This latest crazy plan of mine is proving somewhat difficult to do...and for the oddest reasons! I've been searching all over the Hutt Central for a plain white dressing gown or bathrobe, and there's absolutely none on sale anywhere! Did some fashion designer decide that white was out this year or something?

Some backstory is in order...a while back, me and my friends were discussing potentially dressing up as something for Armageddon (the comic book/tv show/nerd expo) or the Sevens (a sporting event in Wellington which is mainly memorable for EVERYONE dressing up in silly costumes...none of us are actually into sport that much, but we figured we could use it as an excuse to dress up and go to a bar instead). I'd recently been playing through the Assassin's Creed series, and one day I noticed while doing something vaguely athletic that the dressing gown I was wearing (I wear two on top of each other whenever I'm not planning on leaving the house...it's a habit left over from a nasty sickness several years back) made the same sort of movements as Ezio's clothing, and was of a similar design...flowing white robes, with a hood! 

So I figured that I could potentially track down a white dressing gown, make some adjustments to the lower part of the robes so that they'd match the Assassin's robes, then add some red fabric and some plastic armour from a costume store (or $2 shop), and go as Ezio! To make it even better, my friend Nick actually bought four Assassin's blade replicas, so we could add those to the costume, and spend time at Armageddon paying homage to the series...we could follow each other through the crowds, then pretend to kill one another, and do a three minute long speech before dying...fun! Annoyingly, though, no shop seems to sell white dressing gowns! Guess I'll have to search Wellington's stores...

On another note, I've returned to CKII after a brief sabbatical from it, and I've at last begun a game as one of the Indian Kingdoms...and I'm doing pretty well! It's nearly 1000, and I rule the Pala Empire; a Buddhist state that controls all East India (started with most of it; gobbled up my neighbours fairly easily) and most of the South (I somehow got a claim to the North half of the large starting state, and then my character's wife got the claim to the South), and which will also control a good chunk of the West after subjugating Rajputana...even better, a Muslim state has set itself up in the Punjab, so I can use the Holy War CB to eat up their land easily!

Who am I? I'm a random person who likes solving problems that pop up in various book/film/tv/game/etc series that I pay attention to. Hence, a lot of my work revolves around creating essays, maps, informative pictures, and the odd fan-fic to test out a scenario. I also like designing things, so there's the odd concept there too!

I'm only too happy to help out with things wherever I can...need a quick historical map drawn or want help coming up with a story concept? Send me a message and I'll see what I can do.

Not a problem! You gave me a watch a while back; I should have returned the favour long ago!
