Diverse Bloggery

In the past I looked to focus the content of multiple blogs under the banner of boreders. Now, I have decided that it might be better to stick with the original format. In truth, I think the idea probably stemmed from the fallow state of multiple blogs. If I have many blogs with occasional postings,…

Funko Pop Who

CNET posted a Tech Culture article on new Doctor Who themed Pop character figures coming soon. The whole range of Pop cuties looks great – with figures for Rose, River Song, Captain Jack Harkness, Sarah Jane Smith, The Silence and the Ninth Doctor. The steal of the collection, for me, has to be the K-9,…

Quick Doctor Who Characters

I’m running one or more convention games of Doctor Who (from Cubicle 7) over the next few months, starting with this coming weekend. This past weekend, I finished creating a set of “pre-generated” character cards for the game. Essentially, they’re not complete characters by any measure – just enough to get through a session. While I could…

Not The End

The message of this lecture is that black holes ain’t as black as they are painted. — Professor Stephen Hawking Hawking has put forward a new theory around information surviving in a black hole. The Information Paradox results from a conflict between quantum mechanics and general relativity. One posits permanent destruction of all matter while the…

Wing It for Adventure

I ran the third and final session of the adventure Ice from the Eighth Doctor Sourcebook at the weekend. I think I could have finished this in two four-hour sessions, but we had more of a social thing going on and the focus wasn’t quite there. At a pinch, I think you could throttle this…

Bigger Hair

There’s one thing I like about the second series of each new Doctor – and that’s the business of making the character their own. Somehow, the first appearance isn’t enough. From the scant pictures we’ve had of Peter Capaldi so far, it seems like he has more of a personalised image. I especially like what…

Kit for Adventure

So, I ran the second session of the adventure Ice from the Eighth Doctor Sourcebook. The key to the game seemed to be having the right equipment at the table to facilitate the fun. I’m familiar with the rules – so, there’s no need to have my Limited Edition War Doctor-sporting rulebook on display. The…

Call to Adventure

I recently played the first session of the Ice adventure from the Eighth Doctor Sourcebook. I’m not running this as a campaign, per the intentions of the supplement, but as a standalone. I felt that the adventure would work quite nicely that way. I also used the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa as the characters at…

Eleven Doctors, Eleven Stories

Reading Eleven Doctors, Eleven Stories has been an interesting experience. Over the course of last year, these short stories got released as e-books, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Doctor Who series. Here, they’re collected in a chunky volume, wrapped in a silvery cover. Physically, it represents an imposing read. I have read…

Who’s Surround?

I have been listening to the CD that my wife kindly purchased me for Valentine’s Day. At the moment, I’m listening to the first of the four CDs included, specifically the music from the First Doctor’s tenure. While the music doesn’t necessarily have the same rich orchestration of new Doctor Who, it does have a…
