Wow. Um... wow.

Staggeringly beautiful. Actual footage of the sun. Not SFX. Breathtaking.

Wow! A game that was previously inspired buy the world of Steven Brust's Jhereg will actually have an officially sanctioned Jhereg playset. If it meets its next stretch goal, anyway.
 
Ok, so Mr. Harper got me again with this cool sounding game about a crew of scoundrels in the dark post-apocalyptic modern fantasy city of Duskwall. I think what really got me was the idea of the team having it's own character sheet with abilities that improve over time.
John Harper is raising funds for Blades in the Dark on Kickstarter! Blades in the Dark is a tabletop RPG about a crew of daring scoundrels building a criminal empire in a haunted city full of thieves.

Or HQ communities in general, now that I think about it.

Wow! The new HQ book is going to have some unexpectedly cool art and subject matter. It is apparently much more than the simple clarification and consolidation of rules that I had expected...
 
So among the many things HQG has is Illumination rules. And lots and lots of Illumination information, since that is important for any post 1627 campaign. This picture is perhaps my absolute favorite depiction of the Gloranthan gods to date (excepting of course for the Gods Wall, which is  a different sort of things). The depiction of the gods are very canonical btw. And this is the first time you see several of them painted.

I was thinking about the old Get Smart! TV show this morning and realized that it will be 50 years old this September. Wow. I feel ancient and... loving it!

Only another 70 years until it enters the public domain.

RIP Allie the Dog. She dug under our back-yard fence and was promptly hit by a car. She was the most affectionate and playful dog I have ever owned, and she is sorely missed.

Now that they are starting chapter 3: The White Bear I think there is enough here to get a good running start on the story. If you have an interest in Glorantha and it's legendary Hero Wars then this webcomic is a must read!
