That Sweet Spot of Board Games

By Mookie | February 9, 2023 | 0 Comments

I am not a huge board game player, but I’ve come to greatly enjoy a very particular kind of board game. My friends are avid board gamers. They play board games that have rulebooks the size of novels, require bluffing and/or strategy at the level of a military commander, or require you to physically destroy … Continue reading “That Sweet Spot of Board Games”

Digital Downloads, Finally

By Mookie | February 7, 2023 | 0 Comments

You probably (and hopefully) noticed that in place of a usual Monday comic there was an announcement for digital versions of all the Dominic Deegan books available through Gumroad. I don’t normally like interrupting the update schedule like that, but with social media and its infuriating algorithm being unreliable at best and suppressing any posts … Continue reading “Digital Downloads, Finally”

Compliments from Queer Folks

By Mookie | February 2, 2023 | 0 Comments

As the title of today’s blog says, some of the most memorable compliments I’ve received over the years have been from queer folks. That’s not to say I value them over compliments from anyone else, but there are three in particular that have each found permanent places in my memory: The first was from my … Continue reading “Compliments from Queer Folks”

There’s No Dice Jail

By Mookie | January 31, 2023 | 0 Comments

I play tabletop roleplaying games remotely with my friends. I’ve spoken before about this and I love that we have the option to play from the comfort of our homes, in our pajamas. I love that the programs built for this do some of the complicated math required so number-crunching is lessened and goofing around … Continue reading “There’s No Dice Jail”

Pathfinder

By Mookie | January 26, 2023 | 0 Comments

I was introduced to Pathfinder many years ago, back when Dungeons & Dragons launched their fourth edition. It was not the tabletop roleplaying game people had come to know and love, but rather felt like a board game masquerading as a tabletop game. So for those of us who still enjoyed the rule system of … Continue reading “Pathfinder”

Chef Mookie

By Mookie | January 24, 2023 | 0 Comments

I like to cook, but I confess I’m not a great cook. I’m also not terrible. Give me a cookbook and I can follow the instructions well enough, and if a recipe doesn’t come out the way I want it the first time I can tweak it for the next time without ruining it. I’m … Continue reading “Chef Mookie”

The Beginnings of a New Project

By Mookie | January 19, 2023 | 0 Comments

I’ve begun to get the itch to start a new project. A new story, with brand new characters in a brand new setting, a total clean slate. I have character sketches, an idea of the beginnings of a new world, and a working title. But that’s about it. For now. I’m going to clarify right … Continue reading “The Beginnings of a New Project”

Read Comics From Your Public Library

By Mookie | January 17, 2023 | 0 Comments

I’ve loved the public library in my sleepy little New England town since we moved here eight years ago. It has a huge kids’ section, of which I’ve taken advantage of since my boy was old enough to start following along with books. Now that he’s old enough to read to himself we make a … Continue reading “Read Comics From Your Public Library”

Game Night with the Guys, part 2

By Mookie | January 12, 2023 | 0 Comments

I’d originally planned to write about something else for today’s blog, but I just stepped away from a brainstorming session with my friends regarding which Pathfinder Adventure Path we’re going to play next. I’ve looked forward to this for weeks and, after tonight, it was well worth the wait. I’ve loved this ever since a … Continue reading “Game Night with the Guys, part 2”

Game Night with the Guys

By Mookie | January 10, 2023 | 0 Comments

Game night with the guys, as the title says, has been my lifeline for the entirety of the pandemic and beyond. It started as an in-person meetup for tabletop RPGs, but when Covid-19 locked us all up in 2020, that said game night was put in peril. Thanks to modern tools for remote gaming, we … Continue reading “Game Night with the Guys”
