No, I mean, that's my whole point! They're way the heck out in a mystical crypto-Tibetan realm of gigantic mountains and magical defenses, who is wardriving for unsecured networks out there?

@AndrewValorson @HillaryClinton @BernieSanders it's a 30 year misogynistic smear campaign. Elizabeth Bear. 5h5 hours ago. Elizabeth Bear @matociquala. I've realized that the leftie Hillary hate thing actually has me intimidated to say this, because so many friends are grudging or worse.

Beautiful art for a great game. The covert art of the young centurions books never ceases to amaze me.

We recently put together a guide helping you figure out how to register to vote. If that’s still too complex, however, Google’s making it even easier. Simply search “how to register to vote” and Google will tell you how to do it in your state.

Story
Tagline
Father to two, game publisher, blogger
Introduction
Fred Hicks is a dad, a gamer, and a game publisher. He runs Evil Hat Productions, and does freelance art direction and layout work for the occasional other game publisher. The rest of the time, though, he's looking after his kids, and spending time with his wife. Life is good.

This is Fred's Google+ home. If you want to fight with him in his home, he will block you, not because you're a dick (but please don't fight with him here), but because his emotional health and sense of peace is more important to him than your alleged right to swing a virtual fist.
