Strafe, Beyond Skyrim, Elder Scrolls Online, Sid Meier’s Starships & Star Citizen news

Hey everyone, just wanted to say thanks for stopping by haha! The website hit 13,000 hits a few days ago and now this blog just hit 100 unique visitors since I moved in September 2014.

Blake’s Sanctum Backed Up!

Been working over at Internet Archive to get almost my entire site backed up so that if anything ever happens to me or webring then the site will live on!

Sadly videos and scrolling backgrounds don’t seem to work in the archived copy but thumbnails, backgrounds, animations and music do so its better than nothing!

HERE is the archived copy for anyone curious.
