Getting 100% Out Of Your Time at the Range
As COVID restrictions relax and driving ranges around the world become more accessible, there might still be time for us to salvage our golf season.
If you’re like me and live far enough North that the Winter months move your clubs to the basement, you have even less time to enjoy the golf season. So, you’d better make that we spend every minute of our practice time properly.
I don’t know about you, but I find it easy to get into a smooth rhythm of relaxation when practicing on the range. I hit ball after ball, and if one goes a little left or right, it’s no big deal. …
Your guide to winning the Armed and Dangerous Game Mode
Armed and Dangerous is back and a little different than last time. Armour is out of the loot pool. Everyone now starts the game with a Mozambique and EVO Armor; additionally, everyone has a mobile respawn beacon, which lets you revive an ally from anywhere.
Aside from that, the game-mode is the same as it was last time it came around. Sniper-rifles and Shotguns are the only weapons available, and healing items are scarce. …
But it doesn’t have to….
A lot of DnD combat is boring. For the people who want to play a grand tactics game, it’s not deep enough, and for those of us who want to roleplay, it’s a little too restricting. Combat falls in a weird middle ground that is milquetoast and rarely the highlight of the session.
Now, some DM’s are able to swing combat into epic battles that sweep players off their feet. They make combat encounters feel creative, stressful, and satisfying. I’m here to reveal their secrets.
In this article we’re going to talk about player mechanics as opposed to narration for DnD combat. The narration and handling of combat is hyper-important but it’s not our topic today. …
To make sure you have fun forever
Have you been dragged into the abyss of League of Legends during quarantine? Did one of your friends finally convince you to play? Did the constant ads on YouTube finally suck you in?
Are you a veteran of the Rift just looking for a change?
Whatever the reason is, I have your guide on what you should expect and engage with in each position, so you can find your forever home.
Look everyone and their mother should be playing DnD at this point.
We also need to admit that DnD is Nerdy. It’s ‘dense’ nerdy. It’s not like comic books that have an easy entry point like the movies. We have one entry point, it’s called the players handbook and it’s several hundred pages.
DnD is a complicated game with so many nebulous rules that it is intimidating for people to get into the hobby. That said, there are some easy ways to bring up the subject with your friends, and make it less daunting for the uninitiated.
“That’s the GM, this is your character sheet and this is the con score so roll a save.” …
Tom was a cognitive therapist, my cognitive therapist. I didn’t need medicine or an official diagnosis; I just had knots in my head that tied me down.
I had finally gone to his office because those knots bound me so tightly that I’d just come home from university on academic probation for the third year.
I’d already changed schools, changed programs, changed cities. I’d changed everything but me and the way I thought about things. So I’d been in Tom’s office weekly, for an hour or so, for the past a lot of weeks.
University and I didn’t get along because I had ‘perfectionism issues that manifested in performance anxiety.’ I would rewrite the same essay four times and decide that none of them were good enough to submit. I would rather take a zero on the assignment than hand it in and find out that the product I’d submitted was anything other than perfect. …

Remote work is fantastic, it’s flexible, it’s fun, it’s relaxing, it’s going to drive you insane if you need to do it for one more day.
For the average person, working remotely started off awesome. You didn’t need to put on proper pants to get out to work. You didn’t need to drive to the office, and if there was someone at work you didn’t like, all you need to see from them was slack messages.
Despite the benefits, it can be hard to make the transition to working from home full time. Work-life separation can become an issue, and so can productivity. …
Magic Items are one of the core engagements of Dungeons and Dragons campaigns. They are better rewards than gold, have more impact than most NPCs, and define characters as much as their class abilities do. With that in mind, shouldn’t magic items be spectacular? If they are some of the most essential elements of the game, why are we still finding +1 Swords at the end of a dungeon?
For a lot of campaigns, we’re not. +1 Swords are paseé, and we’ve moved onto something a degree better. We find boots of striding and springing, animate shields, and if we’re lucky, a flametongue. …
Season 5 is upon us, and with it, the ranked reset. If you’re anything like me back in season two, that means climbing quickly to gold and then struggling for two months. That ends today! Here are 4 things you can do to reach the next rank in Apex Legends and bring home the W more often from King’s Canyon.
This one might seem crazy to anyone who’s been trained on World’s Edge, but third partying on King’s Canyon is a dangerous game. King’s Canyon was already the small map, and now Skulltown is in the ocean. There is less space for 20 squads to share. …
