I like that you have as many as 3 people working under you in this endeavor. Some good stuff should come of this. Funny thing is that my cousin just got hired by Jinx and there he is on "your team". I love that they hire creative staff who are immersed in teh culture. No good "rules lawyer" stories, just a funny DM who had these original Gygax books. You'd think you got a critical hit and all you did was chop a guy's nose off, reducing his Charisma to 0. :(

E3? Gencon? PAXs? You live the life on a Uni-pega-Kitten firing lazers... I have to say that Cons are fun. This was been my second year at KublaCon, and it's been a blast. When you go to Gencon, are you going to check out any of the independent RPGs and Tabletop games? Looking forward to that report.

Interestingly enough you can get the GR series on Valve (a great place since they've rereleased a lot of old classics like XCOM!). As a Mac Fan, have you checked out Valve's Steam for Mac? Friends say it is a little glitchy still, but Portal and TF2 work well... Seems like the lament that Mac Users don't get enough game support may come to an end.

I can't find my Deluxe Edition. It was pretty awesome, and it is somewhere in the parents attic... On a note... http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-7203 You can purchase the rules via pdf. Their product page is pretty cool too. http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/ I need a Nook.

Well, you'll know your availability more so than the rest of us (even though we may push). The big one up here is the Kublacon at the end of May. Bay Area focus, but I've met people from all over the state (and some out of state). Minis galore and RPG madness!

Will, and why aren't you doing this at other Cons??? You could be raising so much for Child's Play (from me, particularly). Bay Area geeks would be fighting for table space... Sigh.

I'm counting on another Acquisitions Inc. session for my commute. So looking forward to it. You should roll this... http://www.frpgames.com/new/cart.php?m=product_detail&p=55753

Memories. I got started in middle school where our DM was our history teacher (he had one of the first D&D shops in CA back in the day). I've never met anyone as good a DM as he was. He had fun with the criticals and would pull out these little books to refence. Imagine the disappointment after rolling 2 natural 20's and finding out you chopped the orc's nose off and reduced his already pitiful CH to 0. As for a suggestion that may entice Nolan, check out THW. http://www.angelfire.com/az3/twohourwargames/ Miniature game (with NO set minis and NO set scale) with a RPG feel to it. They have some freebies to check out. I recently purchased their All Things Zombies and 5150 sets.

Wil, Had to post for the SJ area and shout out about beer goodness. There is a little hole-in-the-wall pub (much like Old Town Pub in Dena. i will shed a tear at its passing) called Trials that has cask aged ales that are oh so good and a fine selection of Single Malts.
