And they say playing games isn't good for you. Bwahahahahahahaha~!

In a weird coincidental turn, BOTH of my characters are now currently at Nar Shadda despite the fact they're 11 levels apart. How's that for a weird coincidence? :)

First part is from the imperial section.

Love all the holographic neon of this place. 

Lights so bright you almost can't see the world above.

A nice imperial prison area.

We really do have some of the best uniforms. Heh heh.

Loved how expansive this area was and all the giant tubing for the world's infrastructure.

Now to the higher level Republic side.

And we found another holocron! X 1954 Y 3272 Z -1951 And for the first time we got it! Nasty bugger. You have to find a way to a higher floor then take a teleporter into an incinerator room. Then run through the flames to the other side! Cunning +3. Woot!

Some nasty armaments.

Super boss at the back. With only two of us, we made sure to steer clear. Heh heh.

Love love love these holographic trees. And in this instance with real plants! lol.

Super cybernetic enhanced fighters in a glass jar, being made ready for combat. They didn't like being woken up one bit! Hah!

Now for some Minecraft.

The guys have been very busy. Pbfubar has worked up a jungle estate. Jungles are new to the game and I must say pretty spiffy.

Keep expecting Ewoks to show. :P

Totally awesome we can climb vines now.

Perelay has a wheat harvesting system for his fields.

Water washes everything down. Unfortunately, he hit both water levers and the lag was horrid. The pics for the rest of the process didn't take. 

This is Perelay's pumpkin and watermelon patch. He's also got an automated system for harvesting this too. Piston rather than water based.

Pretty spiffy. Sadly everyone wants to show off what they've done since I was last on, which means my road building efforts suffer terribly each time. lol.

The King is Dead! Long Live the Undead King!

"What are you implying?"

The magister glided forward and scrunched down beside him.

"That in order to bathe, you must first actually get into the bath."


(2014) Urban Fantasy

It took everything from her, except revenge!

The muscles in my right arm jerked from tension as I tried to make it move and it resisted. A shrill scream inside my head insisted I didn't want to do this. That if I did, there'd be no way to take it back. "I...I'm afraid."


(2011) Young Adult – Fantasy

Which is worse…the monster without or within?


Home—family—the two things he would never have, the two things forever denied him…because of her.

Anger welled inside him, the heat of it suffusing him to the core, gurgling with seething emotions the total opposite of the coolness splashing down from the fountain nearby. Before he realized what he was doing, Jarrin stepped inside the gazebo.

“Harry Potter meets Dragon Riders of Pern”


“Do you need any help?” she asked. “Just tell me what you want me to do. If you prefer, I’m sure I can round up at least a few people to come over and give you a hand.”

Kel slowly shook his head. “It’s all right. Thanks anyway.” His voice lowered to where she almost couldn’t hear it. “This is all part of my punishment.’

She frowned, not understanding what he meant. “Punishment?”

Kel cocked his head in Clarence’s direction. In a flash, she understood. None of this was an accident. Clarence had landed there deliberately, hoping to make Kel pay for all he went through in the past month. She shook her head, not wanting to believe this, but what the dragon said next took any doubts right out of her head.

(2008) Young Adult – Fantasy
“To save the world she must DIE! Or must she?”


Panic and fear filled with utter helplessness made her dizzy. She knew what would be done with her, she knew what they planned. But there was nothing she could do to stop any of it.

Sharp gasps echoed in her ears as she felt the room’s cold air caress the Eye.

“You were right. She is the one.”

(2002) Adult/YA – Japanese Fantasy Adventure
“The Last Samurai meets Pirates of the Caribbean”


Laying the blade on the floor before him, Toshi parted his kimono until his stomach lay exposed. He tucked his sleeves beneath his legs to hold him upright if he should falter. Ignoring Asano, he took up the blade. His shoulder flared with pain and he tried not to flinch, as he grabbed the blade with both hands. He turned the wakizashi until its sharp point was aimed at his belly, the residence of his soul.

(2004) Adult/YA – Fantasy Mystery
“He tried to forget his past, but his past wouldn’t forget him”


Torren took a step back a sudden shudder racking through him. It was as if he’d never left, as if the boy he’d been would be coming back-though the one who’d loved this room and all these things was long, long dead. That boy died when he’d watched his father’s blood pour forth from his mouth, the end of a sword protruding from his abdomen. That boy died when he survived while everyone else lay dead.
