Besides, as I've joked before, I'm trying to start a media empire, and to do that I need minions.
Therefore, it pleases me to introduce Lurking Rhythmically's newest co-blogger, Kaptain Von!
|I find the gleam of madness in his eyes to be quite soothing.|
So, a few things about Von:
- Despite the name, he is actually British
- He enjoys role-playing games, Doctor Who, and wargaming
- He has a blog called Game Over
- He may (or may not) be a shoggoth
Von's column is called A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Game Store and the idea behind is essentially "Let's take some bit of Wikipedia trivia, a bit of odd news, perhaps a snippet of lyrics from a song barely heard during the day, throw them all into a pot and come up with an idea for an adventure."
Or, less prosaically, the "Stone Soup" approach to RPG seeds.
It should prove very interesting to see how well he gets along here. Consider that both he and Salem are Whovians, I expect a full-on nerd-off between the two of them when Peter Capaldi officially takes the reigns as the 12th Doctor later this year.
Ach, I've prattled too much. Meine Damen und Herren, I present to you... Herr Kapitan Von and his Phantasmagorical Phables!
