A Kings Castle: The End

Way back on Feb 2nd 2017, Jak and J. Nyx left their humble WordPress blogs to create A King’s Castle.  Our focus was to shift the focus of negativity found in the manosphere and red pill community to the next steps.  Pushing past the constant gaming of women and focusing more on raising a family as a traditional man.  It has been a great project, and we’ve met and had fun with a ton of great individuals, but after churning out articles 5 days a week, its taken its toll, and we’ve both decided to move on.

Pursue Meaning, Not Expedience

“Expedience— that’s hiding all the skeletons in the closet. That’s covering the blood you just spilled with a carpet. That’s avoiding responsibility. It’s cowardly, and shallow, and wrong.”

-Jordan Peterson

Lately, the Fraternity of Excellence that I’m a part of has been reading through Jordan Peterson’s book The 12 Rules for Life.  It can be a bit dry and tedious in some areas, but overall, it’s still a very interesting read with many good points.

One such point that has been on my mind quite a bit as of late is Rule 7 of his book, “Pursue what is meaningful, not what is expedient.” Continue reading “Pursue Meaning, Not Expedience”

3 Free Apps to Keep You Organized and Productive

Let’s face it, life can often be hectic and unorganized, especially if you got little ones running around the house.  People used to keep to-do lists on little sheets of paper or on sticky notes, but those can be easily lost or may require many revisions, leaving you marking out and rewriting what needs to get done.  Continue reading “3 Free Apps to Keep You Organized and Productive”

Annals of Dread Game

Someone mentioned in the comments the other day about how there are so many quality articles that were published well before many of you were regularly following us.  With the suggestion of pulling some of our older posts from the archives, I present you dear readers with a few of my favorite posts from the 12 Levels of Dread series along with a quick description of each  to give you an idea of the topics covered in each article.

Writing about the 12 Levels of Dread in detail was an enjoyable experience as I felt there was much left unsaid in the original Reddit post on the subject.

For those of you who are new and are still navigating through the hundreds of posts on A King’s Castle, I hope you glean something of value from these articles.   Continue reading “Annals of Dread Game”

How Stoicism and Empathy Keep the Family Strong

Some of you have probably noticed that I haven’t been as active in the comments section this week as I normally am.  The reason for this is because my father in law has been in the hospital the past few days due to a possible spider bite that has developed into a full-on skin/blood infection.

The hospital he is staying at is waiting on a culture to develop so they can begin treating what inflicting him specifically Continue reading “How Stoicism and Empathy Keep the Family Strong”

ZFG Revisited

J.Nyx often writes about the ZFG mentality and why each man should begin incorporating this mindset into their life.  ZFG, or “Zero Fucks Given,”  is one of the Red Pill concepts that simply states a man shouldn’t care about what others think about them.

Some guy at the bar lobs an insult at you? Ignore it.

Wife tries to pick a fight? Laugh it off.

ZFG has its merits, I would never argue against that, but it is possible to take the ZFG mentality too far to where it has negative repercussions on your own life and the lives of those close to you. Continue reading “ZFG Revisited”

How To Make Overnight Oats

When it comes to food, I often get on a kick where I’ll make one thing I really enjoy for a week or two and happily munch away until I either get tired of it or find something else that interests me.  For the past week, I have gotten back into making overnight oats.  They are delicious, filling, and as nutritious (or not) as you want to make them.

Today, I’m going to cover the basics of making overnight oats and what you can add to the oats to improve their flavor and nutrition, because let’s face it, oatmeal by itself is about the nastiest food known to Western Civilization. Continue reading “How To Make Overnight Oats”
