The great word dump

Due to [insert long and unpleasant story here] the plans I had for last weekend fell through, which means I now have a giant bag of polyhedral dice, fake nunchucks, and several yards of gold lamé and nothing do do with them. (If you need a Halloween costume for a nerdy ninja superhero, hit me […]

Make it work

For a while I’ve been frustrated by an inability to take Star and Scribe any further.
