Welcome!

Welcome to the Nerdfighter Ning!

We hope you have a nice time hanging out here. There's one thing though... Running a website has a few costs associated with it. There's the physical server hosting, and you've got to make sure your domain doesn't expire. Any donations towards this would be most appreciated.

Let's play Crusader Kings 2: The Quest for Britannia!

Warning, slight usage of strong language between videos. 

In this series, Tam ventures into the grimy past of Britain and the known world with an unlikely ally, the king of Wessex, King Dar Lando. Whilst he manages the uncoof lords of the south, Tam himself shall battle the grumpy sods that inhabit Pictland, the ancient north eastern Kingdom of Scotland. Who shall die and who will prosper?

Tropes: Stuffed in the Fridge

The authors, directors, and character actors of the world would tell us this is a good thing. After all, these two goons will probably be killed off in the next scene by our hero and the audience doesn't need twelve minutes of back story to understand…

Freelance work is dangerous no doubt, but at least you are normally the one doing the hunting. Will the commander be able to avoid the space pirates that plague the Galaxy? Will he be able to resist the road to easy money by nefarious means?...

"If you have books or small things that you don't like and don't know who you could give it to, put a sticky note on it with "For who finds this" and put it in a shelf at your local supermarket or any other public place."
