and choose a paragon path. I finally have my own set of D&D Books, so I was able to take my time and read as I was leveling up this time, instead of rushing through it and just picking stuff. I

Dungeons and Dragons: Absolute Silliness

Usually I’d have a post describing where we were in our quest, and what I have learned about my character and how the game is played. I also don’t usually offer to help taste test my friend Claire’s cranberry-orange infused vodka (which is very good for what it’s worth). I’ve also started playing Star Wars the Old

Dungeons and Dragons: The Quest Continues

Last night was my third Dungeons and Dragons night, and another day where we got more into the story at hand. We started and ended the night with story development, which is giving the game a lot more purpose in my eyes. It seemed before hand, we were just wondering around getting
