Do not tell me to "get a life". I already have several.

Mosaic self-portrait

Welcome to Jane's home page! In what passes for "real life", I'm a database designer and web coder. But you don't want to know about that, do you? In the usual thing of cobblers' children being short of shoes, my own website isn't updated anything like as often as it should be, and the design is.... yes. I'm a coder, OK?

Navigation around some of my lives may be found below. As well as those, I make things (cooking, sewing, knitting...), I like teddy bears and Beanie Babies, I have a harp, I'm obsessed with swords... but as yet none of this has got on line.

Worlds I inhabit

Glorantha (fantasy role-playing and writing)
Strongoak (medieval recreation)
The Washington Artillery (American Civil War)
Wargaming (mainly HOTT or DBA - fantasy, ancients, Dark Age)

Online games I play

Knight Fight - haven't played it for ages, but the utilities are there for those who do.
Renaissance Kingdoms

Me in other places


What's new?

I've finally got my non-Gloranthan writing on line, and given it its own page! Poetry, stories, songs...

Easter Sunday breakfast, after an evening of HOTT. Those are Dragonewts, and that must be the Nest.

Here's the recipe
I don't know why the yoghurt did that, but I wish it hadn't. The end result tasted OK, but I'm sure that wasn't the plan - it was meant to turn into a past-like sauce.

Also sugar-free and lactose-free, and very yummy.

ZOC issue

ZOC issue

A HOTT game. There's this column of troops marching up the road, with the artillery getting left a little behind the shooters. My flyer lands to one side, menacingly, and Barkers them. What, if anything, can artillery or shooters do? Neither have enough room to line up with the front of the flyer without overlapping the other.
