At last report** you were working at a place that processed cardboard into finished boxes? What happened to that job?

**Did I  miss some important news..?


 For about three years, Jack worked at Sheffield Pharmaceuticals, for a year running a box-making machine, then two years doing general warehouse. Jack left that job due to health reasons (unable to do another winter out on the loading dock), was unemployed for about seven months, then recently got a job at ACME Wire running a welding robot but had to leave the other week when his three-month temp time was up due to his arthritis making him unable to perform certain aspects of the job. As Jack was leaving the temp service that Friday after picking up his check, the temp lady came out as Jack was getting back into the car and offered him a new assignment that started on Monday of this last week. That temp assignment was for a place called Atlantic City Linen, which washes commercial laundry from hotels/casinos/etc. ACL turned out to be pretty much a sweatshop (well-paying, but definitely a sweatshop)that would much rather employ day laborers than hire people, and Jack doesn't need that kind of chaos and stress in his life.

So now Jack's looking for another temp-to-hire assignment.

 1679-1752? Yeah, if the bacon's that old, it's definitely time to throw it out.

What I've seen it's more or less a 5.5. It's not anther edition per se, but they are making backwards compatible. Heck, even the playtest, has references to the 5e Player's Handbook. It'll be 2024 when the new Player's Handbook releases.

I think that they may be addressing some of the promises made while 5e was still in Beta.

I will try to Google-hunt it, but what is an OPR Army?  Could one be built from Bones Core sets?

One Page Rules - we were at the pagan retreat this weekend - Megan ran a game, I ran two, and she used OPR miniatures.


I'm certain that there were more GW players than OPR players at the retreat - the marvel is that she found any OPR players, let alone four of them. ::):


OPR is heading for 10,000 Patreons, impressive as that may be, it is tiny compared to either GW or Reaper.
