Wet day, in waiting and dungeon crawl.

I think I mentioned before that I'm on Twitter, and for those who are that way inclined, this is my profile. I'm playing with the idea of using #3bt to mark beautiful thing tweets, and hoping some other people will join in.

1. My garden on a wet morning because I can skip the watering for today.

2. A nasturium flower in a caul the colour of orange pith is waiting for the sun to come out.

3. I like the surreal elements of Tim's dungeons -- including a statue of a monkey in a fez that turned out to be a teleporter; and an electrified bed that bounced Nick's character across the room.


  1. At first I thought Twitter was huge waste of time, but now I kind of like it - mostly following chefs, foodies and traffic updaters. And now looking forward to beautiful tweets.

  2. I must admit that I have never had any interest in twitter as I don't really know what it is or how it works. I have far too many distractions from my writing as it is, so I'm afraid twitter will just have to remain a mystery and of little interest to me!

    The 3BT for me today is 1.The stillness before a storm comes. You can feel the electricity in the air and it gets heavier and heavier that you think your head can't stand much more pressure, then the glorious rain falls bringing with it the distant rumble of thunder and flashes of brilliant lightening, the pressure receeds and it's so comforting watching the storm.

    2. Watching the meadow, at the side of the lane I walk my daughter to school, swaying in the breeze, a huge sea of yellows, reds and blues.

    3.Watching the house martins doing their sky acrobatics in between the houses.

  3. Oh, now I will have dreams of electrified beds. Ouch

  4. Thank you for kind remarks about the game (and sorry if we're giving you nightmares, Joe).

    The surreality is all part of the "old school" feel I am trying to emulate.

    It was very prevalent in the games that Gary Gygax and his peers ran, so I feel it is a crucial element for inclusion in ours.
