    Full Post: Harvest Snaps and Crisps Are Yummy #HarvestSnapsFans This post was created in partnership with Harvest Snaps. I have been compensated for this post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Have you considered baked peas as a yummy snack? I didn’t until I tried the Harvest Snaps. I’m always looking for new healthier alternatives for my family and what is better than veggies? When I first saw the bag and I read that they are green peas, I was very hesitant to try them. I do love sugar snap peas when they are fresh, but I wasn’t sure if I was going to like…

  • Yet more ‘major’ Star Wars rumors

    John 'Spartan' Nguyen
    1 Oct 2014 | 3:38 pm
    Is anybody getting sick of these Star Wars plot rumors yet? Well, there’s going to be plenty more until we get closer to the release date. This week’s rumors include Max von Sydow’s role and the lightsaber role in Star Wars: Episode VII. Now according to Badass Digest, Kira (Daisy Ridley is rumored to play her) won’t be the one to find Luke’s lightsaber. That honor goes to a “blue alien guy”. Yes, let’s call him the blue alien guy. Anyway, he brings it to the salvage yard where Kira finds it. (I’m truly hoping Luke’s hand floating…
  • Smite Down: Sylvanus keeper of the wild…Parties?

    Aaron Carter
    1 Oct 2014 | 1:42 pm
    The good folks at HiRez cranked out another god to add to your roster, and this one I think you’ll “Root” for. Corny jokes aside, Sylvanus, the keeper of the wild, looks to be a dangerous foe on the battlefield. With multiple stun moves and a good amount of sustain with his healing ability, this forest dwelling old man will surely be considered “OP” for a while as you grab your opponents with his snatch move stolen straight from Arachne’s old playbook. Check out the in depth look at his skills below. If you don’t like what you see I’m sure…

    1 Oct 2014 | 12:56 pm
    Whenever we have a historical and biblical Hollywood film, you’ll always have criticisms before it even hits theaters. The upcoming Exodus: Gods and Kings film by director Ridley Scott is no different, since we have some of the non-believers not wanting God and the supernatural existing in the story, and then we have the critics objecting to the white-washing of the cast. Well, even if people don’t believe in it, I’d prefer to have a faithful adaptation to the written source. You wouldn’t want a “realistic” version of Superman or Guardians of the…

  • Of Procs and Percentages

    Kyle Souza

    In Marvel War of Heroes many cards have an Ability. Each Ability is paired with a Usage stat, the Usage defines the likeliness of an ability activating in battle. In gaming circles the Usage is commonly referred to as the “Proc Rate”. Based on my personal experiences, talking with other players, and performing online research here is what I have deduced: 1. There is a specific percentage of likeliness for each proc rate. 2. Ability level augments the proc rate slightly. 3. Card rarity augments the proc rate further. 4. Card position within your deck augments proc rate as well. Base…

    Buskador's LARP

  • Setting up a common armoury or newbie stash or however you call it.

    21 Sep 2014 | 11:31 pm
    At a certain point, I should say above a certain number of people - a larp group grows beyond the point where you know everybody and can pay attention to everybody. There would also be a sort of population boom - the bigger it is, the more folks will start coming.Now what I'm going to argue about is the benefits of setting up a common armory with spare kits for the new guys. Lets be reasonable most of them start with nothing. You don't want folks with jeans and T-shirts and we've grown beyond the point where everybody is everyone's friend who'd teach him how to craft his stuff. Not to mention…
  • First time organiser

    16 Jun 2014 | 2:22 pm
    Yep, I lost my game master virginity. For the first time I organized an event mostly by myself. 1 day gig, about 60 participants in total. Lord of the Rings related battle game, depicting the battle on the Fields of Celebrant. The game also had two distinctive features - first time we got proper artillery - namely a small balistae and headcam footage.Anyway, few tips I can give, based on my experience.1 - always have backups for important roles. The great khan of the easterlings disappeared without warning. That gave me quite the problems.2- Don't expect people to read up on what they…

  • I made myself an Etsy shop

    26 Feb 2014 | 11:43 pm
    Yep. Time to sell a few things away.Namely the minis since big items are expensive to deliver(from Bulgaria that is. Strangely enough, delivery rates TO Bulgaria are much lower) a few things there - will add more as time progresses. DHL and UPS cost ridicilous sums for even the smallest of packages so only via postal service.

    14 Feb 2014 | 1:29 am
    Aaaand its rather dumb actually.Yeah shoot me now  for this blasphemy. Shoot me twice for pirating it. Not that I care or it will help ;) Anyway, I don't know what the movie was like in its original form. Rumour has it that some producer guy basically edited the whole thing into its current form.The current form is classic summer teen horror with larping puns included. Yep.The ending is just lee-ron-dickilous too but so is most if it. Could be worse I guess but not by much.

  • Is It Good? Lobo #1 Review

    Tyler Sewell
    1 Oct 2014 | 11:11 pm
    See all reviews of Lobo (1)The main man is back. Lobo has already been featured in the New 52, most recently in Justice League United, but Lobo kicks off the debut of his solo series in style. Cullen Bunn, who is not exactly unfamiliar with villain solo series, (he also wrote for Sinestro) is backed by penciller Reilly Brown and inker Nelson Decastro to help usher in a new vision for Lobo’s character. How does this skinny hip Lobo compare to the comedic hulk in the past… and is it good? Lobo #1 (DC Comics) Buy From Amazon This is not your parents’ Lobo. Well, considering most…

They need to retrieve something called the Paragon’s Eyes from an assassin known as Old Gun.

    See all reviews of Hinterkind (12)We’ve reached the finale for Hinterkind‘s second story arc. While the last issue was a bit of a miss, the entire arc has really elevated the entire comic in my mind; it’s worked on progressing and developing the characters and world fairly well, while also getting some good stories going as well. How will this issue fare? Is it good?

The Squidder #4 (IDW Publishing) Buy From Amazon Another epic issue, the most epic as it’s the last. Sir Templesquid knows how to nail grizzled inner monologue, but seems to always keep a tongue firmly in cheek. Even still, when the Squidder thinks, it fits; it works. And the story blasts into high gear in this issue. The plot isn’t incredibly original by Templesquid standards, but it sure is fun to see play out. The art is the product…

  • Review: 'Rose Point' and 'Laisrathera', by M. C. A. Hogarth

    23 Sep 2014 | 7:28 pm
    These are books 2 and 3 of M.C.A. Hogarth’s Her Instruments space opera trilogy. Earthrise, book 1, was reviewed in Flayrah in June 2013. The fact that Maggie Hogarth commissioned professional s-f cover artist Julie Dillon to paint the covers of this trilogy instead of doing their covers herself, as she usually does for her books, shows that Hogarth considers them especially good (or at least especially salable). And you know how good her fiction usually is. Rose Point, by M. C. A. Hogarth, Tampa, FL, Studio MCAH, October 2013, trade paperback $16.99 (349 [+1] pages), Kindle $5.99.

  • Review: 'The Art of Hibbary', by Hillary Renee Luetkemeyer

    12 Sep 2014 | 1:08 am
    This is the fifth volume in Sofawolf Press' Artistic Visions series of art-sketch format albums. The first four each showcase one (or two) of the best artists in furry fandom; Kenket (Tess Garman), Brian and Tracy Reynolds, Ursula Vernon and Henrieke Goorhuis. Each is a professional artist, but is especially well-known in furry fandom for convention conbook covers, badge art and other commissioned art, and trades with other Furry artists; many of which are posted on DeviantART, FurAffinity and other art websites. Hibbary (Hillary Leutkemeyer) has been a member of DeviantART for over a decade,…
  • Roz Gibson's 'Griffin Ranger' meets Kickstarter goal

    10 Sep 2014 | 1:51 am
    Roz Gibson's Kickstarter campaign for the novel Griffin Ranger reached its goal of $6000, and its stretch goal of $6500, meaning the book will now have five to six interior illustrations by artist Katie Hofgard. Seventy-five backers combined for a total of $6,525, including 10 backers who donated over $100. Ever since I was little, I loved reading books with animal protagonists. There’s a decent range of books like that written for a juvenile audience, but not a whole lot for people who’ve reached drinking age. Even if I found one, most of the time it was meant to be a statement on the…

    So for today’s Daily Prompt, we have… The Great Divide When reading for fun, do you usually choose fiction or non-fiction? Do you have an idea why you prefer one over the other? When I read for fun, its got to be fiction. A good story will keep me occupied for hours. And by hours, I mean hours. Because I get so fascinated, I got to finish the book as soon as possible. I can’t really think of many non-fictions that I’ve read. I have read a few autobiographies and stuff. I think I liked Jackie Chan’s and Hulk Hogan’s but that’s all I remember. With…

    FORESHADOW Now I had heard of the term foreshadow before, but it had never really occurred to me what it was exactly and how I would use it in a piece of writing. In fact, it had never even crossed my mind. When I wrote something, foreshadowing wasn’t even something that existed. Considering I like to think I’m an awesome a bit of a writer, I should have known. Anyhow, the Weekly Challenge from the Daily Post has allowed me to give this a shot. So I’m going to try and figure this out and hopefully somebody can help me out and tell me how I’m doing. FOUR SHADOWS Four…

Omnivores: what’s the one thing you won’t eat?   This is pretty interesting. Am I a picky eater? Some would say yes. I would say it depends. I like food that tastes good.

  • Bucky Barnes: The Winer Soldier #1 Review

    1 Oct 2014 | 7:53 pm
    If I were to use one word to describe the new Bucky Barnes: The Winter Soldier book it would be BEAUTIFUL. The first thing that grabs you is Marco Rudy’s art. It is unlike any book I have ever seen and I am smitten. Honestly, it feels so hypnagogic that one would think it better belong to a Doctor Strange title than one reserved for a story involving Bucky and Daisy Johnson aka “Quake”. Yet, it works and is stunning. The story follows the pair as they travel to the outer reaches of space in order to assassinate the ruler of the planet Syro, which poses an imminent threat that might…
  • Lead POC Female Game Character in “Dark Link”: Support the Indiegogo Campaign!

    1 Oct 2014 | 7:51 pm
    I like playing video games that bring something new to the table regardless of the genre. Not only that, I enjoy it when a game features an interesting story and lets me control the outcome. A new game that caught my interest is titled “Dark Link” being developed by Bio’s Remnant Gaming. Check out our exclusive interview with Matthew A. Weeden, the Lead Game Designer, where he talks about the game and the company’s Indiegogo Campaign!   What was the driving force or inspiration behind creating a game such as “Dark Link“?

  • Harmontown: “Where pee is yellow and poop is brown”

    1 Oct 2014 | 7:48 pm
    A Harmenian is a nerd full of love, and Dan Harmon is probably the biggest one of them all. Harmon is probably most well known for Community, the underdog comedy series always on the brink of collapse. This is a perfect parallel to the man himself. The documentary Harmontown follows Dan Harmon and his crew on their podcast tour, which travels 9,500 miles in 23 days with 20 performances. It is intertwined with interviews from close friends and colleagues that add to the narration and portrait of the beleaguered creator and comedian. The podcasts are never scripted, never rehearsed. It is just…

    It’s been rumored for a while now, but the more time went without word, the more sceptical the fangirls became. Put away your worries and break out the fondue because Marvel just confirmed that the lovely Dominic Cooper will be returning as Howard Stark in Marvel’s Agent Carter. Fans have been speculation about Cooper’s return – whether or not he would be recast for the series – since Agent Carter was announced, so it’s nice to finally get official confirmation. Cooper first played Howard Stark (yes that’s Tony’s father) in Captain America: The First Avenger. He also…

    Hi Everyone, I want to start a new weekly video game post. I wanted to take over the Throwback Thursday hashtag (#TBT) and make it about video games. I plan to share with you video games that I enjoyed as a child and any games I just feel like sharing. Fester's Quest was a game my brothers and I owned for NES. It was made by Sunsoft and released in 1989. It is a top down view and action shooter but focuses on collecting items and upgrading weapons so it has a little bit of something for everyone. We enjoyed the Addam's Family as children. My father loved watching the tv show so we…

There are so many things wrong with this song’s lyric. First time I hear it over country radio, I almost veered into oncoming traffic. Pop tops poppin’, flip-flops floppin? who wrote this junk? The lyric is actually worse than summertime lovin. UGH. C’mon Scotty. Runner-up: Keith Urban’s Cop Car I love Keith Urban and his new album: Fuse, but this song shouldn’t be a single. The whole…

The Martingale betting system is extremely simple. bet on either black or red (evens or odds also works) from the lowest bet possible. If you lose, double your bet. If you win, start over with the lowest bet possible. This way you will always win the lowest bet amount even following a series of losses. Quick Example: 5 dollar minimum bet. You lose 3 times in a row before finally win 1. The amount of money spend = 5 + 10 + 20 + 40 = 75 Winning (last bet x 2) = 40 x 2 =…
