…and they’ll take the damned globe. Who am I talking about, you wonder? Where will this rant lead? Politicians, perhaps? They’re notorious for such behaviour. How about book reviewers, or film critics, or the people who complain that the shade of blue on the in-game rendering of Grits McLargehuge the Valiant Warrior’s armour in the […]
Putting this here for posterity as I just found it after a LOT of searching. A high-fantasy mage I created for an RPG.
Well, not so much bloody as snowy. Was supposed to be going down to Leeds to Kayleigh and Spencer’s place, but the persistent White Stuff has returned, which coupled with a phone call to advise me that there was about six inches of the stuff in Leeds already put an end to that plan. Have […]

He has to deal with the consequences of his actions and make amends – […]
So. Thought I’d actually use this blog-space to put down writing-related thoughts. At the moment, I’m in the midst of writing a fairly epic-scale W40K ‘prequel’. By that, I mean that it’s about the life of a Space Marine BEFORE he gets as far as being genetically weirded out. I’m enjoying it thoroughly: in many […]
