Four Tips to a Better Game, WarmaHordes Edition

by on Jul.16, 2014, under Opinion


There have been a lot of posts lately on various social media and sites in which people are very disgruntled at having lost a ton of games at the start of their WarmaHordes game time. I thought I would take the opportunity to share my thoughts on how to avoid being disgruntled and how to have a better game experience overall in warmahordes from the perspective of someone who a scant year ago had never thrown dice down in a warmachine game.

Just a heads up, I am not a tournament player and this is not a guide on how to win tournaments, this is my opinion on how to derive more enjoyment out of your games.

End of Expansion Blues

by on May.13, 2014, under Opinion, World of Warcraft











You are warned, this is me venting a bit

The end of an expansion is always this weird time for players. Especially if they’ve accomplished everything, or almost everything, they’ve set out to do in that expansion. Filling the time until the next beta or the next pre expansion patch or really anything new in general can be arduous. What do you do? Level alts? Achievements? Keep going through the motions of raiding and consumable farming? It’s a question I think we all ask ourselves whether we know it or not.

My Thoughts and Fears for Warlords

by on May.05, 2014, under General, Opinion

I’ve been sitting on this one for a while, and mulling it over since it was announced, and figured I would share my thoughts so far about the next World of Warcraft expansion. Keep in mind that this is not some huge breakdown and review of what we know so far, merely my opinions and thoughts on what is to come.

A Blog Reborn

by on May.02, 2014, under General

Hello there. I bet you forgot all about this site. Well, I didn’t. Just for many many years I have been doing other things, such as writing over at WOWInsider or World of Matticus, or participating in podcasts such as ForTheLore and InternetDragons.tv, needless to say it’s been a while. But it’s time to dust off the blog and bring it back.

The blog will be reborn and will host my new content. This includes blog posts, editorials and video game reviews. Table top games, and my vlogs and videos. It will also be home to my miniature tutorials and commentary as well as showcasing my painting. Basically it will be serving as the catch all for all of my various hobbies. I hope you’ll stick around with me while I rebuild what was once an incredibly important part of my life. The site will likely be going through a number of cosmetic changes as I get people who are better at making websites pretty to help me out. I’m poor but I can pay you in hugs or silly dances. (Hint, if you’re good with making WordPress seem interesting let me know).

I’ll also be hunting down some Art for the background and header images, so if you’re interested in contributing to the rebirth of the blog in that form, hey let me know!

So, hang around, send in ideas and be prepared for the random assortment of hobbies and thoughts that is Lodur.

Healing shield is a lie

by on Apr.16, 2012, under art, Comic

For many, many weeks I’ve been hunting for the shield off Blackhorn. I have decided, after a small psychosis that the shield is a dirty, dirty lie and that if you have the normal or heroic version of it, it’s only because you hacked the game because clearly it is unobtainable otherwise. Sadly though, the following images are not far off from the truth of what has happened.

Lodur’s Honey Jack Spice BBQ Sauce

by on Apr.12, 2012, under General

People have been asking about this since I sent the recipe to McCurly today and mentioned it on twitter. Here’s my home made recipe for my BBQ sauce. It’s a bit thicker than some of the others but it’s got a sweet heat and spice to it, and is great for making BBQ items on the grill, in a crock pot or for dipping.

  • 1 cup Jack Daniel’s Honey Whiskey
  • 1 cup tomato paste
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup vinegar (non malted, not apple just the regular stuff)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup Franks Redhot Sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste

Combine and simmer over medium heat for about 20 minutes stirring often until a BBQ sauce like consistency, then set to cool. makes about 3 cups.
