1) For folks who are still waiting for the Twenty Palace prequel, I have already self-published a number of short stories and novellas. None of them are in the 20P universe, but one is a historical fantasy set near Seattle in 1879, and the rest are second world fantasies. Some have never been published anywhere else: Kindle | Nook
2) Note for folks who visit that B&N page: I’m not the photographer, and I’ve never published scraped text through Hephaestus Books
3) Today is my tenth anniversary. The traditional gift is an ebook, right?
4) Last night we had our anniversary dinner. We ate steaks from Don and Joe’s, roast beets, green beans, and fingerling potatoes, a fancy cheese that I lost the label for and can’t ID right now, a delicious tiny lemon cheesecake from The Confectional, and a bottle of Beringer Cab from 1997 that we bought for our wedding. Thumbs up to all of it.
5) My son read a D&D comic and now wants to play the game. Do I have time to run a fantasy campaign? Shit to the no.

Surely we can fix your D&D deficit somehow by mobilizing the troops & producing minimal impact on your own time commitments. :)
As embarrassing as it is to say, just adding D&D to my schedule is probably too much. I don’t think I could make a weekly game session, even if my kid was totally into it.
Harry, if there’s an FLGS nearby, find out if they’re running D&D Encounters. It’s a couple of hours a week and doesn’t require a lot of commitment.
Larry, FLGS? I don’t know what that is.
FLGS = Friendly Local Game Store.
You’re in the wrong part of the country for me to help out with specifics, though. I’ve got a couple of protogamers around here that are around the same age, I think…
FLGS, as already stated is Friendly Local Gaming Store. The link I posted will let you search for stores near you that are running D&D Encounters.
The D&D board games (Castle Ravenloft, Wrath of Ashardalon) are a good way to get family D&D done. They’re pretty quick and kids love the components (especially the weirder monsters).
Thanks for that. I figured it was something like that.
A local shop runs a weekly game, just starting a “Beyond the Crystal Cave” campaign. But it’s already started and runs for 16 weeks. I’ll have to look into the next event.
Thanks, Mike. I’ll check that out.
That’s entirely up to you Harry, but “Beyond the Crystal Cave” is the current DnD Encounters season and it’s only just started this past Wednesday. They’re designed to run as pickup games so coming into mid-stream shouldn’t be a problem. Unless the GM near you is odd like that.
Hmm. You make a point there. It is the holiday season, so I have extra demands on my schedule, but maybe I can work something out with the family.
