Welcome, Living Thing, to Thorin N. Tatge's Splendiferous Life-Giving Website!     

* This is an old website being gradually updated to be less embarrassing. *

At this point, my friend, you have a choice.

What Is Best? An interactive novel

Check out my interactive novel about finding the ultimate goal of life!

My short story "Begin One Way" was published by Brigham Young University's Leading Edge in issue #75.
Buy a copy here!
And check out my second published short story, absolutely free, at Mythaxis Magazine!  It's the one at the end of the issue, "Intercalary Time."

Some friends of mine...

CharlieVermin: Weird Gamewright
A good friend of mine whose games, mostly created with RPG Creator 2003, I find fascinating. Political, clever, funny, and so far outside the box you may forget why there was ever a box in the first place.

Laramie Sasseville: Dreamspell
A friend whose site includes beautiful fantasy-themed art in various media as well as filk songs, unique vanity bookmarks, and the Discordian Coloring Book. She's also available for hire as a graphic designer.

Ship of Hope
Click on the ship to check out Laramie's CafePress shop! Buy journals, clothing, greeting cards and more featuring her fascinating and beautiful art!

Foxfeather Zenkova: Multitalented Artist
I met Fox through her husband, Roman. She's a master of many crafts and a dabbler at many more--overall a rather amazing person. The two of them are consummate animal lovers--their house is full of fascinating pets. Check out her Artist's Statement.
Rich Brown: Some So-Called Music
Rich Brown is a space exploration enthusiast and a filk music devotee. This page features, among other things, the lyrics to his witty and well-structured parody songs about science, science fiction, horror, and social issues.
My mother's website devoted to her extended family.
The website for my house!

 Fabulous Clem
A webcomic I created for half a year.  It's bad, but quite imaginative.


Filking is the music of the science fiction fandom community.  Watch this section stretch the meaning of that term to include pretty much any silly or parodic song!
Every November, hundreds of thousands of people try to dash out a short novel for National Novel Writing Month.  It's a thing!  I've done it a bunch of times.

Is it Storytime? If so, this offball collection of fiction may hit the spot!

On the other hand, sometimes it's poetry that best amuses both hemispheres of our brains.

Perhaps it's speedily written, creative short plays that intrigue you! Check out my scripts for Carleton College's former cold-reading theater group, Chelsea 11:17!

Are you an artiste? Then your senses will perhaps be tickled or offended by my portfolio of Crayola Marker Art!
Marker Art
And here are a few other visually ambiguous arts I have made. Ambigrams


Interested in a stranger's opinions on webcomics? Here's a list of the ones I read and used to read!
First, there was Survivor.  Then, there were a whole lot more Survivors. Season five of this madness was called Survivor: Thailand, and I was there way back when to write overanalytical weekly articles about it. Survivor: Thailand


Are you, by any chance, a fan of the classic action/puzzle game Lode Runner? You are? Then my levels, designed for Sierra's brilliant remake of the game, will rock your world!
Games are an important part of my life. How about yours? If you're interested in checking out my various inventions and variants, this is the place to look.
If you've spent as much time MUCKing about as I have, you may relate to this homage to text-based roleplaying!!
Bashak the hyena.
The time has come!  Make your choice!!!!!
