    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Heather Dale is great! She's also amazingly sweet. I got to spend about 90 minutes with her the year she came to BaltiCon, just hanging out. Captain Marvel looks great! Wish we'd have gotten her movie like 10 movies ago...

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I'm not sure how it's only Tuesday... And yet... At least tonight should be relatively low key. And D&D tomorrow!!
  4. Oh, I read Among Thieves... I liked it! Good to know book 2 is out!
  5. Exactly that. It was the start of a hugely influential series of books and you can see the influences in much of the fantasy work that came after. It's also worth mentioning, I think, that any work by a major SF/F author that came out then was probably read by nearly every fan of the genre, since there just wasn't all that much being published. You could, for instance, find some or all of that series in nearly every library in the country (that had any SF/F) for at least 20 years after its publication, which meant that the books ended up in the hands of all the kids who couldn't afford to buy their own books and were fans of the genre. There was a commonality of experience among fans then that there really can't be today. But the cost of that commonality was that there wasn't anything like the current variety of SF/F. Tradeoffs. I, for one, am glad to have access to, and have read some of the old stuff, but am much happier about the current variety of SF/F that's currently available. Speaking of, my preorder of Myke Cole's book of of his Armored Saint series arrives tomorrow!!

    Oh, yeah, I got a package too!! It had a case of poop bags. Useful, and you know... what I ordered... but... Boring. Thankfully it also came with some new dice! (one of those $10 for 7 sets of D&D dice fished out of the big river). And DP2? Fantastic!!

    Why try to invent something new when real life is weird enough? I think you're lying... Home early. Was gonna do hangouts, but my bride is also coming home early, and we're gonna watch Deadpool 2 instead!

    Wish it was that cool here. "The prime/don't prime holy war will rage three days past Ragnarok." From the reaper Facebook group.

    I like it. It's a good use of the skill mechanic, and fits in with the feywild being a magical place where there's no such thing as a straight line. ^^This I have high hopes for the DCC Lankhmar boxed set due out soonish. Oh, and the Blight is... kinda great. I appreciate that you recommended it.

    Getting to Know You: Sept 2018

    Making it through a chunk of @malefactus' woodlands, escaping @buglips*the*goblin's moon palace air vents maze, running @Pezler the Polychromatic's rainbow bridges. Surviving a hug from one of @Guindyloo's kids. Having a coke with @Dr. Wyrm.

    I mean, all it takes is a good layout person... I happen to know several. I also know a ton of people who still love judges guild stuff. I... prefer a *little* more polish myself.

    Have you considered putting this all together for others to use... Not to mention the other settings you've come up with? Seriously. You're amazingly prolific and inventive, and I'd be willing to drop modest amounts of cash on it. D&D this morning was fun. I love dangling things in front of my players that they've yet to encounter. Not to mention false leads. They still haven't discovered that the Oricle they sometimes visit sometimes lies...

    Desk? It's sadly just a little tray that gets put away after every use.

    No worries, I'm very careful about that!

    Painting!! And drinking! There's probably a reason I switched from working on my dancing girl to dry brushing gravestones....

    Sigh. Elfing autocorrupt. Sometimes I think that autocorrupt’s particular flavor of corruption is Slaaneshi. Well, yours is anyway!

    Wait... there's a vault? Like, and actual vault? And not just some broom closet off in the corner?
