Tartarus: The collectible card game for fantasy RPG lovers

In ancient times, the Gods went to war. The victory meant supreme power over the world, and defeat meant spending eternity in Tartarus. The Titanomachy saw Zeus, son of Reya and God of Thunder and Lightning, go to war with the Titans, led by Kronos, King of the Titanes and the God of time, and …

The Twitter End

Writing this blog post is bitter-sweet. It serves as my final work towards my grade (yay!). But, it also means that one of my favourite subjects of all time is drawing to a close.

The ‘Bathroom Billboard’: Gender Politics of Single-Sex Bathroom Graffiti

The bare walls of a public bathroom stall present a perfect opportunity: almost untraceable anonymous self-expression.
