Sheepdogs and the Megalodon

One of the biggest lies sold to us by the DNC is that they are the home party of progressives. They do so while consistently mocking and belittling our movement and consistently being part of the resistance. And, make no mistake! Every path forward is, and always has been, met with heavy resistance. With the fact that the party is owned by the powerful elite, it only makes sense that this would be the case. But, why then do they succeed at pushing the idea that they are the right party for progressives on so many? How have they managed to make this con work? Sheepdogs. Do you know what sheep dogs do? They round up the sheep and send them in one direction. If you train a sheep dog to run the sheep off a cliff, they're doing their job but is it what's best for those sheep that are falling to their ends? Of course not, yet the party that continues the status quo that is responsible for millions of deaths does it anyway. Why should titans care about the ants they squash? Be

Open the Dungeon Gate #0

Welcome to Open the Dungeon Gate #0. I will detail the basics of the world that the main campaign will be set in as well as additional information that I felt was worth listing. Note that I will have a few different campaigns and some one off entries as the series continues, though most will take place in this setting. Now, first of all, know that the adventures detailed in the entries will all take place in or around Cyr, a melting pot Kingdom that is on the brink of war with itself. The adventures will be a mixed bag of completely original content alongside the usage of premade modules that I've made edits to. Most of the posts will be mostly text based, written in a mixed format as I see fit. The bigger campaigns will take place via Roll20 or a contemporary and I'll post some screens or video from those. This ties in with the short story entries on Night Dagger, for the record. Cyr is a rather large area and takes up a majority of the continent of Mern on the planet

3 WILD Kevin Steen Matches in ROH! Review

Matches: 1.ROH World Title: Richards(c) vs Steen ***3/4 2.ROH World Title, Ladder War: Steen(c) vs Generico ****1/2 3.Shinsuke vs Steen ***1/4 Thoughts: This one looked good enough to watch in full. The only match I've never seen from the set is the first encounter, for the record. It was great stuff with a solid pace that built up nicely. Pretty on par with content from the states at this level during that time period and fans of NXT should enjoy the layout. Reminds me a lot of the brand (when I used to watch it, at least). Up second, alongside multiple examples of audio issues, we had the famous Steen vs Generico Ladder War, which honestly holds up very well and remains one of my favorite ladder matches ever. The violence level is top shelf and the drama is superb. I still love the finish, though the commentary as Kevin reached out for the belt remains a thorn. I hate that both work for Vince these days, though I am happy they are getting paid well, by the way. Last

3 BRUTAL Samoa Joe Matches in ROH! Review

Matches: 1.Samoa Joe vs Kenta Kobashi ***** 2.Samoa Joe vs Kyle O'Reilly *** 3.ROH World Title: Jay Briscoe(c) vs Samoa Joe ***1/4 Thoughts: This started with one of the most well renowned matches in company history. A match that, before now, I always had rated just a hair below perfect. That has changed. Maybe it's just who I am now but, in the same way that you one day try something you enjoyed but now want an all you can eat buffet sized serving of it, I have now added a quarter star and made the match one of the very few I've ever given a perfect rating to. If you love hard hitting, chop heavy battles in front of a wild crowd and loads of drama, this is for you! Up next, from about ten years following the opener after Joe returned to the company (and before he split for WWE). Admittedly, I am not 100% sure why this was even included outside of an attempt to get some extra eyes on the upload due to both being Vince's boys now. Don't get me wrong, this w

Open the Dungeon Gate Announcement

I've decided I'm going to launch a new feature here in RWB titled, Open the Dice Gate! It will be an ongoing set of journal posts detailing the exploits of an ongoing tabletop campaign. I hope to include a revolving door of guests ranging from friends, wrestlers, and readers. The first entry will be up as soon as possible.

3 EPIC CM Punk Matches in ROH! Review

Matches: 1.Punk vs Shelley ***1/2 2.ROH World Title: Aries(c) vs Punk ****1/2 3.ROH World Title: Punk(c) vs Strong ***1/2 Thoughts: This is part of the 18th Anniversary Collection Series that Ring of Honor added to YouTube around the time everything was shutting down. I've been meaning to watch through them so, let's go ahead and take the dive while I have a free moment tonight. I have some news soon for the blog that I think should help me organize to be more active here despite my commitments outside of it growing of late, for the record. The first match is from their 3rd Anniversary gig back in 2005. If memory serves, that event was spread across a few days. I believe this one was from either night one or two. Either way, you get to see Alex Shelley and CM Punk in a match from 15 years ago here, working a pretty good contest overall. Up second, also from 2005, Punk challenged Austin Aries for the top prize of the company. Now, if you didn't know, this was the
