New Cover for the Firefly RPG

Popping in quick today to share with you the new Firefly RPG cover. The illustrated cover we posted previously will be a full page title piece. We’ll be making an announcement next week to clarify the release date. The text has been approved; we’re now zeroing in on the art. Time-stamping this update: March 27, 2014. Otherwise, if you’re reading this far into the future, you may not realize this news is time-sensitive!

We are still taking pre-orders, by the way. Here’s the link!

And here’s the back. What do you think? Is over 30 pre-generated characters and 75+ NPCs enough? Hee.

Shamrock Shuffle

Celtic Shamrock Color

For the holidays, our tradition is to explore different recipes related to that special day. We tend to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day because it’s so close to my birthday and my partner is Irish. This year, I’m making Shepherd’s Pie, Irish soda bread, and blackberry custard with liqueur for dinner. I picked up a cappuccino stout to go with, too, and will likely be diving into Skyrim after the work day is done.

We’d definitely like to visit Ireland some day and visit with friends and family. The island has a rich history and, like many countries, I’d like to read more about it. Funny how the holiday has changed so much from its 17th century origins as a religious feast day (there used to be a LOT more of these) to a pseudo-celebration of the Irish culture. That’s what time and our ever-expanding civilization does, I suppose!

Hope you have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!!!

Illuminate! LuminAID

Yin Yang Dragon Avatar

My friend Kerrie Hughes linked to an article about LuminAID on Facebook the other day. I checked into this further, and the solar-powered light has a cool story behind it.

The LuminAID solar light was designed to fulfill the basic need for light in post-natural disaster situations shortly after the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti. When thinking about what we could design to make a difference, we decided to focus on affordable, renewable light because it had the potential to greatly improve the comfort, safety, and survival of disaster victims. — SOURCE: LuminAID.com

The light is available to buy or donate. For less than $30 you can get one and give one. I love the fact that the light weighs less than four ounces, is totally packable, and solves a basic need. Science is cool.

    Mood: It’s PI DAY!!!
    Caffeinated Beverages Consumed: Yep, soda is a problem. Very clearly.
    Work-Out Minutes Logged Yesterday: I hang my head in shame. Diet’s going well though!
    In My Ears: Not one, but TWO fish tanks.
    Game Last Played: Tetris
    Book Last Read: A huge pile o’ reference books.
    Movie Last Viewed: Push
    Latest Artistic Project: National Craft Month
    Latest Fiction/Comic Release: Last Man Zombie Standing
    Latest Game Release: Freedom Flyer
    What I’m Working On: Primarily tie-in games work and novels.
