|At first, this kid is thinking "DAMMIT"|
About the best thing I can manage of late is a mashup, and there've been no end of mashups for me this past few months. I will put the peanut butter of DCC with any sort of chocolate, and so I've tried some Scooby-Doo/Space Dungeon mashup (it was good on paper), and this diesel-punk/Grease/Thundarr Mashup from a couple of
|my first encounter with Amy Brightower indelibly affected my thinking, I'm sure.|

(hypocrisy noted) Also, I've gone through and invested in a couple of things - +Mike Evan's Kickstarter for Hubris delivered a final PDF product, which excites me very much. Gets my juices flowing. Since I drafted this post back in the Spring (gadzooks!) I also toyed with Beyond The Wall, which was maybe the most fun I've had gaming in a while - with a good group and some up-front bravery, you can have an amazing setting right from the start and the world-building and relationships go hand-in-hand. Lastly, I got +cecil howe 's very moody and evocative, and existentially chilly, add-on called "Do Not Let Us Die in The Dark Night of This Cold Winter". It's about trying to keep a quaint village from freezing and starving into non-existence, and since I cannot help to imagine what would happen if I combine this and that, I will probably try to build a village with some friends and BtW and THEN destroy it with winter. On reflection, it bums me out but it could be fun to play with a heater on and some hot chocolate and warm socks. Segue into a weird world beyond the village, and in comes the Hubris thing, we're golden. Some nefarious force is causing winter (not GoT, I know I know). I had a good character last year in Pinkie, the synthetic-man Cleric of Santa, but I digress.
Anyways, thanks for watching. You may have noticed I have not updated the DCC Class List for some time - my G+ associate +Stephen Murrish is ably keeping better track lately than I am able or inclined to do. If you catch broken links, let me know and I may or may not update them (a problem is the blogger app for iOS is shelved and doesn't work anymore, which partially explains my low frequency of postings...)
