Emerald Con

Leigh and I went to Emerald Con last month. I must admit that this was my first comic con and, as such, did not really know what to expect. I have been to a couple cons (an early E3 and a gaming con when I was 11), so I am in no way an experienced con-goer.

It was fun.

Lots of comics, lots of toys, not too many people (we went on Sunday), lots of stuff, for lack of a better term. I chatted with a few artists, perused many bins, and saw a couple people I knew. I did get a couple autographs (Phil Foglio and Gigi Edgley). They were both very nice and I was able to chat with them for a few minutes. Everyone I talked to, in fact, was very amiable.

Overall, it was a very pleasant afternoon. I am looking forward to the next one.

Burning Crusade

So, here I am. Or rather, there is Vronheimus, my level 58 Tauren Warrior. I have just reached the Hellfire Peninsula. Yes, I realize I am about six-months late, but I like to take my time.

In the two hours I have been in Outland, I have had a major weapon upgrade and replaced three pieces of blue armor with green stuff that has dropped off random mobs. Wow. Really, just WoW (pun intended).

My initial observations: the Outlands are tough. Adds are common. Care must be taken when pulling. There are lots of casters that can heal and do other bad things. I like to solo and with a Warrior with few escape options, I am dying a lot more. I like it. I like the danger and the challenge. Taking down that third add with just a sliver of health left is what it is all about.

My only gripe so far is that it takes two Fel Ores to make one Fel Iron Bar. Though on the plus side, my Mining is going through the roof.

More later, there are mobs that need pummeling.

Must sleep now.


Kung-Fu Movies

I like kung-fu movies. They are, as a whole, quite bad, though I consider this part of their charm. Having watched several hundred kung-fu movies over the years I have learned a few important lessons. They are:

The old beggar is actually a master (in disguise or otherwise). Odds are he is a Drunken Master. Do not pick fights with old beggars.

Restaurants are singularly dangerous places. Every time a restaurant is shown in a kung-fu movie, a fight breaks out. If you are not interested in a brawl, eat in.

If you find yourself entrusted with something valuable, be it a trunk of gold, a rare manual of kung-fu, or the Seal of the Emperor do not tell everyone you have it. Also do not carry the item in an easily accessible place, as it will fall out at an inappropriate time. This will prevent people from trying to kill you every fifteen minutes.

If you are searching for the man who killed your father, it is probably the guy who helped you out in act one and has become your mentor. Just go ahead and fight him now, it will be easier in the long run.

If you are a villain, be sure to kill everyone you defeat. If you allow them to live, even if you cripple them, they will inevitably find a master (generally one of your old enemies) and learn a completely new style of fighting via a montage. They will then come back and kick your butt in the third act.

Technical difficulties should be fixed now.

It appears that we have been having some technical difficulties as a result of trying to get a forum up. At the moment we believe that we have gotten everything but the forum up and running again as it should be. Please feel free to let us know if you are noticing any missing images or problems on the site.

Hot Fuzz

So Leigh and I, along with his lovely wife, went to see Hot Fuzz yesterday afternoon. It was a very fun movie, though a touch long in the second act. There were lots of good lines, fun performances by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, and even Point Break references. It is rather bloody in parts, so be warned. There are also cameos by two Oscar winners, so see if you can spot them (they went completely by me).

Pretty much, if you liked Shaun of the Dead, you will love this. Overall, I would give it 1.9 thumbs out of a possible 2.3.

The Wayfarer's Moon Store is now back up.

Since I just opened the store account yesterday the good people at had placed a hold on the images I was using until I verified that they were in fact our property. Everything seems to be worked out now, so shop away!


Interesting Times

Well, here we are. This is Jason Janicki, the writer. It seems rather odd to finally be live and updating. We are understandably curious to see what kind of response we will get. I am sure we will get some positive feedback (thanks Mom), some hate mail, and the occasional piece of complete insanity. The ratios, of course, will be the interesting part. Anyhow, we hope you enjoy our comic.

Thursday's update page (page 5) was posted a bit early on Wednesday afternoon. Future comic page updates will be at 12AM pacific time Tuesdays and Thursdays.
