It's not that I'm against the Exploding Kittens kickstarter. I'm a backer of that one, too. It's just a little sad that the EK project has 4.1 million dollars and this project below, which FUNNELS LIFE-GIVING WATER FROM THE ETHER, is struggling to reach 100k.
Warka Water Inc. is raising funds for Warka Water: Each drop counts on Kickstarter! Warka Water captures potable water from the air by collecting rain, harvesting fog and dew for rural communities in Ethiopia.

I heard SkyMall is going into bankruptcy. Maybe we'll see kickstarter booklets on airplanes soon :-/

#RPGaDay Day 6: My favorite RPG that I never got to play... Just one? Seriously? Do you know how many underplayed RPGs I own?

Okay - my gut response is Nexus: The Infinite City. Robin's Law's cross-dimensional game of what would really happen if Planescape were a place. Running battles across a dozen realities while smuggling computer chips that may become spell scrolls two streets down and thought crystals at their destination. That is Nexus. A city that is both nowhere and everywhere. I want to play it so much!

With Feng Shui getting another edition and The Strange poised to be big – who knows? Maybe we'll see a reboot of Nexus: The Infinite City sometime.

#RPGaDay The most Old School RPG that I own are the AD&D hardbound books -- 6th printing, January 1980. I sort of borrowed and then never returned them from a very cool Catholic priest who used to run AD&D sessions for teens in the rectory meeting room (no priest jokes, he was a good guy). I hope that Mike Ott knows the amazing path of gaming that he set me upon by letting me keep his books.

#RPGaDay Most recent RPG purchase: I found a lightly used copy of the TSR Marvel RPG with the cards still in shrink for $15 at a local game shop. Yeah.

#RPGaDay Day 3: I'm not entirely sure what was the first RPG that I purchased with my own money. The Christmas after I first got into D&D my parents got me the Red Boxed Set. Now I didn't have to rely on the neighbor kids to play D&D! I read those booklets over and over, including the stuff that was too mathy for my young brain (or for my brain at any age, as I later found).

#RPGaDay Days 1 & 2:  The first RPG I ever played and GM'd was AD&D - the first hardcovers. We had no idea what we were doing, since most of us were around 7 or 8. I was told that a pole arm was a gauntlet with a pole attached to the wrist. We fought and destroyed Tiamat. Regularly. It was awsome.

How old is the skinny GM in this story?

Last 30 minutes on this one. Pretty good pricing, considering it includes international shipping.
4-Sided rollable dice - 3/4 inch ~ 19.05mm Multiple colors with additional designs in the stretch outs. Addons available. Roll that d4.

Because it needs restating until Columbus Day is no more.

$5.69 for a ship and planet (plus the minifig, of course). If you have a Red Card, free shipping. Not bad for quickly assembling an I/O fleet.
The Republic Assault Ship was the troop transporter of choice for the Republic Army. Relive scenes from Star Wars[TM]: Episode II Attack of the Clones, as you transport legions of clone troops , support equipment and vehicles from planet Coruscant[TM] to Geonosis, with the Republic Assault Ship[TM] mini-model! Set includes a hangable planet Coruscant, Republic Assault Ship mini-model, Clone Trooper minifigure and a display stand with name plaque.

Well, the planet series definitely has a few picks out of it. Personally, I just stocked up on Alderaan Tantive IV sets as frigates. They do look pretty good after all.

You'll be happy to know, +Stephen Conway, that the Spiel die redeemed itself shortly thereafter.

To parents of school-age kids, or who will have them soon. You need to see what they go through for the sake of bureaucracy.
End of Grade Testing is going on in schools across our country right now (or recently finished).  I administered one on Reading today in a middle school classroom. Here's what it was like: http://www.vintagefolly.com/wp-conte...

Spoke with a parent of a 3rd grader yesterday who was describing the brutal nature of prep and test at the public MONTESSORI school.

I remember taking lots of end of year tests in elementary  and middle school  (the old Iowa Tests of Basic Skills) but don't remember it being this brutal.

Hi folks. I created this custom using the MDM Photoshop template made by a far more talented graphic designer. It features art by another far more talented artist. The claw marks were my own addition. No rights reserved or even pretended :-)

It uses the Wolvie die. What do you think of the recruitment cost?

Now on to figure out what other MDM dice have symbols that can be re-used!

Such an awesome custom - I'm glad my template is getting some good use.

Tonight the employees turned away two groups (4-5 people each) of new customers, switched off the wifi and turned out the lights without any notice, kicked out the customers who were in the store, and closed two hours early. They said it was due to lack of business, but then why turn away new customers? I think the two guys running the place simply wanted to go home early and not bother with it. I won't go back to a store that treats its customers like that.
