Feature Friday: Superior Realities!

Superior RealitiesNerd’s are some of my favorite people. Really!

I use the word nerd as a term of endearment. I absolutely enjoy the mind’s, thought’s, and self expression that a lot of nerd like humanoids that I come across on a daily basis online. Weather via Warcraft, blogging, or D&D.

In the about page, the blog is described as . . .”Superior Realities is the blog of Tyler F.M. Edwards, a freelance writer, fantasy novelist, and lover of imaginary worlds. It celebrates the beauty and wonder of fiction — be it TV or movies, books or video games — through commentary, reviews, and the occasional angry rant.” and continues to link his work and other sites you can visit.

If you have any spare time, take a look, you may just find something interesting.

Zephirah’s Adventure: Office Hours

dsc0673I very recently stumbled upon Adam’s youtube page while doing research for a D&D group that I was building a character sheet for. I wanted to learn more about the class that I had chosen to play and BOOM.

I really think that Adam has a lot of good ideas, has a very firm grasp on the rules of the game, and honestly a sassy attitude that I can get behind. In some ways, If I was not so new to Dungeons and Dragons, we are very similar in personalities. I tend to learn from people that have a bunch of experience in what my interest are. This case is no exception.

I do want to toss a word of caution out here for you guys and girls, their is a fair amount of cursing to where I try to limit the amount of them in a written form. I am not apologizing for what he is going to say language wise but If you will listen I am sure you will agree with the sediment.

So, how did you like the episode? Fantastic! (Yes, I loved it as well!)

Did any of you have similar situations to the writers / callers in the video? I would really love to know what you think.

Here are all of Adam’s social media links, if you liked what you had listened to, please give him a follow.

I wanted to post the screenshots that I had taken up to this point!

My next character that I will be working on is my mage!

Zephirah’s Adventure: Science Of Sound

According to Wikipedia, Psychoacoustics is the scientific study of sound perception and audiology. More specifically, it is the branch of science studying the psychological effects and responses associated with sound (including noise, speech and music).

I know that we as humans perceive music and sound differently depending on your mood, the time of your life, and a plethora of other variables. It makes me wonder how many sounds we are familiar with and sounds we can identify easily and know where they are coming from. Wired put out a video late last year with two sonic branding experts explaining the thinking behind some of the world’s most recognizable sounds.

I find this stuff to be fascinating. With so much wonders in the world we tend to forget the sounds that surround us have an affect on in some way. If you need more of a visual, I have linked an info-graphic that explains a the psychology of sound, it is definitively worth taking a look.

https://www.myihp.co.uk/the-psychology-of-sound/

My sudden interest in reading about the science of sound is due to the recent shift of musical choices that I have become acquainted with. I know everyone is different and has different taste in music; however, science and sound has always been in our life’s in some form or fashion. Even if we do not notice or acknowledge it.

Here is an example of some of the music I have been listening to recently:

Hopefully, I did not bore you with my nerdy fascination of science and sound. The next music post will be some newer stuff that I have put in my play list for raiding in Warcraft!

MTG Monday: At The Ready?

Magic-The-Gathering-card backThe major point of gathering cards for Magic! The Gathering is the intent to actually play. Sooner rather then later to not just have your cards sit on a shelf and collect dust.

Art can come in a plethora of ways; however, Magic! The Gathering is a fantastic way of using the art that you have collected.

I am currently looking for a group to play with and I have a few options. A few meaning a total of two. One option is to use Roll20. The second being a local store that sells cards and a plethora of other collectibles for Magic, D&D, Pokemon and various other things. I would rather play locally for various reasons.

I tend to learn things better when it is right in front of me. I dont totally suck at the game but learning how to improve and what I would need to fill out a deck would be great.

I will be looking into the local group here soon to see what I can figure out and report back.

Featured Blog: The Pink Dice Chronicles!

12pcopaquepinkwithgoldIt is refreshing to see a Dungeon Master share their thoughts via a blog. It explain’s everything from how they started their journey with Dungeons and Dragons, their thoughts on various rules, and a plethora of issues that can and have come up during their sessions.

I would strongly encourage reading a blog like this. It gives a player of Dungeons and Dragons a different perspective. Also, for as infrequent as the post are for this particular blog in question, it still provides solid content and great commentary on a verity of topic’s.

Take the time to read “The Pink Dice Chronicles” here!

Now I want a set of pink dice, thanks! 🙂

Community: Help Is Available!

Recently I have noticed an influx of people reaching out in the gaming communities that I am a member of for help with various issues going on in their life. For the most part, their stories vary; however, the sadness or even depression is real.

I even came across a blog talking about how the writer was on the brink of taking their own life. All these things, post, and various entries are scary to read because their are real people behind the keyboard. We live in a world where technology is the way we communicate and we often do not meet the person posting such things in real life. We, at times, do not even know their real names.

I wanted to take a moment and provide some resources for those who may feel like they need to utilize them.

Just know you are never alone. There is help available & someone to listen.
