My Favorite Superhero Movies

New Mutants, to be released during Spring 2018, seems to be a fully fledged horror movie. Of course, I don’t know about the details, but this is what the trailer seems to promise. We’ll see what we get. It doesn’t get a prime release date, but April has been fertile ground for movies in the past few years, so it’s not dumped either.

Writing Cliques & Powers

cliquesnpowers3Yesterday’s ramblings about stealing and using or losing it didn’t spark from nothing. It was inspired (more or less) from last Friday’s gaming session.

For a few years now I have had a custom of gathering my oldest friends for sauna and roleplaying games in January. This year it almost didn’t happen since we had a chance of location. We ended up not having a sauna but we did have great time with my newest game Cliques & Powers.

Got My Plaque for Winning the Scenario Contest Today

As I wasn’t at the ceremony, it took a bit of wrangling to find someone who was going to be there, which in turn lead to me not getting this until today.


On the right, you have the fuzzy dice given to me by Lauri on behalf of the Guild for winning.

BTW, I don’t know if the scenario is available on the RopeCon site yet, but its available here both in Finnish and English. The latter has not been proof-read, but it shouldn’t have any major problems. You can also find both under the Resources on top of the page.
