TIMELINE FOR STORIES IN THE BALANCING ACT UNIVERSE


Wow, my first new post on this site in over  two years!

  At this point, I am sure many of you have signed up for my newsletter. If not, there is a link to subscribe, right on the front page on the site!

In the very first newsletter, I went into detail about my experience running and participating in Roleplaying games. In the twelve years that I have lived in Texas, and enjoyed playing RPGs, I have been building up a massive shared universe. All of the stories that have spun out of my games are interconnected, like my own personal MCU.

The adventures take place on five different worlds-

EARTH (All of the stories take place in the modern day, so this is happening in the fucked up world we are so familiar with)




GREYJEM (a world heavily influenced by the Dungeons and Dragons and Lamentations of the Flame Princess settings

KERANTHAS (for all of you Magic: The Gathering fans, this world is heavily influenced by Zendikar) 

SHERITAN (Look, the majority of these are influenced by planes in Magic: The Gathering. this world was inspired by Innistrad) 

MONSAI (The last of the MTG inspired worlds. This time, imagine Amonkhet) 

If you made it this far, then this shared universe might seem intriguing to you. Below, I have mapped out when each adventure takes place, and on which of the five linked worlds the adventure occurs. If you subscribe to my newsletter, I will slowly, over time, start sending you chapters of stories, based on these adventures. 

Each one of these adventures could be a novel. Hopefully, they will. 

Please feel free to ask questions about this stuff.

That would just make things even more confusing than I am sure this already is for you. So out of those twenty adventures, each one being a potential novel, which title sounds the most intriguing to you?

Thanks for your time,

7/16/2020 - MULHOLLAND DRIVE REVIEW

You can read this review, or watch my video presentation on it, right here: I should warn you, this review is more about my thoughts on David Lynch, and how I felt watching Mulholland Drive than it is about the actual plot of Mulholland Drive .    I knew that when I was going to start viewing and reviewing the movies of David Lynch I would be put into an uncomfortable position.  When I review a piece of media, I focus on the story.  If the story is a mystery, I rate the movie on how consumed I feel when trying to solve that mystery,  and if I think the answer to the mystery was satisfying. Were there clues pointing towards the answer, throughout the entire, comic, novel,TV show or movie? Then there are the questions I ask, regardless of the type of story. Questions like,were the characters well defined and unique? Would I want to spend more time with those characters if I had the chance? Would I want to spend more time in that world, if there was a

6/18/2020 - HARBINGER Vol 5 : DEATH OF A HARBINGER (REVIEW)

This is my third episode where I talk about the exciting Valiant comic book universe. Why are you sitting over their, pining for news about Avengers Movies and what the Snyder Cut of Justice League will actually look like? There is a whole universe of super powered characters out there, that reflects our own, troubled world. This world has a group of super powered beings known as Psiots, whose mental powers give them all kinds of crazy abilities. In Harbinger, we witness the struggle between Toyo Harada, the most powerful Psiot and his minions versus his former pupil, Peter Stancheck, and his Renegades. CHECK OUT MY VIDEO REVIEW OF HARBINGER VOL 5 - DEATH OF A RENEGADE : In Trade #5, one of the Renegades makes the ultimate sacrifice. Which one is it, though? I am not telling. I would rather tell you my points on why I thought this book was great. What did I rank it on my Clemmie Scale? You will just have to watch and see. In this video I featured artwork from the Harbing

5/20/2020 - Inspection (SPOILER review)

Here is the entire review in Video Form, that I created for my YouTube Show "Anchor Points" please feel free to like and Subscribe: In the early days of the Shelter in Place, I had a significant shift in the type of content I was consuming. I had run out of the comic book trades, rented from the library, to read before I would fall asleep. Also, I no longer needed to drive far to get to work, five days a week, so I stopped listening to podcasts.     I re-activated my Audible account, and my first audiobook choice was Inspection, Josh Malerman’s book from 2019 that was nominated for best novel at the recent Bram Stoker awards.  I had watched a Zoom book reading with my favorite author, Joe Hill, and Malerman, who I had never heard of previously, and found Malerman to be quite charming. Some of his points he made about writing stuck with me, and I thought I would give one of his books a chance.  I didn’t want to read Bird Box because I had spoiled
