Silently, slowly and surely, Great A'Tuin paddles through space, its great eyes surveying the dark, empty wastes before and behind it. Standing on A'Tuin's great back are four enormous elephants, straining under the colossal weight of the Discworld itself. It sparkles with magic, reflects the light of the stars and generally fails to be as unobtrusive as possible.

Hi! My name is Kevin/groggydog (he/him) and I'm primarily known for speedrunning games and writing beginners' guides. I'm a fiendishly curious hobbyist, and one of my favorite things in the world is learning a completely new genre of games or artistic endeavors.

In that light, I decided to compile all my random blogs and hobbies under one web umbrella and showcase some of the things I'm most proud of.

In the sections below you can find links to a wide array of things I've done: speedruns (both personal bests and runs in charity marathons, like SpeedGaming and the European Speedrunners Assembly), miniature painting, and beginners guides to speedrun routes and the Final Fantasy randomizer (not featured there: my first big guide for earning the Wayfarer title in Destiny 2, and my guide for earning the elusive FFXIV Triple Triad Magicked Card Mount).

I've also got a deep and abiding love of the Final Fantasy franchise. I have happily beaten every mainline Final Fantasy game, and am perhaps too eager to share my thoughts on the games. You can find my cursory opinions here.

This website was written entirely in Notepad and is based on the Multi-User Dungeons (MUDs) I played as a kid that encouraged me to really explore the weird and niche sides of gaming. Specifically, the header text is from the Discworld MUD, based on the works of Terry Prachett, in which I was a Priest of the god Fish, worked for the community newspaper, and had a nice little house.

Thanks for stopping by!
