Surprise! I found back all the files of the Void Beaver dungeon we crafted a loooong time ago and I assembled everything together.

This was originally a initiative by +Karl Stjernberg and +Jfur.
Karl drew the cover and the map while Jennifer assembled everything together and edited the text into something gameable. I then contributed more than a dozen illustrations.

Enjoy and beware of the Void!

The pens in the cup are the pens that I have filled with ink recently (or come prefilled in the case of the Microns). The pens lined up on the desk are the pens in my drawer of shame (random ebay purchases with a mix of fine, flex, and curved nibs).

From the pens in the cup:
My favorite is the Noodler's Ahab (the big blue on in the cup) with a flex nib, although I do like the Noodler's Charlie that came with my Heart of Darkness ink. It has a fine nib, but can give a range of line widths.

The black one is the cup is a Duke that I want to change to a flex nib. I like the weight and size of the pen, but I don't like the nib.

I have two Preppy's: one with standard ink and one as an eyedropper filled with Cactus Green that I use for grading.

Microns got me restarted in pen and are what I used for my Tales From Chicory drawings.

My Free/Libre Open Source Software talk went well that I had scheduled during Open Education Week 2018 ( Thanks for the help with ideas! I focused on tasks that needed to be accomplished as opposed to listing commercial software and their open-source equivalent. If you want to watch the video, it is available at:

If you are an educator (or interested) and want to see the other sessions that we presented for Open Education Week 2018, you can find them here:
Topics included finding open resources, adopting open resources, making open resources, reading with open resources, open access journals, copyright, and open-source software.

Turn 1269

Add a tile to (12,-11)
"Add the tile listed in column E to the map, but stretch yourself artistically (hand-drawing, collage, new digital tool, whatever). And tell us about what you did that's new!

This weekend, I am going to load up my new fountain pens with ink and draw this square! The past couple of days of work have worn me out.

+Mischa Krilov: your turn!

Turn 1260

I added the North Glacier Station as an active station to the Underground in tile (3,8)

To make the action clearer, I removed the reference to "the third or fourth person to trigger this event..."

I increased the chance of Fauna & Flora from 5 to 8.

+LaShanda S. Simmons or +Victor Andrade!!!

Does anyone in my circles play Magic: the Gathering online, either using MGTO or using hang outs and playing with cards (or some other way)?

Solo-A-Module Month:
Play a published module solo! Post an Actual Play! Answer the age old question: How do you play a published module solo!

I created a "Solo-a-Module Month" Category. Although "March Module Month" was suggested, I wanted to keep the month out of it (like SGAM). Feel free to post there as well as go beyond March.

I know I have some teachers and educators in my g+ world. Are you doing anything for Open Education Resources (OER) week? If you are unfamiliar with OER, think open source for educational material.

Turn 1252

Start your turn by copying this notice and the below bounties and quests forward. Take your turn following normal protocol. If you have fulfilled any of the bounties, add a choice token to your pool for every turn between the current one and the one on which the bounty was issued, and remove the bounty from the list. Maximum bounty is 20 Choice Tokens.

(1251): Add to the entry at the Map Location Description

Add to the Who's Who
I accomplish this Quest:
Add an entry into the Who' who document that includes a picture for Arnast himself

Arnast the Dreamer, the Mad (Arnastden) [1,10]
Arnast the Dreamer recently claimed ownership of several lands around his keep in the upper North and named it Arnastden. He appears to live alone in his keep, but visitors have observed him having many conversations to empty space. He doesn’t live in the keep alone.

I then spend two of those tokens to not take the two other required actions (another Add to the Who's Who and Move Someone). Because all three actions were required, I remove the required component of the Add to the Who's Who.

Your turn, +LaShanda S. Simmons
