Hail fellow fantasy-buffs and gamers!
As of today, I declare this blog as initiated! To be honest, there will not be a real post during this week, since this post is just informative. The idea here is to state the rules of the blog, if someone in the future wants to know how this works, besides the obvious.
- The topics will be varied. As a historian myself I may come to mention a few things, with a special care for the Medieval Ages, which is my speciality: book reviews, little thoughts or even articles I may find on the net will fill this part. The same goes for the other two topics. I read a lot of fantasy books, movies and so on (as I am writing and checking this post for spelling I am watching The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King), so this will be something else I will write of. As for gaming, I will try to put on a few reviews on old games. As a warning, I am a Nintendo kid, so most reviews and mention will be about those games. Finally, I will try to inlcude other information as the topics come up during the weeks. One tentative topic is a review and opinion on movies on the cinema, if I deem them worthy of a review (good or bad).
- The frequency is weekly. First off, because it is easier for me to come up with a new topic on a weekly basis, but also because of work. I may post during the week again, but nothing is sure. The blog should, thus, get at least an weekly update. Most probably I will update every monday night around midnight CST, so it should be readable every tuesday morning.
- On the comments. I am open to comments and criticism, what I am not open to is “OMG fag” and “you suck”. Posts like these are going to find a quick way into oblivion. I am happy about comments, since this is not going to be one of the “popular” blogs, but keep them reasonable. Believe me, I accept negative criticism too!
- As a final note, the posts are only about my two cents. I am no authority on each thing (maybe History a bit), nor do I pretend to be it. I just thought that I can give my own particular point of view on some topics around fantasy, sci-fi and other hobbies. If you don’t like my point of view, tell me why! I am open to learn new things, and I am always happy to see that a community this ample is ready to defend what they believe in. Only Wotan may know in his infinite widom what we shall learn anew from each other!
Thus I leave this first post only as a guide. May the upcoming weeks bring more informative posts and I am really hoping you may like it. As for now I bid my farewells.
May they smile upon your way!
