Soon, you’ll be able to fuel up with these brand-new oil can sippers. You may be familiar with the Dinoco oil company from Disney•Pixar “Cars” (note the gas pumps and oil cans outside of Flo’s V8 Café). Look for these fun souvenir items when they “check in” at Cozy Cone Motel in Cars Land for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration 24-hour event on May 22.

I still love the ORE, and the Wild Talents system. I agree some of the settings are incredible. The ORE is still there for me along with Fate and GUMSHOE as my personal "big three" systems.

In my in-progress Fate Accelerated Edition game Wardens of Ouon, I want to discourage physical violence. The unicorns of the Forest of Ouon are supposed to find peaceful solutions to problems, falling back on combat only as a last resort. This goes hand-in-...
