I walk past an old stump of a tree, remembering how last week I saw a lizard poking its head out of the hole in the stump's center.

Is he strong? Listen,

re-engineered blood...

Daddy-O's Reviews


Overall, I really enjoyed the new big-budget, big-screen Spiderman movie... but I do have a few questions. For example, I loved seeing his first home-made costume, featuring a red sweatshirt with black stenciling... but how did he get from that to the incredibly fancy and detailed Spidey-suit he has in the very next scene? It's not like he had the money to pay for it....

#12's Webcomic picks

"I enjoyed that game so much it's not even funny. It's probably my favorite game on the 3DO console. I picked it up the day it came out and was totally crazy about it the moment I first played it. It's a shame the system and the game didn't sell well because both the console and the game we're great. Icebreaker will always be in my top 10 favorite games that I've ever played and I thought I'd take a moment to write you and tell you that." -- A fan named Joe, via e-mail

What's New?

What's Going On? The Nanofictionary Cardsheets Are Done!
It's been well over a year since I first came up with the concepts for Nanofictionary, so I'm very pleased to finally say that it's ready to go the printers! I've been putting the finishing touches on the final cardsheets all week; we'll be giving our team one last chance to look everything over tonight, and tomorrow we'll be sending the finished files to Carta Mundi. Yay! Here's what the final cardsheet will look like:

Now here's the bad news: We're running so late with this project (we still need to design the tuckbox) that we aren't going to be able to have finished decks for sale until Gen-Con. We're still hoping that by committing to the printing of the cardsheets now, we'll at least have the first batch of sample cards at Origins (so we can use them to run the first ever tournament) but even that is not guaranteed.

In other news, we're getting ready to host another Pop Tart Cafe at Balticon this weekend, and it should be great fun. For one thing, it will provide me with the opportunity to play through the long list of new Icehouse games we're thinking of putting in the next issue of Hypothermia. (Far from making much progress on the list I posted last week, it instead has grown longer, with several more games, such as Edges, Breakthrough, and Roll the Ball having been brought to my attention.) Furthermore, we have something special planned for those who'd like to try Hailstorm with the new Casino rules: chocolate poker chips! I'm sure there'll be other surprises in store as well: For one thing, there's that rumor about something new codenamed Secret Project 641-CD... (Plus, we're planning to hold an Origins planning meeting!) Anyway, it's all happening Saturday and Sunday nights at the Wyndham Baltimore Inner Harbor Hotel. Join us if you can!

the story so far

Thought Residue
There's been a big shake-up and power shift at Kristin's old company, TSI-TelSys, and our old Fearless Leader Jim Chesney is back on the board of directors! Since we're still hanging onto a heap of devalued TSI stock, we're hopeful Jim can help get his old company back on the right track.
I really enjoy the Target TV ads. They're like little music videos. (Have you seen the new one, featuring "Orange You Glad It's Summer?" by the B-52s?) I think Target should collect them all together on a DVD and give 'em out free with a $25 purchase...
