This obscurely titled blog covers my eclectic interests and occasional activities in pen-and-paper role-playing games, board games, computer games, and probably other things besides. For historical wargaming activities, see the blog maintained by my alter-ego, The Wishful Wargamer.

The simple website template we chose (Danland) has enabled us to emphasise the modern, intelligent and interesting approach that the company is taking.

That said, one of my colleagues recently discovered eleven species of lichen that were formerly unknown on St Helena, eight of which were previously undiscovered by science. Now there's something to have on your website.
