So this should stay the header for my live journal for a bit.
Welcome to here. There are things with words below. If you wish to friend me, feel free. If I didn't want people reading the things with words below, a public website was probably a very poor choice of publishing venues. Come say hi if you do though. I like hearing about how people found this little nook.

There aren't really enough of you for me to need rules yet, but just in case:
Rule 1: Be civil to each other.
Rule 2: If you are a spam bot, be relevant and interesting. Otherwise I really don't want your kind here.


I'll probably be adding to this post over time.



I promised to do this last night, and this is the first time I've been at an internet connection since yesterday.
For those of you who asked for my url last night, here's the current links to my campaign posts:

My initial thoughts before I went down to help at the campaign office for the first time:

  • Tue, 19:03: @TheRpgAcademy before you go too far to say they're a big corporation and we can't know what they do? They did consult with other writers about changes they made to those writers work. For some reason they did not consult with this one and they added a bunch of racism
  • Tue, 19:14: @TheRpgAcademy so if you take a look at the adventures on the adventures guild, the more professionally prepared ones that tend to be more heavily edited and play tested run about 5 to $7 a piece. Some of them are a good bit more.
