Why I Love Dungeons and Dragons (and other TTRPGs)

My relationship with Dungeons and Dragons began somewhere around the year 2000 with the first Baldur’s Gate.

Ten years later I got my hands on Pathfinder and Dungeons and Dragons.Continue reading “Why I Love Dungeons and Dragons (and other TTRPGs)”

Woodland Alliance

I have not really talked about my band Woodland Alliance because for some reason I wanted to keep these two projects separated.

ADHD Skills

As you can probably tell from the breadth and description of the interests I highlight on this website, I have ADHD. Or should I say I am ADH?

Jekka’s Harvest Mead

I have documented on this website my love for making mead. It is an extremely versatile medium that is (in my opinion) under-rated and under-appreciated. I am no expert in anything but I have been making a light, sparkling spiced session mead (about 4-5% abv.) that I have been working on that I wanted toContinue reading “Jekka’s Harvest Mead”
