Oh, well done, Sandifer, well done.
 
This is an epic, magisterial look at the Hugo problems, and at Theodore Beale in particular. As some others have said before me, this is a plausible candidate for the Best Related Work award for next year's Hugos.

Really not a fan of the degree that supplement gives the Eidolon an active personality. A 50 point Power shouldn't turn off when you thwart the Power's unknowable intentions. At that price, it really needs to be reliable.

This is a collection of articles for the City Accelerator tool, mainly gathered here for my convenience, but may be of some interest. One: Introduction · Two: Axes · Three: Ranking · Four: Qualifiers · Five: Workflow · Six: Adding Axes · Seven: Sustaining Creation · Eight: Area Knowledge ...

Nothing much to report, really.  I used it for characterizing a small sidebar area on the way to the main destination (mostly Portal) which we may revisit later (clues/intrigue) as the plot ramps up.  Behind a magic escape portal is a high ridge with thin air and low gravity, furnished marble colonnades, courtyards, pools, and gardens.  The sun is coming up with a great intensity and the roaring of a dawn gale (environmental threat).  Meanwhile a group of uneasy rivals/possible allies has the key to returning (domain, conflict).

Or a fairy under a dead-leaf cloak.  Turn 90 degrees clockwise for the original orientation -- JPG "this way down" indicators not rendering here.

Dropping in the pattern link.  We also got the felt pack, which has been very handy.  https://www.etsy.com/listing/67421134/felt-play-food-pattern-fruit-salad-and

So far I've done the felt banana slices and blueberries.  After the orange slices, maybe the apples or melon balls or strawberry wedges.

Showed my new copy of Microscope to a colleague at work who's a tabletop gamer; he might get a copy to do story gaming with his son, who is starting to get interested in storytelling themes.

Perfectly fine. Annoyed by the collision damage waiver upsell outside in the rain. Otherwise, good price, fine economy car, useful (though separately billed) Seattle bridge toll service.
