My Collections are RPG, Card Games, and Blogging/G+.

I may add more. It would be nice if some posts could be in two collections, such as both RPG and Science Fiction. 

I used to use this G+ page for RPG stuff only, now I'm doing a card game. You won't get much else from me here, except the occasional comment about my blog, website, or issues with G+ or FB.

To me, neutrinos are what make long range scanners in sci fi ships work. I've thought that ever since I learned about them in college. I don't know if any authors have gone there in their writings, but that's what I'd do.

Episode number 4 of my Anchor podcast is up. I had my first call in! The encouragement is a powerful and welcome thing!

I discuss the struggle of avoiding thinking of how D&D does it when developing your own RPG.

Interesting idea. If you don't have a laminator, or don't want to go somewhere to get it laminated, would clear contact paper work?

That's a lot of work for a map, there's so much more to do prepping for a game. Another reason to like theater of the mind

Interesting video discussing Hex Crawls. A great introduction. This is just the tip of the iceberg. I think I'll have to pull some links together on the blog.

Good progress on prepping my 0 level funnel for UCon in November.
I have not yet run a DCC game, a funnel has less fiddly bits for character/player options. I do better at making my own scenarios to run at cons, & I had an idea that is perfect for DCC.

I typed up my notes from my notebook, so I can better reorganize, etc.
I'm reviewing the DCC rules on 0-level play, monster stats, & looking at some funnels and other DCC modules, to gauge the density of the creatures & challenges.

Now to let it percolate in the back of my mind.

I'm not sure if there is enough interest in DCC in general, to run this multiple times at the same con or not.

I know some GMs run the same scenario 3 or 4 times at the same con. It is less prep and less stuff is needed to make it happen.

Here's a link to other Anchor RPG podcasts I follow.

I work from home, so don't have a commute, but usually run errands on Saturday. I listened to at least one episode of each of these. I played over my car stereo while driving, and used my bluetooth headset when in stores.

I like that most of these are short and I can also fit in an episode here and there during the day.

If you have an Anchor podcast, let me know.
