I’m Von. This is my website. It’s about games.
I hate introducing myself.
This website updates at least once a week. I try to have something for #MiniatureMonday, #WIPWednesday, #ThrowbackThursday* or #FollowFriday. If I don’t post here I’ve probably put something on Facebook.
* – or Theory Thursday, or Technique Thursday, or Tutorial Thursday… Thursday is a good day for alliteration.
I have a YouTube channel! At present I’m doing last-gen PC game playthroughs, updating twice a week. RPG on Tuesdays, RTS on Saturdays. Currently playing Vampire: the Masquerade – Bloodlines and Dawn of War II.
I also do a podcast once a month. In theory. Ninety-odd minutes of me and a guest or two. Sometimes they’re interviews, sometimes they’re reviews, sometimes they’re round-table discussions. Maybe I’ll do a Q and A, if you fancy sending me some Qs…
If you like what you see, why not chuck a few bob in the old tin cup on Patreon, where there are sometimes limited-run rewards to be had?
About The Author
Sententious, mercurial, British as a bilious lord; goth as fuck; vaguely autistic, confirmed manic-depressive, semi-crippled shut-in; likes undead, demons and abominations against all that is good and pure. Natural DM. Self-insertion fantasy persona is a True Neutral Necromancer, Half-Orc if possible.
When not playing undead, I work as a freelance writer, independent researcher and (sigh) content marketer. Most of my work is ghost writing for others, but the stuff I get to talk about is here.
Some of the things I like about this blog are that Von writes when he feels like it, so there’s no sense of urgency or posting for the sake of posting that you sometimes get with some other blogs. Every post has been written because the writer actually wanted to write about it. Another thing I like is the unashamedly intellectual writing style, and the complete disregard for journalistic length limits. Von doesn’t care if you have a short attention span or can’t digest big words. He just writes what he writes, conventional blog wisdom be damned. And I’m very glad for it.
