Free For All! Complete Characters So Far.

Rule of life: Everything worth doing is harder than it looks. I talked yesterday about getting things going with Jason Richards Publishing , mostly just announcing that such a thing exists and that you can run over to DriveThruRPG and download some great gaming materials, for free.

40K Rogue Trader’s Rising Star

A quick hit today, as I frantically attend to matters of business across the real world and Internet. This absolutely deserves a post, however, so I will proceed.

Quick Hit: Geek Itinerary

Lots to do this weekend, my friends. Lost to do. I have before me a rare weekend that presents to me no extraneous “to do” list. I don’t have to go anywhere. I don’t have to do yard work. I’m not being called into the office. To my knowledge, the wife does not have any surprises to drop on me at the last minute. This means that I can get…
