Girlfriend Deletes Boyfriend's WoW Characters

I don't like WoW, so I don't really care what this guy is going through, but man is this chick out of line. Way way way out of line.

This is why women and gaming don't mix, people.

Kublacon

It's been too long a break from posting and luckily for anyone who comes to read this blog, my regular computer is being worked on... so I'm stuck on this water-cooled VAX-encapsulated calculation machine. Also known as a bubble-shaped iMAC.

I just returned from the Bay Area's favorite game convention, Kublacon… run by Japji Khalsa, a perennial feature in the gaming industry. I attended the show from Friday at 2pm until Sunday night at Midnight and had one of the best times I've ever had at any show.

I demo'd Thunderstone and Adventurers many many times.

And I played a few of my own designs with friends as well. However, the highlight for me was playing George's Children, which we haven't played in a long time, Dogs in the Vineyard (with Inquisition-era Paladins), and Tales of the Arabian Nights (by Z-Man games). George's was the best of the games, but we did get in THREE different games of TALES during the weekend.

I also got to see a few friends that I haven't seen in a while.





Someone ran a session of Thunderstone as an RPG. But I didn't get to play in it because I was starving and had to get some food.

Great show. I'm hoping to see everyone there again.
