Critical Hit! How to create a D&D Character to Suit You

One of the biggest things that can be daunting when starting up is making your Dungeons and Dragons character. It can seem a little permanent – what if you don’t like the character and you’re a bit stuck with them? What if they aren’t convincing or easy to RP? So I’ve decided to share how I went about creating my characters, to try and help you on your way to playing D&D!

Critical Hit! Picking your Ideal Class in Dungeons and Dragons

How do you pick your class in D’n’D? When I created my first character, I thought about what he would be like first and then picked the race and class backwards. I think because it was my first time playing, I put lots of my heart into my character and as advised by my more learned friends, I made a character that emphasised some of my own traits… Basically… he was a bit of a bastard.  But what do you do if you have a blank canvas?

Celebrating Our 30th Birthday: Things I Share with the Game Boy

My 30th birthday has been overshadowed (just a little) this year, with the 30th anniversary of the Game Boy! I can’t believe it’s as old as I am! Yep, this 8-bit baby was released in April of 1989! I just wanted to write a little ode to the Game Boy and all the things we have in common.

For the Love of Luna: 5 Reasons Luna Lovegood is the most Flawless Character in Harry Potter

If being a Ravenclaw means being more like Luna Lovegood, then count me in. That girl is literally the fictional manifestation of all I wished I could have been during school. There are so many moments where Luna is the most perfect character in the Harry Potter series and in true celebration of her birthday (February 13th) I thought I’d write a post about just how flawless she really is.

Geeking Out Loud: The Evolution of Sci-Fi Movies

I’ve always loved Sci-Fi but I never feel like I have seen enough! I wanted to explore as much as possible, from the first Sci-Fi Movie “Le Voyage Dans Le Lune” (1902), right through to the latest releases and sub-genres that have expanded throughout the years. Because, Sci-Fi always makes us question;

Where will science take us? What’s going to happen to us? What’s NEXT?

I’ve already considered what makes a good Sci-Fi story, and so I started doing a little research into the release dates of movies (and some extra reading). I realised that there is a pattern in what’s happening in society and science, and the types of movies that became popular at the time.

Friendly Neighbourhood Blogger: 7 Ways to Geek Out in Coventry

I’m so happy to see the amount of geek events Coventry has – it’s grown so much over the last few years! At one point there was very little to do in terms of nerdy things but I think with the opening of FarGo Village 3 years ago it’s becoming increasingly popular. Local businesses are beginning to realise – hey! There’s scope for geekery! Let’s run with it!

Being a social butterfly, I am always looking for new things to do and see. So here are just a few of my recommendations for Geeky things to do in Coventry…
