Crackers

Morris was offered some crackers as a treat. He sang a nice song to the crackers, and decided to chew on the napkin. Morris does not want a cracker right now.

An Open Letter to an Anonymous “Pro-Life” Commenter – Episode 044

In this episode, I read a piece of my writing that I wrote on January 7, 2016, on a blog that no longer exists.

It was written in response to a random, anonymous, “pro-life” commenter who left and incredibly long and angry comment on a blog post I wrote about a bill that would prevent women from accessing abortion.

Jen’s Lore Corner – Valla – Episode 010

Welcome to Jen’s Lore Corner, a podcast about the lore of the Diablo video game series. This podcast started as a segment on the Shattered Soulstone podcast. I decided to re-release those segments in their own podcast.

Episode 010 marks the beginning of brand new content.

In this episode, I review the lore of Valla the Demon Hunter. Her story is scattered through a short story, different parts of Diablo III, and an entirely different Blizzard game.

Before I started recording this episode, I put together a blog post with everything I know about the story of Valla.

The Lore of Valla the Demon Hunter

If you are playing the female Demon Hunter in Diablo III as your character, there is reason to believe that she might be Valla.

So, who is Valla?  According to the Diablo Wiki,  Valla was born around 1265 (in the “Diablo universe” timeline).  She was born around the time that connects to the Diablo II game.

Sometime later, Valla’s younger sister, Halissa, was born. The sisters were close. At least one, if not both, of the girls parents were sawyers – people who sawed timber for a living.

Highlights from Season 15 (Boon of the Horadrim)

Season 15 was the Boon of the Horadrim season. It gave players extra stuff for completing Bounties. It also had the Rathma’s set as the “freebie” for Necromancers. Those who finished Chapter IV got a creepy hand pet.

In this blog post, I have a quick look at the progress I made through Season 15. Overall, I wish I could have spent more time playing than I did. But, I’m not unhappy with how things worked out.
