What's this Blog about?
Its about gaming, but D&D is top on my list, from D&D 5e, Pathfinder to good old AD&D 1e (where my roots come from!). I'm an Evil DM, I have been for many years, to the point folks enjoy my games and style but fear things in game. Paranoia is great and fuels a lot of awesome roleplaying situations with characters in game. Nothing is as it seems in my games, so feel free to show up in my game with your books and TRY to rules lawyer me, it will only result in another character soul taken. Remember you are the Dungeon Master and ANYTHING can be done as long as you can dream it up because you rule the game, not the other way around! IF the book doesn't list it, doesn't mean its not possible, think folks, you are the DM, do as you please, its your world! Over 1000+ character souls taken as of this date!

Do you smell what the Roc-- Hercules is cooking??

Yes you heard me right, Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson is going to be starring in the new Hercules move due out July 14th, 2014. The movie is titled, "Hercules: The Thracian Wars" and the description is as follows:

"Fourteen hundred years ago, a tormented soul walked the earth that was neither man nor god. Hercules was the powerful son of the god king Zeus, for this he received nothing but suffering his entire life. After twelve arduous labors and the loss of his family, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods finding his only solace in bloody battle. Over the years he warmed to the company of six similar souls, their only bond being their love of fighting and presence of death. These men and woman never question where they go to fight or why or whom, just how much they will be paid. Now the King of Thrace has hired these mercenaries to train his men to become the greatest army of all time. It is time for this bunch of lost souls to finally have their eyes opened to how far they have fallen when they must train an army to become as ruthless and blood thirsty as their reputation has become."

This film seems to be backed by Radical Comics, a comic book company that launched in 2008 with its first titles Hercules and Caliber as 5-issue mini-series. The company's main goal is quoted as:
".. titles focus on retellings of iconic fictional characters, mythology, science fiction, fantasy, horror, historical fiction, supernatural themes, and genre-based crime.."
Thracian Wars, was their first 5 issue mini-series they launched with a great reception for this company. What more can be said, except this movie looks like it could be awesome. The Rock Dwayne is a very entertaining actor as of late, and I have enjoyed most of the movies he has been in, so I will give this one a fair shake.

What about you, are you planning on seeing this movie?

  1. I will certainly give it a look once it hits DVD but I cannot imagine paying theater prices to watch it.
