HFE’s Gratitude Journal: River Diner Edition

4theWords is an online game where you fight baddies by writing words! I use it to motivate myself to write. You can trick out your character with tons of cosmetics and raise yourself some dragons buddies too. If you’ve got four bucks (USD) a month to spare, you should try it out with my referral code: SMWGE07249.

Every so often, the dev team lets everybody do a quest style called the Gratitude Journal. In it, you write at least 444 words for 44 days straight, and add 4 posts to that quest’s Gratitude Journal forum thread*. There’s even a chance to get some free crystals: the in-game premium currency that can be used for subscription time and other cosmetics.

*You can make any kind of forum post, but in order to be entered into the crystal pool, you have to do them all in that quest’s specific thread, and do it in a (rather generous) amount of time. I think you’ve got a month to do it from the first chance you can pick up the quest. And those posts can be as short as a sentence or a whole list of stuff like I did.

I ended up writing quite a bit for this quest’s gratitude journal, so I figured I’d share it with y’all here!

Everybody had to have at least one piece from two of three categories (nonfiction, fiction, poetry), but apparently I was the only one who had pieces from all three that year.

9 Roleplaying Games that aren’t D&D

With so many Controversies of the Coast coming to light, I figured I’d make a list of D&D alternatives.

These are listed in no particular order. I still haven’t played any of these because I have no life and some of these haven’t even printed yet, but I am excited to have a life someday, as well as all these games in my library.

Backed on Kickstarter disclosure~!

Ron Stoppable’s war against Disney is both pathetic and hilarious.

A guy on the “people should work to death to survive” and the “protect the kids” party threatening to put a prison and / or a competitor amusement park next to his one of state’s biggest employers, aka one of the biggest family vacation spots in the nation? Ha!
