It isn't too late for you to get in on Hero Generation -- a procedural strategy "roguelike" built around a legacy system in which you play many generations of a family.  Seems cool to me and it's already funded with some cool stretch goals worth driving for now.

I'd just be happy with a WiiU port or something. It's turn based anyhow, why not create a "chronicle" mode where you cycle turns between 3 players, each with their own Hero?
It could be like Dokapon Kingdom, only less... wacky. And more open-ended.

New scarf! Started in December and got it done just in time to put it away for six months. Sigh!

Cathy didn't like that pose and prefered the one where I was looking into the camera lens.  I think the drama is a little corny, but prefered it of the two pictures.

I have added some text about God's Mouth to the description doc and I will attempt to recruit a new player. 

+Mike Holmes, it's all you!

I could try. I've only been skimming this but the concept is very interesting. How do I get started?

I find myself increasingly frustrated that I can't +1 stuff everywhere.  Comments at the newspaper, forums, everything.  I would never have predicted that; I even thought it was a toxic artifact.

Yes!  Someone +1s something of mine and I want to be like "hey, I see you!" and being able to +1 their +1 would do that.  Or appreciating that someone got the humor in a response or something.

Stay classy, South Carolina!

"You're facilitating the problem if you give...a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don't think too much further than that. And so what you've got to do is you've got to curtail that type of behavior. They don't know any better."

After spending years in SC with the Navy, I'm just happy that he didn't use the "n" word to describe the people he was thinking of.

Welcome to the game, +Tim Jensen!

Read the rules in the About this community section and follow the link to the folder of Google docs.  Check out a few of the maps along the timeline.  Look at the non-map documents and pay particular attention to the Turn Action Randomizer as that'll give you instructions on your turn.  Also review the post Alexander made about suggestions for play.

And ask us questions!

I'll place you at the end of the turn-order and you'll get 'plussed in' by the player before you so that you're summoned to take your turn. 

I need to grant you edit permissions to the folder of Google Docs and that requires an email address.  You can tell me here which one to use to invite or you can email me at clweeks at Google's mail domain and I'll get you added.

Those instructions are how I do it on my Mac or Windows machines, through the GDocs/Drive interface that looks as depicted in this post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117184575738442924541/posts/Ex3xrRQLwDr

Do let me know if that makes sense when you have a chance to check on it.  

I haven't even tried to do this on my phone (which doesn't generally play with GDocs very nicely) and don't have a tablet.

I've added a new action to our sheet.

In order to decrease the apparent tiled nature of the map, add a feature that spans the joint between two or more tiles.  Alternatively, move an extant feature over a little so that it spans two or more tiles.

I chose not to recruit or add a small map at this time.

+Mike Holmes, you're up!

socks and sandals

If you have an opinion about socks with sandals, how did you come to your opinion?  Do you feel strongly about it?

Where I went to college, we had seasons where it was in the 30's in the morning, mid 70's in the afternoon, and back down to the 30's.  We had a lot of mixed fashion trends because of the weather.  The other obvious one was shin-length wrap skirt over jeans, which always confused me.
