Welcome to JohnHQLD.com! Thank you so much for checking it out. I’m John, and this is my site. Mainly I will be talking about things that catch my interest, primarily in gaming but sometimes in other fields as well.

Thanks again, and I hope you enjoy the site.
I really enjoy the T.I.M.E. Stories series. I just wish that expansion stories came out faster! I have been waiting for Brotherhood of the Coast for almost a year, but the wait is now in the final stretch! Also, dumb challenge of the month – binge watch the amazing Black Sails, then watch Muppet Treasure Island.
Rampage with Dwayne Johnson comes out today. Yes, I used to play the video game back in the day, but I don’t think that will have too much bearing on the plot. But sometimes, you don’t really want a plot. Just a series of events that will keep you entertained.
The game that helped sell CD-Rom drives is coming back! Cyan has managed to get the entire Myst series together for the first time in an amazing 25th anniversary edition, and at higher tiers has a linking book complete with LCD screen! Nostalgia sells people, what can I say?
HeroQuest was my first ‘big’ game that really got me into a lot of different board games. One vs Many, RPG, Campaign games were really new in the 80’s. That led me to Warhammer Quest, a game I hold up even today as a standard I compare new games against. 20 odd years later, Warhammer Quest came out as a fun mobile game experience, and this week I can finally play Warhammer Quest 2!
Journals. I have heard them described as expensive notebooks. And in a lot of ways, this isn’t incorrect. But TYPE40 from Melbourne has a Kickstarter right now that adds a Lovecraftian twist and a imbues the journal with their creative passion. These Call of Cthulhu Journals aren’t just for RPG fans – anyone that loves writing and Lovecraft should check them out.
