This weekend is my fifth wedding anniversary so that’s occupying my time. Rather than leave you with nothing, check out this great article on introducing that “special someone” to RPGs.

When my son is old enough to play som No Thank You, Evil! she might be willing to try it again for an epic trip into Storia!

See you all next week!
