There are only 10 kinds of people in the world: Those who know binary, and those who don't.

A Multifarious Compendium

Just me

Although I -along with my wife, Elizabeth- own & operate Kai Mountain Ventures which provides a wide range of services; from tech consulting, to event photography, to massage therapy) this website is for my personal projects & interests.

You also may be here looking for my books. They live here too. Quick status updates are available to the right, or you can find much more detail at the link above.

Here you will find all kinds things that I have created, found interesting, or thought needed a wider audience. This site is always changing around and I add new bits all the time. While this leads to a non-static site, it also lends itself to occasional inadvertent breakage. Sorry about any nicked corners.

Fours & Hexes

Over the past month or so I've been crafting a small tabletop wargame called Fours & Hexes.

Each player commands a contingent consisting of four Pieces ranging from Elven Archers to Hobgoblin Knights. You will make tactical decisions to outsmart and destroy your opponents while taking elements such as terrain and shifting weather into account.

If you've ever wanted to dip your toes into wargaming but thought Warhammer was too intimidating, this is the game for you. If you enjoy Chess but find it too predictable, this is the game for you.

Wizard Tales & Lizard Beards - Completed First Draft

1,048 days ago, on 1 Nov. 2019, I started writing Wizard Tales & Lizard Beards; an anthology of 11 fantasy stories.

While I did get side tracked by drafts 2-4 on several of them, I have now completed the first draft for the entire project.

It currently comes out to 182,328 words (~520 pages).

NaNoWriMo 2021

I participated in —and suceeded at— NaNoWriMo 2021; writing an additional 50,000+ in the month of November. I continued to put my focus this year on my anthology Wizard Tales & Lizard Beards. I completed two more of the stories, and am on the verge of completing the final piece.
