The Boy and the Brewer.

Posted June 27th, 2011 at 02:34 PM by Chardar
This is a short fable that I wrote for my 4-H creative writing project. I thought I would post it here as well.

The Boy and the Brewer.

Once upon a time there was a young boy who lived in a faraway village. One day he decided that he wanted to make some money. His parents refused to simply give the boy money, and told him that it was time for him to find a job. Now in such a small village it is hard for a young boy to find employment, so he decided he would find something to sell.
First he talked to the town blacksmith. The blacksmith said that he would pay the boy for metal ores. However the boy knew nothing about mining, so he politely declined the blacksmith’s offer.
Next he tried the town baker. The baker said that he would pay the boy for wheat to make flour. The boy knew he could sow wheat in his father’s field, and he thought about the baker’s offer for a long time. However it would take far too...

Dvorak and typos.

Posted May 8th, 2011 at 11:05 PM by Chardar
After debating for a couple of weeks I have made the switch to a Dvorak keyboard, so if you see me making more typos than normal that's why. It's going to take some getting used to, but I like it so far. Does anyone else use a Dvorak, and do you have any advice for me?

-Chardar, copying Aldin and wishing that I had learned to type this way the first time.

Testing (Tae Kwon Do).

It's been a few months since I started back up in Tae Kwon Do, and it seems like it's been the only constant in my life recently.

Our belt system uses a two part ranking system for colored belts. you can either be a color recommended or color decided. Right now I am Blue Decided, which means I am ready to test for Brown Recommended. Then I have to train for three months until the next testing cycle, where I can become Brown Decided (then red, then on to black).

Anyway I'm going to be testing for Brown Recommended this Saturday. I'm pretty excited. It seems like this means I'm officially a part of the family. The people there have been great, instructors, students, everyone. It's been a good experience, and I hope that I can stick with it for a long time.

I'm also a little nervous. I have my form down to a science. I'm not at all worried about that. I'm a little less sure about my board break, but I've been able to do it pretty consistently in training....

Posted March 3rd, 2011 at 06:43 PM by Chardar
W@HS is stopped for the Lost Scenarios, but I didn't tell LordE in time so he went ahead and wrote the Map of the Week (entirely my fault). I felt bad that he put so much effort into the piece, so I agreed to post it here. Enjoy!

It feels like it was only yesterday.

Posted January 10th, 2011 at 04:22 PM by Chardar
It's been a year since I joined Heroscapers. I've done a lot in that time, but somehow I still feel like a newb. It seems only yesterday I was explaining why I made Torch, when really it was a year ago. I've been looking around at everything I've accomplished since I've been here. I'm not proud of it all, but I wouldn't change any of it. Here's a rundown of some of my favorite things that I've done during my short time here.

My custom units.

This was the first title of the first thread of the first custom that I posted here. This custom is balanced and fun, and still sees play quite frequently. I wish I can say the same for most of the other old customs, but while most of them weren't very good there were a few standouts, and this one stands out above them all. I haven't been able to bring myself to improve the image. It's just a part of the custom,...
