Dungeons and Dragons

I’ve been playing various forms of D&D (and other RPGs) for more than a decade. From 2016 to 2018 I wrote the blog 21st Century D&D (representative post), while cross-posting game rules and materials to the associated website.

I’m looking for a game group now! In the meantime I tinker with my world, read in the D&D blogosphere, and occasionally comment there.

Computers and Games

Share and enjoy Ryan Quest, my first video game and first text adventure.

The Chinese Language

I’m trained as a linguist, and have studied Mandarin for years. Current projects include:

  • reading a Lao She short story collection 老舍《小说焦》, both on paper and through recordings from Ximalaya
  • translation (current: 《恋》 “Attachment”)
  • compiling a directory of notes on idiomatic usage into webpages, with linguistic-style (“interlinear”) examples in HTML
  • watching and occasionally transcribing episodes of my favorite Chinese show, 《锵锵三人行》/ Behind the Headlines with Wentao

Books and the Arts

I have a books page for tracking my reading and collecting excerpts. When I feel like it, I write poems, some of which get added to my poems page.

I also maintain a journal, but it’s for my eyes only. Begone, journal-seeker.
