SaSS:R (tabletop game system)

Continuing the Trial

My wife’s party of adventurers has been exploring the dungeon I whipped up and the neighboring towns, while I experiment with and explore Dungeon Crawl Classics.

Lions of Judah: Altered Reality

Generally legally limited due to concerns about privacy and safety, the practice of altering perceptions of reality to include digital information, visuals, and other artificially generated sensory stimuli, Altered Reality (AR) is nonetheless a common technology among the governmental and military elite, who use it for sorting through large volumes of information quickly. In its […]
