Shinies: CAD and Pellatarrum

South Bend folks: We have our very own Banksy, y’all. CAD is my new hero. I was going to grab a camera this weekend and go hunting for all the easter-egg stencil art tags I’ve been seeing around town, but s/he saved me the trouble. All it took was a quick search for the signature “CAD flower bomb” I’ve seen in a few places.  I just wish the locations were posted along with the pics, so I could watch for the ones I haven’t spotted yet when I’m out and about.

This – this is a thing that makes me happy.

Let’s be clear about this: I’m still no fan of D&D in any of its incarnations. However, a writer I quite like (Erin Palette of Curse/Or fame) has just published the first installment of her fantasy campaign setting in Claw/Claw/Bite magazine. Erin has posted previews of her Pellatarrum setting on Lurking Rhythmically, but I’m glad to see her RPG work paying off, too.

Go grab a copy of CCB if you can — issue 18 is on sale at RPG Now for $2.99 at the moment.

Also, if you haven’t been to her blog, you really should. Y’know, especially if you’re into “hot goth-girl beseeching action!” Or awesome modern mythic fiction. Or gaming. Or guns. Or Discordianism. Or sarcasm ++. Oh, hell, just go visit her already.

Dammit. I want those boots. So unfair.

Do you have a permit for that?

Yes. Brain is fried, and all the bosses have fled for the afternoon. The cheese stands alone. (Mmm. Cheese.)

Well, okay, now I’m alone. My partner in web-content creation just handed me a bunch of stories to edit and post, and then she fled, too.  Le sigh.

Lovely winter wonderland outside, though. Lovely, and slippery, and frigid.  As if I didn’t already want to go home and build a nest on the couch…

Settling in & SMT:SJ

Well, so far I like WordPress, so that’s a bonus. I plan to mod this theme a bit with my own graphics when I have time, but that will have to wait. Minor annoyance: WP didn’t import the tags with my posts, so I’ll have to go back and re-tag everything. Ah, well.

Also:Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey is finally out.  I’m a little concerned that my DS screen isn’t reading input as well as it used to, but hopefully that’s just the fault of the obnoxiously engineered Puzzle Quest Galactrix.
