Promoting a cause, Gaming & Links

  Support rape crisis centers and enter to win an Advance Copy of Red Hood’s Revenge, by Jim C. Hines.
I'm a sucker for a good cause.

Gaming: Looking for some old school D&D fun? Here are some classic adventures, available for download.

I ran a 4th edition (D&D for those who aren't in the gaming community) last night at a FLGS (Friendly Local Game Store). I got there late, thanks to missing my bus. I started as quickly as possible as the mod looked like one that would run a little long. I was right, but managed to wrap things up 4.5 hours later, more or less.

I managed to bloody someone every combat, so I did my job. I challenged the PCs and gave them a fun game. We were well into the second combat when the warlock (woman seated next to me), finally managed to hit something. She needed some help, but she connected. I led a round of applause for her. It drew the attention of the other tables, especially the one in the next room that was playing the same adventure.

Crafts: Autobiographical tapestry (I bet you never thought you'd hear those words applied to anything this century)

Websites I found interesting:
I drool over this house
She posts a Gaelic phrase everyday on Twitter, & now she's offering a song on her blog
Know someone who loves photography? Then maybe you should get this book, Who Shot That?, about the photographers taht shot some of the most iconic photographs.
I watched this video & I'm still not sure that I believe it. It's mostly in German, but words are pretty much unnecessary. It's about 9 minutes long.
This is a really neat (& fairly easy) way to do watercolor stencils. She did a portrait, but I could see trying other scenes, too.
