Zephirah’s Adventure: Easily Distracted By Dragons?

dragon.pngFor my readers that have been reading for a while, thank you. For those of you that are new here, welcome! I am going to make a completely obvious statement.

I am a huge nerd. I wave that flag proudly.

I even have a coffee cup that says “Nerds Rule” on it.

To answer the obvious title to this post. Am I easily distracted by dragons? Yes, I am. Obviously. This is not one of those moments or post where you should be hearing Talisen gently expressing to the fans that things are “a shit show, obviously!”

Dragon, the word itself, derives from the Latin language.  Draconem (nominative draco) meaning “huge serpent”; however,  it does not imply that there is any sort of mythological connotation’s to the word.  Also, the word comes from the ancient Greek word “draconta,” meaning “to watch,” suggesting that the beast guards valuables.

There is a long rich history of dragons and they were thought of as being the exotic animal that sometimes protective of the tower or princess. At other times vicious and dangerous creatures. Honestly, there is so much history that it is hard to sum up in a few short paragraph’s for a blog post and it is hard to figure out when or where the origin’s of the dragon started from. I would like to go into detail however, In this case the Wikipedia page for dragons does a great job of going into detail. It is a great and fantastic read. (Click here for the article!)

Another great recourse is from the American Museum of Natural History. They go into great detail and have sections that you can click through for some great information. (Link!)

I think I blabbered enough about dragons for the day. At least enough for a blog post anyhow! I will leave you with one of my favorite song’s by Imagine Dragons. Enjoy!

Just another MTG Monday!

magic-the-gathering-card-back.jpgLet me say this up front. I am in no way a Magic The Gathering expert. Nor do I even consider my collection any good. At this point in my dabbling with the game is collecting. Honestly, I love the artwork that is involved more then anything.

I have had long conversations with my younger brother and how I can become more involved with the table top gaming – and other games as a whole.

Essentially he has challenged me to become a better player, To ask efficient questions, and overall to have fun with everything that comes with MTG & a plethora of other games that I may be interested in.

I have spent a few hours actually playing Magic total. I am going to also take my little brother up on being a better player and lets face it – not everyone knows where to start. So, to the internet I went!

Wizards of the coast has a splash page that is very basic, and has a few videos on the page, the one video that I wish I watched when I was first starting is their “how to build your deck” video.

 

The Wizard Of The Coast crew also has a youtube page with a lot of information – so definitively use the channel as a tool.

The other tool that I would suggest using, and this is obvious to players that have invested a lot of time and money, is MTGGoldfish. You can enter all of the cards you have currently and add new ones you gather later. Just know that pricing for each individual card will very from one site to the next. MTGGoldfish also has a youtube channel!

I am going to try to cover news and stuff for MTG the best I can. I also would like to dig into some more basic things, like rules and such for those of us that are new to the game and hopefully I will be putting my cards in the MTGGoldfish data base for everyone to see. I now have a few hundred cards and it will be a huge undertaking.

Hopefully I do the game some justice and help a fellow newcomer to learn along with me!
