It Continues

I need to preface this post (and consider it an update to the previous post) that there isn’t actual torture involved. At least not in the mind of the person conducting the torture. My son, the literal dungeon master, is well trained for this sort of thing. He plans the sessions based on our current …

Torture

It’s been a little while, hasn’t it? Things have conspired against my writing, like the world and the shit state it’s currently in.
