Gary Gygax passed away this morning.

I’m going to go color in some dice numbers w crayons and think about how chainmail & dnd changed and created genres beyond counting.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, no worries. Someone will explain it.

So, I'm watching this video and it's a great discourse on religion and the US. Even for non Obama fans (which I'm not particularly a massive fan of thus far), it's got some really good points in it for both sides. Give it a try, would be interested to see what others think.

We'd been going to hold off on the announcement until next weekend, but as it turns out the cat was already let out of the bag over on Tribe, so I figured I'd note it here as well. RenProd received the nod from the city of Folsom to produce the 2008 Folsom Renaissance Faire. I'd posted yesterday right after I got the call and was just so elated, as much or more from the weight of the waiting and wondering being lifted as anything.

Marti and I pulled together just an incredibly amazing proposal (easily the largest doc I've ever written for a non-day job), I should have had it count toward the November writing month since it was well over 15,000 words by itself.

Anyway, so there it is, and now it's time to start churning towards a great 2008 season.

On an aside: like with our pick up of Tahoe, we won't have any bashing of the other folks who were bidding. It's rather like post election time, now the energy needs to go into making a great event, not in anyone being better than the next guy/gal.
