Watch “Mischief at the Goblin Carnival” on YouTube
The Goblins have stolen all the world’s Funhouse Mirrors in order to open their own Circus – a front for their strange Goblinoid magics: Funhouse hellmouths and pools that steal the stars. Will their caper be the end of #thegame23 ? Or is this all part of the #dataplex #00ag9603 and #KSTXI – a possibleContinue reading “Watch “Mischief at the Goblin Carnival” on YouTube”
Thoughts on the nature of this post-actualized, collectively (de)constructed “spectre” called reality. Please draw your attention to humanity’s ironic counterintuitive obsession with positivistic empiricism and reductionism, from which we expect to discover macro-level Truth that will provide meaning or direction.

The initiate is betwixt and between, wandering in a land of ghosts and untamed magic. While the Liminality is a lonely, often scary place, it is a necessaryContinue reading “Thoughts on the Liminality (for non heroes)”
