Updates – Health, Stuff, Things

Posted By on December 16, 2014

Sorry for the lack of posting from your Most Glorious Captain. My health has not been the greatest for a while now. Anyways onto more important things!

I should be on the liver transplant list since it keeps diving further into the territory of trying to kill me.

It’s the holiday season! Don’t be surprised for some sort of festive Crimbo giveaway at some point on the site.

Not much in toy or game news, may post some stuff up about the Warlords of Draenor expansion for World of Warcraft.

Still no true sponsors for the Fortune’s Ember! Any interested parties can contact me. Looking for places that fit the content, toy companies and stores, anime places, and video game related things.

Two new cosplays done, I will be getting pictures of them up once the weather improves or I find a live scene to shoot at. I am also photographing for another website that I will not name here. Hope everyone is healthy and has a good winter.

Sideshow Collectibles Batman

Posted By on October 23, 2014

2014-10-23 15.34.10The Sideshow Collectibles Batman figure is easily my new favorite Sideshow piece. With a tremendous amount of detail in the sculpting, the Batman figure is a perfect centerpiece for any Batman fan’s collection. The figure comes with a grapnel gun, numerous hands, a second head, three batarangs, and a kryptonite ring for those times when Batman needs to put Superman in his place, using his fist. Batman is my number one choice for anyone looking at buying a Sideshow Collectibles piece, be it their first or one to add to a longstanding collection. Pictures after the break.

Sideshow Collectibles Catwoman

Posted By on October 23, 2014

2014-10-23 15.17.14The Sideshow Collectibles Catwoman figure is an astounding piece of craftsmanship. Catwoman features many accessories and meticulously detailed clothing. The figure comes with two heads, a curled whip that can hang from her belt, an open whip to go in her hand, a backpack, an extra pair of boots, a pair of goggles, many hands for various poses, a diamond, and a second head featuring a different face sculpt. The quality is extraordinary and the figure has zero issues posing or swapping out parts. A definite must buy for any fan of Catwoman or the Batman universe. More pictures after the break.

Ultima Online – The Return

Posted By on October 11, 2014

UO1This is part one of a multi-part series that will document my return to Ultima Online. So far I have obtained a lovely keep as seen in the picture! My characters were all there, so I am already back to bootlegging whiskey and fishing for hours on end. Ultima has many new additions from the last time I played, and overall is still the fun game it once was. I highly encourage people to try the game out! Hit up UO sometime. For help check UO Stratics or the main guide website. For now, you can find me on the Chesapeake shard living in the Trinsic swamp.

Radiation

Posted By on October 11, 2014

To keep the lovely readers updated, on Tuesday October 14th, I begin radiation. I undergo three treatments, have a month off, then possibly two more if the cancer remains in my liver. I will still need a transplant, this is just delaying the inevitable. Later today I will be making a non-medical post so keep your eyes peeled! Also we will be giving away some more UV/VUDU codes soon, and possibly more! Looking for sponsors for giveaways still, and we also need writers for all things nerd. For now, this is your Captain signing off.
