Game With Us

EverQuest_02

Since the past two days’ posts have centered around the fantasy genre, and RPGs, I thought I’d just round out the week with another one. I’ll try to move on to a different topic for Monday’s post. But, today I’m going to reiterate something that I post about here every once in a while – “EverQuest“.

Desirée Lee and I play “EverQuest” on the Trakanon server. We both play dwarves. My character is a Level 73 Rogue named Roltnar. Hers is a Level 72 Cleric named Danora. Typically, when we get to play, we’re on-line during the evenings and weekends. It’s pretty random at times, though. Especially due to our daughter. Inevitably, as soon as start planning to do something major in-game, our daughter will wake up, needing attention. Still, we play when we can.

So, want to hop on-line, and game with two bestselling, award-winning, critically-acclaimed authors of fantasy and paranormal? We’d love for you to do that! Log into the Trakanon server, and look us up. Join up with us, and have some fun!

Happy International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Before Desirée Lee first mentioned  International Talk Like A Pirate Day to me a few years ago, I had never heard of it. Honestly, when she first brought it up, I thought she was joking. Even when I realized that she wasn’t, part of me still had trouble taking the concept seriously. Once the concept finally became fully accepted by my brain, I still found it hard to believe.

Now, though, with a few years to get used to the idea, I’ve gotten more into it. While I don’t dress up as a pirate for the day, I will toss out the occasional “Arrr!” or make the odd comment about booty – typically of a flirtatious innuendo-style toward Desirée. Ahem… I want us to get the entire “Pirates of the Caribbean” series on Blu-Ray, and marathon them for Talk Like A Pirate Day. My plan had been to do so for this year – get them, at least; there won’t be time in the schedule here on September 19th to watch that many films in one day. However, upon learning that a new installment in that film series is underway, I’ve held off on buying the series. I’m thinking a nice Blu-Ray box set containing all of the films would be good.

Anyway, I wanted to wish all of my fans and readers a happy and safe Talk Like A Pirate Day.

And, this is also a great time to get another plug in for the incredible work of Mr. Tom Smith. As I’ve mentioned in a recent blog post, Desirée and I may well be working with Tom Smith on a project in the fairly near future. Both of us love his work. One song of his is very pertinent to today. That song is, of course, “Talk Like A Pirate Day“. Click the link. Listen to the song. Enjoy. Laugh. Repeat.

Happy Talk Like A Pirate Day, everyone!
