It's what I have been using for years. It's not overtly Labyrinth Lord, Basic Fantasy, B/X or BECMI compatible, but something that should work with all the above.

For me, a Wiccan that has no problem with the evil witch scenario, I would like to see a class that by the decisions made could be a nature worshiper or someone that has entered a pact with something not so nice. Right now I'm watching Salem and just saw The Witch movie and love that route. Want to fly all the time?? No problem it just takes the fat of a new born child. How far are you willing to go for your power? Volo's Guide is the step in the right direction with classes and monsters in that your class and what you are should give a lot of the story drive. A good witch can be powerful too, but the road is longer to get there.

Normally I like Steak & Shake. I don't expect much. This one though has been consistently bad for a while. The last time I went I was with my kids. There were a lot of families with kids in fact there, most of them left due to the terrible service. We stayed, because we had already ordered and had waited an hour we figured they could not be any later. They were. The food was certainly nothing to brag about. I don't expect a lot here, but even this failed to meet my already low expectations. Frankly I am not sure how they have remained in business.

What is there not to love about the Shedd? It is one of THE treasures of Chicago. We have been going for years and we never get tired of it. Always something new to see. Been a Shedd Member for years and likely will continue to be one.

Growing up in J'ville our choices of authentic Mexican cuisine were limited to non-existent. Los Rancheros has fixed that now. It's a really great local place and really, really inexpensive. Have I had better Mexican food? Yes, but in the Mexican neighborhoods of Chicago. This place is good and much easier for locals to get to. Portions are huge. So bring friends, an appetite or both.
