May the Fourth Be With You!

May the FourthI can still remember lining up to see Star Wars the first week it came out. I don’t know that any of the franchise will ever equal the thrill of that experience seeing “Star Wars” — later known as “Star Wars IV: A New Hope” for the first time.

In truth, I’ve enjoyed all the episodes in the franchise. I look forward to “Solo: A Star Wars Story” when it comes out — later in the month..

May the FourthI can still remember lining up to see Star Wars the first week it came out. I don’t know that any of the franchise will ever equal the thrill of that experience seeing “Star Wars” — later known as “Star Wars IV: A New Hope” for the first time.

In truth, I’ve enjoyed all the episodes in the franchise. I look forward to Star Wars: Rogue One coming later in the year.

Can you really believe that there is controversy over there being female lead characters in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the upcoming Star Wars: Rogue One? I guess I can believe it, though it saddens me.

Force Friday!

Force FridayI’m waiting the new movies with bated breath! I can still remember lining up to see Star Wars in the first week it came out.

“Where’s Gnorman?” Solution: (SPOILER!)


 


This is a tournament for fighters fighting on foot. It is held just outside the city. Have fun finding Gnorman! He’s in there somewhere… but there are also other gnomes.

I hope you enjoyed this anniversary special!

Thanks!

First Anniversary!

It was one year ago that I created “The Gnome Tapestry”. I had a number of “Gnomestead Tapestry” stories done up as well as a few “Wheel Tales of Willow City“. I had hopes of doing the SciFi spoof and farce series as well. I hope you have enjoyed reading the cartoons. It wasn’t long after that I added “Space Trek” to “Gnomestead Tapestry” and “Wheel Tales of Willow City”.

Thank you for reading!

Where’s Gnorman? — The Gnomestead Tapestry 1st Anniversary

For our 1st anniversary I thought I’d post another “Where’s Gnorman?” special. At this time the Kingdom is holding one of their tournaments. For this tournament the combatants will be on foot. They use special non-lethal weapons as this is all in sport.

One year ago I started “The Gnome Tapestry”. I decided to do a special “Where’s Gnorman?” to mark the occasion. Clicking on the image will bring you the full-sized image. But be warned it is 18MB in size.

In this past year I’ve posted over 200 posts! Here’s looking to the upcoming year!

I hope you enjoy this and share it around!

A place for sharing stories
Taverns are where folks gather
All are welcome there.

The gateway into the keeps great hall.

The gateway into the keep’s great hall. Often open during the day, but closed at night and requiring a password.

Entry to the Keep
Welcomes those of peaceful bent
Speak friend and enter

The churchyard, fenced not to keep people in our out, but just to let you know it's there.

Peaceful meeting place
The churchyard green for folks
Spend time on your soul


Here are three locations that have been or will be used in The Gnomestead Tapestry. I’m showing them without the tapestry borders I normally use. It gives more room for the set, though a little loss of tradition.
