….”Friday’s Mystery Meat”….The Late Night Edition….

~ Attention. Here’s an update on tonight’s dinner. It was veal. I repeat, veal. The winner of tonight’s mystery meat contest is Jeffrey Corbin who guessed “some kind of beef.”~

      It’s been a crazy busy week, I still have yet to replace my printer/scanner, and I was too busy at work to mess around with scanning things in while I was there. I have also been scheduled a lot at the restaurant this week so I have not had a lot of free time. On top of all that I celebrated the 31st anniversary of my 21st birthday yesterday, well actually Danielle and I celebrated it on Wednesday night, as I had that night off. We just went out to dinner and had a great time, I had a half dozen east coast Wash-A-Shore oysters, some calamari, and a big-ass 28 oz bone-in ribeye, with wild boar ribs. It was really nice to be sitting in the restaurant as a customer for a change, the meal was great, and the lovely Danielle was even better….but then she always is…!!!

     Since I don’t have anything scanned in right now I am not posting any new stuff this time around, but I am sharing a few new things I discovered out there on the interwebs.

First up:  “The Observations of the Fox” this guy is awesome, I love his mapwork! Apparently he too was inspired by Dyson Logos. His map drawing tutorials are absolutely beautiful. I already understood most of the techniques he describes, but I am always willing to learn something new. I was so happy to find some new concepts in his tutorials that I will be trying out soon. I am surprised that it took me this long to discover his blog. If you haven’t seen it, go do it now.

Second up: I was checking out Gothridge Manor tonight, always, always great stuff on that blog. I saw a post about Mythoard so I had to go look at it myself, two minutes later I subscribed. I love the whole concept. Basically it is a subscription to a box of random gaming goodies, adventures, minis, dice, etc..that comes to your door once a month. Now, first of all this is just a Beta run, they are doing a test run of the concept this month (which is really smart) to get all the bugs worked out. For $20 you can get the first box, and you are NOT signed up for any additional months or recurring charges. There are only a limited number of the Beta subscriptions available, once they are gone they are gone. I know that something like this is not for everyone, but for me it is! I love the being able to open a box full of random stuff, gaming stuff that I might not ever have purchased before. I do know that a concept like this works well. Mantic Games does a Mystery Box of Miniatures around Christmas time every year, and I have heard the girls at work talk of certain companies that provide the same type of Box full of random “Girl Stuff” make-up, lip gloss, moisterizers, etc…on a subscription basis….and they all love it. Check it out, I think its a great idea, and I hope they succeed…!!!

Thats all I have for now, and it’s already past midnight so now my “Friday’s Mystery Meat” has bled into Saturday….oh well…Have a great weekend.

About this blog

    This blog came into being after I discovered the OSR blog scene. I was inspired by Dyson Logos and his blog, specifically his geomorph project. Check out his awesome work: "Dyson's Dodecahedron" The style and the simple elegance of his 10 x 10 squares put me on a mapping roll. I have blatently (...and respectfully) emulated his style and now have pages upon pages of geomorphs. Along with more location specific maps in that same style.

   My intent for this blog is for it to be more than just maps and geomorphs. However, for now, I'm just enjoying this burst of creativity inspired by Dyson and the entire OSR community.
