Anyone who’s paid attention to my rantings about traps in TTRPGs should know that I think having some understanding of how a trap’s trigger(s) and effect(s) actually work is critical.  Without that information, the players’ potential to interact with the trap is undercu...

I jumped into this new approach, and it seems I jumped a bit too hard, because I hurt something in my right leg.  It doesn't feel serious, and talking over with my trainer friend didn't raise any major concerns on his part either, so I hopeful that some rest and persona...

As mentioned in my last workout recap, I saw a personal trainer to evaluate where I'm at with my fitness level and talk about how to get where I want to be.  On the plus side, I have developed a good amount of raw strength.  On the down side, despite efforts and intenti...

As ever, the best laid plans of mice and men....  I had an atypically hectic schedule this week, which prompted me to shuffle around a few workout plans in such a way that I didn't do double weekend challenges after all.  Alas, but I'll just have to try getting back on...

To follow-up on last week's intro, it's been a pleasant surprise that the activists have largely kept their cool despite the establishment's clear interest in escalating matters.  I applaud you for showing your character runs true.  Admittedly, keeping up with world eve...
