Thanks guys.  Its fun to write this column with Gus.  Although when I am writing and looking for projects I have to hide my wallet first. :)

CT is a good partner. I enjoy working the PC side of things...introduces me to a lot of potential gaming I would not otherwise find, like that awesome looking Arc Magica game.

You do know that Ars Magica has been around about 25 years as a tabletop RPG, right?

http://rpggeek.com/rpgfamily/1029/ars-magica

It was one of the original "gritty realism" RPGs from the 80s that was developed as the "anti-D&D"
Those games all seemed to proliferate right around the time the D&D cartoon was on Saturday mornings

A big thanks to Gus and the guys for picking up the slack for this week's GARPA while I was without power.

You're good. Take care of yourself and get your house back in order. We'll manage until you're ready :)

Not a problem, Tent. Ironically right after I submitted the last GARPA I unexpectedly fell of the radar helping cleanup in NYC with family friends.

A little update on the Kingdom Death : Monster project we covered in GARPA #7  http://grogheads.com/garpa-7.html


I saw this morning that it broke the $2 million barrier last night before funding ended.  Did any of you guys end up getting in on that project?

GARPA #10 is up today.  http://grogheads.com/garpa-10.html

I can't believe they've let Gus and I keep yammering on this long. :)

They always find some cool stuff. Fortunately I've managed to avoid blowing any cash on these projects, but I know that some day I'm going to crack.

This Sergeants Miniatures Game thing really intrigues me and I would live to jump in on it but I can see the costs to continue in the series skyrocketing with all the extras available. Its like my ASL addiction all over again.
