So obviously this is open to anyone who wants to make a guess, whether you are a gamer or non-gamer. The context is my use of real US coins as props for playing my Dungeons & Dragons "neo-clone" Seven Voyages of Zylarthen. Among other things, kids love handling real coins. Read the blogpost for more background and some hints on the composition of this "hoard". The winner will receive all five physical Zylarthen booklets, freshly printed from Lulu or RPGNow!

One of my life's greatest accomplishments was guessing the number of beans in a jar for Miss Prescott's second grade class. I actually measured the container and made primitive mathematical calculations, etc. Amazingly, I got the total EXACTLY right. Miss Prescott thought I had cheated (I hadn't) and refused to give me the prize. There's a lesson in that, I suppose.

Announcing the third (not very annual) Save Versus All Wands contest! How much actual money (in US currency) is there in the blog heading picture? In the post I talk about using actual coins as props for game play and thus provide an explanation for what you're looking at. Vote once in the blog comments. The winner will receive the four original Seven Voyages of Zylarthen booklets plus the first supplement, Book of Spells. Contest ends at midnight (CST) on Halloween. Good Luck!

"We've nothing to fight with except our bare hands,
But we'll keep on trying until the plane lands
One way or the other. We've taken our stand.
My darling, I love you. Goodbye."

"Flight 93 no more will fly.
Dead on the ground or dead in the sky:
You might not survive, but at least you can try.
Stand up and bring the ship down."

Yesterday Cardinal Cupich (or some poor millennial entrusted with managing his Twitter account) made another somewhat innocuous tweet, this time about his "remarks" on capital punishment at an American Bar Association event. Within 24 hours it had received 99 replies. With the exception of a set of extremely strange tweets from a woman who appeared to have a bee in her bonnet about Mafia infiltration (Sicilian not Lavender) in the Church, every reply was critical of Cupich (virtually all, strongly critical, to put it mildly).

Every. Single. Reply. Even the pictures.

The factual claims in Vigano's statement are rapidly being confirmed by numerous sources, both generally and in detail. Francis cannot deny them, hence his "no comment" of yesterday. And his evil minions are doing the only thing they can: attack the character and motivations of the source. Is this the end for Francis?
