Welcome to LaughingVulcan's spot!


Looking for LaughingVulcan's ExIsle ComicCon page(s)? Try going here.


This is a pretty no-frills kind of website.  No frames, elaborate graphics, guest-book, or just about anything else.   At least yet.  Why?  Because sometimes the substance is just a little more important than the style.  I don't think I'm a collection of graphics, fonts, frames, etc.  The only way you may ever know me is by what I write, and likewise and ditto for who you are.  Especially where people can't meet me in person, I'd rather be as simple and honest as I can than live in the "Grand Illusion" (thanks to Styx.....)


There's another difference at the moment, and that's the fact that I'm in process of moving files from my prior website to this one.  BTW, "Rev-Darren" used to be my handle on the Internet Chess Club (http://www.chessclub.com/) and I actually am an ordained minister (ELCA,) hence should you spot any references to Rev-Darren, you now know why.  This page used to be "Rev-Darren's spot!"

Now it's LaughingVulcan's spot, for a couple of reasons.  On the ICC I'm now LaughingVulcan.  I'm also LaughingVulcan at ExIsle, about the greatest community of Andromeda and sci-fi enthusiasts you'll ever see. So, now this is "LaughingVulcan's Spot on the Internet," or LaughingVulcan's Spot.

This is all still *VERY* much under construction, and it'll take awhile just to fix the paltry amount of links here currently, let alone post much new content.  But thanks for stopping by!

This email link isn't really responded to anymore. I leave it here to confuse spam bots. Try going to the bottom of the page to decipher my web address. 

Web hits?  I just like it that you're reading this stuff.... :)

I Am A: Lawful Good Elf Bard Ranger

Lawful Good characters are the epitome of all that is just and good. They believe in order and governments that work for the benefit of all, and generally do not mind doing direct work to further their beliefs.

Elves are the eldest of all races, although they are generally a bit smaller than humans. They are generally well-cultured, artistic, easy-going, and because of their long lives, unconcerned with day-to-day activities that other races frequently concern themselves with. Elves are, effectively, immortal, although they can be killed. After a thousand years or so, they simply pass on to the next plane of existance.

Primary Class:
Bards are the entertainers. They sing, dance, and play instruments to make other people happy, and, frequently, make money. They also tend to dabble in magic a bit.

Secondary Class:
Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.

Oghma is the Neutral Good god of knowledge and invention. He is also known as the Binder of What is Known, and is the Patron of Bards. His followers believe that knowledge reigns supreme, and is the basis for everything else that is done. They wear white shirts and pants, with a black and gold braided vest, and a small, box-like hat. All priests of Oghma are known as Loremasters. Oghma's symbol is a scroll.
