Emerald Specter 115: My Wife is Addicted to Escape Rooms

My wife is addicted to Escape Rooms. I could literally leave this column at that single, short sentence but I felt it was time to out my wife in public and compare her addiction to some of my own. That, and I wanted to talk about escape rooms. This header is the only one that […]

Emerald Specter 114: The Orville is the Best Star Trek on TV

In this Golden Age of Geekery, we have a bounty of wonderful science fiction to intake. While the TV screen has been previously dominated by Star Trek… but now we have something that is better Star Trek than Star Trek: The Orville.

BuJoRPG Dev Blog 001: The Beginning

You’ve waited for it, and it’s here. I looked at the poll and I decided that everyone would be happy with a bit of video AND a blog, so I’m starting with the blog portion and I’ll do videos now and then. So, let’s get to the goods. Unlike the original BuJoRPG, I boiled down […]

Emerald Specter 113: I’m Not Watching the Super Bowl

This was going to be called “the State of the NFL,” but I wanted to cut to the chase and just say, in the headline, what I’m really looking at this year. I’m not watching Super Bowl LIII. I am not a Patriots fan. The sole time I rooted FOR the Patriots was the season […]

Emerald Specter 110: Reprogramming the Eating Machine

I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I’m fat. Don’t say “oh you’re not” or “you can’t be” or whatever. I’m fat. I feel fat, I look fat (to me if to no-one else), and I want to make that stop being a thing. I have done it before, and I can […]

Emerald Specter 109: Back to the Bullet Journal

What a strange and unexpected twist of fate that has befallen me in the prior 2018. After having a great push with BuJoRPG, BuJourneyRPG, bullet journaling in general, and getting things all moving in the right direction, I fall off the wagon in 2018… hard. Almost no journaling was done. I need to fix that. […]

Emerald Specter 108: Creating a BuJoRPG Dev Blog

Once again, I delve into the world of bullet journaling and BuJoRPG (and BuJourneyRPG). Before I get started into the meat of this article, it’s important to understand what has been happening and why this subject (the one in the title) came up. First and foremost, the “Christmas season” is my busiest time of year. […]

Emerald Specter 107: The ESCC and Chess Basho

I like chess. I know other people like chess, too. I’ve attempted to combine chess with a couple other aspects of sports or presentation to make them more appealing to an audience. That all actually begins with getting players involved, regular players, and making sure that there are firm ground rules for how to do […]
