I don't want to pull Wil's blog too off topic, so here's a link to my entry on why I was leaving the fan club and mailing list. It has links to the first new release without him: http://thespian.livejournal.com/1538476.html

Even BNL without Steve Page? Because, having been a fan of theirs since the yellow tape days, I kinda think they've lost it of late.

y'all gave me one of my best con stories EVER with that signed brush, too. Seriously, I wasn't going to get anything signed (I've met Paul and Storm a half dozen times, and organized a JoCo concert at a bookstore that they dropped in on), and generally I don't do the signing thing. But the idea of getting the hairbrush signed just seemed so over the top I totally had to do it. (Storm: "Paul, I think this is our first hairbrush."). The fact you *recognized it* when I brought it out still cracks me the hell up. (btw, I forgot to tell you that the Monty Python Fluxx has the Castle expansion in it, which is minor, but for some reason I was thinking I should tell you. Apparently Kristin Looney from Looney Labs was wandering all over PAX 2009 looking to give you a copy, so she's happy one got to you eventually ;-) ) Thes.

So, uhm. I've been unemployed, living from pitifully paid freelance job to freelance job for the last couple years. I'm going to PAX because the Compleat Strategist people needed someone to demonstrate Looney Labs Games, and I did publicity for the Looneys a few years ago and have done a few trade shows *including* ones where I demoed games, so I know what they need done. But it means that I'm going to be on the trade show floor during all the interesting things you're doing. But if you check out the dealers, and you go by the Compleat Strategist, I'd totally love to play Fluxx with you. Or some Icehouse stuff. Or you know, just say hi. You absolutely don't need to hunt me down, but if you're passing that booth, I'm the tabby haired fat girl doing demos (and tell JoCo that Stephanie who organized his concert at Pandemonium is working the Strategist and would love to say hi). (so weird to be doing a trade show for them. Hadn't heard of them in YEARS but I remember them from cheap 1/8th page ads set in courier font in the back of Dragon Magazine in 1983.)

I have a complete set of the Endless Quest Books (Pillars or Pentegarn, et al), 5 of the 6 Pick-a-Path to Adventure books (Same as the Endless Quest, but based on the cartoon), and... One copy of Heart Quest #1, Ring of the Ruby Dragon. "Pick a Path to Romance and Adventure!", romance in the AD&D world. It was a gift from an ex in my early 30s when I talked about how, as a girl who gamed and read comics and stuff, in the mid-80s, I had scorned the books and mocked them, but while I was being a completionist with the Endless Quest stuff, it bothered me that I didn't have them. It has a colour plate by Elmore, btw.
