Location Seed: Circus.

Circus – Google Docs

Circus

The origins of the pocket dimension known as ‘Circus’ are in the process of being lost to time; there are still a few mages who remember that it was set up a thousand years ago to allow magic users to interact with each other, and the exact details are hardly a secret, but, honestly? Nobody much cares. Circus is Circus, and from the point of view of the modern generation of mages, it’s unaging, ageless, and immortal. (more…)

Incredibles 2 tomorrow.

My wife and I are going to go see it, now that it’s been reasonably established that Incredibles 2 Does Not Suck. In fact, I need to go consult her on times. It’s entirely possible that there may be difficulty getting tickets if we don’t order ahead of time.

Seriously, this movie is going gangbusters. If you want to see it on terms favorable to you, either go plan a little or wait a few weeks.  Or maybe a month.

Happy Juneteenth!

Today, of course, was the day that emancipation was enforced in Texas, which more or less formalized the death of slavery in the United States. That’s an excellent reason for a party and a beer. Happy Juneteenth!

Secret World Legends’ Anniversary event starts Wednesday.

The current Tribal Cache* is going away, so if you wanted that zebra mount you better hurry up.  There’s going to be a special cache for players during the event, and after that they’re bringing back the Agarthan Cache. …And with that news comes a major collapse in the Secret World Legends commodities market.  People who didn’t sell their Agarthan Caches earlier are going to take a bath on ’em.

Last day of school tomorrow!

Oh boy. And, of course, huzzah.  The kids are getting older, after all.  In a few years the eldest is gonna be in high school — and isn’t that terrifying, hey?  Trust me, it’s terrifying.

On the bright side: they’re old enough for more expansive chores this summer.  Oh, my, yes, they are.  And plenty of time at the pool too, to be sure.

Smoke-Clouded Transylvania [The Day After Ragnarok]

Smoke-Clouded Transylvania

[The Day After Ragnarok]

In theory, the portions of Kentucky that were on the far side of the Appalachian mountain range should have come through the Serpentfall reasonably well, at least by post-apocalyptic standards.  And, as far as anybody remembers, for the first three months or so people in Kentucky seemed to be more or less surviving about as well as anybody else. Then again, people weren’t actually surviving that well in the Poisoned Lands; so it took a while for others to really notice that cities in Kentucky were disappearing from the radio waves, and that neither raiders nor traders were coming out of either the coalfields or the bluegrass. It took even longer for enough of the local Mayoralities to recover to the point where they could afford to pay for adventuring parties willing to survey the area.

Miles Morales nod/hint in Spider-Man Homecoming.

Interesting: “Reddit user 1800DESOLATE spotted a Miles Morales nod during Spider-Man: Homecoming’s credits sequence. The specific frame for [Jon] Watts’ directorial credit features Spider-Man’s iconic mask in the background. But as it turns out, zooming out the screen’s perspective reveals Miles Morales’ black and red mask layered behind Peter Parker’s.” It could also be a photo negative, except that Morales’ uncle Aaron Davis (aka The Prowler) appeared in Spider-Man Homecoming.
