  • Ultimate Antipodism – Drawn from Light and Darkness Ultimate Antipodism is a massive book of 93 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, leaving us with a whopping 90 pages, so let’s take a look!   First: What is this book? Well, one could assume this to be the unofficial fourth part of Strange Magic, seeing how this basically represents a massive, non-vancian casting system and classes based on it. Antipodism is all about light and darkness and the things in-between – instead of the linear progression that characterized shadow magic in 3.X, antipodism is more about combos and the oscillation between light and dark. The concept was pioneered in the edgewalker rogue/assassin/shadowdancer-y class, then expanded […]

  • Demiplanes: The Twilight Demesne This installment in Raging Swan Press’ new series detailing Demiplanes clocks in at 10 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page advertisement, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   So what is the Twilight Demesne? Well, the easy answer would be that it’s a truly dark forest – one wove from the Plane of Shadow and thus a fluif, self-contained place with normal gravity. Ingress and egress to the plane, planar traits (like enhanced light/darkness descriptor magic) and impeded magic – all covered.   Notable denizens and a lore-section as well as a 20-entry dressing table ensure that you have […]

  • As the latest Twilight installment is set to be released I am fighting back hurling every time I see the previews for this cinematic disaster.  Before I get too far into this, let me start by saying I could only stomach half of the first Twilight movie until my stomach was in pain.  A few months ago I wrote an article on my top 10 B movies in which I would have loved to rip on Twilight; however, Twilight doesn’t fall under that category since it was a high budget film.  Yet, if I had my way with Twilight I would definitely place it at the number 1 position for worst A-list movies ever made.  I realize there are millions […]

  •   My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 2: Episode 2 Originally aired Saturday 9/24/2011 WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!!   “Sarcasm: the last refuge of modest and chaste-souled people when the privacy of their soul is coarsely and intrusively invaded.” – Dostoevsky Seriously, a lot of sarcasm in this episode, I suppose it IS a defense mechanism. Of course I loved it, Pinkie getting one last gulp of chocolate rain, the shameless and beautiful Star Wars ending. ANYWAY! So I can’t help but think I set myself up for disappointment this week. I was part of the big over-analysis group that wanted DisQord to come back as a recurring character with diminished powers. Thinking about it, that makes less sense than […]

  • Twilight Sparkle eez best pony!     I’m sure you’re thinking by now that this guy is off his rocker, insane in the membrane! But let me be perfectly clear, Equestria is real and the ponies that live there are my very best friends!   No, I’m not that far off the deep end…yet.

The animals talk to me at least, but just […]
