About Me

Good evening, afternoon, or whatever time it happens to be there, ladies and gents! I happen to be Andy, who happens to be a freelance web designer, musician, writer, and whatnot.

Roman Catholic, student of tabletop gaming, and someday soon I'll have my own designs in the field!

A Little Song

Well, folks, seeing as it's that special time of year again, I have a little ditty for you all. I call it "Gnomean Rhapsody (Everything Goes Boom)". Sing it to the tune of "Jingle Bells". I dedicate it to the memory of the insane gnome NPC (I think his name was Menckel?) whom I stepped in to play for a single session.

Tinker, gnomes! Tinker, gnomes! Tinker night and day!
Oh what fun to make a gun and blow your friends away--HEY!
Tinker, gnomes! Tinker, gnomes! You know what they say:
"Bangs and whirrs and clanks and pops to chase the night away!"


Dashing down the caves, black powder in their hands,
preparing crazy plans that no-one understands. BWA-HA-HA!
Away from every torch, or else they will get scorched,
exploded into smithereens all over their front porch...HEY!

Tinker, gnomes! Tinker, gnomes! Tinker night and day!
Oh what fun to make a gun and blow your friends away--HEY!
Tinker, gnomes! Tinker, gnomes! You know what they say:
"Bangs and whirrs and clanks and pops to chase the night away!"


What does this lever do? I think I tried it once,
awakening a clanker who wanted me for lunch.
That thing was big and buff, with cogs and wheels bright;
I dropped my gun and turned to run 'till I was out of sight, HEY!

Tinker, gnomes! Tinker, gnomes! Tinker night and day!
Oh what fun to make a gun and blow your friends away--HEY!
Tinker, gnomes! Tinker, gnomes! You know what they say:
"Bangs and whirrs and clanks and pops to chase the night away!"


And when the day is done, our clanks and goggles rest--
Haha! As if we'd ever pause our business and stress!
We tinker night and day; our work, it is our play,
and we will always treasure it no matter what you say, HEY!

Tinker, gnomes! Tinker, gnomes! Tinker night and day!
Oh what fun to make a gun and blow your friends away--HEY!
Tinker, gnomes! Tinker, gnomes! You know what they say:
"Bangs and whirrs and clanks and pops to chase the night away!"


Tinker, gnomes! Tinker, gnomes! Tinker night and day!
Oh what fun to make a gun and blow your friends away--HEY!
Tinker, gnomes! Tinker, gnomes! You know what they say:
"Bangs and whirrs and clanks and pops to chase the night away!"

Merry Christmas to all, and may Santa Claus bring you at least one critical success in the days to come!
