Cayzle’s Wemic Site                                
                

"Hi! I'm Cayzle."

Those are the words that opened this site for many years. You can still see them on this old archived home page. The site began as a free Web page on the old Geocities, at this address: http://www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/Bridge/9999/. I migrated to a paid Geocities site, and then to Yahoo's paid hosting service, which I still use.

This site launched July 6, 1999. It started off with info for an online RPG I was playing -- I ran a wemic character in that one. Soon enough, I joined a couple other online 2E D&D games, adding descriptions of the wemic PCs from those games to the site. I started searching for and adding links to wemic content around the Web. I wrote a few essays on wemics.

In 2004, in a burst of energy, I revamped the site to give it more of a bloggy feel. I started writing regular "screeds" on wemics, D&D, and related things I found online. I started a fumetti style webcomic, and a sprite based extra, originally as a vote incentive. Then I had my daughter, and that ate up a lot of my time and energy. In 2008 I was laid off in the Great Recession, and survival became the priority; this site was basically on hiatus.

But as the economy has started to turn, I find myself inspired to breathe some new life into this site. Now I've revamped the home page, and I'm adding content, slowly but surely. I *have* been thinking and writing about games over the last few years; I plan to revisit those writings (mostly on old message board posts), and add them to the site as backdated screeds. And I may even resume my webcomic.

So here I am, Cayzle, running the site on pure 100% hand-coded html, adding content when I can. For more info on me, well, I'm a gamer, writer, and player; a husband, father, and homeowner; and a journalist, researcher, and content creator.

Back in the 1970s, playing D&D in high school, we had gotten our hands on a random name table, with which you rolled the dice to generate a name. Using that tool, I randomly rolled the name "Cayzle." The very first character named Cayzle was a dual classed human Fighter7/Magic-User14. You First Edition grognards will recall that level 7 was a sweet break point for 1E fighters because at level 7 you got to attack three times every two rounds! Maybe these days, I can settle for three posts every two weeks!
