Sunshine Blogger Award

Thanks to phyrcracker93, author of the Lee Legacy and Fading Quickly for nominating my blog for the Sunshine Blogger Award. As I explained to phyrcracker93, the Steam Summer Sale has been the worst thing to ever happen to this blog. I picked up Fallout 4 for half-price and have become completely engrossed with that stupid game. The sad thing is, I have a really good plot going for Van and his next generation. Figures, eh? What is the Sunshine Blogger Award? It is an award for bloggers from other bloggers. It is a beautiful way to share all the amazing things … Continue reading Sunshine Blogger Award

Barimen Legacy 2012 in Review

Nativity

Now it happened that at this time Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be made of the whole inhabited world. This was the first enrollment, when Quirinius was governor of Syria. So all went to be enrolled, each to his own town. And Joseph too went up from Galilee from the town of Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David that is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, to be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. While they were there, the time came for her to have … Continue reading Nativity

Happy Birthday Barimen Legacy!

On October 10, 2009 (two years ago today), I wrote my first blog entry for the Barimen Legacy and posted it to the now defunct sims3legacy.com. At that time, I had no idea it would take on a life of its own and occupy my brain with a story that begged to be told. I had previously written a number of PBeM (play by email) RPGs, most notably as “Captain Shays” in a Star Trek themed game. I also wrote as GM for my own PBeM based upon Roger Zelazny’s Chronicles of Amber. Fans of Roger Zelazny will note quite a few … Continue reading Happy Birthday Barimen Legacy!
