Famous Wizards of Distinction: Backgrounds and Spells of Magic Users — Harry Dresden

Greetings my fellow Nerdarchists. From time to time I highlight famous wizards of distinction by delving into the backgrounds and spells of magic users. Having already completed articles on Leomund, the nerdy prepper, Tenser, the one man army for goodness, Drawmij, the mysterious traveler and Otiluke, the siege alchemist. I now turn my attention to a very Famous Wizard of Distinction, Harry Dresden.

Famous Wizards of Distinction: Backgrounds and Spells of Magic Users – Bigby

Greetings my fellow Nerdarchists. In the weeks and months to come I am going to highlight famous wizards of distinction by delving into the backgrounds and spells of magic users .

I have already completed articles on Leomund- the nerdy prepper, Tenser- the One Man Army for Goodness, Drawmij the Mysterious Traveler, and Otiluke- the Siege Alchemist.

I will continue focusing on famous wizards of distinction from RPGs but that does not mean I am excluding the backgrounds and spells of magic users from books, movies, and comics.

Famous Wizards of Distinction: Backgrounds and Spells of Magic Users — Tenser

Greetings my fellow Nerdarchists. In the weeks and months to come I am going to highlight famous wizards of distinction by delving into the backgrounds and spells of magic-users . I have already completed articles on Leomund, the nerdy prepper and Otiluke the Siege Alchemist. Now I am turning my thoughts towards Tenser. Why Tenser? Why now? Well I chose him by accessing my on board bio-computer with search parameters of “whomever I feel like.” It spit back Tenser for an answer. Without any input to the contrary I’ll focus on famous wizards of distinction from RPGs but that does not mean I am excluding the backgrounds and spells of magic users from books, movies, and comics. Give me a compelling example of wizardry and I’ll write it up.

Famous Wizards of Distinction: Backgrounds and Spells of Magic Users - OtilukeWhy Otiluke? Why now? Well I chose him by following the “whomever I feel like writing about now” directive. Are there some famous wizards you want to hear about next time? Then all that you must do is tell me which wizard you want to read about. If he or she is one of the famous wizards of distinction then please comment below and let me know who you want to read about next.

Greetings my fellow Nerdarchists. In the weeks and months to come I am going to highlight famous wizards of distinction by delving into the backgrounds and spells of magic users .

I know. I know. Nate the Nerdarch, friend to the lazy nerd and researcher extraordinaire!

The only order I will be following is the “whomever I feel like writing about” order. Unless there are some famous wizards you want to hear about next. If there is a wizard you like that you think is one of  the famous wizards of distinction then please comment below and let me know who you want to read about next. (Update: Otiluke is next check him out here)

For my first wizard I chose a man after my own nerdy prepper heart, Leomund.  Leomund Famous wizards of distinction: Backgrounds and Spells of Magic Users

Origami Inspired Self-assembling Robots give this Nerd Dreams of Transformers

Nate the Nerdarch here to tell you about some new robot tech inspired by, one of my favorite old school arts, origami. These origami inspired robots were made using specialized paper and plastic augmented in such a way as to self fold when heat was applied.

With the addition of a power supply and motor the transformer robot was able to crawl and turn on its own.  In case you’re not cheering for the creation of folding transformer robots and wondering why they even researched this here is why they did it.

RPG’s For Charities Playing The Pathfinder RPG For Good Causes

Hello Nerdarchy reader,

Nerdarchist Dave here and I was recently contacted by RPG’s For Charities and asked for their help. After hearing what they were all about how could I say no. Nerdarchy is all about promoting all things nerdy and we like the idea of being socially conscious. Nerdarchy plans on making charity a part of the Nerdarchy way. We have only been around a short time and have already made charitable donations and supported various crowd funding projects both through promotion and our dollars.

Living life in peace…”

Greetings and Salutations Nerdarchy Readers,

Today I wanted to try something a tad more candid. If you would, a bit more real.

It has been a long standing annoyance of mine that within the nerd community there is an overwhelming level of negative comments and misplaced ill will.

Join The Fun With Mystic Realms Fantasy Fair In Wheaton Villiage, New Jersey

larpHello my fellow nerds out there.  It looks like my columns are becoming more a regular here, It is I Nerdarchist Ted.  While I should have spent the day at Wizard World Philly, life intervened and forced me in another direction.

I am glad it was as I was able to attend the Mystic Realms Fantasy Faire in Wheaton Villiage and what a day it was.  Apart from dipping my feet back into the LARP well where my larping originated it was a good show.

As always with the Mystic Realms Fantasy Faire you have a mix of stage shows and vendors, but in addition to that you have a number of interactive places to visit as well as many cool people in costumes.

Super Nerd Skills | ARMA, Association for Renaissance Martial Arts and Swordsmanship

Greetings Nerdarchs, and welcome to the second installment of Super Nerd Skills where we will discuss ARMA, a.k.a. the Association for Renaissance Martial Arts and the swordsmanship that they practice. Now before we go on lets clarify a few points on how this is a super nerdy skill. First, martial arts, is a system of combat skills used for defense, fighting, strengthening, etc… Hmmm doesn’t sound too nerdy, sounds kind of buff. I believe the second part will clarify how it fits into Super Nerd Skills.
