Oh and I am a huge VG Music Lover.

The End of Journey is an addictive interactive fiction/survival game with random elements that sees you trying to survive for as long as possible on a raft in the middle of the ocean.

To stand a chance you’ll have to scavenge for items in the wreckage of your ship, craft items, eat, drink, keep your spirits up and survive strange encounters (ranging from pulling dead bodies out of the water, to kissing a mermaid.)  Your success in these instances is largely dependent on your physical state, but rest assured there are plenty of nasty ways to die in this game.

For such a simple premise, The End of Journey really does have lots of depth (pun intended) and replayability.  There’s always a feeling that your next play though will be the one where you manage to escape a watery grave (though probably not).  It’s a ship-shape shipwreck survival adventure.

Asked by ANON: Favorite 80s Fantasy Films

The 80s was truly the best decade for cheesy 80s fantasy films. If you haven’t seen all of these, you’re missing out. In order of pictures:

  • Legend (1985) 
  • The Last Unicorn (1982)
  • Ladyhawke (1985)
  • Labyrinth (1986)
  • The Secret of Nimh (1982) 
  • The Neverending Story (1984)
  • Red Sonja (1985)
  • Masters of the Universe (1987)
  • Return to Oz (1985)
  • Highlander (1986)
  • Conan the Barbarian (1982)
  • Krull (1983)
  • Excalibur (1981)
  • Clash of the Titans (1981)
  • Dark Crystal (1982)
  • The Princess Bride (1987)
  • Willow (1988)
  • The Beastmaster (1982)

Just for shits and giggles I bolded the ones I have seen.  I love every one of them.  Even the Dark Crystal which freaked me out (GELFLINGS!)

Hell I got songs from the Labyrinth soundtrack on my phone….

Man Willow was awesome.  Beastmaster was fucking scary at times.  Who doesn’t love Conan?! Krull was awesome (Short in Statue, Tall in Power, Narrow of Purpose and WIDE OF VISION!)

WTF Why do I remember half this shit lol

What do we call new people on TSW? Do we have a set name?








Nubbies? (factionname)-lings? Or just noobs?
I always just called them Bambies, but…

I feel like it should be something totally badass.
Or something with bees.

Usually I just call them newbees. Because it’s a pun about bees.



It seemed nicer than ‘Ak’ab bait’.


But to be honest, for a while they are ak’ab bait.

I was never ak’ab bait.  Too damn paranoid.
