This serious video about the economic value of water in space has a little Easter egg at 5:36 in.

If 5:36 is how Planetary Resources models and tests stuff, I think I have a resume they'd be interested in...

I'm currently stuck in that weird state of paralysis that prolongs a long blogging hiatus. This past year was a combination of crazy life stuff and not actually playing RPGs, which left me uninspired and out of time to write. Now that things have settled a bit, I find myself wanting to get back into it, but still frozen.

Any thoughts on returning to blogging after a long break? Do you explain your absence or just jump in? How do you avoid false starts? I had a couple of these earlier in the spring. Do you use it as an opportunity to change up content? I know there's no "right" answer, but I'd like to hear how other folks have handled jumping back in after similar breaks.

Building on +Jensan Thuresson's suggestions: if you have a WordPress blog, the "save draft" feature is awesome for this. Every time you have an idea, go to your admin page, type the idea into the subject line, then save as draft and walk away.

Plus, one idea will often spawn several more, so you'll often "draft" a handful of posts at once this way.

I was talking to my friend Mark about mountain biking a while back when he mentioned linking together a bunch of shorter trails around the town of Golden: You start at my office, go up South Table Mountain, over to North Table Mountain, up Chimney Gulch and the Lookout Mountain trails, and then over

+Nathanael Cole... not sure why, but it is not letting me reply directly to your question, so hopefully you see this. Short answer is you can definitely set up quick access templates in OneNote, but I think the process would be best explained through video. I'll try to work something up soon. As to the "perfect" template, I find I'm always tweaking my stuff after the fact, so I'm not sure such a thing exists ;)

Just under 48 hours left to back HABITAT, the space junk strategy game! They are fully funded, and just over $10k away from hitting their first stretch goals! Let's make it happen! #kickstarter   #videogames   #space  
Save humankind by assembling space stations. Build, upgrade, fly, and fight with space junk on the edge of Earth’s orbit.

Okay, I have an odd dungeon crawl that is likely on the horizon in my game. My players are going to need to go into a dungeon that was previously looted by a major archaological expedition to either replace a major magic item that is in their possession, or destroy the mummy it set free.

I'd love ideas for ways to make a dungeon that was previously bypassed still challenging.

Current ideas:
Undead now animated by the mummy
Sprung traps with ongoing hazardous effects
Barriers set up by the recently unleashed tenant (will likely only have been out a few weeks)

Anyone else got any brilliant ideas?

The version I'm playing in this video is a VERY early dev build. It's changed pretty significantly since this video was posted.

Okay, I have added a link to a blank version of my notebook in the video description. Feel free to grab it and download a copy for yourselves. The blank version is a work in progress. I will continue to add to it as time permits.

+Andrew Turbott Hrmm... Apparently OneDrive wont let you download unless you have full edit access to the file... which is stupid. Anyway, I exported the notebook as a .Onepkg file (like a .zip for OneNote) You should be able to download it here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/r2lsimgcqduhy8m/Blank%20Campaign.onepkg

When you first open the file, you'll be prompted to set the notebook name and file save path. I'm using OneNote 2013 now, so if you're on an earlier version I can't promise this technique will work.
