A decade ago, the sole thought of playing video games for a living would’ve landed you in a mental institution. Back then, esports was still a term in the making, with the industry being everything but promising, and people fantasizing about it being dubbed as nerds and geeks.

Nowadays, the situation is totally different. The esports industry has developed into a behemoth featuring plenty of career opportunities. Well paid career opportunities, mind you!

It's why I'm very excited that we are now offering a new line of eSports Jerseys called Gamer Warz (www.gamerwarz.com) (pronounced gamer wearz).  Put simply, this is sportswear for electronic athletes. These are designs that are inspired by some of your favorite video games and custom made for the Noname Nerd and only available here. They are made of extremely high quality, athletic quality material and, best of all, they are fully customizable on the front and back. Add your gamer tag, a number, even your own logo to any of the jerseys. We've even included some "blank" jerseys if you are a creative nerd who wants to start from scratch.

So, the Noname Nerd has been in unofficial operation for over a year.  We're a small, family operation with a mission of creating a space where nerds can feel like they belong.  There have been ups and downs and money leaving when none came in.  However, we are on a bit of a roll.  We have a Facebook page with over 4,000 likes, an Instagram with over 2,000 followers, and the one that I am most proud of is a thriving and very active private Facebook group quickly closing on 2,000 members.

I have a confession to make. In addition to loving zombie movies and shows from the Walking Dead and Z Nation to Zombieland and World War Z, I sometimes think about what I would do in case of a zombie apocalypse. Given the wide range of products, books, and even services related to this I know I'm not the only one. But, as a rational, logical nerd, does it really make sense? Is there really a logical reason to prepare for something that is unlikely to happen and, at least in TV and movies, filled with really problematic plot elements (such as the law of thermodynamics)?

So, I've decided to do a little beta-testing of a superhero story construction generator that will allow my fellow Nerds to create superhero stories on their own. My initial format is relatively simple, but I hope to expand on it into more of a "Choose your own adventure" type of storyline built around superheroes that YOU create. That's the idea, at least.

As things develop, I've added opportunities for people to get hand-drawn pictures of their superheroes and my hope is to add an associated customized product line. The stories, however, will remain free and open while you will also have the opportunity to "lock in" your unique hero by adding it to our hero registry. So I hope that you will help me start this new initiative by testing out our FREE superhero story generator!
