Welcome to Kate’s Place

What ho, you stunningly attractive, noble-hearted and incorruptible reader. I’m Kate Coldwind, aka Kate Martin, and I’m hugely pleased you’ve taken time out of your day to visit me here.

Now, since I generally offer this site as a way of getting at my social media accounts, I’ll start by giving you those links:

I’m on Facebook HERE; and on Twitter, THIS is me.

As well as the Famous Social Media sites, I sometimes write stuff on the bloggy bit of this site. It’s not nearly as often as professional content creatorhood would demand (nor as professional; hell, it barely qualifies as content except in the bubble-wrap space-filler sense), but if you’d like to read what’s there, just click HERE.

If, for any reason, you’d like to know a little bit more about me as a person, like I’ve got some sort of celebrity complex and amn’t just a random obscure blog-keeper, but anyway if you do you’ll want to click on THIS link for that sort of thing.

There’s a page of links to some useful pages and resources I visit HERE, and I really should pad it out a bit more before long.

It’s like a bloody Choose-Your-Own-Adventure, isn’t it? Feel free to mark a page and turn back if you fall down a big pit or get squished by an ogre. I used to cheat at those books all the time myself.

Elsewhere on the Internet, you might find me gaming — though I tend to play games of rather specific types and not very many online ones. I’m not a fan of your CoDs or your MoHs or your Fortnites or Destinies/Anthems or CounterStrikes or Splatoons or PUBGs or Mario anythings, mostly because I’m rubbish at them — actually, I’m fairly rubbish at the games I do play, but let it pass — and at least partially because I’m a liberal lefty snowflake SJW pacifist and don’t much like wargames (excluding Splatoon and Mario stuff there, of course — even I don’t object to shooting paint at each other in cartoon games).

You can find me on Elite: Dangerous as Commander Nihila Vex. I’m normally hanging around dahn the Empire, but occasionally venture further afield. Recently I’ve become enwrapped amongst the Hutton Orbital Radio Truckers — as fine a bunch of barely-hinged mug-brandishers as you’re like to find this side of the Formidine Rift. In keeping with the above expression of pacifistic sentiment, of course Commander Vex is an entirely peaceful trader and definitely does not engage in contracted murder for money — not even for the Hutton Truckers who, as mentioned, are lovely people and would never ask some shady Vulture driver to take out any inconvenient personages on their behalf.

My various Guild Wars 2 characters you’ll find under Aekat.7806. I tend not to play very often, but it’s a staple fallback whenever I get bored of space-flying.

I’ve put a few hours into the new-and-improved No Man’s Sky — but if you can find me in that, you’re doing better than I am. I mean, I’m me, and I don’t know where to find me in No Man’s Sky. I don’t know how to find anything in No Man’s Sky.

Apart from iron. I can usually find iron. And thamium-9 isn’t that hard, either.

In summary, best way to message me is via social media. Again, that’s Twitter (open DMs) or Facebook.

So hopefully that’s helped. And if it turns out you’re here by accident and were looking for someone else instead, they’re over there. Tell them I said hi.
