Could you be more transparent?

"Whats the game called?"

"Huh, what game?"

At least give her a dice bag or a plastic sword...

Friday night at the Lair

I'm so excited!
Friday night is "Slumber Party Nite". My favorite part is Sorority nude Twister, and after that we LARP some GOR.
Good times.

It really is a web

The internets is a crazy thing. This morning, "She who must be obeyed" was getting ready for work, while I was sitting here looking over the mornings Email. She asked me to look up a certain hair product she was interested in. Of course- I obeyed.

I didn't find what she was looking for, but in my Googling I ran across an article on hair-more precisely beards-even more precisely the history of beards and how they were used in ancient times.

Did you know that Alexander the Great banned beards in his army after he found out that the enemy were grabbing his men by their beards and pulling them off of their mounts? I immediately started thinking of game applications for this (or at the least a blog post). It really is a great article. Give it a read.

I didn't go to bed last night thinking I needed to research beards today, and yet here we are.

I think its funny how searching for one thing on the world wide web can lead you places you've never been (and a few you should never go to -note to self- clean the cache).

Thank God for Al Gore and his wonderful creation.

Spiral bound Legends of Steel - Savage Worlds Edition on sale for $15.00 at Cafe Press

Cafe Press is now carrying spiral bound versions of LoS-Savage Worlds Edition. I know that spiral bound books are not the preferred choice among many people, I must say that these aint so bad, It's kinda cool that they lie flat. I ordered one last week and it arrived today, and the best part is, according to the Customer service rep over at Cafe Press, these will ship to Europe and Canada for a much more reasonable rate than Lulu. And until I come to my senses you can get a copy for just $15.00!

And if you are in the market for a nifty LoS Jersey, we have those too.

Used Bookstore score of the day: Casca!

I'm an admitted fan of pulp fiction. from the classic adventure stories of Louis L'Amour to the "Adult Western" adventures of Captain Gringo. Today I happened upon a coup that only another pulp paperback aficionado could appreciate:
The first four books in the Casca series by Barry Sadler. The Casca series chronicles the adventures of Casca Rufio Longinus A simple Roman Legionnaire who had the misfortune to draw guard duty during the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

In Sadler's version of the legend, Casca's only concern that day was getting together with a wine shop wench for a little fun after he was relieved at guard duty. Thinking to put and end to his charges misery and get off work early he stabbed Christ with his spear, trying to put a quick end to it all. Jesus was not amused and cursed the legionnaire to eternal life, eternal life as a soldier always going from one battle to another, never knowing peace, until Christ's return.

Each book in the series tells the story of Casca as he lives and fights through the ages. The Casca books are quick, fun reads packed with action and a surprising amount of detail. During the 80's and 90's the books were easy to get, but as the years go by they are becoming a rare find at the local bookstores. If any of you guys run across them, they are definitely worth the read.
