It also contains the details of a giveaway where you can get a free copy of both Misspent Youth and its only (current) supplement Sell Out With Me. Each misspent youth session is a story in 7 acts where a group of youthful offenders resist the machinations of an Authority. Its punk, its rules light, and its a blast.

Three reviews on Thursday.

I had a few hours to kill tonight and decided to get a few product reviews out there. When it comes to the sales platforms used by most RPGs (Itch, DTRPG, etc.,) reviews really help get their products seen, and so few buyers ever think to leave them. I decided to remedy this. Each review was posted on Itch.io, which is problematic since I don’t know for sure that Itch has fully implemented reviews on their platform.

BookLog 2011.05.29 — Botany For Gardeners: Third Edition — Introduction to California Plant Life, Revised Edition

Been a bit since I’ve posted anything here, luckily I can’t imagine I’d have “regulars” so I’m not in any way, shape, or form, worried about it. I’d imagine the only readers of this blog are those brought in by the occasional Google result. As my career/educational goals have moved from the technical to the botanical, so to has my preference in casual reading moved to more botanical horizons. Botany For Gardeners: Third Edition By Brian Capon As a long time home gardener pursuing higher education in Botany (or as its often re-titled, Plant Sciences) I found this while poking around for introductory works that would extend on that which I’d learned in my first biology course, and provide some framework for more centrally botanical classwork.

BookLog 2010.04.14 — Bonk by Mary Roach — Hackmaster Basic from Kenzer and Co — Pathfinder by Paizo

I’ve picked up a pile of books lately, but haven’t had much in the way of time to read them. I’m in the middle of writing a module for Labyrinth Lord, I’ve been trying to go to the gym (and playing hookie as I write this), and I’m plotting a special getaway next week with someone, all of which eats time. I’m going to continue reading Bonk by Mary Roach I think.

BookLog 2010.03.29 — Your Inner Fish: A Journey into the 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body

Your Inner Fish: A Journey into the 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body Well I finally finished this one, and I have to say I was still loving it to the very last word. Living in a nation that, more often than not, has seemed to turn its back on the sciences and any semblance of progress it’s quite the breath of fresh air to read a best-selling popular science text.

BookLog 2010.02.17 — And another Thing… by Eoin Colfer — Red Land Black Land — Your Inner Fish

And Another Thing… – Eoin Colfer – Douglas Adams’s Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy: 6of3. I finally finished Eoin Colfers addition to Douglas Noah Adams seminal trilogy in three parts, and I have to say, I really liked it. This text has received alot of harsh criticism, and much of it seems to be not of the “I read this book and it was a pile of fetid dingo’s kidneys” type, but rather more the “I will never read this book, a Hitchhikers book by another author is a SIN AGAINST NATURE” type.
