stuff

I'm halfway written the next piece of Wrath of Denethenor, but hit a snag. Alexander (22months) broke his leg (spiral fracture), both legs are in casts from toes to all the way up to his chest to immobilise him. Kinda busy for the next couple of weeks... life eh! I've even gone back and started on the next piece of 7th Link as well.

gonna be kinda busy for the next 4 weeks.

An RPG show thats funny?

There is a new web series in the works,

http://www.goblinsandgold.com/csp/gold/

Check out the prologue, I thought it was quite hilarious but my wife was kinda 'meh' about it.

The premise is about a set of professional Gamers who play AD&D for a living. OK its not AD&D its "Goblins and Gold" etc.
