So did the Indie RPG Awards dry up and disappear? The domain has been hijacked as far as I can tell. Confused. :(

Listening to the soundtrack of Oblivion and answering Mass Effect: Fate RPG questions is a pretty nice way to spend a low key Saturday morning! (Plus, it's the music we listened to while we played the game, so there's that. Good memories++!)

Looking at my analytics, 50K get requests in the past 24 hours totaling 94.7 GB of downloads, or roughly 1,000 downloads of the core (print) book. At one point 21.2GB in one hour was consumed.

How much do I like props? So much so that when I did a Rock Band-themed birthday party years back I made backstage passes, tickets, flyers, and even a promo slick sheet for the band. That included a fictional backstory for the digital band members. (References to Shari and her "early stewardess years" are not exaggerated.)

Plus, playing on expert drums is as close as I get to a workout anymore these days!

"may HAVE"  :-)

I did not personally play the Mass Effect computer-game, so I may not get much out of it.  Have you tailored the Fate rules well for combat?

So, this might take awhile to catalog before selling....

Surprisingly few sentimental pangs, my Basic D&D and AD&D not withstanding. Some of these books I got when I was ten.

+Don Mappin  in those piles of games that you are looking to unload, any chance you have West End Games' Ghostbusters?  If so, let me know if you are looking to part with it.

Lunch fun: my starship dedication plaques have gotten some airtime on FB so I thought I'd toss a few up here. I have the Photoshop source file if anyone wants to make their own. It was based on another person's fine work at DeviantArt. I just cleaned up with some assets that I had from working with Paramount/VCP.
