My most favorite local bird has to be the Yellow-Billed Magpie.

My interest in birdwatching and identification owes a lot to when I first observed this large, colorful bird some years back on a hike up Fremont's Mission Peak. I'd never seen such a bird before and was curious as to its species.

Not long after, I purchased my first bird identification book. It was the Yellow-Billed Magpie I hurriedly referenced and discovered a very interesting fact about the species and their location on the planet.

Their year-round range is limited to the valley and foothills of northern, central California.
They can be found only in this area!

I've learned the Yellow-Billed Magpie owes its range to forces...

Birdwatching and an amazing incident

A nice little hobby I'd recommend to those interested is bird watching.

It's a low-investment interest that requires an identification book, perhaps a pair of binoculars, and an interest in the outdoors and wildlife.

As well, the opportunity to engage in the hobby is nearly always available. Birds can be found almost anywhere in the world. They're hardy and can thrive even where man's imprint is felt the hardest.

I had an amazing incident occur just yesterday, Saturday, April 12, 2008.
While in my backyard working and playing with my family, I noticed a large Western Scrub-Jay. Not an uncommon site in my backyard, but the bird's behavior was what caught my eye. The vibrantly-colored Jay was perching on our plum tree eyeing something in the grass. It flew off and my attention came back to my family and the backyard maintenance.

A bit later, while I was...

Fan Fiction in Valhalla

Posted August 30th, 2006 at 02:22 PM by Hex_Enduction_Hour
What do Heroscape fans do when they're not playing the game or running around hunting down expansions? For some of us, the creative side takes over and we create art or literature based around the characters and realm of Valhalla.

Heroscaper Roabula has started a photo-story titled, Jandar's Hope. Taking photographs of Heroscape figures and terrain as well as some of his own custom terrain, Roabula has created an engaging story of good versus evil, Utgar versus Jandar in the realm of the Kyrie. In a show of good community spirit, Robaula has allowed fellow Heroscaper Ultradoug to enhance the backgrounds of his photos.

Give yourself a moment to read the following tale. It may just influence you to create your interpretation of Valhalla and its warriors of all time.

"JANDARS HOPE" by Robaula


It was over before it had even started...

Rules of Valhalla

Posted May 21st, 2006 at 02:02 PM by Hex_Enduction_Hour
"Will the Gorillinators get their 'Tough' shield?"

"Can an orc disengage from a Knight of Weston without a swipe from their Coward's Reward ability?"

"If my Deadeye's engaged, can he still Sharpshoot somewhere else?"

Sound familiar? How many times has a situation like these arisen in one of your battles? The wording on a Heroscape unit card is explicit and to the point. If care is not taken in its interpretation, you may end up missing a key point or making a drastic mistake.

It's important to always look over an ability or special attack...
