    I am amused

    Written by Ghost Archer. No comments Posted in: Gamers, General Thoughts

    Share This: I picked up the boy at school this morning, his third semester of colleges, go Cody. He’s all excited about this ‘new’ game his friends in the Anime club are talking about, Starfinder aka Pathfinder with lasers. That’s cool. It was fun listening to him talking about all the great stuff in the […]

    Share This: When I was younger, before I even heard of RPGs, I was interested in Astrology. Not because I believed in it or anything but just because it was interesting how many times people would actually match the characteristics of their Zodiac sign. Enter Champions and what was to become my first personally created […]

    Cosmetics and Thoughts

    Share This: My website will be 20 years old at the end of next year. Quite an accomplishment if you ask me. It began as a free website in the old Geocities that only included a dozen pages or so. As my gaming moved from face to face stuff at the White Heron and then […]

    A Legacy Character

    Written by Ghost Archer. No comments Posted in: Characters, General Thoughts

    Share This: Eons ago, before the Enlightenment, i.e. before Champions, I dabbled with AD&D. Okay, it is like this … I dropped by the Dragon Cave up on North Military Hwy. in Norfolk in August of 1979. Objective? War games. That day I made two purchases that started me on two very different paths. The […]

    Thankful for the Internet …

    Share This: I prefer to try to fit real world stuff into my background stories. The 1962 Typhoon called Wanda really hit Hong Kong and killed hundreds. The Bei Jiang and Xi rivers exist. Yingdehong tea grows in the area near Yingde China. When it comes to foreign languages, like French Wren, I try to […]

    Thinking

    Written by Ghost Archer. No comments Posted in: General Thoughts

    Share This: As I get into Wren’s background I find myself caught up in a web of thoughts. In this case it started with writing the fourth entry into Wren’s diary, this one about a summer she spent in Egypt at her mother’s estate. This is how my mind works … does she have family […]

    Trying to Find My Muse

    Written by Ghost Archer. No comments Posted in: Characters, General Thoughts

    Share This: I never thought I’d say something like this but the sucky part of being retired is that you have all this free time and no need to daydream to escape the mundane shit going on at work.  When I was working, doing something mindless, like painting an entire 120 foot crane, I had […]

    I have always been able to get into the head of my heroes but now I find I am getting into the heads of villains.  I think it started with Ronnie ‘Leo’ King.  To me she has always been a fascinating character.  Having lived my early life with a Leo, my father, I had more […]

    MMORPGs

    Written by Ghost Archer. No comments Posted in: General Thoughts

    Share This: Just about a year ago I stopped RPing completely.  The primary reason was burn-out.  It’s happened before but in the past I had fallen back on an old favorite, Starfleet Battles.  Trouble is, all my SFB players are gone and I don’t have the patience to teach someone new.  Enter MMORPGs.  I hate […]

    Screwed Up System

    Written by Ghost Archer. No comments Posted in: General Thoughts

    Share This: Not Hero . . . this whole blog thing.  See, I am hosting other blogs from my site and in adding a new one, destroyed my own.  Screwed up, huh?  So now I gotta go back and see if I can recover the fabulous posts I’ve already added and avoid wiping this one […]
