I am going to get to the big step forward later but I am going to tell you a story first.
My step son is an artist. He qualified with a degree in Fine Art last year and to the best of my knowledge he is the only one of his contemporaries that is actually keeping body and soul together working in art.… Read the rest

White Star has about 40 ‘meditations’ which are direct one to one equivalents of OSR/OGL D&D spells.… Read the rest
