Friday Night Videos: Live! From Gen Con

Ok. Sort of live.

Right about now I should be knee deep in killing zombies.
Or at least running a group through Castle Ravenloft.

The thing I like best about Gen Con isn't just the games, or the hall to buy new games, it's meeting up with old friends and meeting new ones.   Basically these are my people.

Professor Elemental has been featured here before.  "All In Together" is an ode to being with your tribe.




One of my kids' favorite songs is Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song".  They pretty much demand this song every time we play D&D and drive to Gen Con.




Another song that reminds me of drive to Gen Con is Fastball's "The Way".  Seemed like I listened to this song a dozen times on my first drive to Gen Con.



Kickstart Your Weekend: Vermin

GenCon Special!

I had the pleasure of running into Trace Beaulieu aka Dr. Forester from MST3k.
He told me all about this new webs how he is working on, Vermin.
Sounds funny as hell really.

League of Extraordinary Ladies: Red Sonja

Another great character that made the conversion to a great Steampunk title is Red Sonja.   Dynamite's latest Red Sonja comic, Legenderry Red Sonja takes the She-Devil With a Sword and transports her to Victorian times.
I am not caught up, but so far it is a fun read.

League of Extraordinary Ladies: Wonder Woman Wednesday

It's Wednesday so that means Wonder Woman!
I have to admit when I first read Mysteries of the Hollow Earth I wanted to try out an Amazonian character.  Specifically a Themysciran style Amazon.

Wonder Woman here is going to be ridiculously powerful.  Maybe even to the point of breaking the system, but she is worth it. I am largely basing this on the Amazonia version of Wonder Woman.

League of Extraordinary Ladies: Hawkgirl

One of the great thing about Mysteries of the Hollow Earth are the Hawkmen of the Hollow Earth. Hawkmen have a nice long history in Sci-Fi. From the Hawkmen in Flash Gordon to the Thanigarians of DC Comics.

Shiera Saunders was a student of archeology when she discovered her true calling.  While investigating a tomb in Egypt she discovered the tomb of Egyptian Princess Chay-Ara.  Shiera learned that she was the reincarnation of Chay-Ara and she needed to find the reincarnation of her soul-mate Khufu, now taking the form of Carter Hall.  Shiera now looks for her lost love and helps others as the flying Hawkgirl.

Zatannurday: Evil-Lyn Strikes Back!

I will admit. I really don't know a lot about Evil-Lyn.

My knowledge of the Masters of the Universe is only a passing one.  They existed in the 80s with me and a bunch of other things, but I was never really "in to" the show.

But I have read a lot over the years and I have seen a few episodes.
So today I thought it might be nice to feature my favorite character, Evil-Lyn.

I am sure you are all shocked.

Of course I have talked about her before.
