"Don`t be foolish. A castle without a crypt is like a unicorn without a horn."
Introduction
Circle me for: Tabletop Gaming of all kinds. Or, if you know me in meat space. That's pretty much all I'm online for. Never mind here. Just in general: games, "staying in touch."

Follow me at:
Twitter: for most of the links I see fit to share. It's basically a live feed from my tablet.
Or...
Right here on Google+: for stuff too long for Twitter, but too short for a blog post. Also, most random status updates go here (As it turns out, it looks like going forward into 2015 google+ will just be the place to watch for blog updates - if you don't subscribe to the RSS. I'm not taking the trouble to post here as often as I thought I would.)

Gamera rocks
Gamera has a very different vibe from the Godzilla movies. I suppose to some one who either doesn't like giant monster flicks or perhaps hasn't seen enough of them to draw comparisons, a lot of Gamera (particularly the early stuff) would scan as "godzilla.....

"Mind your purse strings?" Sir, I take offense to that. Surely, after equipping all over my fine township, you have nothing left to take. You take me for some fool of a tallfellow? A klepto goblin, perhaps? I take offense.

Ever wonder what happened to the sloth's speed? Goblins stole it. Problem is, these days the resale value isn't what it used to be.
